Mi Casa Es Su Casa

My home is your home...???

It seems odd to say that you have license to something we continue to put so much time, money, blood, sweat, and tears into.  But when you really think about it that's exactly how things are and should be.

We aren't doing this because we think it will be so much fun to spend the majority of our free time cleaning kegs or calculating yeast viability. When it comes to those things, the reality is we would much rather be be sitting at one of Washington's 200-plus breweries sipping on a pint. 

Sure we want to have a successful business that turns a profit. Who doesn't? However, if that were all we were after I don't think we'd make it. Talk to any accomplished, grown from grass roots businessman, they will all tell you the same thing. There has got to be an underlying passion. There has got to be an intangible value that gives you the drive to push through. For us, that passion is you. The vision of you walking through our doors and ordering up your favorite brew or sitting in a pub, laying eyes on our tap handle and saying 'I'll have a Wet Coast' is the essence of why we are doing this.   

So, yes...mi casa es su casa! 

As you can see in the photos above our casa needs some love. In the coming weeks we will begin the next phase of the Wet Coast Brewing Co. progression, CONSTRUCTION! It has been a long time coming but we are finally here.  Our Conditional Use Permit was approved at the beginning of September and since then we've been finalizing plans with architects, contractors and various government types so we can break ground ASAP.  We are excited beyond belief for you to see what we have in store for the brewery and tasting room!  

Lastly,  this week we posted a link on Facebook and Twitter for a documentary called "Crafting A Nation." It does a fantastic job of documenting the trials and tribulations of a startup brewery (Black Shirt Brewing) that we can completely identify with as well as tales from some of the forefathers of craft beer in the US. Check it out at or watch on Hulu.

All Aboard!

It's been said that a rising tide raises all ships, and we at Wet Coast believe we're joining the craft brewing business at exactly the right time!  Just like a beautiful wave crests before its big break, so does the current momentum in our brewing efforts. Right now we are filled with anticipation (and beer, of course) as we have recently solicited investments so that we can ride this wave into the next stage of business - brewing enough beer for you all to enjoy!  If getting in on the action during this integral phase and contributing towards the rise of Wet Coast Brewing sounds like an opportunity you'd like to know more about, we'd love to share a pint and our official plans with you.

And, yes, it has been all together too long since we last updated our blog.  But fear not, we've been keeping busy behind the scenes working on all aspects of this venture. We promise, you won't have to wait so long next time to get a little taste of the Wet Coast!
