Craft Brewing And Distilling News for April 6, 2016April 6, 2016
•Oregon-based Hood River Distillers’ Trail’s End Bourbon is set to hit a slew of new markets this year. Trail’s End (90 proof/$50 a bottle) launched last year in an initial batch of 1,400 nine-liter cases that shipped to 20 states. The current 3,000-case run of the product will expand its distribution territory to 30 states. A Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey aged eight years in charred white oak barrels, Trail’s End is steeped with Oregon oak for a few months and infused with Mt. Hood spring water to create the finished product.
•Philadelphia’s Saint Benjamin Brewing Company is undertaking an expansion that will allow its capacity to rise to roughly triple from its current base of 1,500 barrels. Saint Benjamin is also set to begin canning its flagship brews Inca and Wit or Witout, and is adding two new brews to its 750-ml. bottle lineup: Liaison Saison and Saison du Jour IX. With the expanded production capacity, Saint Benjamin plans to widen its Pennsylvania distribution beyond Greater Philadelphia and also move into the New Jersey and Delaware markets.
