ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The award-winning La Cumbre Brewing is expanding to Arizona, the company announed on Twitter on Monday.
It will launch its products in the Phoenix market, beginning Oct. 9, with plans to roll out La Cumbre beer statewide within a
few weeks after that, President Jeff Erway said.
“The responses on our Twitter account and Facebook and things like that has been overwhelmingly from Arizona,” Erway said. “Arizona seems like the state that’s most thirsty for La Cumbre beer.”
La Cumbre will distribute its year-round and seasonal beers in both packaged and draft forms, and will sell its merchandise through its distributor, as well as at beer festivals.
Erway said La Cumbre earlier expanded to Colorado not because of customer demand, but because Colorado already had a strong craft beer infrastructure. Now that the company is firmly established, Erway said it’s a good time to expand again.
