Milton Working and his wife Sharon, incorporated under the name Working Beverage and purchased a small wholesaler in Evansville, Indiana that distributed Schlitz, Old Milwaukee and Carling Black Label. Throughout the years, Working Beverage acquired many different brands. From its humble beginning, The Working family’s small business had become the largest wholesaler in the Evansville market in 1981. The family incorporated under the name of Working Distributors in 1984, when they purchased a small Anheuser-Busch wholesaler in Posey County. In May of 1987, they purchased another Anheuser-Busch wholesaler in Vanderburgh County. As a result of acquisitions and steady growth, in November of 2002 the company moved into a new home. The Working family wanted a facility that reflected their core values. From location, design and construction the concepts of service, efficiency, productivity and expandability were imperative.
