Elk Rapids, Mich. – Starcut Ciders and Beaches Hard Seltzer, two separate divisions of Short’s Brewing Company, are now available in Tennessee for purchase. Distributed by Tennessee Craft Distributors (TCD) out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, this is the ninth state to receive shipments of these Northern Michigan brands.
“We started as beer distributors, and have been continually impressed with the creativity of the next generation of craft beverages. We’re excited to bring Starcut and Beaches to the Nashville market and believe the brands align with our ethos of growing brands, retailers, and relationships by delivering liquid art.” Says Ed Muranyi, owner and head beer dude of TCD.
Starcut Cider was originally introduced at Short’s pub in late 2014. Starcut Ciders was born out of a passion to create high quality and innovative hard cider that focused on the flavor produced by real ingredients. It is brewed with apples from their home state of Michigan without backsweetening, so any sweetness comes directly from the apples. Short’s began distribution of this new division in 2015.
Starcut Ciders will begin distribution with three flagship varieties; Octorock, a semi-sweet hard cider, Pulsar, a dry hard cider, and M osa, a mimosa inspired cider, and a variety pack that features the three flagships, plus one rotating seasonal flavor.
Beaches Hard Seltzer was introduced in October of 2019. The brewery approached making hard seltzer with a focus on manipulating ingredients and the process, producing something unique that pushes the flavors and boundaries of the category with their cocktail-inspired variety pack, which includes mojito, margarita, paloma, and piña colada hard seltzers.
