Mims Distributing Company Adds Starpoint Brewing To Its Roster
Triangle Distributor Expands Beer Selection With Handcrafted Brands From Carrboro, North Carolina
RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 11, 2014 – Mims Distributing Company, a beer distributor servicing a nine-county area in and around the Triangle, has announced the addition of Carrboro, North Carolina-based Starpoint Brewing to its roster of brewer partners.
Known for local handcrafted beer, Starpoint filled its first orders in July 2012 and is led by Tim Harper. A homebrewer for several years, Harper started Starpoint to provide high quality, locally produced, fresh craft beer to the Triangle. Starpoint’s most popular brew, the “Surfin’ Buddha,” is a different take on traditional IPA-style beers, with a moderately bitter taste that is built on five malts and four hop varieties.
Starpoint’s success is another example of how the craft beer industry continues to explode in North Carolina. The Research Triangle area specifically is gaining recognition as one of the nation’s top beer regions, with a growing beer culture and number of craft breweries. With the help of Mims, Starpoint plans to expand over the next few years to increase production to satisfy the demand of Mims’ distribution area.

“We could not be more excited to begin our partnership with Mims Distributing,” said Harper. “We know Mims is a reputable and accomplished distributor, and we are ready to grow our local business to reach even more beer lovers in and around the Triangle.”
“We are excited to announce the addition of Starpoint Brewing to our growing portfolio of craft beers,” said Chip Mims, CEO of Mims Distributing Company. “Starpoint is a great local brewery and we support its efforts to focus on the quality of the brews they create. We look forward to helping them grow and promoting their business around the Triangle.”
