Jellyfish Brewing Company, which originally aimed to open a taproom in Georgetown in May, says its opening has been pushed back to late summer at the earliest, due to delays with the city’s permitting process.
Meanwhile, Jellyfish is brewing beer and distributing it at various pubs and restaurants around town. Released so far are the company’s flagship Planktonic Red, Smack! IPA, and Saison Memoir. Later this month, the team is planning to roll out Sour Suzie, a dry-hopped kettle sour with blood oranges and grapefruit. Keep an eye on the Jellyfish website and Facebook page for updates on where to get the goods.
Jellyfish is owned by Tom Stevens, who spent time at Big Time Brewery and Alehouse, and Mark Burr, who boasts a 25-year career in beer that includes helping open Water Street Brewing and Alehouse in Port Townsend and co-founding Strange Brew Fest. Stevens and Burr have brought on as head brewer Justin Rizza, who’s worked at Hale’s Ales and Great Divide Brewing Company.
When it opens, Jellyfish will sport a tasting room where you can try its wide range of beer styles, and later, a full restaurant to complement the suds. The venture will be located at 917 South Nebraska Street, between Airport Way S and Corson Ave S.
