Uinta Brewing Company
Eyes 100,000 Barrels

Salt Lake City’s Uinta Brewing Company is headed for a milestone moment as the brewery looks to eclipse the 100,000 barrel threshold this year.

“We’re on a growth track for the high teens,” Uinta CEO Steve Mills told Brewbound during a recent interview.

Uinta, ranked as the 39th largest U.S. craft brewery by trade group the Brewers Association, has nearly doubled its production since 2012. Last year, the company sold 86,705 barrels of beer, up six percent over 2015.

Mills said the bulk of last year’s growth came in the second half of the year, and he credited at least part of it to a new management team, a restructuring of the company’s sales department and a rebranding effort.

“Everything has really started to click for us,” he said. Sales of Uinta products are up 10 percent in its largest market and home state of Utah, Mills said. But the company is also growing in other parts of the country, including the Pacific Northwest, Georgia, Minnesota, Colorado, Missouri and Arizona.

“We’re seeing positive signs from multiple parts of the country,” Uinta chief marketing officer Jeremy Ragonese told Brewbound. “It’s not just one geography or a Mountain West kind of thing.”

Cans, New Brands
Driving 20 Percent
Growth for
Dogfish Head

If you asked Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione, he’d tell you the reports of a craft beer slowdown have been greatly exaggerated.

Sales of Dogfish Head products are up 20 percent midway through 2017, Calagione told Brewbound during a recent interview.

Helping to drive that growth are the addition of two new year-round offerings — Flesh & Blood IPA and SeaQuench session sour ale — sales for which have already doubled the company’s initial projected volumes.

In a press release, Calagione said those two beers were the “fastest-growing year-round brands in the 22 year history of Dogfish Head,” comparing them to similar trends the company witnessed when it launched flagships 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPA.

“Both of these brands, along with the launch of 60 Minute IPA 12-pack cans are in the top 15 of new can SKUs launched in 2017,” Calagione said via the release. “In addition to the topline gains these brands are delivering for Dogfish and our distribution partners, we are achieving this growth as the #1 craft brewery revenue per CE [case equivalent] of the top 25 supplier according to IRI at $53.15.”
