With few exceptions, Washington beer is a Washington thing. Few of Washington’s 400+ breweries distribute beer outside of the state. Ghostfish Brewing is one of the exceptions. On the heels of its 6th anniversary, Ghostfish Brewing recently announced that it has expanded its distribution footprint to include two more states: Montana and California.
This means that beer from Seattle’s first and only dedicated gluten-free brewery is now available in 17 states. Also, available for online ordering in 30 states.
“To this day, we don’t take no for an answer,” said Brian Thiel, Managing Owner and co-Founder of Ghostfish Brewing Company. “On a daily basis, we continue to push the boundaries of what gluten-free beer is. Of all the states in the US, those living in Montana have been the most vocal and persistent in getting Ghostfish there. And, I’m excited to finally get to answer an astounding YES to fans across the state.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with George’s Distributing to bring Ghostfish beer throughout all four corners of the state.”
On March 22, 2021, George’s Distributing begins offering Ghostfish’s seven flagships beers: Grapefruit IPA, Vanishing Point Pale Ale, Shrouded Summit Belgian White Ale, Kick Step IPA, Meteor Shower Blonde Ale, Peak Buster Double IPA, and Watchstander Stout, along with Seasonal beer release, It Came From the Haze Hazy IPA #6 to retailers throughout Montana.
“Georges Distributing is beyond excited to be partnering with Ghostfish Brewing Company. We work diligently to bring the best of the best to craft beer consumers in the Big Sky State,” said Jason Combs, Beer and Cider Brand Manager at George’s Distributing. “Ghostfish Brewing is an incredible brand focused on this common goal. Not only can we offer great craft beer produced from the brewing team there, we bring the leader in the gluten free craft beer industry to all thirsty consumers.”
“To partner with a brewery that offers their craft not only as a gluten free beer but as quality craft beer for all consumers is a wonderful thing! Georges Distributing truly values the opportunity to bring the vision of Ghostfish Brewing to Montana!”
As Ghostfish beer enters the market, Montanans will eventually find local retailers that carry Ghostfish beer by entering their zip code into Beer Finder. “But beware, the tool could take up to a month to catch the data to pull this for customers,” warns Combs.
“We’ve had our eyes on California for quite some time, but needed to be strategic about our entry. We’re thrilled to continue our trek down the West Coast so more people can enjoy Ghostfish beer,” said Brian Thiel. “There’s synergy with adventure-seeking Californians and what we created at Ghostfish: a pioneering spirit that’s existed since the beginning.”
Beginning March 17, 2021 Californians will find three of Ghostfish Brewing’s most popular brews Grapefruit IPA, Peak Buster Double IPA, and Watchstander Stout at BevMo! Locations throughout the state.
“We are delighted to welcome Ghostfish Brewing to BevMo locations throughout California. Ghostfish beers have been a favorite of BevMo customers in Washington, for a while, and we can’t wait to share these delicious brews with our California shoppers, as well,” said Ryan Cram, the Area Manager – North Bay. “If you live in California, and you’re a craft beer fan, you’re in for a treat the next time you visit your local BevMo.”
