Sad day for some beer drinkers

Dogfish Head and Flying Dog Breweries have announced that they will end distribution in some selected areas.

This from DFH:

Distributors in Tennessee, Indiana, Wisconsin and Rhode Island have been notified they’ll be getting no more Dogfish Head craft beers. Dogfish Head just can’t keep up with production to continue distribution everywhere it was previously available.

So it is bittersweet for us to announce that we are pulling out of, or limiting some of our core beers from, a number of states. Yes this sucks. The glass-half-full view is that we (and a handful of other U.S. craft breweries making similar moves) have to do this because your numbers the number of U.S. drinkers buying and enjoying craft beer – are growing so quickly!

This from Flying Dog:

Flying Dog Brewery General Partner and CEO, Jim Caruso, confirmed today that the company is halting distribution in five states: Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Arkansas and Louisiana. Caruso said that they will re-consider those markets this coming fall.
