Jackalope Brewing Company Announces Distribution Throughout East Tennessee
Nashville, Tennessee, 04/04/2019- Jackalope Brewing Company is happy to announce the launch of distribution throughout East Tennessee, including Knoxville and the Tri-Cities.
Jackalope built a new production brewery in Nashville last year, after outgrowing their original location (which they still maintain for small batch brewing). “One of the major goals in building our new facility was to be able to grow our distribution footprint,” said Jackalope Founder & CEO Bailey Spaulding.
“We have always wanted to distribute statewide, but we were so close to our brewing capacity limit that we hadn’t been able to expand geographically for over three years,” echoed Jackalope’s President, Steve Wright, “East Tennessee distribution gets us one major step closer to that.”
Jackalope is partnering with Lipman Brothers as its wholesaler to bring their beers to East Tennessee and will officially launch distribution on April 10th. The brewery will be celebrating during the week with events including bowling and trivia in Knoxville, as well as pouring beer at the Thirsty Orange Beer Festival in Johnson City. For anybody interested in joining the celebration, the brewery will keep folks updated through social media.
