Kona Brewing Co. was founded in 1994 by the father and son team of Cameron Healy and Spoon Khalsa, who fell in love with Hawaii and dreamed of crafting fresh, local brews that would embody the spirit and culture of the Hawaiian people. Nearly 25 years later, Kona’s island-inspired beers are enjoyed across all 50 U.S. states and more than 30 countries, and the brand remains deeply rooted in its birthplace of Kailua-Kona where it continues to support diverse cultural, environmental, and community causes that preserve Hawaii's precious natural resources. In 2019, Kona will open its new state-of-the-art 100,000-barrel brewery in its home of Kailua-Kona. The new brewery, which will be one of the most sustainable breweries in the world, will enable Kona to meet local demand for its island-inspired beers, including best-selling flagships Big Wave Golden Ale and Longboard Island Lager.

Omission Brewing was founded in 2012 by Brewmaster Joe Casey, who made it his mission to brew a beer that he and his wife, who is gluten-sensitive, could drink together. Through this, Joe created Omission, a gluten-removed beer made with traditional brewing ingredients. Omission's award-winning portfolio includes Pale Ale, Lager and India Pale Ale. In 2017, Omission launched Ultimate Light Golden Ale, a refreshing and flavorful 99-calorie, 5-carb, gluten-removed beer. All the beers in Omission’s portfolio are held to the highest standards, and each batch is tested to ensure that its gluten content is below 20 ppm (parts per million), with test results posted on Omission’s website for transparency.

Kurt and Rob Widmer founded Widmer Brothers Brewing in 1984 in a former mattress factory located in what is now the Pearl district in Portland, OR. Inspired by their German heritage, the first two beers they brewed were Altbier and Weizenbier. When a loyal local account requested a third beer, and with no way to increase tank space at their brewery, the brothers left their Weizenbier unfiltered, thinking it was a simple, one-time solution. Not so. The cloudy wheat beer, poured into a distinctive pilsner glass and garnished with a lemon, was about to become the Original American Hefeweizen. Today, Hefe remains Oregon’s top-selling craft beer for its distinctive great taste and hazy appearance, and the beer continues to win awards, including nine medals from the Great American Beer Festival.

Redhook was born out of the entrepreneurial spirit of the early 1980s in the heart of Seattle.

Redhook’s year-round portfolio includes Long Hammer IPA, Bicoastal IPA, and flagship Big Ballard IPA, a bold and assertive IPA first brewed in the late 80s as an homage to the brewery’s original stomping grounds. Redhook's Brewlab, an experimental 10-barrel brewery and pub, opened in 2017 in Capitol Hill and was named Best Brewery, Best Bar and Best Happy Hour in Seattle Weekly in 2018.
