Lonerider Brewing Company (Raleigh, North Carolina) has officially announced that their offerings will be available for purchase in the Alabama market beginning on Wednesday, February 22.
Established at the start of 2009, Lonerider Brewing Company is a Wild West-themed craft beer brand “that prides itself as the Ales for Outlaws.” Thanks to a dedication to crafting beers with only the highest quality ingredients, Lonerider has earned such accolades as being named an Inc. 5000 winner, a CED Top 25 winner, and one of the Top 150 breweries in the USA. Their beers have also earned several awards, “including medals from the Great American Beer Festival.” This success has made it possible for the brewery to steadily expand their presence across the Southeast, and Alabama will now become the 8th state in their distribution area.
“Going to school in Birmingham and then bringing Lonerider beers back to Alabama is kind of making a full circle for me personally.” Sumit Vohra, CEO, explains. “I’m very excited to bring the Outlaws to Alabama.”
Lonerider Brewing Company will officially launch in Alabama on February 22 with availability “in major cities such as Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, Huntsville, and surrounding areas.” The brewery plans to enter the market with the following offerings:
