Propolis Brewing to Begin Distributing in British Columbia

Propolis Brewing

Port Townsend, WA – Port Townsend’s Propolis Brewing is teaming up with Beerthirst to distribute its multi-awarding ales in British Columbia. The new expansion will bring Propolis’ unique, hand-crafted seasonal herbal ales to specialty liquor stores throughout British Columbia in late January 2016. The introduction will give British Columbian craft beer drinkers access to award winning Propolis ales such as Beltane Golden Elderflower Saison Brett and Spruce Golden Saison.


“Propolis is making extremely small batch high end herbal seasonal ales, many that fall into the farmhouse beer style that the consumers are craving regularly,” says Jason Lehr, rare beer director at Beerthirst. “Having the bottles both wax dipped and corked shows that they care about how the liquid is cared for after leaving the brewery.  They are one of a few breweries that pride themselves on `beer care’; how to store the bottles and for how long, how to pour the beer, and array of food pairings are outlined for every beer they sell”.

Propolis Ales are brewed using 100% Certified Organic Pacific Northwest Malted Barley and Wheat, as well as organically sourced spelt, oats and rye.  Utilizing locally grown organic herbs, or wild-craft herbs from the forest and the fields that adorn Port Townsend, each vintage is unique to the “Flavors of the Season”.
