Switchback Brewing Company, Vermont’s first 100% employee-owned brewery, is proud to announce that they are expanding distribution by entering the state of Connecticut in partnerships with Star Distributors and A. Gallo & Company. This expansion now makes Switchback beer available in every New England state.
As of May 8th, 2017, Switchback Brewing Company’s flagship brew, Switchback Ale, will be available throughout the western part of Connecticut, in Litchfield, New Haven and Fairfield counties. The rollout into the state will begin with Switchback Ale, available on draught in kegs, and soon after it can be found in its unique 12oz stubby bottles at package stores.
Additions to the fermentation cellar enable the brewery to keep up with the demand in New England and upstate New York. Switchback Ale is brewed using an original 1964 copper brewhouse from the Brauerei Schmucker in Germany. Like all Switchback beers, Switchback Ale is left unfiltered and 100% naturally carbonated.
Many people in Connecticut have been insisting for years that Switchback be distributed in the state. The brewery is delighted to achieve the goal of becoming readily available in all New England states.
