Killian's Red expands to IL.

Killian's Red exands to IL

In response to growing consumer demand, Coors Brewing Co. recently expanded distribution of its specialty beer, George Killian's Irish Red, throughout Illinois.

"For the past two years, Killian's Red was available only in taverns and restaurants," said George Mansfield, Killian brand manager, Coors. "Recently, six-pack, 12-oz. bottles were available in retail stores. Illinois is a great Killian's market, and we think fans of `The Red' will be especially pleased to find the product available in the popular longneck bottles statewide."

Killian's is distributed in Illinois by Central Distributing; Wilhelmi Beverage Inc.; Louis Glunz Inc.; Coors Distributing of Illinois; Farneti Ltd.; B.B. Distributors Inc.; and Jack Donelson Sales Co.

"Killian's Red is truly `The O'ficial Beer of St. Patrick's Day," Mansfield added.
