TUPPS - not just for McKinney anymore

OK, North Texas… I guess we can share. Go ahead and discover one of our favorite local treasures: TUPPS Brewery. After self-distributing in North Texas for over 2 years, TUPPS has joined with Ben E. Keith who began distributing TUPPS brews to 36 counties this month.

Chase Lewis, VP of sales at TUPPS Brewery, said in a press release: “To be successful in the beer business you have to, first and foremost, make great beer. Second, you have to present yourself well to the market. Last, but very far from least, you have to manage the distribution of your product very well. It’s an incredibly difficult and important part of this industry. Ben E. Keith has been distributing beer in North Texas with excellence for decades. We couldn’t be happier to be partnering with such a strong and supportive distribution company.”

It's no wonder TUPPS is growing so quickly - their brews are fantastic and they offer a variety of seasonal selections. Only 1 year after opening in May 2015, the local brewery saw a 400% increase in volume. Currently there is construction happening on their premises to allow for more production and we have a feeling they'll need it with all the new folks who are about to experience brews such as Texas Shade, their IPA, and For Ella (among many more).
