As the category trends, non-alcoholic beer producer Partake Brewing has announced a second distribution expansion to further its U.S. footprint.
This low-calorie, low-carbohydrate non-alcoholic craft beer first launched in the U.S. in December 2020. Partake Brewing is now available in Southern California, Colorado, Connecticut, Eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Nevada, Texas, Virginia, Washington D.C. and nationally online.
Partake’s expansion is supported by its distribution partners, including Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits, Classic Beverage Company, Breakthru Beverage Group, Imperial Beverage, Penn Beer, Resort Beverage, Ambiente Beverage, Dynamo Distributing and the portfolio under Sheehan Family Companies – Craft Connecticut, Craft New Hampshire, Hunterdon Brewing Company and Legends Distributing.
“This is a thrilling time for Partake Brewing, and we are proud to work with both our retail and distribution partners to redefine the non-alcoholic category, and continue to deliver on our market position as a leading North American non-alcoholic craft beer,” says Ted Fleming, Partake Brewing founder and CEO. “After an accelerated year of sales growth, the addition of these important U.S. markets provides us with an opportunity to meet the consumer’s growing interest and demand for non-alcoholic offerings while providing an unparalleled drinking experience.”
Partake is available in more than 5,000 retail locations.
“Partake Brewing is a trusted partner and we are excited to offer their range of great-tasting, low-calorie craft beer to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers,” says Nick Funchion, president and COO of Penn Beer. “We’re seeing many consumers opting to make healthier choices and seeking a non-alcoholic beer option to complement their current alcohol consumption habits.”
Last December, Partake announced its first foray into the U.S. market with distribution in Arizona, Maine, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington.
Partake was founded by Fleming after a diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease led him to give up alcohol, the company says.
Partake currently offers Pale, IPA, Blonde, Red, Dark and limited seasonal editions.
Today’s announcement also comes on the heels of the brand’s recent $4 million Series A funding round led by CircleUp Growth Partners.
