Athens Brewery to Expand Distribution to Augusta, Columbus
Athens-based brewery Creature Comforts has announced that it will expand distribution to two new markets in the state: Augusta and Columbus.
The brewery, which has a strong presence in both Athens in Atlanta, wrote in a Facebook post on Friday that it will work with its distributor, Savannah Distributing, to expand into Augusta and Columbus. Its distribution has been limited to Athens, Atlanta and surrounding areas since the brewery opened in 2014.
The expansion will reportedly begin in mid-November.
The expansion comes after Creature Comforts opened a new $11 million, 40,000-square-foot distribution facility earlier this year, increasing the brewery’s production capacity by around 40 percent.
“The additional increase in production capacity will allow us to expand our current distribution footprint outside of our existing markets and into new ones – Augusta & Columbus, we’re coming for you!” the company wrote in the post.
