Silver City Brewery begins full-time distribution to Central, Eastern Washington
April 1, 2016 - 10:37 AM- by Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog -
Silver City Brewery just announced that it is now distributing beer full-time to Central and Eastern Washington, working in partnership with Odom Corporation.
"Since we first began outside distribution, our friends over the pass have been patiently asking when they can expect to find our beer locally," comments Director of Sales & Marketing Kurt Larson, "Expansion is something we don't take lightly. We flat-out refuse to increase our footprint unless we can be certain that the beer will remain of the utmost quality, and that we can maintain an active, personal relationship with every bar, restaurant, or retailer that chooses to carry the Silver City Brewery brand."
Silver City says that in order to ensure that the quality of the beer remains top-notch, the brewery has added two brand-new fermentation vessels, with a 160-barrel capacity---their largest tank addition to date. These are Silver City Brewery's first all-weather tanks, and are staged outside the building, near the grain silos.
Brewery founder Scott Houmes comments, "We have made great strides since opening our production facility in 2010. Hard work and persistence does pay off. I am very proud of the team we have put together here in Bremerton. Each individual has helped us reach our goal of continuing to create fresh, approachable craft beer."
"We are truly blessed to have so many fans of Silver City beer. Their commitment to our brand has allowed us to build our team, add needed brewing equipment and expand our brand. It seems like just yesterday that we were producing 2,300bbls (2010). Now as we approach 15,000 this year, it's exciting to know that our fan base has reached the other side of the great state of Washington."
Silver City draft beer is currently available at many wonderful bars and restaurants in Central and Eastern Washington including Lantern Tap House, Manito Tap House, Saranac Public House, Barley's Brewhub and Brews Taphouse.
