A taste of Tucson will soon be available in bars, bodegas and restaurants across New York City.
Nimbus Brewing Company is in final negotiations with Garal Wholesalers LTD, a distribution company based out of West Babylon, New York, on a deal that will put its beer in all five boroughs of the Big Apple, as well as on Long Island.
"It is exciting for us to be available in such a concentrated area of 18 million people," Nimbus owner Jim Counts said. "We are confident that we will do well."
Counts said Nimbus caught the attention of distributors after taking home the "Arizona Brewery of the Year" honor in 2013 at the New York International Beer Competition.
All six Nimbus standards, including its oatmeal stout and "Dirty Guera" Southwestern-style blonde ale, will be shipped, he added.
Nimbus already delivers to several states beyond Arizona's borders, including California, New Mexico, Georgia and South Carolina.
