At Harlem Beer Distributing, one taste does not fit all. We seek to bring extraordinary beers with empowering stories directly to those who want it. We’re dedicated to offering great beverages that reflect the flavor and uniqueness of the craft and communities that inspire them.
Our story began more than 20 years ago, when word spread about a beer from Harlem. Starting with small batch home brews, our flagship Harlem Sugar Hill Golden Ale and Harlem Renaissance Wit were instant hits! From its launch at the Studio Museum in Harlem and early partnerships with Sylvia’s Restaurant and the Apollo Theater, Harlem Brewing has always brewed it forward, supporting countless charities and community organizations. Over the years, calls and IGs from beer lovers across the country and around the world poured in asking where they could find the beers. Yet few distributors understood the craft beer revolution or how to cultivate the diverse consumer market.
These days, commercials aren’t driving brand awareness, grassroots marketing and social media are. We're proud of the many long standing partnerships that helped sustain our growth both online or on-premise. Over the years, many independent craft beverage suppliers called for advice on how to brew, register, distribute and market their brands. Harlem Beer Distributing and our team of experts in manufacturing, distribution, sales and marketing was the answer. We offer competitive prices, great values, and consistent inventory. We strive to compete favorably and professionally and pride ourselves on continuous growth and excellent service!

Nucleated Pint Glass with HB láser etching inside bottom of glass.
The HB laser etched “nucleated” glass provides a great sensory experience. When beer is poured onto the etched bottom, this creates more bubbles that last longer and therefore produces a more stable head.
