Classic Distributing and Beverage Group is a prominent Los Angeles County beer distributor with a leading portfolio and a dedication to focus on growth through solid execution of its brands.
Formed in 1978 as a brewery-owned operation, Classic Distributing and Beverage Group has become a profitable and recognizable force within the industry. The distributor will add the new Tap It Brewing American Standard Ale to its portfolio which was awarded a first place Gold medal in the Session Pale category at the 2012 Los Angeles International Beer Competition at the LA County Fair. The brewery's signature IPA earned a Bronze Award in the competition's American-Style India Pale Ale category.
Director of Sales at Tap It Brewing, Robert Garcia, stated, "We are thrilled to be on board with Classic. Our growth has been strong since we opened our brewery doors almost two years ago, but the addition of the Classic team is truly a milestone for us as we reach beyond our own backyard along the California Central Coast." The brewery also began distribution in Arizona earlier this year.
"We are excited to launch Tap It in the Los Angeles market. We think their brands are a great compliment to our existing world class portfolio. Tap It is going to compete in the exploding segment of our business that is Craft. I really feel Tap It’s portfolio will offer tremendous points of difference through the flavor of their liquid as well as their unique styles such as their American Pale Ale," commented CJ Sanchez, Vice President of Sales for Classic Distributing & Beverage Group.
Tap It Brewing Co. currently produces an India Pale Ale, an American Pale Ale, an American Sessions Ale and a number of small batch craft brews at its 10,000 square foot production microbrewery just south of the San Luis Obispo (CA) eclectic downtown area. Prior to this announcement the San Luis Obispo brewery, which has been in operation since 2010, has become a staple of the San Luis lifestyle and now the brewery is spreading the cheer to more West Coast beer enthusiasts. This new relationship with Classic Distributing and Beverage Group will prove to dramatically increase availability.
Tap It Brewing Co., LLC represents San Luis Obispo County's seventh microbrewery. Visit tapitbrewing.com for more information on their beers and racing programs.
