The coming year will be one of expansion for WeldWerks Brewing Company as the Greeley, Colorado based craft brewer will more than double the number of markets its beer will be available in. Last year the brewery expanded its production brewery with a new 30-barrel 4-vessel steam brewhouse.
This larger brewhouse means new beers and fan favorites across 26 markets all across the United States. WeldWerks Brewing will expand from its 180+ unique beers produced including 21 barrel-aged bottle releases, and 33 beer collaborations for the coming year ahead as it announces its 2024 Beer Release Calendar.
“Especially with the brewhouse expansion, which gives us greater capacity to brew more beer at a more efficient rate, we’re able to stretch our legs quite a bit and explore more states and distribution partners,” says WeldWerks Sales Manager Chris Michener. “We’re excited that we’ll be reaching more people than ever before!” In 2024, WeldWerks core and quarterly release brands will be available at participating retailers in the target markets beyond Colorado: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington D.C., and Washington State.
The selection of WeldWerks’ 2024 beer release calendar was a collaborative effort among brewing, sales, marketing, and new this year—consumers.
“We decided to open up our 4th quarter Hazy Double India Pale Ale selection to our loyal customers. We believe that providing them with the opportunity to have their voices heard by helping us select from eight of our favorite Hazy Double IPAs from the past few years is a great way to engage with our consumers while also bringing them into our community,” says WeldWerks Head Brewer Skip Schwartz. “We are delighted with their pick of Doom & Bloom and can’t wait to see that beer on shelves and draft lines in the later part of the year!”
WeldWerks’ 2024 Beer Release Calendar has Juicy Bits and Extra Extra Juicy Bits returning as year-round favorites; the brewery also welcomes Colorado Ale, an easy-drinking beer made with Coloradans in mind, and the immensely popular Hefeweizen all year long. Quarterly sours, like Bamm Bamm Rubble Rubble, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Orange Creamsiclewill be available on a quarterly basis, as well as hazy beers like Transmountain Diversion, a collaboration with Casey Brewing & Blending, and Doom & Bloom, the customer-selected Hazy Double IPA.
