Ferment Brewing Company, an award-winning independent craft brewery based in Hood River, has expanded its distribution to Washington State. Ferment Brewing has partnered with Orcas Distributing, a family-owned and operated wholesale beverage distribution company, for coverage throughout the state. Orcas Distributing currently services all metropolitan areas of Seattle, including the East Side and surrounding regions of Lake Washington. Ferment will continue to self distribute in the Columbia River Gorge and Portland.
Ferment Brewing entered the Washington market earlier this week with its full line of signature bottled beers and two bottled premium ales. In June, the brewery will add its newly launched quarterly line of 16 oz. cans: Top Ferment, a series of seasonal, experimental, and one-off ales that explore different hops, malts, and yeasts; and Bottom Ferment, a collection of cooler, subtler lagers brewed with pure water from springs at the base of Mount Hood. The cans are sold individually and in four-packs. The brewery will also be distributing select handcrafted ales and lagers in 500 ml bottles and draft kegs.
“We’re excited to bring Ferment Brewing beers into Washington for the first time,” said Dan Peterson, Ferment Brewing Company’s brewmaster. “We’re looking forward to introducing the state’s beer lovers to our unique family of ales and lagers.”
Founded in 2018, Ferment Brewing currently self distributes its beers throughout Northwest Oregon, with products available at the brewery and in bottle shops and select groceries, including New Seasons Market, Green Zebra Grocery, Zupan’s Markets, and Market of Choice. During the COVID-19 quarantine, Ferment Brewing is operating a take-out window at its brewery at 403 Portway Ave. in Hood River, from 12 PM to 8 PM daily.
