Atlas Sales is excited to announce a new distributor partnership with craft brewing pioneer Summit Brewing Company of St. Paul, Minnesota. The first shipment of Summit beers recently arrived at Atlas, and the team is geared up and ready to distribute the beers to a bar or store near you.
“Minnesota has a rich tradition of quality craft beers,” said Tom Harty, Atlas’s Sales Manager. “We are excited to be adding our second supplier from Minnesota to our portfolio.”
Summit’s brews are traditional in style with an emphasis on quality. According to founder and brewmaster Mark Stutrud, “From the beginning, Summit beer has been brewed with a healthy measure of respect for old-world brewing traditions and ingredients. We take a holistic approach in our quest to make a consistently high quality, well-balanced beer.”
Popular beers include Summit Extra Pale Ale, Summit India Pale Ale, and Summit Horizon Red Ale. Obviously, Summit steers clear of funky names and marketing hype to aim for traditional beers made very well.
For the launch, Atlas will sell 6-pack bottles of Summit Extra Pale Ale and Summit India Pale Ale and kegs of Summit Extra Pale Ale. The team looks forward to sharing this great Midwestern brand with beer lovers in Calhoun County.
