TRVE Brewing Announces Distribution Partnership with Our Mutual Friend
November 8th, 2017 - Our Mutual Friend Brewing of Denver, CO has partnered with TRVE Brewing’s distribution arm for distribution of their beer along the Front Range.
Our Mutual Friend has recently grown its infrastructure and capacity, including the addition of three new foeders in order to increase the production of some of their award-winning mixed culture and brett beers. They will be ramping up production of these as well as their stainless fermented ales to bring their beers to both on- and off-premise accounts in Denver and the surrounding area. The agreement will mark the first time OMF beer is significantly available outside their own taproom.
TRVE Brewing has been self-distributing their own beer for two years, and for over a year has worked with out-of-state breweries such as Burial Beer Co. (Asheville, NC), Finback Brewery (Queens, NY), and 7venth Sun Brewery (Dunedin, FL) to import and distribute their beer on a limited basis. The agreement with OMF is their first established distribution partnership with a brewery based in Colorado.
“We’re incredibly excited to be working with OMF” says Nick Nunns, founder of TRVE Brewing. “We’ve worked with a number of breweries outside the state of Colorado. To now be working with one of our local friends is an exciting new opportunity for our distribution arm. We’ve known the guys and gals at OMF since they opened and have been watching them grow in a way much like we’ve grown our own brewery. The similarity in our approaches to beer makes this relationship a no brainer.”
“Over the last five years, we believe OMF has emerged as a brewery to watch in an ever growing and evolving beer scene,” says Brandon Proff, OMF managing partner. “Though we fully intend to remain a small brewery serving the North-East Denver community, it has become clear as we've built a friendship with TRVE that our vision and principles for how we desire to operate are aligned. Craft beer has become an increasing arms race, but we do not believe (nor have any interest) in fighting for shelf space. TRVE's resources and expertise will allow us to approach where our beer goes with agility and intention through their strong, meaningful relationships with businesses that care deeply and want know whose products they are selling. We look forward to the future of our new distribution partnership with TRVE, and can't wait to forge a path forward. Let's party.”
TRVE will begin limited distribution of OMF beer in mid-November, commencing with a celebration of stouts and porters hosted by Falling Rock Tap House on November 17th at 5:30pm.

ABOUT TRVE BREWING CO.
TRVE Brewing Co. was founded in the historic Baker neighborhood of Denver, Colorado on the summer solstice of 2012. Since its inception, TRVE has been a staple of the Denver brewing scene focusing on sessionable and crushable beers presented through the filter of a heavy metal aesthetic. TRVE has set itself apart from the typical experience found in the craft beer community with a wholly unique taproom, in which their original three barrel system resides. In the spring of 2015, TRVE began brewing at the Acid Temple – a ten barrel production facility dedicated to mixed-culture fermentation and experimentation.

ABOUT OUR MUTUAL FRIEND BREWING
Our Mutual Friend Brewing opened in December of 2012 with the goal of creating a place for community through their small neighborhood taproom in the up and coming River North (RiNo) neighborhood. Starting on a 31-gallon brew system, they worked tirelessly to understand the techniques and history of beer while looking forward to where craft beer was heading. Doing so influenced their vision to create beers with a sense of place, forging relationships with Colorado hop and barley growers, and has allowed them to offer as many 100% Colorado grown beers as possible. In 2015 they earned a silver medal in the wood and barrel aged sour category at the Great American Beer Festival for 24FPS, a 100% Colorado mixed-culture fermentation barrel-aged sour beer.
In 2017 OMF continued its organic growth on a seven-barrel brew system, increasing capacity to meet demand and offer traditional styles while still being afforded the opportunity for experimentation. 2016 and 2017 saw OMF receiving back to back silver medals at GABF in the brett beer category for Dreamy Thing (a collaboration with Cerebral Brewing) and Saison Trystero.
