More proof that local breweries aren’t flying: Two new independent taprooms will open in western Washington this week. Indeed, things seem to be changing more rapidly in the brewery scene. Things are changing. Some breweries have closed, some have rebranded, some have exited and some have reopened. Like fast fashion and sleeve brewing (pictured above).
Fast fashion opens in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood
Yesterday, Fast Fashion announced on social media that its much-anticipated taproom has opened in Lower Queen Anne. and were available in the Lower Queen Anne. Today, they open their own taproom right next door to The Masonry Queen Anne at 16 Roy Street in Seattle.
The taproom is open Wednesday through Sunday from 3pm to 10pm, with a slight delay when events are held at the nearby Climate Pledge Arena. I haven’t really put my head into it yet, but from the photos it looks like there is a communal pub table for 20+ people. 21+ if open late). They will have hot dogs and veggie dogs, and they welcome eating out.
It’s no coincidence that fast fashion has always been based at The Masonry. One of his two brewery owners, Matt Storm is also the owner of The Masonry. Co-owner of his brewery, Brian Strumke, is also the owner/brewer of Stillwater, with a reputation for innovative beers centered around the Hazy IPA.
Three Bull Brewing taproom opens in Snohomish
It’s been a while since I’ve been to the Three Bull Brewing taproom. A brewer, in 1998 he started home brewing with a 20 gallon home brew system. They upgraded to his 7 barrel system and have been an official and active brewery in Snohomish since 2013. Last Friday they cut the tape at their first ever taproom.
The 21+ Taproom is located at 127 Ave C in Snohomish. Our current hours of operation are Friday-Saturday 2-10pm, Sunday 2-7pm, Monday-Wednesday 4-8pm, Thursday 4-9pm and closed Tuesday. As always, check our social media for updates on opening hours, food trucks and other special events. Also – audiophiles rejoice – Three Bull shares a building with Stargazer Records.
