Lucid Brewing LLC, of Minnetonka, has signed a distribution agreement with Original Gravity, a network of locally-owned craft distributors to bring their beer portfolio to the Twin Cities and surrounding suburban market.

On and off premise retailers in the state of Minnesota are now able to order and serve Lucid Brewing Company’s draft and bottled beer selections.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Original Gravity for distribution,” said Lucid co-owner Jon Messier. “Together, we’re ready to grow the Minnesota craft beer scene and to continue to create new options for beer lovers in and around the Twin Cities.”

"We have had a lot of interest in Lucid Brewing and so have our customers," said Original Gravity's Hans "Hanszee" Lofgren. "We are extremely happy to be adding a local brand to our craft beer portfolio."

Distribution, which began this spring with Thorpe Distributors, has grown significantly with the signing of the additional Original Gravity distribution group members, Capitol Beverage, C&L Distributors and College City Distribution. The total coverage for distribution now extends from St. Cloud and Brainerd Lakes, to Stillwater and as far south as Owatonna.
