PRESS RELEASE / Newburyport, MA — RiverWalk Brewing Co. launched distribution in Maine via a new partnership with Mariner Beverages in Portland, ME. They began shipping cans and draft into Maine on February 12. The initial rollout included three SKUs — IPA, Storm Door Porter and Tricoastal — with immediate plans to increase variety.
Steve Sanderson, owner of RiverWalk Brewing, sees Maine distribution as the next logical next step. “We’re so close to Maine and already have a significant following there. We feel strongly that our worldly view on craft beer will resonate with the Maine beer drinker. Our goal is to bring a lot of rotating variety to the market while maintaining our high standards for quality.”
Tim Wissemann, President and Founder of Mariner Beverages, said his team is ready to roll. “We are excited to bring RiverWalk beers into the state. They are an up and coming local brewery that recently underwent a large expansion allowing them to send cans and kegs to Maine for their fans and all of our customers. This continues our mission of bringing in really good local and regional beers into the market.”
RiverWalk Brewing recently built a new brewery and taproom in Newburyport, nearly tripling their capacity. This will allow them to increase variety, expand their reach and meet demand throughout New England. RiverWalk Brewing currently distributes to Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.
