Who We Work With


"How does a small startup craft beer producer survive in the craft beer market, an ultra-competitive and unpredictable market that offers few safe bets and demands a lot of up-front investment? For Druthers, our success began when we decided to partner with DeCrescente. Their close-knit team leverages their experience, relationships, and market insights to ensure that each supplier has the opportunity to thrive. We’ve worked together for 5 years and haven’t missed our distribution targets yet! "
Chris Martell
Owner, Druthers Brewing Company
"DeCrescente is the BEST-in-class distributor and is well known nationwide within the Talking Rain network! They have speed to market with display execution chain wide. Displays are set up well before the features are active. Their sales plan process on LTO items is the model example. Inventory is usually depleted within 2-4 weeks! All of the employees that we have had the pleasure of interacting with treat us not only as business partners, but as though we are part of the DeCrescente family!"
Frank Strange
Regional Sales Manager, Talking Rain
"DeCrescente Distributing understands and values our marketing and distribution strategy. Additionally, they share their market expertise and collaborate on projects to help increase sales. They have been a great partner across all departments in their organization and have taken our sales strategy and executed it throughout their distribution footprint. This has led to great growth year over year and helped to establish Fiddlehead as one of the top selling brands in the Capital Region. "
