About Shelton Brothers
Who are you guys? We’re just three brothers and some like minded friends, who share a passion for well-crafted beers and an interest in traditional beer styles. We’ve all done a little brewing on the side. Mainly, we like drinking beer.
What are you doing here? People always ask how we ended up importing beer for a living. Like any good job, this one started with the dedicated pursuit of a cherished hobby: scaring up and throwing down the best beers in whatever part of the world we happened to be in. Between us, we’ve hunted undiscovered beers on every continent (save Antarctica) and bagged thousands of ‘em. It was brother Joel who first stumbled on the Cantillon Brewery in Brussels, where the beer is fermented with wild yeast borne on the open air. He became fast friends with the brewer and his family, and brought great quantities of their incredible lambic beer back home for the rest of us to enjoy. When we couldn’t find Cantillon in any stores here, we were forced to import it ourselves. The rest is rather boring history.
Why beer? Simply, beer is what we care about. We love wine & spirits, sure, we will start importing some of it very soon. But the world of beer is a lot broader, infinitely more diverse, and more colorful than the world of wine. And we hope that when the dust settles, you agree that beer and beer appreciation deserve the highest respect. About this, we’re perfectly serious: a good beer offers all the complexity, interest, and sheer sensual pleasure of a good wine. It just doesn’t cost as much. But then again, it’s only beer.
