We’re Expanding Distribution to Columbia, Chattanooga, and Greenville
We are thrilled to announce plans to expand distribution to three Southeastern cities – starting with Columbia, South Carolina in mid-September, Chattanooga, Tennessee shortly thereafter, and Greenville, South Carolina in mid-October! Similar to our expansion into the Charleston and Hilton Head markets last year, and in Nashville earlier this summer, four beers from our core year-round lineup will be available on draft in select locations in Columbia, Chattanooga, and Greenville, including 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’ve enjoyed bringing Creature Comforts to new places over the last year and are excited to continue doing so with three more Southern cities that share our affinity for creativity and community,” said Creature Comforts CEO Chris Herron. “In bringing our products to Columbia, Chattanooga, and Greenville, we hope to further our purpose of fostering human connection and share our piece of the craft beer world with new audiences.”
With less than five hours of driving distance between the three cities, we hope to cultivate relationships with each city and their distinct food and beverage offerings, architecture, and music scenes – all elements true to the core of who Creature Comforts is as a brand and where we started in Athens. To do so, we’ll be hosting launch events in Columbia, Chattanooga, and Greenville during the expansions. More details will be announced soon so stay tuned!
For distributor partners, we selected Beverage South for Columbia, Lipman Brothers for Chattanooga, and Greenco Distributing (a subsidiary of Reyes Beer Division) for Greenville. All share a commitment to quality and community impact, and each distributor has made for a natural partner for the brand’s entrance into these new markets.
The market expansion comes just after celebrating our eighth anniversary, and ahead of our plans to open a second brewery and taproom in Los Angeles in the coming months. To learn more, follow along on Instagram at @CreatureComfortsBeer.
