Golden-based Holidaily Brewing Co. announced on Tuesday a statewide distribution agreement in Oregon and Washington through a partnership with Columbia Distributing.

Karen Hertz founded Holidaily Brewing Company in 2016 with one taproom in Golden that was open three days a week with three beers on tap. She wasn’t sure if people would be interested in a dedicated gluten-free beer. By the end of year one, Holidaily Brewing was open seven days a week, had 10 beers on tap, and Hertz found herself distributing beer out of the back of her “mom car” to retail accounts and stadiums throughout the Denver area.

Holidaily has since grown more than 1,121%, and its production brewery is the largest dedicated gluten-free brewery in the U.S. Exponential growth, along with a handful of national and local awards for both the quality of their beer and business practices have allowed for rapid expansion across the country, including Oregon and Washington.

“We are excited to bring Holidaily to the already established gluten-free beer-loving communities of Oregon and Washington,” said Hertz, chief Brewista at Holidaily as well as its founder.

“Our expansion into these states represents not only a strategic growth opportunity for our brewery in a like-minded market but also a chance to connect with beer enthusiasts in general who share our appreciation for quality ingredients and flavor.”

Columbia’s President and CEO Chris Steffanci anticipates great reception to the Holidaily brand for several reasons. “There’s already tremendous buzz about Holidaily in the Pacific Northwest,” Steffanci said. “First, the liquid stands up to any beer, gluten-free or not, it’s just great beer. Our retailers want a gluten-free option — customers are asking for it — and we’re excited to bring it to them. And to represent the only certified woman-owned brewery in the country … what an honor! We’re always proud to support females in this industry.”

Starting late April, Holidaily Brewing will be available in liquor stores, bars, restaurants and grocery stores throughout Washington and Oregon.

Distribution will begin with four of the brewery’s core styles: Favorite Blonde, Fat Randy’s IPA, Big Henry Hazy IPA and a rotating seasonal: Buckwit Belgian (March-August), Patchy Waters Pumpkin Ale (August-December) and Riva Stout (December-March).

Holidaily Brewing Co., a ColoradoBiz Top Company Award winner in the Tourism/Hospitality category last year, is the only certified gluten-free and certified women-owned brewery in the U.S. It has two tasting rooms in Colorado — one in Golden and one in the Denver Tech Center. Beers are distributed to liquor stores, restaurants, stadiums, grocery stores and breweries throughout Colorado, Arizona, Texas, California, Kansas, Kansas City Metro, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington.
