Deschutes Brewery picks distributor for Southwest, Central Virginia
Bend, Ore.-based Deschutes Brewery has tapped Salem-based Blue Ridge Beverage as its distributor in Southwest and Central Virginia, the companies announced Thursday.
Earlier this year, Deschutes announced that Roanoke would be the site for its future East Coast brewery. It will begin serving 49 counties and 17 cities in Southwest and Central Virginia in early August.
Blue Ridge will launch Deschutes’ beers later this summer, including Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Black Butte Porter, Fresh Squeezed IPA and the brewery’s variety packs.
Deschutes ships beer to 28 states, the District of Columbia, and abroad.
Blue Ridge distributes beer, wine, cider and non-alcoholic beverages to more than 4,000 retail customers throughout Southwest and Central Virginia.
