We are proud to announce our new distributor partnerships in the great state of Colorado!

Six distributors will help bring Bell’s entire portfolio, as seasonally available, to the Centennial State this fall.

These new distributors are strategically located throughout the state and share our commitment to quality: Breakthru Distributing in Denver, RMC Distributing Company in Colorado Springs, High Country Beverage in Ft. Collins and Grand Junction, Mountain Beverage in the Vail Valley, B&K Distributing in Steamboat Springs and A&L Coors in Durango and Alamosa.

“Colorado is a state that we hear from a lot and we’ve sent a few shipments over the years that have all been incredibly well-received. We are now in a position, from a resources perspective, to launch full-time. As we make our way west, it makes perfect sense to head there next,” said Larry Bell, President and Founder of Bell’s Brewery.

We added seven states to our distribution network in June – Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, and New Jersey. Colorado will bring our distribution footprint to 40 total states in addition to Puerto Rico and Washington DC.

Applications for two sales positions based in Denver will be accepted through July 29.

Launch celebrations are being planned. Additional information will be announced as details are finalized here at and on our social media.
