Born from humble beginnings

Founded in 1978, Manhattan Beer Distributors has grown from humble beginnings to incredible heights. When our founder and CEO, Simon Bergson, started the business, he had 1 truck, 4,000 square feet of warehouse space, the distribution rights to 2 brands, and a lot of determination. Today, Manhattan Beer Distributors has over 350 trucks, over 1 million square feet of warehouse space, and the distribution rights to 300 brands.
