Athletic Brewing Company is America’s leading producer of alcohol-free craft beer. Founded in 2017 by Bill Shufelt and John Walker, Athletic Brewing opened America’s first dedicated alcohol-free brewery and taproom in Stratford, Connecticut. The company’s brews launched commercially in mid-2018 and have won over five dozen prestigious brewing awards.

In an effort to meet increasing demand, Athletic has built large brewing facilities in San Diego, California, and Milford, Connecticut. Athletic is now the 20th-largest brewery and third-largest alcohol-free beer brand in America. The company has produced over 100 million cans in less than five years, and its custom breweries will eventually be capable of producing more than 760,000 hectoliters annually. Its brews are sold in all 50 U.S. states as well as Australia, Canada, the UK, and several European countries.

In 2022, Athletic was ranked as the 26th fastest-growing private company in America by Inc. Magazine and named one of TIME’s “100 Most Influential Companies.” Additionally, Athletic has donated over $2.5 million to protecting and restoring outdoor spaces across the globe via its Two For The Trails program.
