DeCrescente Launches Partnership with Fiddlehead Brewing



DeCrescente Distributing Company (DDC) is proud to announce a partnership to distribute Fiddlehead Brewing Company of Shelburne, VT. For the first time Fiddlehead will be available in New York State beginning on February 19th. The two companies kicked off their relationship when Fiddlehead Owner/Brewmaster Matt Cohen came to New York to lead an educational brewing session on DDC’s in-house brewing system on January 25.

The mission at Fiddlehead is to produce full flavored beers with the true beer connoisseur in mind. They focus on depth of flavor, freshness of ingredients, and incorporating local products when possible. Renowned brew master and owner, known industry wide as Matty O, is on a continual quest to craft the perfect pint. While several seasonal selections are always available on tap at the brewery, the flagship beer- the Fiddlehead IPA, can be found on draft lines all over Vermont and soon to be in New York.  Fiddlehead is especially known for limited release specialty canned brews that sell out quickly.

Owner and Brewmaster Matt Cohen said, “We are excited!  We are looking forward to bringing our beer to the Capital District with our DeCrescente partnership.”  Beginning February 19, Fiddlehead IPA will be available at many locations throughout the region; a full list will be available as of February 20th at www.gotbeer.com/beer-finder.  “We’re very proud to bring in a great quality partner like Fiddlehead to the Capital Region,” said DDC General Manager, Russ Teplitzky.  “This truly is an exciting addition to our craft beer portfolio and we’re looking forward to working with Matt and the team.”
