Welcome

Baker Distributing is a Vermont family owned and operated business. Founded in 1965 by brothers David Baker Sr. and Joseph Baker Jr, they strived to satisfy the need for diverse beverages to be available to consumers in Vermont. Started with only 3 employees in Rutland, hard work and great brands have allowed for growth that covers the whole state with over 220 hard working Vermont employees. We currently provide service to licensed accounts in our entire state from our 2 in-state warehouses in Colchester and North Clarendon.

Our portfolio contains the finest beer, cider, wine and non alcoholic beverages available in Vermont to satisfy the most discerning customer. We currently represent diverse brands from the following popular categories:

Beer and Keg
  • Vermont
  • Craft
  • Imported
  • Domestic

Each of these categories has many sub categories that you can explore in our Beer, Wine and Non alcoholic tabs above.

While many brands have come and gone over the years, the Bakers have believed that “brand building” was and will continue to be a key to our success. Along with that premise and the dedicated service from our employees, we will continue to help grow both new items and existing brands in Vermont.

Currently, the second generation is overseeing day to day operations, supported by a management team with unparalleled experience in the beverage industry. David Baker Jr and Mike Baker each have over 20 years in the family business, and will continue to operate the company as a family business.
