Two Roads Brewing Co. and Area Two Experimental Brewing Expand Distribution to Minnesota

Two Roads Brewing Company and Area Two Experimental Brewing are excited to announce the launch of their diverse portfolio of products in Minnesota. Offerings from both breweries are now available on shelves and on draft.

Two Roads is the 47th largest independent craft beer brand in the United States, as reported in the Brewer’s Association “Top 50 Breweries of 2019 by Sales Volume.” The driving force behind these artfully crafted beers is Master Brewer, Phil Markowski. Markowski is an industry veteran of over 30 years, recipient of the Institute for Brewing Studies Russell Scherer Award for Innovation in Craft Brewing and author of the book Farmhouse Ales. He and his team have created a lineup of products that span the craft beer spectrum.


“We plan to focus on our unique offerings from our Area Two Experimental Brewing facility as well as select beers from our consistently reliable Two Roads core lineup,” said Director of Sales, Meghan Zachry.

Acclaimed mainstay products like Two Juicy Hazy Juicy IPA, No Limits Hefeweizen and Tanker Truck Passion Fruit Gose will complement a variety of rotating offerings from both Two Roads and Area Two.

Area Two is a relatively recent expansion for Two Roads Brewing Company that opened in the Spring of 2019. The state-of-the-art facility is a sour, barrel-aging and experimental brewery situated on their 10-acre campus in Stratford, CT. Here, Markowski and his team focus on the wild and spontaneous side of brewing. “We will continue to innovate, redefine and stretch the definition of beer,” says Markowski.

Twoquila, a tequila barrel-aged lime gose, and Synopsis, a revolving line of fruited wild sour ales, are just two examples of the experimental brews that Minnesotans can look to enjoy from Area Two.

Two Roads will also launch their H2ROADS Craft Hard Seltzer brand in the state. This line of hard seltzers was created using 100% real fruit, instead of relying on extracts and artificial flavors. Not only does the real fruit give each flavor a standout color, but this craft hard seltzer line is also gluten free and low on calories, carbs and sugar.

“We are very excited that Two Roads and Area Two have chosen us as their distribution partner in Minnesota” said Clear River Beverage Vice President, Jake Sauter. “They produce world-class products across multiple styles. We cannot wait to see the excitement in Minnesota for their brands this summer and beyond.” Zachry reciprocated, saying, “The Clear River Beverage team has an obvious passion for craft beer, excellent customer service and strong community support. We look forward to maintaining those philosophies through our presence in Minnesota while continuing to encourage beer lovers everywhere to take the road less traveled!”
