Just two weeks after pioneering Colorado brewery Boulder Beer Co. announced it would soon be shipping its last bottled products and selling beer only out of the brewery tap room, the brewery has struck an agreement with a nearby brewer to contract Boulder beer in package.
Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. has agreed to produce and distribute Boulder beer products around the country. The deal was reached in time to ensure there will be no break in shipments to distributors.
“When Sleeping Giant reached out to us to talk about taking over the retail side of the businesses, we wanted to make sure there wasn’t a lag in distribution so we could keep those shelf spaces and not have to go out and rebuild that,” said Tess McFadden, Boulder Beer marketing director said in an article in the Denver Post.
Boulder Beer was founded it in 1979, one of the very first craft breweries in the country.
