Halpatter Brewing of Lake City, Florida has inked a deal for distribution with Cone Distributing.
Cone Distributing (Team Cone) is proud to announce a partnership with Halpatter Brewing of Lake City, Florida. Halpatter Brewing (Halpatter) is best known for their locally-inspired beers and their wonderful facility located in the heart of Lake City. Halpatter’s ownership is excited to take the next step in the life of their young brewery and become a distributing brewery.
“We at Team Cone are looking forward to partnering with a brewery that is so active locally and so excited about making great beer and having an impact in the community,” says Charlie Ingrilli, Vice President of Sales for Cone Distributing.
Halpatter Brewing echoes Team Cone’s excitement and says that Team Cone was their first choice for distributing their beer. “Team Cone is just like us,” says Halpatter co-owner and managing partner Chris Candler. “Team Cone just aligns with our philosophy – the company is unlike anyone else. When we talked to them, they were all about growing our brand and developing a brand presence, which is what we’ve always been about.”
Halpatter will begin distributing their beer locally in the Lake City area and with time, the craft brewery will be available further into Team Cone’s 22-county distribution footprint.
Team Cone will be bringing in and selling Halpatter’s core beers, with a focus on selling O”leno Cream Ale and Old School Session IPA first, with other releases to follow.
