August 2017


Summer is wrapping up, and we are busy preparing for another great fall season of festive craft brews and supplying you with the best beers for football watching. Bud Light is the official beer sponsor of the NFL. Cheer on your favorite team while drinking a classic Bud. The New England Patriots first game is on Thursday, September 7. Invite your friends over for a fun night of football and celebrate the start of the season with a round of Bud Light.

Stay tuned for our annual Octoberfest, pumpkin and fall beers. There are some new craft brews coming up, as well as the return of your classic favorites. Fall seasonals will be available to view on our website as well as posted to our Facebook page in the near future.

Also, a reminder that a lot of our summer seasonals are still available or you can see our full product portfolio by going to our website at and go to the "Our Products" section of the site.

National Distributors, Inc. 

Newburyport Brewing Co.

We are excited to announce that National Distributors is now carrying Newburyport Brewing Co.! NBPT was founded by two funk band musicians, Bill and Chris, who were inspired to create the company after watching the Bruins win the Stanley Cup. Their brand is based on three things: using the best ingredients, sharing Newburyport and its rich seaport history, and adventuring with a great beer in a can. They have a passion for both beer and music, and support local artists with a stage to jam on at their brewery.

We are offering Greenhead IPA, Hop Variety, Maritime Lager, Melt Away IPA and Plum Island Belgian White. Many are available in both cans and on tap.

Melt Away: A refreshing session IPA shining with Citra and Amarillo hops uniquely balanced by malt sweetness for a crisp, easy finish. A tasty way to kick back and melt away.

Plum Island Belgian White: An unfiltered witbier with hints of citrus & coriander. This "partly cloudy" ale features slight citrus and spicy aromas complemented by mild sweet pilsner and wheat malt tastes. Our friends in Belgium would be proud of us.

Green Head IPA: An assertive and hoppy west coast-style India Pale Ale. Bright hop aromas and flavors fade to a brief, smooth malt undertone and a clean, crisp, slightly bitter finish. This beer is brewed to bite you back!
