Breakside BreweryBreakside Brewery of Portland, OR, not long after announcing their new expansion with a 30-barrel production brewery in nearby Milwaukie, OR, has further declared that they will be partnering with Maletis Beverage mid-next month for distribution.

Breakside Brewery under owner Scott Lawrence and Brewmaster Ben Edmunds have greatly enhanced the craft beer scene in Portland since opening in 2010, winning multiple national awards for their craft beer and received local praise for their food pairings with regional artisan culinary specialists.

This new move also enhances the growing craft beer portfolio of Maletis, which carries other popular and award winning Oregon brewing companies such as Lompoc Brewing, 10 Barrel Brewing, Burnside Brewing, Oakshire Brewing, Ninkasi Brewing, Widmer Brothers Brewing, Southern Oregon Brewing, Occidental Brewing, Pelican Brewing, and more.

Here’s the full scoop on the new Breakside-Maletis partnership from the brewhouse:

PORTLAND, Ore. (Oct. 15, 2012) Breakside Brewery announces their new partnership with locally owned Maletis Beverage. Beginning mid-November the distribution company will start distributing Breakside Brewery draft beers to bars and restaurants throughout northwestern Ore. with the intention of distributing in packages once they are available. With Maletis distributing batches of Breakside’s innovative beers to a larger market, the brewery will be able to focus their efforts on increasing brew production.

“We knew Maletis was the right company to go with based on their reputation in the craft beer community, says Breakside Brewery owner Scott Lawrence. “From the first day we met we felt very comfortable with them, they were someone we could sit and have a beer with. They are the right company to help us expand into old and new markets within Oregon and someday soon within Washington.”
