SW Washington’s hottest new cidery!
Here at Mela Brewing Co. we strive to do two things; Honor our roots and brew a high quality Hard Cider. We honor our Italian heritage with our name, Mela, the Italian word for Apple. We also honor our heritage through the care and precision shown towards the fermentation process of every batch of Hard Cider, and through the ingredients that we use. There is an old Italian proverb that says, “Buon vino fa buon sangue.” Translated to English it quite literally means, good wine makes good blood. What is hard cider if not apple wine?
ABOUT OUR STAFF
Matthew Loftgren, our Founder and Head Brewer first came up with the idea that would become Mela Brewing Co. while attending college at Concordia University Portland. With a background in the restaurant industry, and a passion for cider making, he began to develop the business. In the midst of a pandemic, he opened up a small nano cidery and has never looked back.
