Big news for Hydro Flask fans today — we’ve partnered up with the beer and wine industry stalwarts Chrislan Ceramics! This is a great partnership for us and one we’re very excited about. Chrislan has been in the brewery and wine markets for over 25 years and is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of custom tap handles for the on tap beer industry. The company will become the exclusive distributor of Hydro Flask growlers and flasks to the beer and wine markets, and promote the Hydro Flask line alongside its custom tap handles and Rastal glassware.
The partnership brings together a well respected industry veteran in Chrislan with the rapidly growing youthful company Hydro Flask, who is quickly becoming known in the outdoor, beer, coffee and tea, golf and natural food markets as the leader in high-performance, insulated steel flasks.
Chrislan co-founder Al Laninga expressed excitement about the newly formed partnership. “The growler is a premium product that is certain to be a hit in the tap beer market. Made from food grade 18/8 stainless steel, it is BPA-free, durable, sweat proof, reusable and insulated for up to 24 hours cold and up to 12 hours hot. All the growlers come with a lifetime warranty, and we are proud to be partnering with Hydro Flask.”
Likewise, Hydro Flask CEO Scott Allan was all smiles. “We could not be more pleased to have found a trusted brewing industry partner like Chrislan. They provide an exceptional product and will create great momentum with breweries and our consumers. Partnering with a respected, long time industry player like Chrislan represents a tremendous milestone for Hydro Flask, and we are certain that this partnership will lead to greater market penetration.”
Hydro Flask and Chrislan will both be at the upcoming Craft Brewers Conference in Washington D.C. next week. The conference kicks off on Tuesday and runs through Friday. Both companies will have booths at the show and Chrislan is a main sponsor of the show.
