Artisanal Imports announced it has partnered with North Coast Brewing Co. of Fort Bragg, California, to be its sales and marketing partner for the central and eastern regions of the United States.
North Coast Brewing Company is located on Northern California’s Mendocino Coast and has been a pioneer in the craft beer movement since 1988. Known for its Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, Scrimshaw Pilsner, Brother Thelonious Abbey Ale, PranQster Belgian Style Golden Ale, and other fine brands, the brewery operates with a mission to “Make the World a Better Place, One Pint at a Time.”
“We are thrilled to partner with the Artisanal team to introduce our portfolio to new markets around the country,” says Jeffrey Ottoboni, Chief Executive Officer of North Coast Brewing. “The North Coast brand continues to expand, and we are delighted to have the support of Artisanal Imports.”
North Coast is also a leader in philanthropy and sustainability. In addition to being a Certified B Corporation, and a California Benefit Corporation, the brewery is a TRUE Platinum Zero Waste certified business, offering 14 Non-GMO Project verified beers. They also spearhead an innovative carbon-farming project to reverse their carbon footprint to advance regenerative agriculture.

The brewery has recently moved into cans that will certainly open new doors. I believe this will be a great partnership, and we will both reap the benefits of our expertise.”
