Telluride Brewing Co Expands Distribution to Arizona

For the first time ever, Telluride Brewing’s Award-Winning Beers are Available Outside of Colorado.

TELLURIDE, CO (September 13, 2022) - After 11 years serving up award-winning beers

across Colorado, Telluride Brewing Co is proud to announce the expansion of its

distribution to neighboring Arizona. Telluride Brewing Co beers can now be found at more than 200 locations across Arizona, including restaurants, bars, liquor, and grocery stores through Scout Distribution out of Phoenix, Arizona.

Telluride Brewing Co’s famed Face Down Brown, along with Tempter IPA, See Forever

Hazy Pale, Alpengose, Mountain Beer Kolsch, and Galloping Juice Grapefruit IPA are all

currently available in cans and kegs throughout the state, offering Arizona visitors and

residents a true taste of the growing brewery’s delicious lineup.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to distribute our beers in the great state of Arizona,” explains Tommy Thacher, President and Co-Founder of Telluride Brewing Co. “Our complementary seasons, large population of Arizona visitors in Telluride, and close proximity made our decision to work with Scout and expand our distribution, an easy one.”

Telluride Brewing Co is the first Colorado brewery to work with the young Arizona

distributor. Both independently owned and operated, Scout Distribution and Telluride

Brewing Co’s partnership began in May of 2022, and has already resulted in the sales of

200 barrels in their short four month soft launch in the Grand Canyon state.

“Once deciding on Arizona as an ideal market for expansion, we tapped into our

community of Independent Brewers and industry friends in Arizona, all of which had

fantastic things to say about Scout,” recounts Thacher. “Their small size combined with our like-minded approach to business made for a natural fit, which has already proved fruitful for both of us.”

Telluride Brewing Co started as a small resort-town brewery with local distribution, but after successful growth in Colorado and the brewery’s increased capacity, their beers will now be available in Arizona year-round. Distribution to both Utah and Michigan is also on the horizon for the Telluride based brewery, allowing them to offset resort shoulder seasons while sharing their expertly crafted beer with new locations and consumers. Those outside of Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and Michigan can order Telluride Brewing Co beers at - available

for shipment to select states only.
