I’m quite excited to see that we will now be able to bring home bottles of Double Mountain beers here in Seattle. They had a release party last night at Bottleworks, and there will be another one tonight at Chuck’s on 85th.
Double Mountain Bottles Rolling to Western WA
? Reusable Half-Liter Bottles Hit Shelves Today ?
? Tasting Parties this Week at Bottleworks, Chuck’s 85th
The wait is over! Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom, Hood River, Oregon, is pleased to announce the arrival of their bottled beer to retail outlets throughout Western Washington. The brewery’s core brands – Kölsch, Vaporizer Dry-Hopped Pale Ale, India Red Ale (IRA) and Hop Lava Northwest IPA – will be on shelves and available for purchase at outlets starting May 1, with seasonals and other specialties to follow. Distribution will be handled by Alpha Distributing of Kent, WA, Double Mountain’s wholesaler of record since 2011.
A partial list of initial retailers includes:
Beer @ a Time
By The Bottle
Chuck’s 85th St. Market
Gravity Beer Market
Ken’s Market Queen Anne
Last Drop Bottleshop
Met Market Sandpoint
Met Market Uptown
NW Liquid Gold
Whole Foods Westlake
…with more to come online soon.
The beers come in unique half-liter (16.9 oz) bottles made in Germany with thick-walled glass, allowing them to be cleaned and reused dozens of times. Double Mountain will be soliciting finer retailers to serve as drop-off stations for the empties, which will be returned to the brewery for reuse. There will be no deposit charged or returned. Visit www.DMReturns.com to learn more about this green program and to find participating retailers as they are secured. To celebrate the new bottles, the brewery will be meeting fans tonight, May 1 at Bottleworks and tomorrow night, May 2, at Chuck’s 85th St. Market, both of whom will be pouring some special DM draft beers as well. Come on down and check them out!
