What is (and is not) inside the bottle
Natural Grocers cares about what their customers put in their bodies and how those decisions impact human health and the planet, so they only source alcoholic beverages from producers who prioritize healthy ingredients, sustainable practices and local economies.
Certified Organic: Cottage Wine and Craft Beer prioritizes organic certification across all beverage categories, curating the largest organic selection possible. The shop carries only 100 percent organic wines and some wineries that have Demeter Biodynamic Certification. Natural Grocers works with wine producers who share its commitment to self-sustaining and regenerative agriculture and its benefits – soil health, biodiversity and improving the environment.
Gluten-Free: The shop offers a comprehensive inventory of gluten-free and gluten-reduced beer, as well as gluten-free alcoholic kombucha and seltzers.
Local: Natural Grocers sources high-quality craft beer, brewed with homegrown ingredients. Most of the inventory comes from local breweries – hyper-local whenever possible, but certainly from within the state or region.
Nutritional Value: Organic wine contains an average of 32 percent more of the antioxidant, resveratrol, than conventional varieties. Craft beer, brewed with pure ingredients and processes, offers some nutritional value as well, including B vitamins and bone-supporting nutrients like silicon.
Cottage Wine and Craft Beer selections are GMO free and don’t contain the hidden junk often found in mass-produced brews, including high-fructose corn syrup, MSG, artificial additives and propylene glycol.
“By adding Cottage Craft Beer and Wine to our Klamath Falls store, we are now truly offering the community a one-stop grocery shopping solution,” said Kemper Isely, Natural Grocers’ co-president. “We are excited to provide this new service to our customers so that they can now get all the ingredients they need for a healthy meal, add in a beer or wine pairing and stop by the supplement department to pick up some milk thistle and other liver-supporting formulas.”
Founded in Colorado in 1955, Natural Grocers has more than 3,500 employees and operates 159 stores in 20 states.
