“The Whole Foods Specialty Team Leaders were going to be in Bend and wanted to check out our brewhouse,” says CEO Chris Hodge. “We put our heads together and decided to brew a beer together.”
The hybrid pale ale was brewed with primarily English Maris Otter malt, providing a nice malty back drop. The NW-style hop profile makes it a perfectly balanced beer – just the kind of beer the Whole Foods and Worthy team wanted to drink. The limited release of 22-ounce bottles and kegs are available at Whole Foods Markets in Oregon and Washington.
Worthy Brewing Company delivers remarkably balanced, filtered ales that are hand-crafted using all natural, premium ingredients and the pristine water from the Cascade Mountains in Bend, Oregon. Its flagship beers include 12-ounce cans of: Worthy IPA, Worthy Pale Ale, Easy Day Kolsch, and Lights Out Stout. The bottling line also cranks out 22-ounce bottles of Worthy IPA, Worthy Imperial IPA and Eruption Imperial Red Ale, along with limited releases of specialty and seasonal beers.
Worthy Brewing Company opened its doors in Bend, Oregon in early 2013. Within its first year, a canning line, bottling line, expanded fermentation space, a kitchen expansion, and an addition of a five barrel pilot brew system were completed. Worthy also boasts a greenhouse and hop yard onsite for growing estate and experimental hops in conjunction with Oregon State University and Indie Hops.
