Mims Distributing Company Adds Carolina Brewing Company to Its Roster
Distributor Expands Beer Selections with Brands from Holly Springs Brewery
Mims Distributing Company (http://www.mimsdistributing.com), a beer distributor that services a nine-county area in and around the Triangle, has announced that it has added Carolina Brewing Company brands to its roster. Based in Holly Springs, N.C., Carolina Brewing features three year-round, four seasonal and four special occasion beers, including Carolina Pale Ale, a light-bodied amber beer that is one of the best-selling beers in the Triangle.
Starting as a concept developed by two brothers, John and Greg Shuck, and their friend, Joe Zonin, Carolina Brewing Company began operations in 1994 and brewed its first beer, Carolina Pale Ale, in 1995. Later that same year, the brewery introduced Carolina Nut Brown Ale, adding seasonal beers in 1996, bottles in 1997 and Carolina IPA in 2005. In 2011, Mark Heath and Van Smith joined the brewery as partners, with the idea of growing the much-loved brand beyond the Triangle.
Carolina Brewing Company’s year-round styles include Carolina Pale Ale, Carolina India Pale Ale and Carolina Nut Brown Ale. Seasonal brands include Carolina Spring Bock, Carolina Summer Ale, Carolina Oktoberfest Lager and Carolina Winter Porter. For more information on the brewery, visit http://www.carolinabrew.com.
“We are very excited to announce our partnership with Carolina Brewing Company,” said Chip Mims, CEO. “This brewery produces one of the most beloved beers in the Triangle, Carolina Pale Ale, and we are so happy to be able to help them expand their brand’s footprint throughout our service region.”
“Carolina Brewing Company is excited to join the Mims Distributing family in the Triangle,” said Joe Zonin, sales manager of Carolina Brewing Company. “Mims Distributing has the craft beer expertise and dedicated service that we need to continue our accelerated growth in the region.”
