Jason Musseter general manager of Mussetter Distributing in Auburn stands inside a cold storage room where he keeps draft craft beers that are distributed to clients. The once humble, two-person operation grew over the years and became a top distributor for beer-making giants that included Miller Brewing, Corona, Heineken, Sam Adams and others. However, by the turn of the millennium, the business was changing. Big-brand brewers increasingly turned to so-called “mega-distributors,” who would handle millions of cases of product on a grand scale. Mussetter’s second generation of operators shifted gears to keep the business going. Today, Mussetter Distributing specializes in handling the region’s ever-growing sector of craft beer brewers and makers of hard ciders. Jason Mussetter is the general manager of the Auburn business.
