A new online business is setting up shop in Montavilla, offering home delivery of local beers. Called Rose City Beer Collective, owner Joel Banta expects to start delivering boxes to the first customers early in 2021.
“Rose City Beer Collective is a Beer of the Month subscription box that will exclusively feature beer from Portland Breweries,” described Banta. Montavilla is host to business operations for the company, but all customer interactions will occur online at the company’s website.
Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) is currently evaluating Rose City Beer Collective’s application for off-premises sales. However, Banta expects the process to be complete by the end of the year. Banta explained that once the license is issued, Rose City Beer Collective will reveal the subscription service details and reach out to potential customers. “We will then do our advertising push hopefully in the month of January and put out our first box in February 2021.”
Although Rose City Beer Collective targets sales beyond the Montavilla neighborhood, they will be a welcomed new business to the community. As more taprooms, microbreweries, and specialty beer sales take hold in the area, Montavilla could soon become a primary destination for the craft beer enthusiast.
