Columbia Distributing has roots in this region, and our Northwest values – accountability, integrity, respect and trust – have helped us grow a portfolio that’s one of the most diverse and robust in the country.
But being big doesn’t keep us from thinking small.
Our size allows us to specialize. We’ve tailored our teams and practices to meet the unique needs of emerging names while supporting Miller-Coors and other industry titans. Our salesforce recognizes the differences between these branches of the business to ensure brands of all sizes succeed.
A deep understanding of the beverage landscape allows us to individually serve suppliers, retailers and restaurateurs. We care about your customers, too. Our insights balance what’s well-loved with what’s coming next, so they can get what they want and find something unexpected.
This is Columbia Distributing, where people and brands always matter. We are stronger, better and faster because we cultivate the best employees and products. To us, being part of the beer community is part of being in the Northwest. We’ve been toasting, reveling and relaxing with you since 1935. Let’s celebrate together.
A THREE-TIER SYSTEM IN WASHINGTON AND OREGON
Columbia Distributing’s top priorities are the safety and satisfaction of its customers. We abide by the federally mandated three-tier system to guarantee safe delivery and sales of our brewers’ and importers’ beverages. Movement from supplier to state-based distributor to retailer to consumer ensures integrity of product, efficient service and legal usage. We respect the high level of accountability that comes with our place in the industry, and we’re committed to discouraging sales to minors and unsafe consumption of the alcoholic beverages we carry.
We stand with our trusted partners in this promise:
