Portland’s organic and carbon-neutral beers now available in most of Cascadia region
Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) recently expanded distribution of its beers to British Columbia and Seattle. Kegs and bottles of the company’s organic, sustainably-produced beers can be found in leading taphouses, bottle shops and markets in both regions.
“We wanted to share our beer with these markets to demonstrate great tasting beer can be made in an environmentally responsible manner,” said Christian Ettinger, brewmaster/owner of Hopworks. “Our goal is to grow regionally while raising the high standards of our beer even further. One of the ways we do this by adding new tanks to maintain our cycle times while increasing capacity.”
Last year, Hopworks expanded its brewing capacity with the addition of two 40-barrel fermenters increasing the brewery’s potential annual output to 10,000 barrels.
Hopworks Urban Brewery is located at 2944 SE Powell Boulevard and is open Sunday through Thursday from 11AM-11PM and Friday and Saturday from 11 AM to midnight. For more information, visit Hopworks online at www.HopworksBeer.com or call (503) 232-4677.
