The Royal Docks Brewing Company is set to launch distribution of its portfolio of core and seasonal products on draught and packaged in 12 oz. cans throughout Northeast and Central Ohio starting the week of May 8 through Heidelberg Distributing Company.

Heidelberg came highly recommended from our brewer friends at Brooklyn Brewery and Uinta and after long talks with several distributors about beer quality and strategy, I’m confident that we’ve found the right partner to take us to the next level.”
“We’re proud and excited…
