Fort Collins, CO- Fort Collins Brewery is proud to announce Elite Brands as the company’s new beer distributor for Colorado.  With over thirty years experience in the industry, the partnership will allow for better service and expansion into more stores.

Elite Brands of Colorado was established in 2000 with the mission of bringing fine wines and craft beers to the residents of Colorado.

Elite’s President, Terry Cekola, grew up in the wine and sprits distribution industry and is proud to continue in her family’s footsteps.  “I love that it is my job to help a third-generation family vineyard get to the table,” she says.

Her father founded Michigan-based Imperial Beverage in 1984 and has helped the company grow into three distinct and individual companies.

Elite Brands of Colorado is one of the sister companies to the Michigan-based companies, all of which are run by Terry’s brothers.

The new partnership will allow for better service because of the hands on approach taken by Elite and their commitment to the client and consumer. “FCB is excited to be the one and only Colorado beer represented by Elite Brands of Colorado” says Sales Manager Fred Winther.

Elite Brands has a strong history and a reputable name that will ensure that FCB will maintain the quality of their beer from the brew house to the table.  Elite Brands makes daily deliveries in reliable refrigerated trucks to sustain the quality of its contents.

By partnering with Elite Brands, FCB will broaden their cliental base by expanding into more stores across the state.
