PORTLAND, Ore. — Natian Brewery is proud to announce that we’re expanding our distribution network! We have recently joined forces with Nevulis Beverages, based in Schnecksville, PA, and will soon be offering our hand crafted ales all across that fine state.
Yes, Pennsylvania is a long way from our home base in Portland, Oregon, we know. But there is some history there and we feel it’s a great opportunity to build our brand, while exposing others to the great beers of the Pacific Northwest.
Natian owner and head brewer, Ian McGuinness, spent his formative years growing up in Central Pennsylvania until he graduated high school. He then moved out west with his family, where he lived and attended college in New Mexico, before finally settling in Portland in 2005. Ian still has many good friends in Pennsylvania and he always hoped to be able to share his beer with them someday. This is a way for him to realize that dream and grow the brewery at the same time. It’s really a win-win opportunity.
Natian’s first shipment to Nevulis is slated for early to mid-February, with expected release by February 28th. Natian will be supplying Nevulis with its Undun Blonde Ale, Old Grogham Imperial IPA and CuDA Cascadian Dark Ale. All three varieties will be available in 16oz cans, kegs and variety cases. Nevulis hopes to unveil Natian Brewery beers to Pennsylvania beer lovers at the Philadelphia Beer Festival on March 2, 2013.
