Created by Oregonians Brad Whiting and Seth O’Malley in Hood River, Wilderton features non-alcoholic spirits distilled from raw botanicals. Inspired by the unharnessed flavors and aromas of the natural world, Wilderton focuses on harnessing natural flavors from botanicals, both sourced in the Northwest and beyond for unique flavor combinations. Raw botanicals are brewed in small batches to extract their flavors and aromas. Then, distillation is used to focus and intensify the raw botanical essences. The result? Flavor that packs a punch without alcohol ever being introduced.

Athletic Brewing Co.
Founded by beer lovers, for beer lovers, Connecticut-based Athletic Brewing Co. creates non-alcoholic craft beers using all-natural ingredients. Founded by Bill Shufelt in 2018, Athletic Brewing Co.is the first non-alcoholic beer taproom in the country. With a great line-up for both “hop heads” or malt-focused drinkers, all their beers are both low in calorie and contain less than 0.5% ABV.
Traditionally, non-alcoholic beers are created by macro breweries by removing the alcohol from a regular beer. There are several ways to do this; the most common is to boil the alcohol off or filter it out. Both of these methods diminish the aromatics and flavor of the beer. After giving up alcohol before his wedding, Shufelt became all too aware of the lack of quality non-alcoholic options available. He eventually partnered up with experienced brewer John Walker and together, the vision for Athletic Brewing was born. After hundreds and hundreds of trial brews on their homebrew system, they finally developed a new way to produce high quality, fully fermented and conditioned craft non-alcoholic beers.
Athletic Brewing Co. offers their flagship Run Wild IPA and Upside Dawn Golden Ale year-around with additional seasonal beers and other limited release beers throughout the year.
