Reuben’s Brews announces new distribution partnership and expansion into new territory.
What started out nine years ago as a modest little brewery in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood has grown into one of the city’s most popular beer destinations and one of the Pacific Northwest’s most-recognized beer brands. Reuben’s Brews just announced the further expansion of its distribution footprint, adding Boise and Southern Idaho to its map.
The Seattle brewery expanded its distribution beyond Western Washington in 2017, when it began sending beer to Spokane and Eastern Washington, as well as the Portland area. In 2019, it expanded again by adding Central and Western, Oregon, including important markets like Bend and Eugene. Now, add Boise and Southern Idaho to that list.
“We’re proud to announce that beginning this week Reuben’s Brews beers are now available across Southern Idaho,” the company said on Instagram. “We’ve partnered with our friends at Craig Stein Beverage to bring a breadth of our beers into the market both on tap and in [bottles and cans].”
Beer lovers in Idaho should look forward to quaffable favorites like Crikey IPA and Reuben’s Pilsner, as well as the uber-popular Crush series of hazy IPA. If they’re really lucky, Boise Area beer enthusiasts will get access to some of the brewery’s impressive barrel-aged beers.
To celebrate the news and connect with the beer community, this week Reuben’s Brews sent a crew of representatives to the Boise area, including its Co-Founder Adam Robbings. You’ll find them, and the beers, at the following tap-takeover events.
