Rightly so, the conversation of independent beer vs. big beer has dominated industry news of late – especially here in North Carolina. Whether it’s the beer we drink or the products we represent, our personal preference is to seek out independent brands.
Atlantic Craft Beer and Specialty Wine Distributors was created specifically for independent brewers. Those that are looking for distribution without having to compete for attention in an overloaded, unwieldy portfolio or with a ‘big’ brand in their chosen wholesaler’s book. We’re a small, one truck distributorship; this means that as the owner & operator, breweries work directly with me. No go-betweens or inconvenient chains of command.
With all the talk about craft vs. big beer and distribution laws, little has been discussed in how wholesalers could evolve to offer a more balanced partnership in the market place. As an independent distributor, our goal is to “rethink distribution”.
For us, that centers around a few key points.
Atlantic Craft Beer and Specialty Wine Distributors is an independent wholesaler partnering with independent regional craft breweries, to bring fresh quality beer to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We are rethinking distribution and are ready to connect with the right Suppliers to build their brands. If you are a North Carolina brewery interested in distributing in northeastern NC we’d love to talk to you, maybe have a beer.
