Red Hook to Expand Distribution in Canada


Redhook Brewery was born out of the energy and spirit of the 80’s in the heart of Seattle. From this modest start in a former transmission shop in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood, Redhook has become one of America’s best known craft breweries. While Redhook has grown up over the past 30 years, one thing has never changed, brewing great beer and having fun doing it. And now it’s available in BC and AB!

Redhook is the OG of craft beer, brewing balanced and sessionable beers with more flavors and aromas than super-premium import and domestic beers. Redhookdrinkers are able to enjoy the simple pleasure of craft beer, without having to study or contemplate. Redhook is intended to be enjoyed amongst friends, not intellectualized. 2015 is the year of the sessionable craft beer.

But, don’t just take our word for it:-

“Craft beer, whatever you want to call it, has gone mainstream. Now, it’s growing up and maturing, and it already has several generations of brewers. Without the pioneers, the rest wouldn’t be here today. And while today’s newbies push the envelope ever further – which is what they should be doing – the bigger, older breweries are getting better at what they do, building bigger names, and providing a bridge between the mainstream and the cutting edge.” Pete Brown


In March, Redhook, through its agent Beerthirst, will be offering beer lovers a chance to try three of their signature beers while also having an opportunity to win a Redhook beer fridge!
