Creature Comforts Expands Distribution to 1st Market Outside Georgia: Charleston, South Carolina

Creature Comforts Brewing Company is thrilled to announce its expansion to South Carolina’s Charleston and Hilton Head markets starting mid-May. Six Creature Comforts beers will be available on draft only throughout Charleston and Hilton Head Island.
“This decision was a long time in the making,” said Creature Comforts CEO Chris Herron. “We’ve always been fans of Charleston’s hospitality and culinary scene, and since we already distribute to coastal Georgia, it felt like the right step as we begin distributing outside of Georgia for the first time.”
Six beers from Creature Comforts’ year-round lineup will be available in select Charleston and Hilton Head Island locations: Tropicália, Automatic, Athena, Tritonia, Bibo and Cosmik Debris. Eleven seasonal beers will also be available, including six Hazy IPAs, Athena Paradiso varieties and Koko Buni.

New market, new distribution partnership
Creature Comforts tapped Lee Distributors, part of the Reyes Beer Division, to be its first distribution partner outside of Georgia. Reyes is the largest beer distributor in the United States, delivering over 251 million cases each year.
“We have been huge fans of Creature Comforts from a distance for quite a while,” said Lee Distributors Marketing Manager Joe Morrison. “Their vision and commitment to quality across the board was something that we aligned on right from the start—quality product, quality brands, and quality people.”

The expansion comes at a significant moment in Creature Comforts’ history. 2021 marks the brewery’s 7th anniversary, along with plans to open a second brewery and taproom in Los Angeles later this year. The brewery will announce Charleston market launch events soon.
