Russian River Pulls Out of Washington

Let the speculation end here: Russian River has pulled their distribution out of Washington state. The brewery states that the recent withdraw was entirely due to supply vs. demand. Their brewpub does a whopping 50%+ of their sales and therefore they have chosen to take the supplies meant for Washington and send them to their brewpub. Also, for the same reason, don’t expect to see them expanding distribution any time soon. Finally, don’t believe the hype – all the rumors surrounding expansion, pulling out of Oregon, and just about everything else regarding the situation are just that. Now that all that is cleared up, carry on.
