San Diego, CA (May 23, 2016) — Southern California’s AleSmith Brewing Company is pleased to announce the finalization of a partnership with Whitehouse Station-based Hunterdon Distributing to launch sale of its critically acclaimed beers in New Jersey. By the end of May, AleSmith’s liquid wares will be available throughout The Garden State, a step made possible by the brewery’s recent expansion into a large, state-of-the-art facility capable of producing enough beer to supply territories further removed from its home region.
“Hunterdon is very pleased to announce that we are partnering with AleSmith to bring their award-winning portfolio to New Jersey,” says Robert Hodson, corporate brand manager for The Sheehan Family Companies, Hunterdon’s parent-corporation. “Both of our companies were founded 20 years ago, & share the same passion and commitment to bringing end-consumers world-class beer. Hunterdon has been patiently waiting for AleSmith to build enough capacity to come to The Garden State, and now the wait is over.”
“It’s been a longtime goal of ours to have our beers distributed in New Jersey,” says AleSmith director of national sales James Valles. “The state’s beer-scene is vibrant & ever-growing, and we feel the wide variety of European-inspired ales we’ve built a solid name behind will fit right in and provide a wealth of new options to New Jersey brew enthusiasts.”
Beer-fans can look forward to the arrival of core six-pack offerings such as AleSmith IPA, AleSmith Nut Brown and AleSmith Lil’ Devil Belgian-style Pale Ale. Numerous other year-round, specialty and seasonal beers will also make their way to New Jersey on a regular basis, beginning with spring-summer release AleSmith Double IPA, the quartet of high-gravity beers comprising the 2016 Vintage Series and variations of the world-renowned, coffee-infused AleSmith Speedway Stout.
