About Us

Hi there, we’re the Porter/Ward family, and we’re happy you’re here!  We run and operate our family-owned sparkling hop water business, PNW Hop Water, out of the beautiful city of Spokane, in Eastern Washington.




Wanting to drink less alcohol, but still have a refreshing beverage that had the essence of craft beers, we turned to hop water.  When co-founder Jerry, started brewing his own, we immediately knew he was on to something special and unique.  After trying over 50 different recipes, we landed on the original Hoppy flavor, using hops from Yakima Valley farms just a few hours from Spokane.  Organic extracts proved a natural fit to make it more approachable for non beer drinkers, and we landed on Grapefruit, Tangerine and Yuzu as additional flavors.


We started selling our beverages over the summer of 2022, at a weekly local Farmers Market, and the business has taken off from there!  You can now find us at a handful of specialty stores and grocery locations in Spokane.

Crack open a cold bubbly can to enjoy on it’s own, or mix into a refreshing cocktail or mocktail.  Along with being intentionally alcohol free, it also just so happens to be free of sugar, calories, carbs, and is vegan and gluten free; making it a healthy choice you can feel good about.  From our family to yours, cheers!
