Hopworks Urban Brewery heads North to Seattle

HUB- picture creds go to

Hopworks Urban Brewery, Oregon’s first sustainable brewery has a line up of perfectly crafted and earth friendly beers. Ranging from Survival Stout to Hopworks IPA, you will be impressed. One of my favorite past times traveling in Oregon includes a stop at HUB.

We tasted their stout, IPA and barelywine and all were top notch. After showing some interest in their operations, we grabbed our beers and headed downstairs. We walked into the area where all the glistening brewing equipment stood. This brewery makes a point to make a difference. The brewery uses biodiesel fired brew kettles using HUB fryer oil. I mean, c’mon, that is awesome and that is just one of the many things HUB does to stay green while brewing.

But I am bearer of good news this morning- HUB has come up North to Seattle and B.C. Canada. Now, I do not always have to go to Portland for HUB, HUB has come to me. Below is a statement released by HUB:

Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) recently expanded distribution of its beers to British Columbia and Seattle. Kegs and bottles of the company’s organic, sustainably-produced beers can be found in leading taphouses, bottle shops and markets in both regions.

“We wanted to share our beer with these markets to demonstrate great tasting beer can be made in an environmentally responsible manner,” said Christian Ettinger, brewmaster/owner of Hopworks. “Our goal is to grow regionally while raising the high standards of our beer even further.  One of the ways we do this by adding new tanks to maintain our cycle times while increasing capacity.”

Last year, Hopworks expanded its brewing capacity with the addition of two 40-barrel fermenters increasing the brewery’s potential annual output to 10,000 barrels.

So those in the Pacific NW, be on the look out for HUB beers on tap at a beer bar near YOU!
