ROSEMONT, IL – July 8, 2019. Harbor Distributing, L.L.C., a Reyes Beer Division company, has entered into an agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets of DBI Beverage Inc.’s beverage distribution business in Northern California. The transaction is scheduled to close in September.

Tom Reyes, President of Reyes Beer Division West, said, “DBI Beverage is a great company and has strong operations in Northern California. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to grow our business and expand our footprint to the northern part of the state. We anticipate a smooth transition and look forward to welcoming our new employees and building new relationships in the local communities.”

Tom Day, Chief Executive Officer of Reyes Beer Division, said, “We look forward to building great relationships with our new customers and our new employees. This transaction enables us to take further advantage of our scale while providing more opportunities for our organization. It also marks Reyes Holdings’ continued commitment to invest in the beer business. Over the past year, we’ve grown our operations in Chicago, Richmond, San Diego, Santa Fe Springs and Santa Maria, and we are thrilled to add Northern California to that list.”

The acquisition will add approximately 28 million cases to Harbor’s business, delivered to nearly 14,000 new customer accounts.
