GARDINER, Maine – Independent beer distribution company Pine State Beverage Co. is pleased to announce that Gene Lozito, Marketing Manager, has been recognized in the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) Employee Spotlight Program. Gene has worked for Pine State Beverage Co. for 20 years.

America’s more than 3,000 independent beer distribution facilities employ 135,000 men and women in communities across the country. The NBWA Employee Spotlight Program highlights standout beer distribution employees and showcases their achievements.

“It is often noted that many beer distribution companies are family-owned and -operated, and many of these businesses operate as an extended ‘family,’ with employees who have worked in the business for five, 10, 20 years or more,” said NBWA President & CEO Craig Purser. “NBWA’s Employee Spotlight Program recognizes these standout employees who are the face of the American beer industry in their communities.”
