Beer lovers, rejoice! Another MarketFront milestone has been reached as twin grain silos were installed at Old Stove Brewing Company's future home. We visited the site with Old Stove co-founders Chris Moore and Brian Stan to learn more about the silos' role in the brewing process. Check out the video below.
With the expansion, Pike Place regulars welcome a new craft brewery to the neighborhood. At Old Stove Brewing Company, thirsty patrons will sip pints in a brew house and gastropub designed to make the most of the MarketFront’s open-air feel, with an 80-foot window-wall showcasing an expansive view of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains visible from Western Avenue. While soaking up the sea breeze and counting sailboats, diners have a front row seat to the milling, mashing, graining, and fermenting process, and of course, the final step, drinking the finished product. Chris Moore and Brian Stan plan to have 20 house-made rotating beers on tap, including the brewery’s flagships, and the pub menu will highlight locally sourced seasonal ingredients. The place may even influence future generations of craft brewers— the brewpub will be open to tykes, as well as their parents. A summer weekend field trip never sounded so good.
