(DURANGO, CO) – Ska Distributing is excited to expand its portfolio of beers available across Southwest Colorado with the addition of WeldWerks Brewing Co. The infamous Juicy Bits Hazy IPA as well as WeldWerks’ rotating offerings will hit shelves this week.
Ska Brewing and WeldWerks have long been industry friends and fellow judges at the Great American Beer Festival, where they discovered their shared commitment to beer quality and consistency. “Partnering with Ska for distribution to Southwest Colorado was a natural fit for us at WeldWerks,” says Alex Paine, Director of Sales. “They know that market better than anyone. Their attention to quality and relationships align perfectly with our focus on expanding our Colorado footprint.”
Years into their friendship when Ska was researching and developing The Hazy IPA, they looked to WeldWerks Juicy Bits as one of the best industry examples of the style. This cult-followed hazy was one of the first beers in this style category in Colorado, and it was chosen in the 2019 Best Beers in America survey conducted by Zymurgy Magazine; among many other recognitions.
“The mission of our distribution company is to bring otherwise unavailable beers to our rural community,” says Ska Brewing Co-Founder and CEO Dave Thibodeau. “We like to bring them the best of the best.”
WeldWerks Juicy Bits IPA and other rotating beers from the Greeley-based brewery will be available through Ska Distributing beginning this week. Those interested in carrying WeldWerks can contact [email protected].
