Australian Liquor Marketers (ALM) has continued to develop its exclusive and owned brand portfolio by acquiring successful Australian craft beer brands, Doss Blockos and Lick Pier.

The two brands mark the first beer brands to acquired as part of ALM’s exclusive portfolio and continues ALM’s strategy to help independent retailers gain a significant competitive advantage against the majors with superior quality, value, and margin products.

Murray Riemann, General Manager of Exclusive & Owned Brands said: “ALM is very proud to be new owner and distributor for Doss Blockos and Lick Pier, as we continue to build our portfolio with the shopper in mind, to ensure we remain relevant in an ever-changing liquor retail landscape.

“We are excited to welcome these stalwart brands into our portfolio as we continue to champion successful independents.”

Doss Blockos was launched 12 years ago and is described as “a trailblazer brand” with an approachable taste. Lick Pier launched in 2011 and was one of the first alcoholic ginger beers to really gain momentum and has built a base of loyal fans since its launch.

Riemann added: “Doss Blockos and Lick Pier is truly a wonderful addition to our exciting portfolio. We look forward to watching the brands gain momentum by offering exceptional value across the entire value chain.”

Lick Pier and Doss Blockos join Poets Country Lager in the ALM exclusives beer range, while the wider portfolio also includes brands such as True Illusion Prosecco, Two Truths, and Molly’s Irish Cream.
