Wolf’s Ridge Brewing, a Columbus-based brewery, announced its expansion into Northeast Ohio April 18, with distribution partner House of La Rose Inc.
House of La Rose Inc., a family owned and operated business, has served the Northeast Ohio beer market since 1939 with over 5,000 retail customers in nine counties, according to a news release. Wolf’s Ridge Brewing is in more than 150 grocery, bar and restaurant locations in Northeast Ohio, and the company has seen an 8% annual growth since entering the market in 2021. It hopes to continue those successes, expanding into Cuyahoga, Medina, Lake, Geauga, Summit, Stark, Portage, Ashtabula and Wayne counties with the partnership, the release said.
“After a few successful years introducing our beers into the Northeast Ohio market, we are extremely excited to be partnering with the House of LaRose to continue building on our early success,” Bob Szuter, co-owner of Wolf’s Ridge Brewing, said in the release. “We’ve seen a lot of interest and excitement around our products in this market and can’t wait to continue to share our passion with all of the amazing customers in the area. House of LaRose is a fantastic distributor, and we believe they will be a tremendous partner with us going forward.”
