We’ve decided to self distribute our Brett Cider into Minneapolis instead of using a distributor for this first round.

Allocating 150 cases (750ml) to the metro area and I’m wondering what are the "Need to be" locations? Also, if any of you work for a store/bar let me know.

Here is some more info on the product.

Zipps
Heritage Liquor
The Winfe Theif & Ale Jail
Four Firkins
Blue Max
Princeton’s Liquors


I know a handful of local Ratebeerians work at or have connections with places, I do not :(

Great list. I’d add Elevated to the list as well.

As for the Four Firkins, it may be in your best interest to wait and let a distributor deal with them. From what I understand they are not an easy vendor. They are very demanding and complain a lot. This is what I hear anyway.

This could be true but its a popular beer store and they are knowledgeable about their products, which might be beneficial for a newer product.

I didn’t know Oso had a koelschip. Are you brewing lambic style beers as well as the cider? If you make a good lambic/gueuze, I think we would buy a lot of it.

I have a coolship, and the lambic stuff is under Funk Factory. The cider stuff is separate and a partnership between myself and Mitch Leidel under the name Leidel’s Cider.

I wish I was producing enough lambic to distribute much less distribute to MN! Hopefully one day.
