Last September, Lowercase Brewing Company was one of many breweries I mentioned in a Craft Beer Monger feature article about Great Reasons To Check Out Seattle’s South End Breweries. They’ve been operating out of a space in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood since January 2014, but in early 2016 Lowercase found out they would have to close their taproom in South Park, so they started looking for a new location, and they found one in Georgetown.
Since then, they’ve been working hard to get the new Georgetown taproom ready for business. Some initial permitting delays pushed back their original opening date but now they’re ready for their big reveal. Lowercase Brewing is pleased to announced that the grand opening for their new taproom, on Airport Way in Georgetown, will be next Friday, November 11th starting at 4 pm.
I’ve been looking forward to this opening, as have many others. With the addition of Lowercase Brewing Company, the Georgetown neighborhood is really becoming a great destination for some craft beer adventures. Georgetown already has Georgetown Brewing Company (of course), Machine House Brewery and Counterbalance Brewing Company (a Beveridge Place Pub Hoptoberfest finalist – winner announced Thursday), and Full Throttle Bottles will be adding taps in early 2017 (full disclosure – I’m a part time employee at Full Throttle Bottles).
In addition, I recently found out about another new brewery coming to Georgetown. Jellyfish Brewing Company is setting up on S. Nebraska Street, right off Corson. Also, don’t forget that Two Beers Brewing Company, Schooner Exact Brewing Company, Ghostfish Brewing Company and Seapine Brewing Company are all just a short jaunt North from there. With so many breweries in such a concentrated area, Georgetown and SoDo are rivaling Ballard as the neighborhood(s) to visit when you’re in the mood for a craft brewery/taproom crawl.
Lowercase Brewing’s actual brewery will remain in their original South Park location, and the taproom move has even allowed them to expand. They’ve upgraded to a new 15 barrel brewing system and added a bunch of new fermenters. So, all in all, having to move the taproom seems to be working out well for Lowercase.
