Del Papa Distributing Co. recently added Houston-based Karbach Brewing Co.'s full craft beer lineup to its Southeast Texas distribution territory.
Effective immediately, craft beer enthusiasts in Del Papa's Texas City, Beaumont and Victoria distribution areas can find their favorite Karbach selections in area bars and grocery, liquor and convenience stores, according to a Del Papa news release.
"We have been interested in Karbach from the very beginning. With the skills of brewmaster Eric Warner, we knew that quality craft brands and great success were in Karbach's future," Rodney Norrell, Del Papa's brand development manager, said in the release. "To us, representing the Karbach brand family in our 17-county market was an easy decision."
"It is quite an honor for us to develop our partnership with Del Papa, who has such a legacy in the coastal region of Texas," Ken Goodman, Karbach's founder, said in the release.
Karbach's core lineup, Sympathy for the Lager, Weisse Versa Wheat, Hopadillo IPA and Rodeo Clown Double IPA, plus its summer brew, Love Street Summer Seasonal, are among the full lineup available in cans and on tap. Roshambo and El Hopadillo Negro will also be available in 22 oz. bottles and on draught.
Del Papa will also distribute the brewery's seasonal lineup, limited releases and F.U.N. series.
