Anderson Valley Brewing Company (Boonville, California) has officially announced that they have partnered with International Wines & Craft Beer to bring their offerings back to the state of Alabama beginning this month.
When the brewery was founded on December 26th, 1987 in the town of Boonville, California, Anderson Valley Brewing Company was just “one of only 20 craft breweries in the country.” Thanks to a commitment to experimentation and innovation, their hand-crafted, authentic ales and lagers have helped the brewery grow from a “modest” 10-barrel brewhouse to what is now a “26-acre property [that] houses a 100-barrel brewhouse, tasting room, beer garden, and is home to the first 18-hole disc golf course ever to be built at a brewery.” Now considered to be one of the pioneers of the American craft beer industry, Anderson Valley Brewing Co. is known for a solid, time-tested portfolio of Year-Round brews, an incredibly popular line of Goses, and an exclusive partnership with Wild Turkey® Bourbon that yields their Barl Series of bourbon barrel-aged beers. To the delight of the Alabama beer community, the brewery has now decided that its next step moving forward is a much-anticipated return to the Heart of Dixie.
“As the craft beer movement continues to grow, we’ve been keeping our eye open for opportunities to expand into regions with strong, craft-oriented wholesalers. Partnering with International just made sense; their knowledge of craft is exemplary and their dedication to building brands is impressive. We’re optimistic about what the future holds for us in Alabama.”
– Trey White, President and Owner of Anderson Valley Brewing Company
