We really enjoyed having Mike Hiller from Bavarian Barbarian on the Friday BeerBuzz a few months ago and we were honored that he chose to announce his new co-brew with Terry Hawbaker on our show. Mike is now announcing Gothika in a press release AND announcing his moves in into the Philly market. Exciting news Mike!
BARBARIAN INVASION OF PHILADELPHIA UNDERWAY Williamsport Brewery Begins Distribution in the Big City WILLIAMSPORT, PA – Building on successful distribution in the counties surrounding Philadelphia, Bavarian Barbarian Brewing Company recently began distribution in the city itself. Contracting with Philadelphia’s own wholesale powerhouse, Bella Vista Beer Distributors, the Barbarian’s 2x4 India Pale Ale and Hammerin’ Ale have already hit the city market and will soon be followed by Headbangerz Brown Ale and Steel Drivin’ Stout. After tremendous success working with Gretz Beer Company in Bucks, Berks, Montgomery and Delaware Counties, the Bavarian Barbarian’s founder and brewer, Mike Hiller, decided that the next logical step was to invade the Philadelphia market. After several weeks of researching wholesalers and the craft beer market in Philadelphia, Mike found that Bella Vista would make the best wholesale partner for the Barbarian. In fact, Bella Vista sold out of the first shipment of Barbarian beers within days of its delivery. A big part of the decision to begin pushing into the city came from the very positive response of Philadelphians at various beer festivals, including the Philly Beer Week Opening Tap event.
