450 North Brewing Co.

The idea of a farmhouse brewery often conjures up thoughts of rustic ales, spontaneously fermented concoctions, and tranquil yet complex recipes that force the drinker to slow down a bit and consider what’s in the glass and beer’s place in the world. However, this is 2019, and the old rules of beer no longer apply.

“The way that we’ve built our brand in the past few years has led us to being sought out by traders,” says McKinley Minniefield, director of sales and general jack-of-many-trades for 450 North Brewing Company (Columbus, Indiana). “They are an important part of where we see ourselves in the future. My personal belief is that is where the industry is going. The three-tiered system has pigeon-holed some craft brewers, and I think trading is sticking it to The Man and lets people do the beer promotion for us. Of course, we need to keep making a quality product so that people want to keep drinking it.”

 We are a craft-distribution and importing company built on the passion for the product we sell.  Inspired by the liquid in the bottle, we have scoured the US and beyond to find, what we believe, to be the best beer, cider and mead available in the world.  We go to great lengths to then get these liquids to the customer in the best possible condition.  Our suppliers work hard to make a world class product and we’re dedicated to treating them with the respect they deserve.

We do not carry multinational macro-lagers or “utility” beers

We do not carry beer brewed with adjuncts used to reduce flavor and body.

We are not in the business of “moving boxes”
