07 Mar Coalition Brewery
Coalition Brewing is a 10 barrel craft brewery located in the heart of Portland, Oregon. Established in 2010 by Kiley Hoyt and Elan Walsky, two brewers who met by chance at a local brewers supply store, we pride ourselves in producing the finest, freshest hand-crafted ales from the Pacific Northwest. Our mission is to bring the American craft beer experience directly to the local community while consistently innovating with new and exciting styles to stimulate your palate. Our beers are defined by balance and brewed in the Northwest style that put American craft beer on the map. Though each style is unique, they all showcase a distinct harmony of flavor and aromatics.
When designing our beers, we strive to use only the freshest ingredients found here in the bountiful Pacific Northwest. Our hops come directly from the Willamette and Yakima Valley. We source only the finest malts from Great Western Malting in Vancouver, Washington. Every beer is fermented using yeast from Imperial Yeast Lab right here in Portland, Oregon. These ingredients intermingle with crystal clear water from the Bull Run Watershed to create ales that are perfectly balanced for any occasion. We also support local businesses and farms by sourcing specialty ingredients from local manufacturers and donating our grains for use in regional agriculture to create a positive impact within our community.
Coalition made the first CBD beer called the Two Flowers IPA.
Coalition Brewing is excited to announce the release of the first commercially produced Cannobidoil (CBD) infused beer in Oregon. Our mission with this beer series was to encompass a true collaboration of these “kissing cousins”, hops and cannabis. These two plants produce similar organic aromatic compounds known as terpenes, and will have no THC present, the psychoactive element found in marijuana. We have been working with leaders in this immensely fast growing local industry on this project to showcase a harmony of both the beer profile of the Pacific NW and the Cannabis plant. This new emerging industry has many hallmarks of our own industry, with a focus on community, innovation and a positive impact to the local economy. We are excited that beer once again is giving us the opportunity and platform of breaking down barriers.
