Andrews Distributing Announces Partnership WIth Celis Brewery

From Andrews:

June 23, 2017, DALLAS, TEXAS – Andrews Distributing Company is proud to announce a partnership
with Celis Brewery of Austin, Texas.
Celis Brewery is owned and operated by Christine Celis. She follows in the footsteps of her father,
renowned Belgian brewer Pierre Celis, who founded the original brewery in 1992. Pierre began his
brewing career in Belgium in the 1960s. Christine is restoring the family legacy with a new 22,000-
square-foot brewery in northwest Austin, where the team will brew Pierre’s famous Belgian-style
recipes, including award-winning witbier, Celis White.
Christine Celis, founder and CEO of Celis Brewery, said she is excited to watch the re-introduction of Celis’ beers in North Texas.
“Our beers from Celis Brewery were really popular in North Texas when we were first brewing in the
1990s. It is incredibly exciting to be back brewing Celis Brewery’s original recipes like the famous Celis White and Celis Grand Cru using the proprietary yeast from Belgium,” Christine said. “We are
overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and enthusiasm we have received as we have started
reintroducing our Celis beers this month. We are thrilled to be working with Andrews Distributing to
make sure people in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex can find Celis beers at their favorite locations.”
Kelli Hopson, Andrews craft brand manager, said the Andrews team looks forward to being a part of
Celis’ growth and success in Texas.
“The Celis name is famous in the beer community and is synonymous with Belgian-style beer,” Hopson
said. “All of us at Andrews are thrilled to work with this award-winning team with such world-class
beers. We look forward to helping them expand their presence in their home state of Texas and
connecting them with beer lovers in Dallas-Fort Worth.”
Andrews plans to launch Celis in DFW the week of July 3, with official launch events the following week.
The July launch will include Celis White draft. Future plans to expand include the launch of Pale Bock and Citrus Grandis IPA draft in August, followed by Celis White, Pale Bock and Citrus Grandis IPA bottles in  September.
