In 2020, the company grew almost 500% year-over-year for the second year in a row.
In its third year of operation, the company has outgrown the 12,000 barrel capacity of its brewery headquartered in Connecticut and expanded its capacity by adding 125,000 barrels in its new San Diego facility.
"Not only are we changing people’s impressions of non-alcoholic beer," said Athletic Co-founder Bill Shufelt, "but we are opening up new occasions for beer, and most importantly taking non-alcoholic beers out of the penalty box.”
In keeping with its healthy philosophy, the maker of non-alcoholic beer donates 2% of all sales to a selected trail or park as part of its “Two for the Trails” initiative. “We’re hoping to donate a six-figure sum this year," says co-founder Bill Shufelt.
The San Diego facility will need renovations to accommodate Athletic’s proprietary recipes and processes and is expected to restart production in mid-May.
The company's Upside Dawn Golden Ale and Run Wild IPA nonalcoholic offerings were only available at the brewer's taproom in Stratford.
