There are so many craft beer breweries on the market, but not too many stand out like Fireman’s Brew, a Los Angeles-based craft beer company founded by two firefighters, after putting out a brushfire high above the Glendale Mountains.
“It has been an amazing year of growth and achievement for Fireman’s Brew, Inc.,” said Rob Nowaczyk, founder of Fireman’s Brew. “Over the last six months, we’ve successfully launched Fireman’s Brew into Nebraska, Nevada and Rhode Island.
The rapidly growing brewery is expanding its distribution footprint across the country into three new states: Virginia, Iowa and Oklahoma. Through newly signed distribution agreements with Virginia Imports (VA), L&L Distributing (IA) and Quality Beverage (OK), Fireman’s Brew award-winning beers will soon be available at on-premise and off-premise locations throughout each state.
This news follows on the heels of the company’s successful rollout into six new states including: Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Illinois, Nebraska and Rhode Island over the past nine months.
“Now with these new states, we’re continuing towards our goal of developing Fireman’s Brew into a national brand,” said Nowaczyk.
Fireman’s Brew recently took home top honors at the 2013 San Diego International Beer Competition, earning a Gold Medal Ribbon for its signature Brunette (Doublebock) in the German-Style Bock category and a Silver Medal Ribbon for its Blonde (Pilsner-Style Lager) in the American-Style Lager category.
Fireman’s Brew, Inc. is a California corporation, that produces and distributes a premium line of Fireman’s Brew branded beers, coffee, and soft drinks that are currently sold in locations throughout California, Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, and Nebraska.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to team up with our new distribution partners and connect with craft beer enthusiasts in each of these new markets,” Nowaczyk.

Nowacsyk said, their thirst for beer and coffee after that exhausting day (in 2000), launched them into developing a vision and hero’s brand of products that every American could relate to.
