Dicks Brewing Company

Centralia, WA 98531



NW Sausage & Deli was established in 1983 by Dick Young. His vision was to create a place where everyone can enjoy Old World style smoked sausage. Today, using electric air smokehouses we produce the finest sausages and deli products around- each are prepared to Dick's original, preserving Dick's Dream.

A lifelong meat cutter, Dick started his career at Midway Meats in Chehalis while still in high school. After graduating high school, he started his own custom slaughtering and meat wrapping business, Dick's Meat, across from Maple Lane School in Rochester. After 8 years in the business, Dick decided he wanted to focus his attention on the art of making and smoking sausages and various meats.

Dick opened the doors of NW Sausage & Deli on October 28, 1983, after building the business from the ground up. The business was a family project with Dick and Marilyn, their two children, Julie (7) and Jonathan (3), and Marilyn's mom, Carol Ponder, working part time.
