Ghostfish Brewing Expands Capacity, Distribution

Seattle, WA – Ghostfish Brewing Company recently signed with three distribution companies (The Odom Corporation, Marine View Beverage, and Sound Beverage Distributors) to distribute its award winning ales throughout Western Washington. These three companies collaborate as members of the Great Artisan Beverages Company (GAB). GAB is a wholesaler network covering multiple states with a vision to market and sell leading craft and specialty beverage products.

Ghostfish Brewing had previously self-distributed throughout specific areas within Western Washington since March 2015.

“Choosing distributors was a task that we didn’t take lightly,” stated co-owner and Director of Sales & Marketing Brian Thiel. “It was extremely important for us to align our business with distributors who could extend our commitment to quality and service while expanding the reach of our products.”

“At Odom and the GAB network we take the partnerships seriously. It’s not just about sales and growth, it is about fit. As an 80 year old business we assume we will be partners 80 years from now and plan accordingly. When the discussion with Ghostfish started we were excited because the product is phenomenal and truly unique. What excited us even more was when we started to understand the passion and mission behind the founders of Ghostfish. Truly great products from great people. Who doesn’t want to be a part of that? Wholesalers have to be more than trucks and boxes. We have to have the best products and people to win. We are proud to represent Ghostfish and our other brewery partners and retailers in the markets we serve,” says Scott Cook, VP of Sales, The Odom Corp.

2015 was a banner year for Ghostfish Brewing Co. Beginning with opening the doors to their business in February, the year saw the release of four packaged beer products; being awarded two GABF® medals; and building a solid retail account base of over 200 customers. These milestones prepared the brewery for a larger distribution stage.

In preparation of expanding its distribution network, Ghostfish Brewing added two 30 BBL fermentation tanks in the beginning of 2016. In order to meet increased demand and to ensure the quality of the beer remains top priority, Ghostfish Brewing plans to add two 60 BBL

fermentation tanks by the end of 2016. The increased capacity will position the brewery for further distribution throughout Washington and surrounding states.
