The upstart Nolensville brewer Mill Creek Brewing Co. announced good news for the state of Alabama Monday.
The brewery announced that it has signed an agreement with Budweiser Distributors to deliver beer in Huntsville, Birmingham, Shelby County, and Montgomery in April. The Nolensville, Tenn., brewery will continue distribution in Mobile/Gulf Shores in May and Auburn and Tuscaloosa in August.
The company’s Landmark (Vintage Lager), Lil Darlin’ (Citrus Wheat), Woodshed (IPA), and Silo (Farmhouse Ale) beers will be available on draft and in 12-ounce cans in Alabama. Mill Creek said all four beers are “flagship” releases.
“It is pretty crazy, that is for sure, and we are very excited,” founder and CEO Chris Going said. “It is the first state outside of Tennessee we are going into, and we are the first Tennessee brewery to expand to another state within its first year.”
The business, founded by six-year home brewer Going, is located in a brand-new facility in Nolensville.
Mill Creek has a 27,500-square-foot facility with a 30-bbl (barrel) automated brewhouse, quality control lab, 7,500-bbl fermentation capacity and an in-house canning and kegging lines. The brewery added a taproom in February, for the first time selling growlers to-go and beers by the pint.
The doors officially opened last May, and their four brews began appearing in supermarkets, convenience stores and liquor stores across the mid-state. Kroger carries their beer, as do some Publix and Target stores, along with Twice Daily.
