SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Brown Bag Beverage, one of the fastest growing Craft Beer Distributors in the Greater San Diego area, added yet another great Craft Beer company, Hopworks Urban Brewing (HUB) from Portland, Oregon. Brown Bag Beverage will be distributing some of HUB’s most popular beers such as the “HUB Organic Pilsner”, “Hopworks Organic IPA”, and “Patagonia Long Root Pale” along with five of their most popular canned brews.

“We believe that the craft beer distribution market here in San Diego needed a new player with a different perspective, so we created Brown Bag Beverage to address the needs of both the retailer and the craft brewer,” said Susie Baggs, founder and Chief Beverage Officer. “It is through strong partnerships, like the one we have started with HUB, that will elevate the craft beer scene and ensure that we can continue to grow market share for the segment.  We are honored and excited to have a brewery as respected as Hopworks Urban Brewing as our first partner from Portland.”

Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB), Portland’s first Eco-Brewpub launched their beer to the world in March 2008. The 20-barrel brewery produces 13,500 barrels of beer and cider annually offering an assortment of award-winning, world-class beers made from organic malts and hops in cans, bottles and on draft across the Pacific Northwest.
