Ale-8-One Bottling Company has worked with the US Post Office to comply with overseas shipments of liquids to military personnel. When shipping to an APO or an FPO we must have the zip code to determine the exact shipping costs as they vary from zone to zone. Submit the military address using our contact form, and our shipping department will get back to you with a quote. Orders are sent parcel post, we can only ship cans, and package arrival takes between 4 and 6 weeks.
Donation requests should be received via email at least two weeks prior to your event. Please email our donations department using our contact form. Please note that all donations, once approved must be picked up at the Ale-8-One Bottling plant located at 25 Carol Road in Winchester during normal visiting hours 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Due to the amount of donation requests we receive we are only able to approve one request, per organization, per calendar year. If we have already approved a donation request for your organization you are welcome to purchase additional product from the plant at a discount.

Ale-8-One has been producing quality beverages for over one hundred years in our hometown of Winchester. To protect the livelihood of our employees and to keep the manufacturing process fully functioning, Ale-8 has made the decision to remain closed to the public. Our company continues to limit the number of people in our facility following social distancing protocol and continues remote work opportunities for employees whenever possible. We are currently evaluating the feasibility of curbside pick-up for company store items and are exploring ways to bring the tour experience to our fans virtually.
