Brewer Entertainment forges multi-year agreement with Capital Distributing to provide Oklahoma craft beer at events
OKLAHOMA CITY (Feb. 25, 2016) – Brewer Entertainment has signed a multi-year partnership with Capital Distributing in a move to ensure products by Oklahoma craft breweries are available at concerts and events held at the Chevy Bricktown Events Center.
“Consumer demand for craft beer is booming, so to ensure patrons attending events at the Chevy Bricktown Events Center, and our other annual events in Bricktown, have the best possible experience we felt it necessary to provide a diverse selection of beverages that includes local craft beer brands,” Brewer Entertainment CEO Brent Brewer said. “This agreement reflects our commitment to providing what our customers want as well as supporting the Oklahoma breweries who are making a difference in their communities.”
According to the Brewers Association, Oklahoma currently ranks 47th in the nation for the number of craft breweries with 10, and 33rd in the nation for economic impact at $416 million.
To be considered “craft,” a brewery must be largely independent of outside corporate ownership, produce fewer than six million barrels per year and use traditional ingredients such as malted barley or innovative ingredients to enhance flavor.
Capital Distributing, LLC was formed in 2001 with the merger of City Beverage (Miller) and Coors Distributing Company. Along with their affiliated companies 6 Point Beverages and Oklahoma Beer Imports, the company distributes a diverse portfolio of products including national brands like Coors, Miller, Corona and Dos XX, and a number of Oklahoma craft brewers including: Anthem Brewing Company, Battered Boar Brewing Company, Choc Beer Company, COOP Ale Works, Marshall Brewing Company and Mustang Brewing Company.
Founded in 1991, Brewer Entertainment is an Oklahoma City-based events producer and facility manager that owns and operates the Chevy Bricktown Events Center.
