2017 revenue: $105 million E
Summit Distributing’s agreement with Schlafly to distribute its beer in St. Louis and surrounding counties helped the company boost revenue last year.
The deal was announced in July and filled a void for Summit, said President and COO Kim Barrow. “It was a big deal for us because there is a lot of interest in local craft beers, and we were missing one,” he said. “It made our whole portfolio stronger, and we added people because of the deal.”
