Year Acquired: 1983
Our History: In September of 1983, L. Knife & Son purchased L & M Wholesale located in Rome, NY, the same day the bottle bill took effect in New York State. In 1985, a new warehouse was erected in Westmoreland, New York, which would become Tri Valley Beverage, Inc. Tri-Valley has since doubled their warehouse space, and added additional warehouse space. Tri-Valley is 4 time Anheuser-Busch Ambassador of Excellence Winner (2008, 2011, 2012, and 2013). We offer a broad portfolio of Anheuser-Busch products, Diageo, St. Killian imports, and a full craft portfolio, as well as soft drinks.
Insider info: Beer goes great with: watching the Utica Comets (professional ice hockey team) and with outdoor recreational activities such as hiking, hunting and camping in the summer. Our beautiful area boasts multiple lakes, rivers, and streams for boating and fishing all year round. Great snowmobile trails, with many being groomed, crisscross most of the state in the winter with many local bars and taverns as great stops along the way. And beer goes great with our local fare, like Chicken Riggies (Rigatoni with chicken and spicy peppers), Utica Greens (a local specialty dish, made with roasted potatoes and spicy peppers, and Half Moons (half chocolate, half vanilla iced cookies).
