The Great Artisan Beverage Company says Summit and Fun Beverage, both in Montana, are the latest members of its distribution network. The move will add the Butte, Missoula and Kalispell regions to the GAB footprint.
Summit Beverage, headquartered in Missoula, Montana began in 1968 as Roach & Smith and has since transformed over the years into a successful distributor; a family owned business, with the third generation stepping in. GAB says the Summit business is built on the foundations of quality relationships with customers, suppliers and their employees.
Fun Beverage, Inc. based in Kalispell, Montana, the gateway to Glacier National Park, has served Northwest Montana for over 32 years. Today, Fun Beverage has grown to be the largest locally owned, independent, beer, wine and non-alcohol distributor serving the communities of Northwest Montana including Whitefish, Eureka, Libby and Glacier National Park. “Our mission is to be the beverage distribution expert providing superior sales, service, distribution and portfolio management to both our Retail and Supplier customers.” Brian Clark -President and Chief Operating Officer
