Innovative Programs for Craft Brewers
Brew Pipeline, led by a group of industry veterans, is focused in on creating a series of programs designed to help craft brewers build their distribution and brand strategies. Our flagship program, Guest Brewer, works to enhance craft brewers’ portfolios by unlocking brand potential, and connecting distributors to diverse, market-approved brands.
We have high expectations in 2019 as we launch Guest Brewer. We’re working with the best partners in the industry to make award-winning craft beer more accessible to consumers, simplify distribution for breweries, and increase sales for distributors and retailers, alike. In the pipeline, we’ll expand our capabilities to packaging, contract brewing, and work within international markets.
Brew Pipeline Programs
Our flagship program, Guest Brewer brings award-winning and highly rated craft beers to new markets for limited-time sales. Guest Brewer gives breweries the opportunity to test new markets and to reach even more fans across the country.
Brew Pipeline’s giving arm, Cause, is a turnkey program designed to accelerate fundraising for brands that have a charitable connection as well as 501(c)(3) nonprofits hoping to spread the word. Brew Pipeline donates predetermined dollars per case and asks that distributors participating in this program do the same. Retailers will have the option to contribute as well to maximize funds raised around worthy causes.
Designed to provide new market access to highly-rated barrel-aged beers, sours, and small-batch offerings, Brew Pipeline’s distributor partners can choose from available inventory on a first-come, first-served basis. Shipments are available in limited allocation on-demand, for varying durations of time.
Collab aims to increase market access to the best collaboration beers. With temporary distribution agreements, Collab helps high profile brewers reach even more fans across the nation, beyond the hometowns of the participating breweries. When collaboration beers have charitable causes, there’s potential for overlap in the Cause program as well.
Destination’s goal is to fill niche demand for hyper-targeted accounts, and to simplify the task of bringing beer to markets previously not accessible to brewers with a one-stop solution. Popular Destination locations include chain accounts, concert venues, sports arenas, festivals and more.
