The Best Gift EVER….

December 19, 2011

Beer!

But not just any beer…OUR beer can now be shipped fresh from the brewery directly to the doorstep!

Best gift ever!

Too good to be true?

Impossible, you say?

HOW?  (Now that’s the best question, thanks for asking)!

We are proud to be a part of a groundbreaking project by a company called Beerjobber.  Beerjobber is an online marketplace where you can shop for specialty beers, place your order, and have the beer shipped fresh from the brewery directly to your doorstep!

Why hasn’t anyone done this before?  Another good question!

The answer, though, is not so simple.  Since prohibition, the sales of alcohol have had strict rules that manufacturers (us) have had to follow.  There is an existing tiered system in the United States that mandates alcoholic beverages have to go from the producer to the distributor to the retailer to you!  Whew.

It gets even more complicated…every state grants the wholesaler (middleman) a monopoly. Only one wholesaler sells a particular beer in a given territory.  Together they control the entire beer distribution system in the US.

But there’s more…in order to ship under the existing federal protections, the beer has to cross state lines.  So, for now, those of you who live in the state of Washington can order our beer, but it has to be shipped to someone in another state.  And, there are only 35 states that Beerjobber can ship to.

Doesn’t that seem unfair?  Shouldn’t the American Brewing Company’s beer be able to be consumed by anyone in America?

THUS…YOU, our local fans and supporters, can be ambassadors for the American Brewing Company!  You could also be the best friend or relative in the world by ordering our beer to be shipped to someone you love who lives outside of the state of Washington.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Here is the link to the site   http://www.beerjobber.com/Home/Brew/154
  • The code is: AMERICANHOLIDAY8  (yes, it does need to be in CAPS)
  • On the log-in page go down to the bottom where it says “if you have received an invitation code…”
  • We are offering cases of the Breakaway IPA, Caboose Oatmeal Stout, American Blonde, OR a mix of all 3 styles.

Once you enter the site you will be able to place your order.

Help us to spread the American Brewing love!

Not only that, but let’s start shipping beer! Let’s make this site successful and start chipping away at a system that so strictly restricts the commerce of beer.

Cheers and Happy Holidays!
