Adding the Tar Heel state into WeldWerks’ distribution footprint is especially meaningful for WeldWerks Co-Founder and Co-Owner Neil Fisher given his ties to the state.
“Even though it’s been fifteen years since I left North Carolina to make Colorado my home, having grown up in Raleigh, attended school at Chapel Hill, and with so many family and friends across the state, a part of my heart will always belong in Carolina,” says Fisher. “I am incredibly excited that we get to work with the amazing team at Artisan to bring WeldWerks beer to the North Carolina market year round.”
Beginning mid-January, participating retailers in North Carolina will be able to enjoy Juicy Bits, WeldWerks’ iconic flagship Hazy IPA, Evil Haze Factory, a double Hazy IPA brewed with an obscene amount of hops, and Bamm Bamm Rubble Rubble, a fruity rice cereal sour ale, as well as other rotating beers from WeldWerks’ innovative beer portfolio.
“North Carolina beer drinkers have high expectations for craft beer these days. As one of Colorado’s best breweries, our team is excited to begin selling WeldWerks locally. They make amazing liquid and have great branding,” says Taylor McDermott, owner of Artisan Beverage Group. “I’m certain that it will be well received by our customers and the consumer.”
WeldWerks is excited to kick off the new year by adding North Carolina into their growing roster of out-of-state markets. Besides North Carolina, the Greeley-based brewery also had distribution in select markets across the U.S., including increased distribution in California, Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin.
