Artisan Distributing launched in 2008; a small family owned distributorship created to fill a void that existed in the craft beer distribution system. Small breweries were overshadowed in the traditional system by large national brands, and needed a home with a distributorship that offered a personal experience.Artisan was created to bridge the gap between craft breweries and craft beer-centric accounts. We listen to the needs of our brewery partners and our retail, bar, and restaurant partners, and by listening we are continually learning, seeking, and striving to provide a top drawer experience. The Artisan team is comprised of people who believe passionately in the art behind beer; we go behind the scene and learn the stories behind the beers, all the while tasting new and established brewery offerings. This is who we were in 2008, and this is who we are today, committed to bringing bold beer to the scene, committed to always being part of the conversation.
