J&B CRAFT DRINKS is a European premium craft beer trading and retail organization based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We focus only on high quality producers and breweries and offer our customers the finest craft beer, cider and soda. Even though all the drinks in our retail stores are sold refrigerated, we quickly learned that there is no product quality management in the European craft beer supply chain. So, we took it upon ourselves to change this and started importing and distributing craft beer and cider from the United States and Europe.
Now we have expanded our imports and distribution to most European countries. For breweries and cideries we offer a customized qualitative strategy to develop their brands in multiple European regions.
Cold Chain Distribution
Our entire supply chain is refrigerated to ensure quality and freshness. This means that the beers are trucked, shipped, stored and distributed while kept cold. We also use canning dates and best before dates to manage our stock so that we can guarantee the best quality for our customers and for the brewery.
Connecting Premium Producers
We only sell craft drinks from independent and artisanal producers. And since we have a crew of beer sommeliers we are perfectly equipped to advise and consult bars, restaurants and bottle shops on their drink’s menus and food pairings.
Promotion & Events
We organize tap takeovers, meet the brewer events, guided tastings and participate in multiple large European craft beer festivals and events.
Our accounts and clients are selected based on their knowledge of craft beer and cider, their own selection of food and beverages, and of course, refrigerated storage and distribution. This way we can match high quality breweries with high quality bars, restaurants and bottle shops.
European Legal and Cultural Compliance
We have developed a platform that enables us to organize VAT and excise remittance in most European countries. We can also help with local marketing and communication since our whole team has an international background: Dutch, Finnish, British, Irish, Canadian, French, German, South African and New Zealand.
Since 2019, J&B Craft Drinks has partnered with AmeriCraftBier for its US imports. Our goal is to forge long term relationships with a select number of breweries and develop their brand and products overseas. The focus here is quality and not quantity.
We offer a one-stop-shop solution for our clients where we strive to be the only step in the supply chain from brewery to end user thereby offering transparency for the producer and fair pricing for the consumer.
