Phillipsburg, NJ – July 12, 2011 – Craft-beer wholesaler Hunterdon Distributors has signed an agreement with Caldera Brewing Company from Ashland, Oregon. Consumers can expect to find a sampling of their products throughout New Jersey by the end of summer 2011.
Caldera Brewing Company was founded in 1996 and was a draft-only operation until 2005 when they became the first craft brewery in Oregon to brew and can their own beer. The brewery, located in Oregon’s Rogue Valley, is revered among craft beer enthusiasts for their dedication to using strictly whole-flower hops for their entire line-up of ales and lagers. In addition, their ten-barrel brew house ensures that only small-batch, high-quality beers are produced each and every time.
Caldera products are currently distributed in eleven U.S. States with East coast representation in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Products scheduled to be released in New Jersey will include three of their year-round beers: Pale Ale, India Pale Ale and Ashland Amber Ale.
This is the third brewery that Hunterdon will be representing from Oregon – a state known for its abundance of exceptional craft breweries and award-winning beers. Hunterdon is proud to be adding yet another top-notch craft brewery to their portfolio.
