NEW YORK, March 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tilray Brands, Inc. (“Tilray Brands” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ | TSX: TLRY), today announced the northeast expansion of Montauk Brewing Company (“Montauk Brewing”), the #1 and fastest growing craft brewer in Metro New York1. Best known for its beloved product portfolio of craft brews, including the best seller Wave Chaser, Montauk Brewing is now available in over 3,500 points of distribution, across New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Rhode Island including top national retailers: Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Stop & Shop, King Kullen, Walmart, Wegman’s, Total Wine, 7-Eleven, Costco, BJ’s, and Speedway.
Ty Gilmore, President, U.S. Beer at Tilray Brands, said, "Growing Montauk Brewing’s distribution across the northeast in New York and New Jersey and expanding into new states including Connecticut, and Rhode Island was a strategic first step in our expansion plan. Montauk Brewing has enormous potential to grow into a true national brand and we will continue to leverage our existing nationwide infrastructure to expand the brand’s distribution and growth through innovation for all channels and consumers, building a diversified portfolio while giving our fans what they want.”
In 2022, Montauk Brewing Company expanded its portfolio of products to include 19.2oz cans and launched Ocean Series, a higher-end six-pack. This year, in addition to its well-loved seasonal classics, Montauk Brewing Company is further expanding with opportunity styles and larger case sizes that have proven to win on a smaller scale, meeting industry trends and consumer needs.
