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.

CBA nurtures its brands in today’s increasingly competitive beer market through our state-of-the-art brewing and distribution capability, integrated sales and marketing infrastructure, and strong focus on partnerships, local community and sustainability.

CBA is headquartered in Portland, Oregon and operates breweries and brewpubs across the U.S. CBA beers are available in all 50 U.S. states and 30 different countries around the world. For more information about CBA and our brands, please visit
