Braven Brewing Company Signs Distribution Agreement with S.K.I. Beer
Brooklyn, New York – October 1, 2014 - Braven Brewing Company, a new craft microbrewery based in Bushwick, Brooklyn, today announced the signing of a distribution agreement with S.K.I. Beer, one of New York’s leading beverage wholesalers.
“We love S.K.I.’s focus on craft beer and the attention they give to small, start-up breweries like ourselves,” says Braven Co-Founder Marshall S. Thompson. “They have an amazing team of salespeople that understand the needs of a local brewery and how to sell our beer throughout the region. We believe that S.K.I is the perfect partner to help our small brand get off the ground.”
“Local beer brands like Braven complement our craft beer portfolio, which include breweries from across the country” says S.K.I. Co-Founder Ralph Mauriello. “We think they are ideally suited to succeed in this market and we are excited to have them join the S.K.I. family of brands.”
Under the agreement, S.K.I. will have exclusive rights to distribute Braven’s beers to Manhattan, Queens, Kings, Bronx, Richmond, Westchester, Putnam, Duchess, Rockland, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties from its 60,000 square foot facility on Gardner Avenue in Brooklyn.
