March 11: St. Louis and Kansas City beer-lovers can now enjoy a taste of the West Coast with Los Angeles craft brewery The Dudes’ Brewing Company now being sold in local markets through a contract with Major Brands.

The types of brews coming to the Midwest are: Double Trunk (double IPA), Grandma’s Pecan (Midwest-inspired Brown Ale) and Southbay Session (American IPA). The beers are now available at Craft Beer Cellar, Friar Tuck Beverage, Lukas Liquor Superstore, Randall’s Wine & Spirits and select Schnucks locations.
