Karl Strauss Announces Distribution Agreement with Bay City Brewing

Karl Strauss Brewing Company, San Diego’s longest continuously operating post-Prohibition brewing company, has entered into a distribution agreement with Bay City Brewing Company. Karl Strauss Chief Operating Officer Chad Heath made the announcement.

Karl Strauss Distributing (KSD) is now bringing Bay City beer off premises throughout San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties. Four beers are being distributed: Fiesta Island Pils, Jucci Gang Hazy Double IPA, Peninsula Amber Lager, and Ron Murkundy Hazy IPA.

The selections are available in restaurants, bars, and retail outlets. They are also available in San Diego grocery stores, including Total Wine & More.

“Karl Strauss Distributing was created to partner with revered San Diego breweries exactly like Bay City Brewing, which is why we are thrilled to bring them on as one of our distribution partners,” Heath said. “We look forward to bringing Bay City’s impressive lineup of beers to new consumers across Southern California and supporting the growth of another San Diego craft brewery.”

Launched in 2018, KSD utilizes its extensive network to catalyze growth for partner brands that share an affinity for quality craft beer. Other local craft breweries with distribution agreements include BLACK PLAGUE Brewing, WestBrew, and Booze Brothers Brewing Company.

“This partnership with Karl Strauss Distributing marks a significant new chapter for Bay City Brewing,” said Bay City Co-Owner Chad Robley. “Their exceptional network and deep roots in the San Diego beer scene provide a strong platform for us to expand our distribution and introduce our craft beers to enthusiasts across Southern California. We are proud to align with a distributor that truly understands the craft and culture of our city, and we are excited to continue our trajectory of growth together.”

Founded in the Point Loma community of San Diego in 2015 by Greg Anderson and Benjamin Dubois, Bay City produces over a dozen craft beers, including seasonal options. In 2020, Bay City opened its Downtown – East Village location, featuring a tasting room plus a rooftop bar which commands panoramic views of the San Diego skyline. Bay City was recognized by San Diego Business Journal in 2023 as one of San Diego’s Top-5 fastest-growing private companies.
