Switchback Brewing Co. Completes Distribution Coverage in Massachusetts

Switchback Brewing Company, Vermont’s first 100% employee-owned brewery, is excited to announce they are completing distribution coverage in the state of Massachusetts, by teaming up with Horizon Beverage in the Boston and Cape Cod region and Girardi Distributors in western and northern parts of the state.

Switchback Brewing Co. beers have been available throughout much of the state over the last few years, starting with Williams Distributing in Western MA, Quality Beverages in Central/Southeastern MA, along with Merrimack Valley Distributing in the North Shore. The response in the state has been overwhelming and the brewery is exhilarated to achieve the goal of complete coverage in the full footprint of Massachusetts.

A new expansion of the fermentation cellar will enable the brewery to keep up with the demand in these new territories. As always, the flagship Switchback Ale is being brewed in an original 1964 copper brewhouse from the Brauerei Schmucker, and left unfiltered and 100% naturally carbonated using a proprietary yeast strain.

As of May 1st, 2017, Switchback Ale will be readily available in Boston and Cape Cod through a distribution partnership with Horizon Beverage. In addition, Switchback will expand in western and northern Massachusetts with Girardi Distributors of Pittsfield and Athol. The rollout into the market will begin with the flagship Switchback Ale, available on draught in kegs as well as the unique 12 oz stubby bottles in package stores.
