Destihl Brewery is making good use of its expanded facility in Normal, Illinois, ramping up production and adding another state to its distribution footprint. The new home for Destihl bottles, kegs, and cans is the state of Massachusetts, which will begin receiving shipments the week of December 11, 2017 under a new partnership agreement with Night Shift Distributing.
Destihl opened its new, 47,000 square foot brewing operation in early 2017 and Destihl founder and Brewmaster Matt Potts says the added production capacity is starting to pay off.
“Having this new facility is really opening the door for us to move into new and exciting markets like Massachusetts”, said Potts. “We look forward to this opportunity and see a bright future where Destihl beers are welcomed into the highly developed but exciting and innovative Massachusetts craft beer scene. To make this happen, we’ve teamed up with Night Shift Distributing, a team that, like us, has its roots firmly planted in its passion for brewing.”
Craft beer fans are growing ever more familiar with the Destihl Wild Sour Series, a lineup that includes Here Gose Nothin’, Synchopathic, Flanders Red, and Synchopathic Apricot. These will be among the first beers to show up in stores, taverns, and restaurants in Massachusetts and they will be joined by core lineup beers Vertex IPA, Moonjumper Milk Stout, Weissenheimer Hefeweizen, Amra Mango IPA, Normal Pils, and Deadhead Imperial Red IPA. Fans of Destihl’s other beers will be happy to know that Saint Dekka Reserve Barrel Aged Sour, Zure Dubbele Stout, and Vuile Blonde will also make their way to the Bay State,
Rob Burns, co- founder of Night Shift Distributing, says the Massachusetts market is ripe for an expanded selection of quality sours and other top- notch brews.
“Night Shift Distributing is thrilled to introduce MA beer fans to the unique and innovative portfolio of beers from DESTIHL. Massachusetts has a huge thirst for award winning, perfectly executed canned sour beers as well as clean hoppy beers. MA is thirsty for these beers,” Burns exclaimed.
Destihl’s Director of Sales, Neil Reinhardt, says the partnership with Night Shift is one certain to benefit all parties involved.
“Massachusetts is a great market for craft beer and we are super excited to have DESTIHL beers available to consumers. Our approach to new markets has been to choose the best partner and we couldn’t ask for a better one than Night Shift Distributing. Being a well-respected local brewer gives them a unique perspective along with insights that will be invaluable,” said Reinhardt.
