“We are very pleased to announce that we are expanding Two Roads’ distribution to Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia,” said Two Roads Director of Sales, Meghan Zachry. “Both distributors have a strong commitment to excellence and great teams that align perfectly with our Two Roads philosophy of taking the road less traveled. We look forward to expanding into this craft-centered region and sharing our passion for making great beer with the retailers and craft beer fans in the area.”
Two Roads Brewing Company was founded in 2012 by four friends who dreamed for years of starting a craft brewery. The company they created fosters a “road less traveled” philosophy in the beers they make and how they make them. In that spirit, Phil Markowski, their award-winning Brewmaster and 25 year craft beer veteran, has created an extensive lineup that takes a unique twist on classic beer styles.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to team up with Two Roads Brewing in the Maryland and Washington, DC markets,” commented Erin Taylor, General Manager of Legends Limited. “Their reputation, commitment, and level of quality are what attracted us to the brand and we look forward to a successful partnership with their amazing team of people. Their fantastic line-up of beers will make a great addition to our existing portfolio.”
Robb MacDonald, General Manager of Specialty Beverage also added, “Specialty Beverage is committed to working with the industry’s best brewers and suppliers. In line with this commitment, we are extremely proud and grateful for the opportunity to partner with Two Roads Brewing Company. Together, we look forward to introducing their world class products to retailers and consumers in Virginia.”

ABOUT SPECIALTY BEVERAGE
Originally founded in 1991, Specialty Beverage began distributing craft and imported beer, cider, wine and non-alcoholic beverages throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Over the next two decades, as consumer interest and demand for these quality products continued to accelerate, Specialty Beverage was acquired by the Sheehan Family Companies in 2009.
ABOUT LEGENDS LIMITED
Originally founded in 1994, Legends Limited had their beginnings when Pat and Sherri Casey could not find a reputable distributor in the Maryland area for their imported brands. Legends’ first warehouse was located at the old National Brewery building in Brewers Hill, Baltimore. In 2009, they were acquired by the Sheehan Family Companies. Legends Limited proudly offers a portfolio of craft brands, ciders, imported brands, and craft spirits. Legends is committed to working with the best suppliers and to providing the highest levels of customer service and satisfaction to their retailing partners in the Maryland and Washington, DC markets.
