Odin Brewing Company set up shop about 5 years ago in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood (I’m talking about the brewery itself, not Odin’s Asgard Tavern in Fremont), adhering to the philosophy of brewing beers that would pair great with different foods.
From Odin Brewing:
The Odin Brewing journey begins here. Designing and crafting beers worthy of your dinner table. Beer that will complement your foods, rather than do battle against them. Beer designed for the myriad of culinary options we are blessed with in the Pacific Northwest. Great beer designed with great food in mind!
Since opening, they’ve been quite successful with that philosophy and have been growing rapidly. So much so that they’re running out of space in their current facility. As a result, Odin Brewing Company is now in the process of moving the brewery to a new, 15,000 square foot facility in Tukwila, right by Southcenter Mall and adding a tasting room at the brewery.
Here is the full press release from Odin Brewing Company:
Odin Brewing On The Move!
(for immediate release)
Seattle, WA – June 13, 2014
After 5 successful years in its current facility in South Park, Odin Brewing is relocating and expanding to a 15,000 sq. ft. facility in Tukwila, WA. Located at 402 Baker Boulevard, the new facility offers far more long term potential, both from a brewing as well as a Tasting Room perspective.
“While we have experienced tremendous growth since our inception at our current location, we have become a victim of our own success and have outgrown the facility in South Park faster than we expected”, says Dan Lee, Owner & Founder. “Our production in 2014 is getting squeezed as we simply don’t have the physical space to meet the growth in demand. Our new home in Tukwila is going to afford us the space and facilities we need, in order to continue to grow successfully.”
The new facility will be built out in stages over the next 18 months, beginning with the retail tasting room. “The plans call for over 1500 sq. ft. of retail space, including an indoor patio located in the production hall. We will also enjoy a permanent outdoor patio and ample parking for our guests. The City of Tukwila has been very supportive of our move, and we are excited about becoming a permanent resident.” The official launch date will be announced in the next few weeks.
As for the current 5,000 sq ft facility in South Park, Dan adds, “It’s been a good home for us, and if there is interest from other brewers or breweries that are just starting out, we would be happy to speak with them and work with them about transferring in. This is a great opportunity for a smaller start up brewery to get to the next level quickly.”

This is great news for Odin and for every craft beer lover in the South End. I’m especially happy about it because, once the new brewery/tasting room is open, it will only be about 5 minutes from my house.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
