SAN DIEGO - Nov. 22, 2016 -- Coronado Brewing Company is proudly expanding its distribution into the Lone Star State. The brewery has signed an agreement with Brown Distributing Company, to supply Coronado's award-winning lineup of beers throughout the Austin market. The initial launch kicks off late November and will feature the company's core offerings on draft, including fan-favorites Orange Ave. Wit, Mermaid's Red, Islander IPA, and newcomer Stingray IPA.
This partnership marks Coronado's first steps into the Texas market. "We've seen the Texas craft beer scene grow exponentially over the past few years and we're excited to share our beer with a savvy, new audience. San Diego and Austin share a lot of similarities when it comes to appreciating the best life has to offer—and doing it your own way—and we think our brand will resonate with Texans," says Bandon Richards, COO, Coronado Brewing.
After the initial draft-only rollout, Coronado will expand its Austin presence with 12oz can six packs, as well as specialty 22oz bottles. "Brown Distributing has deeps roots in the Austin beer market and we know they will be an excellent steward of our brand as we launch in this highly competitive landscape," says Richards.
This marks the nineteenth state for Coronado's growing distribution footprint. Despite growing at a double-digit pace for twenty years, the company takes a measured and steady approach to its distribution in new markets. "We don't need to be everywhere," says Richards. "We want to be strategic about our growth, and who we partner with. We're optimistic about the demand for our beer in the Austin market, and we're excited to have Brown Distributing debut our brand in Texas."
