Building upon their success in San Francisco and greater northern California, Fort Point Beer Company, the Bay Area’s celebrated hometown brewery, is excited to continue its expansion project across Southern California. Renowned for its balanced and nuanced approach to brewing and distinctive design, Fort Point will bring their beloved beers to San Diego for the first time and grow its presence across Los Angeles by partnering with Scout Distribution and Beauchamp Distributing Co.
“We handpicked Scout and Beauchamp because they are craft beer distributors that align with Fort Point’s values of making good beer accessible to everyone,” said Justin Catalana, co-founder and CEO of Fort Point Beer Company. “These distributors, like Fort Point, are keen on building brands and hand-selling beer. We feel confident that our new partners will take care of Fort Point and collaborate with the best of the best restaurants and retailers in Los Angeles and San Diego.”
In recent years, Southern California has become esteemed as a mecca for craft breweries. By joining forces with Scout Distributors, Fort Point will introduce its beers to a brand new audience in San Diego. Fort Point has been self-distributing in areas of Los Angeles for two years. Now, the brand’s partnership with Beauchamp will make Fort Point accessible to even more customers across central and west Los Angeles, Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Hollywood and West Hollywood. Customers across Southern California will be able to enjoy Fort Point’s core beers – KSA, Villager, Westfalia, Animal and the single-hop series, Park – as well as its seasonal can releases.
Catalana added, “We’ve looked for distributors that want to build a brand together. Scout and Beauchamp consistently seek truly only the most leading restaurants and retailers and are committed to finding those that are interested in working with Fort Point long-term versus providing a limited time offering. By partnering with the best of the best, we’ve been able to curate a unique lineup of places to find Fort Point in Southern California.”
