Why Happy creek?
Glad you asked!
IT’S ALL WRITTEN INTO THE CONTRACT!
Can your brewery produce more beer than your taproom can handle?
Have you heard countless horror stories about being locked into a lifelong contract with a distributor that is so far out of tune with your needs that it just isn’t worth it?
Like you, we are the little guys. We wouldn’t want to be locked into a lifelong relationship with someone we just met and no way out. For that reason, we do things a little bit differently ‘round here. We offer a 90-day trial period and a “way out” at any point after two years.
WE GIVE YOU
A “WAY OUT”

AFRAID OF COMMITMENT?
LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER!
Let’s go on a blind date!
We swiped right! Let’s go on a blind date and see if there’s any chemistry in the air! We know this awesome brewery that will make for the perfect first date…wink wink!
Let's see where things lead.
Afraid of commitment but curious to take things a bit further and see where they lead? We offer a 90-day courtship to make sure we are compatible before tying the knot.
It’s not you, it’s me.
If things just aren’t working out after 90 days, simply fill out the “Dear John letter” attached to the end of our distribution contract. No harm, no foul.
Let’s get married!
After 90 days, if things are working out swimmingly, let’s seal the deal and become exclusive!
I wanna divorce!
Squibble, Squibble, Squawk, Squawk! If couples counseling doesn’t help, there’s no need for a messy divorce. We give you the option to buy back your sovereignty anytime after 24 months of faithful service.
No (unauthorized) arranged marriages here!
You will be given first right of refusal should we ever want to sell your distribution rights to another distributor. That way you aren’t stuck in a relationship you didn’t want.
YOU ARE IN CONTROL!
Days (or less)
You maintain control of your inventory right up until the beer is sold. This ensures you only sell the freshest beer on hand and it isn’t just sitting in a warehouse for months on end.
Furthermore, your beer will be delivered to the retailer within 7 days of brewery pick up. We’ll also track your kegs electronically so you know exactly where your kegs are at all times.
