Night Shift Distributing has announced that Ghostfish Brewing‘s products will be hitting Massachusetts shelves. Founded in 2015, the Seattle-based brewery is the first and only gluten-free brewery in Washington.
Ghostfish started off with a bang, winning both the gold and bronze medals in the Gluten-Free Beer category at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival. Since then, beers like their Grapefruit IPA and Meteor Shower Blonde Ale have continued to bring home awards.
“What I love about the beer industry is passionate folks who go above and beyond to create the best possible products, said Night Shift Distributing CEO Rob Burns. “Ghostfish has taken their personal desire for quality gluten-free beer and made it an obsession. They source ingredients from a handful of gluten-free malt houses, and are solely dedicated to gluten-free beer production. You can taste that passion and dedication in the fantastic product that just so happens to be gluten-free.”
Massachusetts will be only the second state outside of the Pacific Northwest to see Ghostfish Brewing cans on the shelf. Brian Thiel, Co-Owner/Director of Marketing and Sales for Ghostfish, emphasized the value of finding the right partner to help his company enter this new market.
“We are proud to partner with Night Shift Distributing to bring our award-winning brews to the beer lovers of Massachusetts,” said Thiel. “With this new relationship we are confident we have placed our brand in the capable hands of people who share the same passion as we do for pushing the boundaries of craft beer.”
4-packs of a variety of Ghostfish’s offerings will be available in stores starting mid-February. Beer drinkers in the Bay State can look forward to trying Grapefruit IPA, Meteor Shower Blonde Ale, and Shrouded Summit Belgian White Ale at the outset.
Ghostfish Brewing is Washington State’s first and only dedicated gluten-free craft brewery. Since opening in February 2015, Ghostfish Brewing has been exploring the uncharted waters of never before-used brewing techniques and testing the limits of what can be created with malted millet, buckwheat and brown rice. Ghostfish has taken national and international awards in both gluten-free and barley beer categories, and its beers are currently distributed in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, Vermont, Massachusetts, and British Columbia, Canada.
