Portland, Ore. — Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) today announced the expanded distribution of their world-class, sustainably brewed beer into Utah. Hopworks is partnering with General Distributing beginning this month to supply 16 oz. cans, 22 oz. bottles, and draft offerings throughout the Salt Lake City metropolitan region and outlying areas.
“General Distributing Company is very excited to partner with Hopworks Urban Brewery,” said General Distributing President Andy Zweber. “Their high-quality craft beer brewed in Portland, Oregon’s most sustainable brewery will be well-received by beer drinkers in environmentally-conscious Utah.”
Brands such as HUB’s award winning Organic Hopworks IPA and their seasonal Organic Abominable Winter Ale are available at bars, restaurants and liquor stores. HUB’s lower alcohol offerings, Organic Totally Radler and Nonstop Hef Hop, fall below Utah’s 3.2% alcohol limit and are available in grocery stores served by General Distributing.
Hopworks is no stranger to Salt Lake City. For years Beer Bar, a leading bar in identifying and bringing top craft brands to Salt Lake City, has sold a variety of Hopworks brands. “Hopworks holds a special place in our bar and our hearts,” says Duncan Burrell, Owner of Beer Bar. “I moved from Portland to Salt Lake City with a goal to get HUB’s beer here. Rich, the other owner, was on board immediately and the rest is history. We are excited to have their beer available on a regular basis.”
