Launched 2013 to 2015
With a portfolio of over 300 different beers and spirits, Allied beverages is one of the largest beer distributors in California for the last 60 years. They’ve partnered with some of the world’s most recognized brewers and importers to serve over 12 million cases of beers to over 4000 licensed retailers across Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. Our job at BlueK was to help create an online presence for this impressive family owned operation.
Allied’s focus was not only on providing knowledge of the different beer types and food pairings but also to showcase their beer portfolio to inquiring retail partners. Our first and most important task was to ensure that Allied was supported by a modern, user friendly Content Management System, Sitefinity, so their portfolio could be updated as their business changed.
