This is sure to get Missouri craft-beer fiends fired up for the new year: Stone Brewing Co. out of Escondido, Calif., is making plans to begin distribution here in 2011.
“Yes, I believe that we may be able to line everything up to be able to start shipping into Missouri next year,” Stone CEO Greg Koch told me this evening. “Still tentative, but looking promising.”
If it happens, the Stone-to-Missouri move would come after several years of persuasion from St. Louis craft-beer fans, who began an e-mail campaign to get Stone to distribute here.
