JDub’s Brewing Company (Sarasota, Florida) recently hit craft beer fans with two exciting pieces of brewery news:
- Beers from JDub’s Brewing Company will soon be available in Georgia.
- The brewery’s Bell Cow Milk Chocolate Porter will now be available on draft exclusively as a Nitro offering.
As far as that first nugget of brew news goes, the folks at JDub’s Brewing are pleased to announce that they are currently interviewing distributors so that they can soon expand distribution into the state of Georgia. Thanks to recent data showing that JDub’s Brewing Company is currently “the #1 selling Florida craft brewery amongst all beers sold in Florida liquor stores” (source: IRI sales data), the brewery now has the confidence to undertake this expansion and introduce Georgia craft beer fans to their offerings. The brewery currently has a “solid relationship” with Kroger, and this will be a focus of the distribution expansion into Georgia.
“Kroger is a giant account, for any brewer in America. We’ve been eager to get our beers in the Kroger stores for a long time and are thrilled to roll up our sleeves and being working with them. They truly ‘get’ craft beer.” Jeremy “JDub” Joerger
In other news that is sure to delight all fans of Bell Cow Milk Chocolate Porter from JDub’s Brewing, the brewery has “decided to discontinue production of the CO2 version in draft form and from this point forward, will only produce Nitro Bell Cow on draft.” This move comes after the public has created a high demand for the richer, creamier experience found in the nitrogenated version of Bell Cow, and the decision makers at the brewery feel that this is the right direction to take moving forward. With that said, the canned version of Bell Cow Milk Chocolate Porter will remain in CO2 form “for the foreseeable future.”
This is fantastic news for JDub’s Brewing Company and the brewery’s growth moving forward. Beer lovers in Georgia can expect to see offerings from the brewery in the very near future, and JDub’s fans throughout the brewery’s distribution footprint can enjoy Bell Cow’s full transition to Nitro draft effective immediately. Prost!
