Deschutes Brewery has reached an agreement with a national beer and wine distributor to sell some of its brews in Chicago starting in January.
The distribution deal with Wirtz beverage group includes plans to start selling Deschutes’ Northwest Pale Ale, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Chainbreaker White IPA and Black Butte Porter, according to a news release issued by the companies.
The move would make Chicago the easternmost point for Deschutes Brewery’s sales in the U.S., according to the company’s website. The addition of Illinois brings Deschutes’ market coverage to 20 U.S. states and two Canadian provinces.
