    SCOTTSDALE, AZ (Oct 2012) - Bad Water branded beer has officially begun distribution of its signature Belgian style Saison beer by partnering with industry leader Alliance Beverage Distributing Company for statewide coverage.

    "Our mission was to unveil this unique Saison recipe with all the bang we could and honestly we couldn't be more pleased with the results, to that we owe serious thanks to our outstanding brewers and distribution partners. Plus it's a great bonus we get to kick off in our own hometown," said President Lewis Kubitz.

    The Bad Water brand has been building a local buzz with its unusual approach to marketing through edgy yet sophisticated artwork and advertisements commonly marked with a signature water splash. The unique Belgian style Saison beer balances the highest grade grains, hops, spices, and special blended yeast for a different taste and drinkability profile. The company’s decision to start with a Saison flavor was to fill a gap in the craft beer lineup and draw attention to a well deserving but not so well known style.

    Alliance Beverage Distributing Company will be showcasing the product in multiple keg sizes, 24-Packs, 6-Packs, and single bottles available for retail stores, bars and restaurants. “We are thrilled to partner with this very creative group of local craft brewers,” added Troy Slicker, Alliance Beverage State Beer Manager. “This signature Belgian style Saison is uniquely differentiated in the market, bringing a fun new twist to craft beer and an excellent addition to our growing craft portfolio.”

    They don't brew their own beer. Nimbus brewing company in Tucson brews the beer for them.

    Just noticed this beer. I honestly can't believe they name themselves Bad Water Brewing. What a way to be off-putting toward craft enthusiasts. Might as well just say Bad Yeast or Bad Hops Brewing.

    I would love to have an easily available local saison! However this just sounds like a marketing machine and not a brewery. I'm fine with contract brewing as long as you're creating the recipe. And yeah - I am not sure why someone would think it a good idea to combine the image of bad water with beer

    Ended up trying this on tap last night. I really had low expectations and I was dying to a beer, so it actually hit the spot. Will have to give it a try again to see what I think. It was a pretty easy drinking beer. Maybe not one I'd buy from a store for home consumption, but a decent choice for a restaurant with limited selection
