Milwaukee Craft Beverage Warehouse to Expand


MILWAUKEE, WI – Craft Beverage Warehouse LLC will expand its presence at Century City Business Park to continue distributing craft beverage packaging products, according to a press release.

The company will now occupy 9,000 square feet in the Century City 1 building. CBW currently employs three people, but some new employment opportunities are possible with the expansion.

Kyle Stephens, co-founder of CBW, is also vice president of finance and administration at Good City Brewing. However, Stephens will be leaving this role at Good City Brewing to focus on CBW.

“Kyle is a great member of the team and has been an integral part of Good City for several years, but as I know firsthand, when you have the will to take on something new there is no looking back ”, Co-Founder of Good City Brewing Says Dan Katt.

Stephens co-founded CBW at the start of the pandemic to address emerging issues in the distribution of craft drinks. Lockdown meant more bars. No more bars, no more kegs, fountains or taps. Beverage producers had to quickly switch to bottles and cans for their thirsty customers.

Acquiring all the materials needed for this change, however, was easier said than done. Small and medium-sized craft beverage companies had to compete with national companies.

More importantly, small businesses could only buy large amounts of packaging supplies, more than they actually needed, according to the CBW website.

Craft Beverage Warehouse was founded to ease the hardships of small businesses by making packaging supplies more accessible.

Craft beverage companies can order smaller amounts of packaging supplies from CBW just what they need, freeing up their money for other expenses.

Since its inception a year ago, CBW has expanded its market to almost all of the United States.

According to the press release, CBW’s Century City Business Park site occupied manufacturing space previously occupied by names such as AO Smith and Tower Automotive.

“We have only been a company for a year and we are committed to developing this activity in the
Century City Business Park while continuing to support the local community, ”Stephens said.
