Our Beer is Heading to Nashville this Summer!
We’re thrilled to announce our plans to expand distribution to the Nashville, Tennessee market this summer. Following our recent expansion into South Carolina’s Charleston and Hilton Head markets last year, the addition of Nashville is our brewery’s second expansion over state lines. We will begin pouring four of our year-round brews throughout Nashville starting in early July.
“As a part of our strategy of being a great and growing company, we put a lot of careful consideration into our expansion plans,” said CEO Chris Herron. “Nashville has a quickly developing craft beer market, an incredibly vibrant music and culinary scene, and a lot of population cross-pollination with our home state of Georgia, making it a natural evolution of our limited distribution footprint. Nashville will be only our second out-of-state market in over 8 years, and we will continue to be very thoughtful, intentional, and strategic as we select markets to further our purpose of fostering human connection.”
Four beers from Creature Comforts’ core year-round lineup will be available on draft in Nashville locations: Athena, a tart German-style wheat beer; Automatic, a bright and refreshing Pale Ale; Bibo, a crisp and dry Pilsner; and Tropicália, a balanced and juicy IPA.
We’re thrilled to share we selected Lipman Brothers as our distributor partner in Nashville. Established in 1939, Lipman Brothers was the first distributor of wine and spirits in Tennessee. Sharing a commitment to quality, Lipman made for a natural partner for our entrance into the Nashville market.
“Not only does Creature Comforts make great beer, but have a broader view of the business beyond brewing beer,” said Business Unit Director – Beer, Ian Wolczyk. “Their status as B Corp, priority on philanthropy, and involvement with the culinary culture make a great partnership with Lipman Brothers. It goes much deeper than just transactional. We are more than excited to share in their future.”
The market expansion comes just after our eighth anniversary, and ahead of our plans to open a second brewery and taproom in Los Angeles later this year. Nashville launch events are slated to take place the week of July 11, and details will be shared on our social media channels. Be sure to follow along on Instagram at @CreatureComfortsBeer!
