Worthy Brewing Releases Prefunk Pale Ale


Bend, Ore. — Worthy Brewing Company announces Prefunk Pale Ale, the newest in its family of canned craft ales. The addition to Worthy’s year round lineup comes in at 6% ABV with 50 IBU, making it a quintessential Northwest American Pale.

Pacific Northwest malts provide a balanced taste and mouthfeel, rounded by a smooth caramel background. Made with Citra and Amarillo hops, it finishes with a juicy hop burst with hints of tangerine, lychee, and pink lemonade.

The new addition will be permanently replacing Worthy Pale (also known as Eastside Pale). “Playing with hops is one of the best parts of being in this industry,” says CEO, Chris Hodge. “Sticking with our mantra of ‘Hopcentricity,’ we wanted the flavor profile and new look and name to reflect that.” The year round release will be distributed in six pack cans and draft in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, British Columbia, Oahu, and Vermont.

With a sneak peek at the upcoming Opening Reception of the Craft Brewers Conference in Portland, Worthy also has several release events planned, including:

  • April 23 – Worthy Brewing Company. Draft and can release with food pairings. 1130a-10p.
  • April 28 – Goodfoot Lounge in Portland, Oregon with music from Yak Attack. 8p-12a.
  • May 1 – Pre Funk Beer Bar in Boise, Idaho with live music and giveaways. 5-8p.
  • May 8 – Broken Top Bottle Shop in Bend, Oregon with live music and giveaways. 6-9p.


Worthy Brewing Company opened its doors in early 2013, delivering remarkably balanced, filtered ales that are hand-crafted using premium ingredients and the pristine water from the Cascade Mountains in Bend, Oregon. Worthy’s campus includes a large outdoor biergarten, full restaurant, and a greenhouse and hop yard onsite for growing estate and experimental hops in conjunction with Oregon State University and Indie Hops.
