Deschutes Brewery Adds MissouriBeginning January 9th 2012, the tasty brews from Deschtues Brewery will be available in St. Louis, Kansas City and Columbia, Missouri.  The fine folks of Missouri know their beer and have been clamoring for Deschutes for years.

“For years, our fans have been pleading with us to bring our beers farther east, and Missouri was the ideal step in that direction,” said Gary Fish, president and founder of Deschutes Brewery. “Our recent collaboration brew with Boulevard Brewing Company in Kansas City gave us tangible knowledge of just how passionate Missourians are about their craft beer. We’re looking forward to formally introducing our beers to the market there and getting to know the beer enthusiasts in this region even better.”

Their patience has paid off and they will soon be able to get select Deschutes products in bars, restaurants and grocery stores throughout the state.  Deschutes will initially partner with nine distributors to provide beer to the Kansas City, Columbia and St. Louis markets and then expand distribution to the rest of the state through 15 additional distributors in March 2012.

Deschutes will also be bringing in a limited amount of The Stoic, Black Butte XXIII and The Abyss for Missouri’s serious beer fanatics, as well as, 22-ounce bottles of Hop Henge Experimental IPA. Six-packs of Mirror Pond, Black Butte Porter, Inversion IPA and Red Chair NWPA will be available later down the road
