After years of limited distribution runs, events, and good times in the Centennial State, we are absolutely thrilled to announce the advent of permanent distribution for Modern Times in Colorado. Year-round distribution in Colorado has been a long-time goal of ours, and we couldn’t be more pleased to finally have the production volume to see it come to fruition. Resident Modern Times enthusiasts can expect to find our lineup of year-rounds, seasonal IPAs, coffees, and a volley of monthly special releases hitting shelves and taps all over the state beginning the week of June 24th.
In order to get our beer out to the Colorado public via the most elegant avenues available, we’ll be partnering with Elite Brands and High Country Beverages, two distributors who share our passion for craft beer, and whose commitment to quality will ensure that our beverages reach fans in the most pristine condition possible.
“We’re incredibly excited to begin full-time distribution in Colorado,” said Modern Times CEO and Founder, Jacob McKean, “Ever since my first trip to Denver for GABF in 2010, I’ve dreamed of seeing our beer on the shelves there. We tend to do best in places with highly knowledgeable craft beer drinkers, and Colorado certainly fits the bill.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Modern Times for distribution in Colorado”, said Terry Cekola, Owner and President of Elite Brands,“We’ve been big fans of the beers and the team at Modern Times for a while after pulsing limited amounts of beer into the market starting at GABF in 2017. These market pulses over the years have suggested that our savvy Colorado beer drinkers are ready for year-round availability! We’re looking forward to launching Modern Times with a series of launch parties the week of June 24th.”
We’ll be celebrating the new launch with a week of events throughout the state, featuring beers that will be distributed year-round, as well as a few rare, hard-to-find treats for event attendees.
