About this project

"West Pale"
"West Pale"

Two and a half years in the making, West Seattle Brewing Co. has truly been a labor of love. Though a slow progression while working nights to sustain the project, we've proven by now that we can survive and even grow on a shoestring, that we can do ALL required construction with our own hands and that we can create brews that people love and that our neighborhood partners are proud to carry. We are anxious now to move on to the next phase and open our doors to the public. With an amazing location, including parking and potential outdoor seating (all too rare in West Seattle) we're only $20,000 away from making this charming tasting room a reality for us all. A haven for soccer fans, the homebrewing community, of course beer connoisseurs, and with a platform for musicians and artists to share their work, we cannot wait to bring this place to life!  

As we keep telling ourselves here: "the Beer must flow!"

Risks and challenges

Our primary challenge is going to be timing the Liquor Control Boards final walk through to be as close to the construction finishing as possible. Getting an idea for current wait times will help us as we approach completion. If we wait until we're done to call, we could be sitting up to a month, ready, but unable to open the doors! This is what happened with our TTB Brewers' Notice, LCB application and our lease. If we hadn't taken the lease we would have lost the space. But in signing the lease, it meant we had to sit and pay rent for 6 months before we could even sell ANYTHING! The amount of work to do will still undoubtedly be challenging at times, but this is the fun part for us and as that goes, the consequence for any real delays will just mean a week or two later Grand Opening. We are however well conditioned by now to working long days; and EVERY day, and expect to be all the more driven behind the inspiration of this final push.
