Crafte Artisan Meadery announced today that it is expanding its distribution territory to include Virginia and Washington DC with respected Virginia-based distributor Hop and Wine representing the brand.

“We’re super excited to be entering these new markets and even more excited to be doing it with such a well respected distributor partner” said Crafted owner Kent Waldeck. “We have a ton of great things coming and we’re stoked to be able to now include our fans in Virginia and DC” said Waldeck.

Hop and Wine is equally enthusiastic about the partnership. “Crafted’s focus on producing high quality honey-based beverages caught our attention and we are certain that consumers here in the mid-Atlantic will be excited once they get an opportunity to taste for themselves” said Joseph Fritz, Manager at Hop and Wine.

Crafted Artisan Meadery has undergone dramatic growth since their opening just two short years ago. Their still and sparkling meads in bottle and draft formats have garnered a number of awards and acclaims. Most recently Crafted won a gold medal for their Pollinator sparkling mead at the Mazer Cup International Mead Competition in Boulder, Co. Partnering with Hop and Wine now brings their total distribution footprint to six states and Washington DC. “We have a number of additional distribution plans in the works and will be sharing more details very soon” said Waldeck.
