Few consumers think much about how their favorite beer winds up in their local tavern or store. If they live in Kern County, CA, the "King of Beers" comes to them through the distribution facility of Advance Beverage Company. Founded in 1971 in Bakersfield, CA, Advance Beverage is a 93,000-sq-ft Anheuser-Busch distribution center, serving Kern County and parts of Los Angeles, and representing over 50% of the beer distribution market share in their area.
Advance Beverage's business relies heavily on its warehousing facilities. Distribution means far more than the delivery of product - it means the proper warehousing of these beverages to maintain the integrity and packaging of the product especially with regard to precise temperature and environmental control.
