Craft Brew Alliance
As the seventh largest craft brewing company in the U.S., Craft Brew Alliance is a leader in brewing, branding, and bringing to market some of the world’s best-loved American craft beers.
We were formed in 2008 with the merger of two pioneering Pacific Northwest craft brewers — Redhook Ale Brewery, established in Seattle in 1981, and Widmer Brothers Brewing, established in Portland, Oregon in 1984.
Kona Brewing Co., Hawaii’s oldest and largest craft brewery established in 1994, was the third pioneering brewer to join the Alliance in 2010, and today Kona is our largest brand family, with distribution across all 50 US states and 30 countries worldwide.
Today, our distinctive portfolio combines other strong regional breweries and innovative lifestyle brands such as Appalachian Mountain Brewery, Cisco Brewers, Omission Brewing Co., Square Mile Cider Co., and Wynwood Brewing Co.
