Carolina On My Mind
Captain Lawrence is expanding its presence up and down the East Coast. Brewmaster and Owner Scott Vaccaro will be in South Carolina the week of Sept. 12 for the statewide Beer Week bash, sharing some of New York’s finest beers with our southern neighbors. Director of sales Keith Fekete was recently in North Carolina, speaking with distributors about carrying Captain Lawrence in that state. “We’re excited about the possibility of bringing our beer to that market,” says Scott.
After SC, Scott heads up the coast to Maryland, where Captain Lawrence will be featured in a trade show hosted by local distributor Legends Limited. DC metro residents can expect to see Captain Lawrence beers, including the Hop Commander IPA, the Clearwater Kolsch, the flagship Freshchester Pale Ale, in October.
“Washington is a great beer market,” says Scott, “with a lot of people with New York roots who know our brand.”
The Philly suburbs and the Lehigh Valley also get their Captain Lawrence in September, with the distributor Shangy’s doing the local legwork.
