Columbia Distributing is one of the nation’s largest malt beverage, wine and non-alcoholic distributors. The company officially began in 1935, when Chris Maletis, Sr. had a vision to distribute beer and wine products serving Oregon, Washington, and northern California. From this vision Columbia Distributing was born and, several acquisitions and mergers later, went on to distribute some of the best-known brands in the beverage distributors in the country. Recognized as one of the top companies in the country, Columbia Distributing is one of the largest private employers in the Northwest. Moreover, a great leadership team and a “give-back-to-the-communities” philosophy has earned the company a strong presence.
