Washington, DC – The Penn Quarter Porter is now available in Pennsylvania! DC BRAU is thrilled to be working with Bella Vista Beer (bellavistabeverage.com) to distribute several of our signature beers throughout Eastern Pennsylvania.



“We are really excited to bring DC BRAU to Philadelphia and the surrounding counties,” says Brandon Skall, co-founder & CEO of DC BRAU Brewing Company. “We have long had personal and professional ties to the great city of Philadelphia, and we’re stoked to have our brews on beer lists and shelves amongst some of the best craft beer in the US.”

Cans of The Corruption, The Public, Penn Quarter Porter, and The Citizen are available, in limited quantities initially, in Bucks, Berks, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton and Philadelphia counties. This is the first major expansion for DC BRAU outside the DC metro region.

In 2013, DC BRAU launch distribution in Montgomery County, Maryland, with plans to begin distribution throughout the rest of the state in the coming months.  “We’re definitely excited to launch sales in our neighboring state to the north, and hope to have our brew in restaurants and retailers across the border very soon,” says Skall. “Maryland is a massive priority for us in 2014.”

“Bella Vista worked hard to grow from a little mom and pop retailer to a respected distribution company that still maintains a family atmosphere, and that really resonates with us,” says Skall. “They also have the craft beer portfolio to prove they know how to help us expand our brand into the best beer bars and stores in the area.“

About Bella Vista Beer Distributors: Started as a fledgling mom and pop retailer in 1983 by immigrants Marinos and Olimpia Fetfatzes, Bella Vista quickly gained the trust of customers based on word of mouth and excellent customer service. The following years led major expansions, and property acquisitions preparing for the next big thing, craft beer. Bella Vista broke into the craft beer wholesale scene in 2006. Since then has been one of the most trusted, and fasted growing independent craft beer wholesaler and retailer in the country and has never looked back. Bella Vista now represents craft brewers small and large from all over the world and continues to be run by Marinos Fetfatzes and his family serving one of the thirstiest markets in the country. Bella Vista is presently Philadelphia’s only independent craft beer wholesaler.

Co-founders Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock are DC locals with a passion for brewing, complimented by years of experience in beverage distribution.
