Belching Beaver Brewery Expands Distribution To Texas

The San Diego-based craft brewery will roll out distribution with Ambiente

San Diego, Calif. (October, 2020) – Belching Beaver Brewery’s award-winning core line-up of beers including Phantom Bride IPA, Peanut Butter Milk Stout and Here Comes Mango IPA, as well as some special releases, will be available throughout the state of Texas by the end of the year. Arriving on draft and in package you can find their brews in chain accounts, liquor stores, and places where craft beer is sold.

“We are very excited to announce our launch into the great state of Texas,” said Tom Vogel CEO at Belching Beaver Brewery. “This is something we have wanted to do for a very long time, but we couldn’t find the right distributor partner, and we’re thrilled to partner with Ambiente.” “Texans certainly know their beer and it will be on us to keep them immersed in the best styles we can make.” “I hope to be able to drink a few of our pints right along with the local craft on 6th street, especially with our buddies at Pinthouse Brewing.”

Known for its flavorful, cutting-edge beers, Belching Beaver is also offering a new line of hard seltzers. Made with 100% real fruit with 110 calories, 2g Carbs, these will also be available throughout Texas.

“We continue to search for great partners and Belching Beaver was a natural fit,” said Michael Salas, Vice President at Ambiente.

Texas will be the 13th state distributing Belching Beaver, as well as some international markets including China, Chile, Mexico and Thailand.

Belching Beaver Brewery and Deftones Release White Pony Double Dry Hopped IPA

Honoring the 20th Anniversary of the alternative-rock legends album

San Diego, CA (August 26, 2020) – This is not your average brewery, band partnership. Deftones and Belching Beaver Brewery started their relationship back in 2016 and continue to collaborate on a variety of styles to keep the collaborations fresh and exciting. The award-winning San Diego-based craft brewery is debuting its sixth collaboration with the band on Friday, August 28th. The collaboration beer will roll out to retailers in select U.S. states via 16-ounce can four-packs and a select amount on draft, beginning on August 28. It will be available at all Belching Beaver Brewery locations.

“To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of White Pony, we felt the best way to honor this milestone was to collaborate on a beer loaded with flavor, so we pumped the volume, and double dry hopped this India Pale Ale,” said Marc Truex Director of Sales. “This added an extra layer of hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, resulting in a juicy tropical IPA.”

“Our approach to beer is similar to how we approach our music, it’s constantly changing and evolving to help ensure we’re releasing a quality product that we stand behind,” said Chino Moreno, lead vocalist of Deftones. “With our wonderful partners at Belching Beaver, we’re proud to have collaborated on yet another beer that has been created with care and released with pride.” “We hope everyone enjoys our White Pony 20th IPA, as much as we do.”

White Pony is loaded with intense pineapple aroma, lemon peel, and grapefruit notes. There is an upfront flavor of pineapple but finishes with a soft grapefruit note with a mild bitterness and medium mouthfeel. It has a beautiful amount of layered hop flavors and aromas. Most people will pick out something different – but it’s delicious.

This collaboration is available for a limited time. To learn more about the new beer and Belching Beaver Brewery’s other special release offerings, visit belchingbeaver.com/beer.

Even The Experts Don’t Know Many Of The Nation’s Best Beers

The craft beer explosion has made it virtually impossible for even the most knowledgeable hopheads to keep track of many of America's best beers. So I asked two experts at Tavour, who are certified cicerones and beer judges, to point out some of their current favorites, and I, too, was awakened to numerous beers I never knew existed. Tavour is an online craft beer retail store that says it sells beer from breweries in 47 states.
