Bringing American craft beer to the world


AMERICAN craft beer, EXPORTED 

We at QI Brews are craft beer lovers.  While traveling and living in Asia most of our adult lives, we discovered that a handful of American beers can be found almost anywhere in the world, but most of the really good ones are usually only stocked within a few timezones from where they were made. On behalf of our fellow drinkers asking for nothing more than a taste of home, we decided to change that.  There is a tremendous global opportunity for brewers, as the craft + artisanal boom has spread to international markets, and we are proud to bring the finest local beers  to the world.

asia

Home of a massive craft beer fanbase, we have distribution partners throughout Asia with access to 5,000+ establishments and numerous brewpubs.  A large international population demanding the finest products and strong local economies also contribute to the local beer knowledge and desire for the latest and greatest craft beers.

latin america

A major port, a strong, young economy, and a large expat community make Latin America an ideal market for craft brewers and distillers.  Our partners here service local drinking and dining establishments, bottle shops, as well as cruise ships.

europe

Birthplace of modern brewing, Europe's love affair with quality beer and spirits spans for ages.  A recent surge in local craft breweries and distilleries combined with beer and spirit fans that want to taste the best that America has to offer and experience the timeless flavors that come as a result of our superior local ingredient quality.

There is a thriving craft-beer and spirit movement taking place beyond the US borders, with beer clubs, craft breweries, brewpubs, and a burgeoning home brewing scene fueling the fire like never before.  A strong middle class that demands the new, the interesting, and the unique, as well a consumer preference towards products with a compelling story and unique brand identity provide the basis for this remarkable shift in consumer demand, where US craft brewers and distillers have the opportunity of a lifetime to grow beyond current borders.

Here at QI Brews, we serve not only as a trusted EMC for your brand, but also a partner in seeing that the market understands... and demands, your product.   We focus on creating awareness to our import partners and their accounts as to what makes US craft beer and spirits unique, and the local flavors that go into every drop.  We love craft beer and spirits just as much as you do, and we want to help spread this passion to the world.  Drop us a line and we can show you how our markets can benefit your business and get your beer and spirits into the hands of craft lovers around the world.
