Kendall Jones of the Washington Beer Blog reports that new brewery Emerald City Brewing is setting up shop in the Old Rainier Brewery at 3100 Airport Way South. It will occupy space formerly held by Tully’s Coffee, which has moved to a new roasting plant.
According to Jones, Emerald City will be a lager-focused brewery and "each different beer that they produce will feature a different girl and each girl will in some way reflect the character of the beer."
The flagship beer, an amber lager called Dottie’s Seattle Lager, is named after brewer Rick Hewitt’s grandmother. The label design is pictured here. So. Now you know what to bring nana next time you are visiting her in the nursing home.
Look for Emerald City beers to debut at the Washington Brewers Festival in June.
