What is a Beer Distributor?

Beer distributors are the middle tier of a three-tier distribution system. They are the business men and women who purchase beer from brewers, deliver it to retailers and provide important sales supports including advertising, promotion and merchandising.

Missouri's beer distributors are part of a proud tradition of family-owned and independently managed small businesses forming the backbone of Missouri's economy.

Missouri's beer distributors care how their businesses affect the community. They play a critical role in educating the public about the problems of drunk driving, alcohol abuse and illegal underage purchase and consumption of alcohol.
