Matthew Ostrander, Chief Cider Curator at Ibantik Craft Beverages is on a mission to grow the craft cider scene at Utah bars & restaurants. One of the fastest growing categories in the adult beverage sector, craft cider has grown explosively in other regions of the US, and the trend is on the verge of coming to Utah establishments. That’s where we come in as an independent and licensed agent in the State of Utah to bring in cider brands as an industry rep.
We’re working with regional and national cider producers to build a diverse portfolio of hard cider brands and seasonal varieties that can be special ordered via the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (DABC) for on premise alcohol sales.
As a Utah licensed brokerage and manufacturers rep, Ibantik Craft Beverages helps out of state cideries looking to expand their distribution by helping cider brands navigate the complex Utah state alcohol laws and submits paperwork to the DABC to enable Utah restaurants & bars to special order craft cider by the case (cans, bottles and large format 750ml) and by kegs for draft cider for on-premise or personal consumption.
We consult with Utah restaurant owners and bar managers to develop a cider program within year round and seasonal menus. We are interested in partnering you to host special tasting events, cider education classes and training for servers and bartenders.
