Despite having yet to celebrate its first anniversary, Texas Ale Project has quickly built its reputation around a stable of year-round offerings which includes Fire Ant Funeral, 50 FT Jackrabbit IPA, Naked Truth and Somethin' Shady Porter. As for FullClip, the company began operations in September of last year, when they started selling and distributing for Community Beer Company. Since then, they've gone on to add Guns & Oil Brewing of Austin, Texas and Backcountry Brewery of Frisco, Colorado to their developing craft portfolio.
Commenting on the news, T.A.P. President and CEO Kat Thompson said, “We’re excited to partner with FullClip. I believe we share the same mission and goals, and both of our teams are excited to help each other grow in North Texas. FullClip has already been working closely with us to prepare for this next phase in our growth, and they are passionate about great beer. This is going to be a great partnership for both of us.”
FullClip General Manager Joey Marzuola concurred, adding "There's a new demand for a passionate, knowledgeable sales and distribution team like ours in the North Texas market - one that's dedicated exclusively to the needs of craft breweries like Texas Ale Project and others we are partnering with."
According to a press release, while FullClip will work to expand the availability of T.A.P. beers throughout Collin, Tarrant and Denton County, the brewery will continue to self-distribute in Dallas County for the foreseeable future.
