18 Jun Crafthouse Cocktails are now in Ohio and other big news
It’s been a crazy busy month for us. After mulling over a few different states to expand to, we decided to head east and bring our all natural cocktails to Ohio. Our co-founder, Matt Lindner, went to school in Ohio and has spent a lot of time in Columbus and Cleveland. Both of those cities have similar qualities to Chicago and the people there really love a good cocktail.
We could not be more excited about this expansion and have been adding new stores every day. Click on our “Where to Buy” link at the top of this page to search for a location near you. Currently we are at Heinen’s, Whole Foods and a bunch of great specialty wine and liquor stores.
We also have partnered with Cris Delhavi, the President of the United States Bartender Guild’s (USBG) southern Ohio chapter to work with us as a brand ambassador. She shares our vision of providing balanced, authentic cocktails to customers.
Finally, it was a huge month for our founder Charles Joly. On June 16 and 17 he competed at the USBG World Class competition to determine the U.S. bartender of the year for 2014. Out of a field of 15 strong finalists, Charles finished first and will go on to represent the United States at the world finals in England in July. Way to go Charles!
