Remember last December, when Redhook Brewery announced it would be opening a brewpub on Capitol Hill this fall? That project has been pushed back several months, Redhook representatives tell Eater.
The construction got a late start due to permitting issues, and the company is now targeting March 1 as the opening date. That date could be pushed back again, though, due to the inherent uncertainty of construction project timelines.
Redhook got its start in Seattle in 1981, but moved its operations to the present-day Woodinville brewery and pub in 1998. The company is currently building out its new pub inside the Pike Motorworks building on Capitol Hill at 714 E. Pike Street.
Patrons can expect a line up of familiar Redhook beers, along with small-batch brews exclusive to the Capitol Hill location. The brewery will operate on a 10-barrel system.
"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."
