Back in February, I told you about another new craft brewery coming to Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. That brewery is called Bad Jimmy’s Brewing Company, and they’ve been making some great progress in preparation for their opening.
It takes quite a bit of work to launch a brewery. Starting with an empty space, you usually need to add plumbing, refrigeration, fermentation tanks, your brewing system, etc., and there are several city licensing requirements and inspections you must pass as well before you can open your doors to the public. At this point, Bad Jimmy’s has passed the majority of licensing hurdles and are now deep into the ‘build out’ of the brewery. The bar is in place, the back bar is just about finished and their brewing system should be arriving any day now, at which point they can get going on brewing their initial batches in preparation for opening day.
