Starting Up Stories
Having grown up between Sisters Oregon and the Netherlands I witnessed in Europe a refillable ecosystem that was thriving and I was shocked to find that the United States is the only industrialized country without a commercial scale refillable glass bottle system. Even Oregon’s own OBRC Bottle Drop Company beer Refillables are exported and washed in Canada! This was the catalyst for starting Revino.
