Great Raft Brewing Expands Distribution to Tennessee


Great Raft Brewing is thrilled to announce its expansion into Tennessee this
Spring, bringing its full line of products to the entire state.

Beginning April 18th, Great Raft will be available on draft and in cans throughout Tennessee.

“Since our trip to Nashville for Craft Brewers Conference back in 2018, we have looked forward
to the day that Great Raft Brewing would be available on shelves there. The diverse beer scene
along with support from a strong partner in distribution made it an easy decision to launch in
Tennessee – our first new market to enter in nearly five years” says Andrew Nations, President
and Co-Founder of Great Raft Brewing.

Reasonably CorruptTM black lager, Southern DrawlTM dry hopped pilsner, CommotionTM hazy pale
ale and Life ItselfTM fruited gose, Great Raft’s year-around beers, will be available on tap and in
cans throughout Tennessee markets April. Seasonal and small-batch offerings, including Great
Raft’s award-winning Double IPA, Grace and Grit, will also be released during the launch.
For distribution, Great Raft is partnering with Best Brands – a distributor with a passion for
great beer and unwavering commitment to quality.

“Best Brands is extremely excited to bring on another Louisiana brand to our portfolio,
especially one as phenomenal as Great Raft Brewing. Their liquids and packaging are top-notch
and our team is more than excited for this partnership and to begin selling Great Raft products
throughout Tennessee,” says Elise McKracken, Vice President of Sales.

To celebrate the launch of Great Raft Brewing’s beers, craft beer drinkers will be able to join
the founders and sales team of Great Raft Brewing at a variety of soon-to-be-announced events
throughout Nashville and Memphis.
