Bell's Brewery, the US's seventh largest craft beer producer, is expanding its distribution footprint in southern California.

The Michigan-based firm said today its beers will be made available in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura from 23 February, through the Craft Brewer’s Guild of Los Angeles. The move builds on previous launches in Imperial and San Diego counties.

All of Bell’s brands will be available according to their release schedules, except for Oberon, which is available year-round in southern California, the company said.

“We are constantly addressing capacity constraints and building on last May’s initial launch in San Diego, along with growth at our Comstock Brewery, we are able to gradually increase distribution,” said Bell’s VP, Laura Bell.

The company, which was established in 1985, has distribution across 20 states.
