Bell's is heading to southern California in May

Josh Smith | Bell's Brewery

COMSTOCK, MI –Bell’s Brewery, Inc. will begin distributing to southern California in early May, making it our 20th state we distribute to and our first western state since Arizona.

Craft Beer Guild Distributing of California will distribute Bell’s full portfolio to San Diego and Imperial counties.

“These two counties will help us establish ourselves while making sure the needs of our existing customers are met,” said Laura Bell, Bell’s Vice President.

“We’re really excited to join an already outstanding craft beer community,” she said.

Bell’s began distributing to New York City in February after expanding to western and upstate New York last fall. New York was Bell’s first new territory in almost five years.

For help locating our beer, our fans will be able to use our Beer Finder feature in May to see which nearby bars, restaurants and retailers serve and sell Bell’s beer.

Release party information will also be available as that information becomes available.
