Blue Point

07-17-2011

Blue PointOur mission is and always will be to be very selective in the brands that we pursue and add to our growing High End portfolio. As you opened up the West Side Beer Distributing home page, you surely noticed the upcoming addition to our craft portfolio.


Blue Point Brewing Co. is Long Island's sole brewery and is currently the fastest growing craft brewery on the East Coast. Nationally, they are the 37th largest selling craft brewer in America, through 2010. Their distribution currently covers only 11 States. So, their growth potential is tremendous.


The brewery was founded in 1998 by two long time friends, Mark Burford and Pete Cotter. The brewery was inspired by their life-long dream and built from a rare assemblage of equipment collected from breweries around the country. The brewery's unique direct-fire brew kettle, dismantled brick by brick from a brewery in Maryland and rebuilt in Patchogue, imparts a lightly toasted, complex taste to produce a line of ultra premium microbrews. Building the brewery has truly been a "Labor of Love".


In mid-August, we will launch with three signature brands in the West Michigan Market: Toasted Lager, Hoptical Illusion, and RastafaRye Ale. All three selections will be available, only in draft, for the first 90 days. After that, consumers will be able to take six packs home with them.


Also.... we are proud to announce that the brewery will be investing in local events starting as the signature beer sponsor for this year's East Town Street Fair in early September.
