WHAT: Launch of Beach Haus® Classic American Pilsner in Camden and Gloucester Counties
WHERE: Retailers in Camden and Gloucester Counties
Since 1943 and for the last three generations, the Konrad family business has been the distributor for Camden and Gloucester counties. Starting out as Laurel Beverage and changing its name to Konrad Beer Distributors in 1967, Herb Konrad, Sr. and Herb Konrad, Jr. have been serving these counties, focusing on carrying a large, diverse portfolio of beers for niche markets. Although the company doesn’t carry every style of every brand, it tends to carry the unique, high-quality products that offer more than just a brand, but a partnership with the company.
Konrad is keying off Beach Haus® Classic American Pilsner concentrating on being a pit-stop between Philadelphia and the Jersey Shore, boasting ‘you don’t have to be at the shore to enjoy it.’
“They [Brian and John] are absolutely great,” said Herb Konrad, Jr. “Their energy level is unbelievable so far and they have done a great job with their brand, while also being a good partner.”
Aspiring to become a staple of the Jersey Shore, two local guys are realizing their dream, fueling their love of craft beer and the Jersey Shore. It’s in the Haus!
