Why We Started Distributing Craft Beverages

Stone Distributing (SDC) was founded in the spirit of craft camaraderie. When no distributor in the late 90s would accept Stone Brewing's hop-forward beers, the brewery decided to self-distribute and brought along other specialty and craft brands for the ride. Since 1999, we have made a conscious choice to Build It to Last, striving to leave a legacy built upon sustainable growth to carry us forward. Because of SDC's ability to Lead & Disrupt we are now among the largest independent distributors of craft beverages in the country. Our culture of Doing the Right Thing ensures we work with integrity and prioritize safety at every turn. We are known for our ability to Drive Real Relationships with a diverse portfolio and best in class in service and partnerships.
