About Calvin's distributing Company
Calvin’s Distributing is a third generation family owned business located in Hermann, Missouri. In 1957 Marvin “Smilie” Scheidegger began the Distributorship with solely the Stag Beer brands. Calvin began working for his father in 1967 and became a partner in 1973. In 1978 Calvin and his wife Caroll Scheidegger purchased the business and continue operations as Calvin’s Distributing with two of their four children today.
Over the past 63 years of operation they have expanded their portfolio in wholesaling beverages and products from primarily the Keurig Dr. Pepper Snapple Group as well as Pinckney Bend Distillery, Hermannhof Wines, White Mule Wines, Tin Mill Micro Brews, Hermann Wurst Haus Sausage Company, Excel Bottling Sodas and Beers and until 2010 a Miller Brewing Company and Stag Beer wholesaler.
Calvin has always been a dedicated businessman as well as a strong community leader. Volunteering through the years with many civic organizations to make Hermann a better place to live and visit. The love for his hometown and a lifelong dream of brewing his own root beer finally seemed the right time in his life to make his dream a reality. So in 2011 with the help from a local winemaker, Tom Kalb and Calvin came up with the ingredients of the great tasting, old-fashioned barrel style root beer that Calvin remembers enjoying as a child. In the beginning, it was only produced in kegs or draft root beer. As the brand continued to grow, we expanded packaging, adding glass bottles in 2012.
Calvin and family want to thank you for your overwhelming support of their root beer. Named after their hometown Hermann, Missouri, established in 1836.
