Alpha Distributing was formed in the spring of 2011 by Aaron Gardner and Jeff Bert who combined, have over 35 years of experience in the craft brewing industry. Together, they saw a need for a new distributor in Western WA that would solely focus on small craft breweries that were either still handling distribution themselves or did not have a current distribution network. Past relationships with a handful of breweries as well as seeking out new opportunities for up and coming brewers and brands has allowed Alpha Distributing the opportunity to put together one of the best portfolios of ales and lagers here in Western Washington. Some of the breweries that Alpha Distributing currently represent are AleSmith Brewing from San Diego, Boneyard Brewing out of Bend Oregon, Logsdon Farmhouse Ales from Hood River Oregon, Everybody's Brewing in White Salmon Washington and Epic Brewing from Salt Lake City Utah. Recently added breweries include Backwoods Brewing and Bainbridge Island Brewing Company from Washington State.

Currently the sales department consists of 7 full time reps and a sales manager who cover the I-5 corridor from Vancouver north to Everett with the main focus being Clark, Thurston, Pierce, Snohomish and King Counties. The outlying areas covered at this time are parts of Lewis, Mason and Kitsap Counties depending on the need or request from customers outside the normal distribution areas. Alpha Distributing has a small fleet of trucks that deliver product 4 days a week to taverns, bars, restaurants, bottles shops, local grocery chains and specialty shops throughout the greater Seattle, Tacoma, Everett Olympia and Vancouver markets.

Alpha Distributing is committed to giving the best service to their customers at all times. They pride themselves on taking care of each account as if it were their own and making sure that when Alpha is mentioned by anyone in the beer industry, everyone involved in that conversation would highly recommend them as their distributor of choice.
