Brew Pipeline, a direct-access platform between craft beverage producers and new markets, announced this week its partnership with Proof Artisan Distillers of Fargo, North Dakota. Glen Fargo American Malt Whiskey (single malt whiskey), Crooked Furrow (four year bourbon) and Harvest Blend (two year bourbon) will join the Portfolio program. This marks the first time that a craft spirit will join Brew Pipeline’s Portfolio. All three spirits are available nationwide, excluding North Dakota and Arizona, for year-round distribution.
Brothers Joel and Jay Kath are the founders and distillers at Proof Artisan Distillers – awarded with more than 30 awards at national competitions since 2015. All spirits are produced from locally sourced grains entirely on site in their historic downtown Fargo distillery.
“We’re very excited to be teamed with Brew Pipeline for this launch across the country,” says Joel Kath, president of Proof Artisan Distillers. “This is more than just a national launch of our craft method whiskies, but it’s also Brew Pipeline’s inaugural launch of any distilled spirit. I am deeply honored that our spirits are the first to join the Brew Pipeline Portfolio program. Cheers!”
