Manhattan Beer History
the late 1970s Simon Bergson started his business as the
owner-operator of a small beverage center in lower Manhattan, New
1978 the closing of the Rheingold Brewery enabled Simon to obtain
the local distribution rights to Carling Black label and Tuborg.
Thus Manhattan Beer Distributors was born, fulfilling one of Simon's
dreams - becoming a franchised beverage distributor, buying directly
from suppliers and providing best-in-class service to his customers.
From those humble beginning of operating out of a
4,000 square foot warehouse with 3 delivery trucks, Manhattan Beer
Distributors has managed consistent growth for over 30 years. We now
have over 1.5 million square feet of warehousing, strategically
located throughout out distribution territory.
We were the first
company in the northeast to convert a portion of its diesel fleet to
compressed natural gas with the goal of reducing pollution.
Additionally, we receive two-thirds of our product by rail, thus
annually removing over 10,000 tractor-trailer trucks from our busy
streets, significantly reducing the impact on the environment.
Manhattan Beer Distributors directly services over 25,000 accounts
in the metro New York City area. We represent over 50 suppliers and
offer some of the highest quality products in the world.
"Far beyond the success of my business, I am proud that we are
able to provide family-sustaining jobs to over 1,300 people and my
company has been able to give back to the community".
