Loowit Brewing Begins Bottling & Celebrates One Year In Business

Loowit Shadow Ninja IPA

Loowit Brewing Company has become the first Vancouver, WA brewery, since the late Lucky Lager brewery closed in 1985, to offer a packaged, commercially available beer. Loowit’s popular Shadow Ninja IPA is now being packaged in 22 ounce bottles. The bottles are currently available for sale in the tap room at the brewery and will soon be available at select locations in Clark, Cowlitz and Skamania counties in Southeast Washington. Going forward, Loowit owners Thomas Poffenroth and Devon Bray plan to expand bottle availability and also add to the line-up of available bottled beers.
