About Us


A family owned Anheuser-Busch & Local Orange County Craft Beer Distributor serving Orange County and the Inland Empire since 1948.

We distribute an ever expanding lineup of craft beer with 18 local brands and 8 of the top nationwide brands in our portfolio. We provide more local craft brands than any other Orange County Craft beer distributor and pride ourselves on our superior service.

Straub also provides more than just beer; we have an extensive non-alcoholic beverage portfolio with popular brands in many categories as well as the leading craft chip and snack brands.

Founded by Arthur “Bud” Straub we remain a family owned business to this day.

Over the years we have grown to employ over 330 team members and are one of the largest Anheuser-Busch & Craft Beer distributors in America. We are a benchmark wholesaler in the ABI family!


Our Ownership

Founded in 1948 by Arthur ‘Bud’ Straub, Straub Distributing now celebrates over 69 years of service and local ownership.

Bud held the company reins as Orange County and Straub Distributing grew side-by-side until his passing in 1981.

In 1981 ownership passed to Bud’s four daughters and the business continued to grow as Straub dominated Orange County market share. In 1995, sales hit a staggering 12,260,000 case-equivalents.

Straub Distributing remains locally owned and is in the capable hands of the Straub daughters:

Judith S. Adams

Suzi Baker-Vaughn
