We partner with top national and international brewers and brands to provide the highest quality product to our customers. We are constantly growing and expanding our portfolio in order to provide the best possible selection to our accounts. But what part do we play in selling beer? The three-tier system is the legally mandated structure every business in the United States must follow when they sell any kind of alcohol. In this system, the brewers or suppliers (Tier 1) sell to licensed distributors or wholesalers (Tier 2 – that's us) who then sell to licensed outlets such as bars, liquor stores, grocery stores or restaurants (Tier 3) who in turn responsibly sell to the consumer. This system provides 'checks and balances' to distribute the power between the tiers and restricts the creation of monopolies.
