Chicago, IL - November 12, 2018 - Maplewood Brewery & Distillery, proudly brewed in Chicago’s Logan Square, is now distributing in Missouri beginning Monday, November 12th through Craft Republic. There will be events throughout the weekend in St. Louis featuring Maplewood’s year-round, seasonal and limited release beers.

“We’ve always loved the beer scene in Missouri and we’re thrilled to become part of the craft community in the Show Me State”, said Brand Manager & Brewer Adam Smith. “We feel that Craft Republic will be our best partner in delivering the juice to the good people of our neighboring state!”

Maplewood is offering its year-round and current seasonal and limited releases, such as: Charlatan American Pale Ale ( 2016 & 2018 GABF Bronze APA) , Son of Juice IPA, Fat Pug Oatmeal Milk Stout ( 2017 GABF Bronze Oatmeal Stout) , and Pulaski Pils ( Beer & Brewing Exceptionally Distinguished ) . Juice Pants IPA and Brownie Points Brown Ale w/ vanilla will be among the seasonal and limited release beers.

“We are stoked to be partnering with Maplewood Brewery & Distillery! Maplewood’s beers are not only an amazing combo of highly regarded IPA’s but also a stellar Pilsner, a GABF awarded American Pale Ale, an oatmeal milk stout named after a chubby pug, and much more. As a bonus, we get to work with a great bunch of humans. Including our industry friend, Jeff Doerr from St. Louis. It’s time to have some fun!”, said Founder Brian Dix of Craft Republic.

Maplewood began commercial distribution in the fall of 2014 with Louis Glunz Beer Inc.
