In response to a booming craft beer market and surging demand for their distinctive brews, Lonerider Brewing Companyis expanding distribution to Maryland, DC, Tennessee and Virginia over the next two months.

All of Lonerider's signature beers, including Shotgun Betty Hefeweizen, Sweet Josie Brown Ale, Peacemaker Pale Ale and their Outlawed seasonal beers, will be available at select bars and grocery stores in these locations.

"Beer is one of the ultimate passions, and the enthusiasm our fans have for our craft beers has been overwhelming," said Sumit Vohra, Lonerider CEO and Chief Drinking Officer. "This opportunity to expand our distribution to a new band of 'outlaws' is both exciting and why we do what we do daily, which is brew craft beers with the highest quality ingredients."
