Boulevard to Distribute in Michigan and Kentucky

Boulevard Brewing Co. announced today that it has opened up distribution channels in Michigan and Kentucky. This comes on the heels of expansions to Alabama, Rhode Island and New York earlier this year.

Boulevard is the 12th-largest brewery in the U.S. as part of Duvel Moortgat USA, and produces highly popular beers such as Unfiltered Wheat, Long Strange Tripel and Heavy Lifting IPA.

Here is the release from Boulevard:

March 8, 2016 – Kansas City – When Boulevard added new markets to their distribution territory in 2015, the Kansas City brewer suggested more were soon to come. Today the company fulfilled that promise, announcing the appointments of Imperial Beverage in Michigan and Beer House Distributors in Kentucky. In the coming weeks, consumers in those states will be able to enjoy Boulevard favorites such as Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale, The Calling IPA, Ginger Lemon Radler and Heavy Lifting IPA.

These moves follow on the heels of recent launches in Rhode Island with Horizon Beer Distributors, and in upstate New York with AL GeorgeCerto BrothersDeCrescenteHigh Peaks DistributingLake Beverage, Norwich Beverage Corp., Oswego Beverage Co.Plattsburgh DistributingT.J.
