From Evolution Craft Brewing & Eastern Shore:
(June 17, 2016) Eastern Shore Distributing announced it had purchased distribution rights for Evolution Craft Brewing in its home market of Wicomico, Worcester and Somerset counties.
Retail stores and restaurants in the area can now stock up on Evolution’s mainline beers, Primal Pale Ale, Lot #3 IPA, Lot #6 Double IPA, Exile Red Ale, Lucky 7 Porter, Rise Up Coffee Stout and Pine’hop’le IPA, as well as and many of its seasonal releases and age-able ales through Eastern Shore Distributing.
"For us, Evolution’s quality portfolio is a huge addition for ESD's growth strategy here on the Eastern Shore," Rob Burke, president of Eastern Shore Distributing, said. "Together, we will continue to build the entire portfolio to lead the craft beer industry. We understand the importance of showcasing & ensuring strong distribution and sampling opportunities for the quality EVO products brewed right here in a most-appreciative home market."
“The goal for Evolution has always been to create great beers for Maryland & the Mid-Atlantic region,” Evolution founder Tom Knorr said. “Evolution prides itself on representing Salisbury and the Eastern Shore as one of these independent craft beer producers. Partnering with Eastern Shore Distributing will only help to strengthen our presence in our local market along with our other local Shore distributors.”
ESD will also help spearhead the distribution efforts of Evolution’s latest line, Delmarva Pure Pils, scheduled for wide release across Delmarva on July 1. DelMarVa Pure Pils is a highly sessionable Eastern Shore take on the traditional Czech-style pilsner, and is design to pair with well with steamed crabs, grilled seafood, fried chicken and other backyard barbecue staples.
