Redhook Brewery will celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2016 with a new brewpub in Seattle’s Capitol Hill. From its humble beginnings in a Ballard transmission shop to its beloved Trolleyman brewpub in a former Fremont trolley barn, Redhook’s newest brewpub will be located in a building on Capitol Hill’s historic auto-row, continuing the brewery’s reputation for transforming historic Seattle sites into popular destinations for beer lovers.
“I’m looking forward to my first ESB in the new brewpub on Capitol Hill,” said Paul Shipman, co-founder of Redhook Ale Brewery. “This new location is a perfect opportunity for Redhook to brew great-tasting, local craft beer in one of Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhoods and to help celebrate Redhook’s 35th anniversary since it first introduced Seattle to craft beer in 1981.”
The Capitol Hill brewpub will feature a 10-bbl brewery where Redhook brewers will brew beer exclusively for the pub and the city of Seattle. Construction is in process, and the new brewpub is scheduled to open in the fall of 2016, just in time to celebrate Redhook’s 35th anniversary. The brewpub will also reflect the spirit of Redhook’s beginnings and create a unique opportunity to experience some Redhook classics such as ESB and Ballard Bitter, alongside innovative small-batch brews, some of which will be available exclusively at the new brewpub location.
“The Redhook brewing team is thrilled to celebrate our 35th anniversary with a new brewpub in the heart of the Emerald City,” said Nick Crandall, lead innovation brewer for Redhook Brewery. “I can’t wait to begin brewing new, creative and experimental beers at the new Seattle brewery. We’re also looking forward to the opportunity to connect with the community and continue partnering with great local businesses like Caffe Vita. Creating distinctive collaborative brews such as Double Black Stout ties all the goodness of Seattle together. This is what makes being a craft brewer so great – working with great people who really love what they do every day.”
