The brewery launched in Eastern Washington in early July and now sets sights on planning and rollout scheduling for Seattle later this Summer.

The beer speaks for itself," commented Bill Kring.

Ordnance Brewing is an outlier, brewery born of necessity in the arid Columbia Plateau where farming and a day of hard work is the norm. Located in Boardman, Oregon, Ordnance Brewing began operations in 2014 with a 7 barrel brewhouse and has recently expanded to a 50 barrel system to support growing distribution and long term plans. Currently, the brewery offers a set of five core beers including Kolsch, FMJ IPA (English Style), EOD IPA (Westcoast style), RX a Rye Extra Pale, a blueberry wheat called Bloops, and a series of limited edition beers. Seeking distribution both domestically and internationally, Ordnance Brewing is poised for steady growth and quality control.
