A History of Hard Work and Personal Service
More than 65 years ago, in a garage on Main Street in Universal, Pennsylvania, Nick Balson Sr. founded Balson Distributors Inc. From that time, Nick Sr. worked to grow his business by personally delivering to as many local bars, restaurants and clubs as he could. Through personal deliveries and caring for walk-in trades, Nick Sr. outgrew his original location and in 1957 moved to the current location in Plum Borough in Pittsburgh.
In 1986, Nick Sr. incorporated the business and passed the reigns over to his son, Nick Balson Jr. Even under the new ownership, Balson Distributors Inc continued the same commitment to hard work and carried the best of local breweries, such as Pittsburgh Brewing, Stoney’s and Straub, as well as nationwide favorites.
Balson Distributors Inc still delivers to bars and restaurants in the Pittsburgh area while maintaining one of the largest inventories of beer in the city. We keep our inventory large to meet the needs of our customers, and their customers in return. We also carry other necessities like taps, tubs, sodas and ice to meet your personal or commercial needs. Balson Distributors Inc is committed to your satisfaction. If you need something we don’t have, just ask and we’ll get it for you.
