Lowercase Brewing Company first opened their doors back in January of 2014. Of course that was back when their taproom was in South Park, where they shared a building with Burdick Brewery. By early 2016, however, both breweries had a problem. The City of Seattle decided that the building that housed their taprooms was insufficient as it was and required both breweries to make some major and expensive upgrades to the building if they wanted to keep their taprooms there.
Unfortunately this demand was too costly for either brewery, so both taprooms were closed. The breweries themselves could still operate out of their building in South Park, but had to find new taproom locations. Lowercase wasted no time and found a new taproom location on Airport Way South in Georgetown (Burdick has also since found a new taproom space on 14th Avenue South in South Park). After a few construction and licensing delays, Lowercase Brewing’s new Georgetown taproom opened their doors in November of 2016 and now they’re ready to celebrate the taproom’s first anniversary. In addition, Lowercase has announced the launch of a new pop-up coffee shop, Side Hustle Coffee & Doughnuts, which will be operating Thursday through Sundays out of the taproom.
Here is a bit more information from Lowercase Brewing Company:
Can you believe it’s already been one year since we opened up our Georgetown taproom?! Join us for a full day of celebration featuring delicious food, swag giveaways, raffle drawings, and of course…plenty of beer, including the release of a special collaboration beer brewed with our friends Georgetown Brewing. We partnered up to create a super-interesting Italian Pilsner modeled after Birrificio Italiano’s Tipopils. Light and crisp, but with an interesting fruity hop kiss, this beer is both unique and delicious!
Secondly, we have launched a pop-up coffee shop in the morning on Thursday, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays down here in Georgetown. Side Hustle Coffee & Doughnuts will be operating out of our space featuring mini-brioche style doughnuts utilizing our spent grain and cold-brewed coffee beverages from Pier Coffee served up in mason jars! The cold brew is the same coffee we use in our bROWN Ale. The space already looked and felt like a coffee shop, so it was a no brainer to let Side Hustle do their thing in the mornings!
Mark your calendar now for November 18th and come down to Georgetown to help Lowercase celebrate from 11 am to 10 pm. Also, be sure to drop by in the mornings, Thursday through Sunday, for some coffee and doughnuts from Side Hustle. Hours are 7 am – 10 am Thursday and Friday and 9 am – Noon on Saturdays and Sundays.
Also, please note that Lowercase has just updated their taproom hours:
Tuesday thru Friday: 3 pm – 10 pm
Saturday: 11 am – 10 am
Sunday: 11 am – 8 pm
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
