Company Description

Cavalier Distributing, the Craft Beer Authority, was founded in 1992 by George Fisher, a man who loved really good beer. He named his Cincinnati beer distribution company after his high school alma mater sports team, the Purcell-Marian Cavaliers and made deliveries himself in a 1986 Subaru Hatchback. Having six of eight pallets of beer inventory stolen was almost a fatal blow to the developing company. But the hard work and complete dedication to better beer paid off and, by 1999 Cavalier Distributing began expanding throughout Ohio, from home in Cincinnati to Columbus and Cleveland. Indiana distribution quickly followed in 2002, as sales staff and warehouse facilities increased. Florida joined the Cavalier Distributing service area in 2012.

Today, we operate 170,000 square feet of warehouse space dedicated to getting better beer to our customers throughout Ohio, Indiana, and Florida. With a humming distribution network of great people and environmentally-friendly delivery vehicles in place, a selection of choice, small batch spirits from around the globe was added to the Cavalier Distributing portfolio in 2014.

The customer-focused employees (now numbering close to 400), who know and appreciate excellent craft beverages are the reason for our continued annual growth. Today, the Cavalier sales team serves 10,000 accounts and is keenly focused on excellent customer service and client sales goals. Cavalier Distributing is satisfying the thirst for craft brewed beverages, and as the Craft Beer Authority, is expanding Americans interest in quality local and regional products.

Cavalier Distributing is proud to represent some of the finest breweries from across Ohio, the United States, and the world. We make it possible for our customers to serve the very best craft beer and spirits to their increasingly discerning, appreciative and educated customers.

We believe in our people and want them to thrive. We provide ongoing training about our quality products and distribution channels and equip our staff with the tools to succeed.
