Ska Distributing Adds Lone Tree Brewing To Southwest Portfolio

DURANGO, CO— Lone Tree Brew­ing Company’s col­lec­tion of canned beers are now avail­able in South­west Col­orado through dis­tri­b­u­tion part­ner Ska Distributing.

The friend­ship between these two Col­orado craft brew­eries began when they served togeth­er on the Col­orado Brew­ers Guild board of direc­tors, and stayed strong over the years through their com­mon­al­i­ty of a flag­ship Mex­i­can-style Lager. “John Win­ter of Lone Tree and I always bond­ed over sim­i­lar val­ues, beer styles like Mex­i­can-style Lagers,  and the fun atmos­phere of both of our brew­eries,” says Ska Brew­ing Sales & Mar­ket­ing Direc­tor Kris­ten Muraro. “When our Sales Rep Devin lived near (some say at) Lone Tree Brew­ing he was one of their reg­u­lars. It was his ini­tial idea to collaborate.”

In March of 2020, the team from Lone Tree trav­eled to Duran­go to brew a col­lab­o­ra­tion beer at Ska, and before they even made it home, Col­lab­o­ra­tion Fest was can­celled due to COVID-19. The pan­dem­ic might have stopped them from releas­ing this col­lab­o­ra­tion, but it couldn’t keep these brew­eries from con­tin­u­ing to work together.

Fast for­ward to 2021 and we believe the col­lab­o­ra­tion was a suc­cess­ful fail­ure,” says Den­nis Stack, Lone Tree Brew­ing Sales & Mar­ket­ing Direc­tor. “The South­west region of Col­orado was the miss­ing piece of our dis­tri­b­u­tion foot­print and the rep­u­ta­tion Ska has built in the area made the deci­sion a no-brain­er— we admire what they do to build brands and enjoy work­ing with their great peo­ple. We are beyond excit­ed to explore this new chap­ter of dis­tri­b­u­tion with a great team behind the wheel.”

To cel­e­brate the part­ner­ship, Ska Brew­ing is tap­ping a guest keg of Lone Tree Vanil­la Caramel Amber. This red-hued ale is enhanced with vanil­la beans and caramel malt, with no addi­tion­al sug­ar added. It will be on draft at World Head­quar­ters while sup­plies last.

Six packs of Lone Tree IPA, Mex­i­can Lager, Straw­ber­ry Kiwi Blonde Ale, Red Ale, Peach Pale, Dou­ble IPA, and spring sea­son­al Pome­gran­ate Wit, as well as Lone Tree’s Brewer’s Bun­dle mixed 12-packs are now avail­able in Duran­go, Tel­luride, Ridg­way, and Ouray through Ska Dis­trib­ut­ing. Find Lone Tree beers at Skyridge Liquors, Macs Liquors, WJ Doyle, 6th Street Liquors, and Wag­on Wheel Liquors, with more to come. Accounts look­ing to pur­chase Lone Tree beer should con­tact Justin Crump at justin@skabrewing.com.

Global Can shortage

During these difficult times, many obstacles have emerged and currently the brewing community is experiencing an aluminum can shortage. We at Lone Tree Brewing wanted to let our fans know that we are working hard to keep beer on the shelves. However, you may notice some of our cans will look slightly different than they typically do as we utilize cans from many irregular sources. Rest assured, the beer will remain true and we will continue to provide quality craft beer to our community.

Many cheers to our friends!
