Here is a link to the application for for registering beer brands As you can see on the form, there is a fee of $75 for each "beer brand". They define a "brand" as an individual beer style. No big deal if you are Miller/Coors/Bud, but a real hassle if you are a micro with a couple of dozen seasonal beers. Note that you also must list the "importing ...
It doesn't even show on the belgian (dutch/french) pages of the site, My best guess is that it's just an alternate cover.
DUVEL - mastery in beer
It seems they used these different covers as a marketing trick designed to generate publicity and hype as it clearly did here
I'd say it comes down to three things.
Breweries in most states are restricted by the three-tier system which divides the brewing industry into three categories:
A few states allow the producer to engage in self-distribution (usually to a limited degree) but most require that a brewery get ...
Check out BeerTrade. It's not specifically limited to swapping between countries, but there is no reason you couldn't organize something there. There are about 10,000 people watching that subreddit currently.
Having owned and run a winery for 15 years (as well as making the wine, it was a small operation), you should concentrate on Sales, Marketing and Distribution about 90% of your effort. You could bottle paint thinner and with the right sales team and marketing you could make tons of money. I've seen it in the wine industry many times. People will say "if you ...
Since I don't know which EU country you're referring to, here are some of my picks that ship to Sweden.
Some businesses (brew pubs and brewery taps for example) produce their own so don't have to buy it. Most businesses (pubs, bars, restuarants etc.) order from a wholesaler or cash-and-carry in the same way that they order pretty much everything else, or they may order direct from the brewery or an distributors. The prices are wholesale price so cheaper than ...
This depends on a few things (mostly the location & regulations associated with). Sometimes breweries will be able to sell directly to liquor stores, pubs and so on, they may also have to go through a liquor distribution board (LDB). (And as breweries expand it is most defiantly worth it to go through a LDB or other distributor, as you can't be making ...
I can recommend www.alesbymail.co.uk I used them at Christmas 2014 to send a mixed case (chosen by myself) to my family in France. Can't remember exact European delivery costs but it was very reasonable compared to the cost of the beers or I wouldn't have used it. Check their Twitter @alesbymail for regular discount codes. (I have no affiliation with them ...
www.beersofeurope.co.uk are very good, used them 4 times.
www.beersofeurope.co.uk/usa lists a number of beers, just a case of scrolling through and selecting into the cart/basket.
Delivery is £7.50 but I find it's worth paying a bit extra to get what you want / try new beers.
Okocim Beer is part of the Carlsberg group. According to Carlsbergs site it looks like they are distributed in the USA by St. Killian.
St. Killian has a beer finder page that lets you search for bars, resturants, or stores that sell particular products by zip code. When typing in the zip code for State College, Pennsylvania, I'm not sure where you are ...

Liefmans Fruitesse from The Gull Liquor Store!

North Vancouver, BC
There's lots of possible reason
Some beers don't taste the same after the pasteurization required for shipping commercially, so only local or limited run would work.
The area you're in may not be their target demographic/flavor profile.
They may just not have a distributor in your area or know if people want it.
They may not be a well known enough brand to ...
I also live in PA and am equally baffled by the PALCB regulations. If I had a dime for every time an out of stater asked me where they could buy alcohol, I could buy a brewery.
My guess would be the local beer you tried just hasn't gotten to registering in PA.
As far as opinions and rules on what beers can and can't be sold in PA, I'd think there are no ...
In Belgium, you have the breweries itself that distribute their beer.
They have a large collection of different beers (and even soda, cola,..).
When you open a pub, you can choose to buy directly from the brewery. You will have lower prices and you have to possibility to get parasols, cards, logo's, chairs, tables, ... with the logo of one of their beers.
