On April 19, 1950, Dale Shintaffer and his wife Elaine followed the family tradition of putting everything on the line in pursuit of a better future when they left good jobs with good futures and purchased a failing bottling company in Bellingham, Washington.
We at Sound Beverage pride ourselves on being local and putting our customers first. Our unprecedented customer service and dedicated employees have earned us our spot in the community as the leading Beer and Wine Wholesaler in our region. We value our employees and take pride in providing many families a spot to call home and excel while raising their families in this great community.
The Shintaffer’s, both through Sound Beverage and outside of the business, have been heavily involved in the community for many years. Sound Beverage has supported Western Washington University through scholarships, athletic support, event sponsorship, and community involvement for many years. Many of the Sound Beverage family are long standing members of local clubs including the local Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, Chamber of Commerce, and others.
