DeCrescente Distributing Company (DDC) is proud to announce a partnership to distribute Wolf Hollow Brewing Company (WHBC) of West Glenville, NY. Beginning Tuesday July 6th, DDC will officially begin to distribute WHBC products across our 11-county territory.
“We are excited about the addition of Wolf Hollow Brewing Company to our portfolio,” said Russ Teplitzky, General Manager at DeCrescente Distributing Company. “Local partnerships are very important to us, and Wolf Hollow is all about local from their brewery to their ownership.”
Who is Wolf Hollow Brewing Co.
WHBC’s story began when Jordan White and Pete Bednarek, friends and hometown natives of West Glenville, were sharing homebrews on our porches with neighbors when the idea to start a brewery sparked. Early conversations with neighbors and friends led to the commitment of those who would become Founders who gave this community brewery its start back in November of 2013. The journey began with the brewery serving 4 styles of beer in growlers to-go out of a re-purposed Grange Hall in West Glenville.
One year after opening our doors, Jordan and Pete welcomed Bill Kenneally into the partnership as an owner. Bill brought fresh eyes and expertise as an attorney and he had a vision for the next location of WHBC. In July of 2015, WHBC relocated to the buildings and property at 6882 Amsterdam Road on a new 7BBL brew system. The following summer WHBC expanded their space yet again with the opening of the patio for outdoor seating and one summer later, WHBC doubled its brewing capacity by adding fermentation and cold storage space.
Wolf Hollow now carries 16 different beers all brewed on site with 10 mainstays, occasional cask ales and specialty products. Seven WHBC beers have won awards in NYS and some nation-wide competitions. Prior to DDC, Wolf Hollow self-distributed to approximately 130 on premise and independent retail accounts in 7 counties. DDC will expand their brand into our 11-county footprint to include chain supermarkets and convenience stores, as well as expand independent placements.
“Jordan and I are thrilled to join our small family of committed folks at Wolf Hollow with the DDC team,” said WHBC Owner, Pete Bednarek. “We believe our partnership together will spread and deepen the roots of Wolf Hollow beer and relationships in this region, which has been our goal since opening in 2013.”
The WHBC slogan is “Your Beer, Brewed Here,” meaning this beer is yours as much as it is Wolf Hollow’s, so enjoy a beer or two of Wolf Hollow on your porch with your friends and neighbors… you never know where those conversations could lead!
