Last year it was announced that Laurelwood Brewing would move from its contract brewing of a select few of its beers from Redhook Brewery in Woodinville, Washington to Full Sail Brewing in Hood River, Oregon. For the past 2 1/2 years Laurelwood has brewed 12 oz. bottles and draft offerings of its popular Workhorse IPA and Free Range Red at Redhook. After this transition to Full Sail it was announced today that Laurelwood Brewing will soon launch its popular Workhorse IPA in 12-pack, 12 oz. bottles.
“We’re thrilled to branch out into 12-packs and to offer one of Oregon’s best-selling IPAs in this packaging,” says James Buxman, Marketing & Sales Director for Laurelwood Brewing Co. in a press release. “Our new 12-pack will give craft beer drinkers more opportunities to enjoy our Workhorse IPA.”
First launched in 2006, Workhorse IPA has been one of Laurelwood Brewing’s most popular and sought after beers. Workhorse IPA earned the National IPA Championship title in 2009. Look for Workhorse IPA in these new 12-packs at Fred Meyer, Safeway, and Albertsons throughout Oregon and Washington, with additional retailers to follow.
