The Portuguese craft beer distributor Gastroco joins the Danish distributor group One Pint Brands and will from the 18th of February be renamed to One Pint Lda.

Gastroco is a relatively new distributor on the Portuguese market. But the people in the company are far from new to the beer industry in Portugal. The company is led by Luis Figuera. Luis is one of the cofounders of another beer distributor, Original 1920 and has 11 years of experience in the drinks business.

Gastroco has in a very short time raised to be an important player in the Portuguese craft beer scene. The aim has been to deliver a selected portfolio with high quality craft beer brands. The focus is on beers from the USA such as Sierra Nevada, Rogue, Kona and Firestone Walker but also beers from Europe, like Poppels organic beers from Sweden. Recently a local, Portuguese beer called OPO74 has been added to the portfolio.

“Being part of a larger group will help us expand faster, give better service to our customers and get access to fresher America beers.” says Luis Figuera.

This is an important step in One Pint Brands’ strategy to expand: With this step One Pint Brands will have four markets with direct distribution (Denmark, Germany, Slovenia and Portugal), three markets with partners (Croatia, the Czech Republic and Slovakia) and another three with re-export (Austria, Greece and Romania). In total One Pint Brands will cover ten markets selling an estimated volume of 45,000 HL per year.

One Pint Brands has extensive experience in building up distribution companies in terms of business development, sales, marketing, logistics, beer knowledge etc. “Since One Pint was founded 16 years ago, we always had the mission to be the preferred partner for private breweries around the world; we are there for the producers. By entering new markets, we can make it easier for craft beer producers to reach out further without having their own people in each country. At the same time, we can bring knowledge, service and – very important – fresh beer to the distributors within the One Pint group,” says Henrik Kirkegaard, founder of One Pint, who welcomes this new member of the group.
