After closing on a deal to sell a majority interest to Tenth and Blake Beer Co., the craft and import division of MillerCoors, on Friday, Revolver Brewing of Granbury, Texas, announced it has entered into a partnership with Andrews Distributing for the delivery of its products in Dallas and Fort Worth.
Revolver was founded in 2012 by the father and son team of Ron and Rhett Keisler. The Keisler's were joined on the project by Grant Wood, who had made a name for himself as a brewmaster with Samuel Adams. The group then went on to create a portfolio of upwards of 20 beers, including the brewery's flagship brand, Blood & Honey American Ale.
Mike McGuire, president of Andrews Distributing, said the Andrews team looks forward to working with Revolver and supporting such a strong brewery.
"It's been great to watch Ron, Rhett, Grant and the entire Revolver team build such a strong brand in their short history," said McGuire. "Revolver has become a local craft staple in the Dallas/Fort Worth area due to their team's hard work and attention to detail, and we look forward to helping build their brands in our backyard for years to come."
A perspective on the partnership from Revolver's point of view was provided by co-founder Rhett Keisler, who indicated the coming together of the two companies made for a perfect fit.
"We are looking forward to working with the team at Andrews," said Keisler. "Andrews has a reputation in the market for quality and service, and that really fits well with our ethos of hard work and doing things right. We think the combination of our beers with the distribution power and knowledge of craft beer Andrews brings to the table is going to make for a powerful partnership in the market."
According to a press release, Andrews will begin distributing Revolver beers throughout North Texas, with the exception of Denton County, on September 12.
