JACKSON – Family owned distributor Anderson Distributing Co. is partnering with Jackson’s landmark craft brewer, the Local Pub & Brewery, to bring exciting new beers to stores across Mid‐Michigan.   “We’re really excited at Anderson Distributing to support a local Jackson brewer who’s making great beers and we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and work hard to help Local Pub & Brewery succeed,” said Steve Anderson Sr., president of Anderson Distributing, which has served the community since 1958. “Anderson Distributing strongly believes in supporting our community and local businesses. Local Pub & Brewery makes terrific products and we want to help get those products to new markets to showcase the tremendous range of Michigan‐made choices available to consumers when it comes to beer.” “Our brewery is happy to be working with Anderson Distributing and we foresee a great partnership going forward,” said Phil Wilcox, founder of Local Pub & Brewery. “As a new business, Local Pub & Brewery wants to make sure that we can focus on making the best beers around, and Anderson Distributing can focus on getting those beers to stores. Anderson has an extensive network, a fleet of trucks and salespeople and more than a half‐century of experience distributing quality products and services. This partnership is a win‐win for both our businesses.” Anderson will begin distributing Local Pub & Brewery products to retailers, restaurants, bars and taverns in Jackson, Branch, Hillsdale and Lenawee counties starting in late August.   Local Pub & Brewery is the only craft brewer currently operating in Jackson County. It is located at 6020 Ann Arbor Road, off the Sargent Road exit on I‐94. The brewery opened in early 2011, after renovating a long‐vacant building. The Local Pub & Brewery makes the lightning kolsch north German style beer;  the Lucky Penny Alt, an old‐style beer; the E.H. Pilsner, a classic American pilsner inspired by two pre‐ Prohibition‐era Jackson breweries; the JaXon IPA, which is based on a national award‐winning recipe; the crisp Cork County Irish Stout; the Yellow Dog Bit‐her, a traditional British ale; and the Mulligan Wheat, a spice‐tinted ale.     Anderson Distributing was established in 1958 in Jackson and today is a third‐generation family business. Anderson employs 35 people in good‐paying jobs with benefits. It carries more than 500 brands of beers and wines, reflecting its commitment to deliver wide choice and selection to Mid‐ Michigan. Anderson is also active in the community, supporting local charity, community and public safety programs.
