As the fifth 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. The company was originally formed in 2008 with the merger of two pioneering Pacific Northwest craft brewersRedhook Brewery, established in Seattle in 1981, and Widmer Brothers Brewing, established in Portland, OR in 1984. The merger, the first of its kind, represented an innovative union between two fast-growing craft brewers that wanted to grow and meet the demand from an ever-expanding consumer base.
Together, as Craft Brew Alliance, Redhook and Widmer Brothers gained an expanded brewery footprint, shared resources and access to a seamless national distribution network that enabled them to bring originals like Widmer Brothers Hefe and Redhook ESB to beer lovers across the U.S.
Kona Brewing Co., Hawaii's oldest and largest craft brewery established in 1994, was the third legacy brewer to join the Alliance in 2008. Today Kona is a top 10 national craft beer brand, best known for flagships such as Kona Longboard Lager and Big Wave Golden Ale.
In addition to growing and nurturing distinctive brands rooted in local heritage, we are committed to developing innovative new category leaders, such as Omission Beer, established in 2012 and already the #1 beer in the gluten free beer category. Our tribute to the earliest pioneers, Square Mile Cider, was launched in 2013 and is now the #2 hard cider in the Pacific Northwest.
