02 Jun Report: Hoosier Brewing Co. Expanding
A brewery planning to move to Franklin has found its way onto the shelves of one of Indiana’s biggest grocery store chains.
Soon-to-be Franklin-based Hoosier Brewing Co. is now sold at each of the 34 Meijer grocery stores in Indiana. At the 14 central Indiana locations, the beer has its own display and also is promoted on the ends of shelves near the beer aisle. At 20 other locations across the state, you can find the brews in the beer aisle.
Hoosier Brewing Co. owner Brian Nentrup was approached by representatives of Meijer who were interested in his product and the possibility of selling his beer at the company’s Indiana locations, Nentrup said. Nentrup traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan, to meet with Meijer’s corporate staff earlier this year and a distribution deal was reached.
