Wiseacre Brewing Company announced its plans to launch statewide distribution in Missouri and Indiana in March 2022. Five of the Memphis-based brewery’s year-round beers – Ananda IPA, Bow Echo Hazy IPA, Gotta Get Up to Get Down Coffee Milk Stout, Puffel Hazy Double IPA and the Tiny Bomb Pilsner – will be available in both states along with Seasonal and Specialty Releases. Thanks to its state-of-the-art production facility, opened in March of 2020, WISEACRE is able to offer a full array of packages with 12oz, 16oz, and 19.2oz cans coming in 6-packs, 4-packs, 12-packs, Variety Packs, and single-serve to create options for consumers in the fast changing landscape of craft beer.
Wiseacre is currently sold in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Washington, D.C.
“My brother Davin and I also have a very personal connection to St. Louis, in particular, because that’s where our father is from,” says Kellan Bartosch, Wiseacre co-founder. “We grew up going to St. Louis for Blues hockey games in the winter and Cardinals games in the summer. Hitting up Ted Drewes Frozen Custard and places on the hill like Rigazzi’s for toasted raviolis was an important part of our childhood. It’s thrilling to think that you could have authentic t-ravs and a fresh-from-the-tap Wiseacre beer at the same time!”
“When I was living in Chicago brewing beer for Rock Bottom, there was a ton of connectivity with Indiana breweries which led to great relationships and travel to visit friends’ breweries,” adds Davin. “The state is full of world-class breweries that have created an amazing beer culture alongside bars, restaurants, and smart consumers. It is an honor for us to begin distribution there this month.”
