Lincoln, NE -- Thursday, February 20, 2014 -- Zipline Brewing Company is pleased to announce the launch of Iowa distribution in partnership with Johnson Brothers of Iowa, Inc.

Distribution commences in March throughout Johnson Brothers’ Iowa territory, including Des Moines, Iowa City and Council Bluffs. The partnership follows the dynamic growth of Zipline from a small startup in 2012 to its present capacity of over 3,000 barrels annually, pacing since July 2013 as Nebraska’s third largest production brewery.

This marks the first time Zipline products will be sold outside of Nebraska.

"We are excited to bring what we consider an outstanding ‘local’ brewery across the River into Iowa,” says Lyle Stutzman, President Johnson Brothers of Iowa.

Distribution events kickoff with tap takeovers in two of the country’s premier beer bars: Reds Alehouse in North Liberty on March 5, and El Bait Shop in Des Moines on March 6.

Head Brewer and Chief of Operations Marcus Powers, who will attend both events and others as part of the launch, relishes the opportunity.

“We already feel a solid connection to Iowa beer consumers given our close proximity and their appreciation for local craft," Powers said. "And, we couldn’t find better partners in Johnson Brothers. We’re committed to making some of the best beer in America and can’t wait to share it with our neighbors.”
