I recently visited Seattle, the “Emerald City”, located on Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest. While it may be known for the surrounding water, mountains and evergreen forests, Seattle has no shortage of quality craft breweries.
One of my favorite stops in Seattle was Holy Mountain Brewing Company. Located in the Interbay neighborhood of Seattle, Holy Mountain opened in October 2014 and has gotten the attention of local beer drinkers ever since.
Owners Adam Paysse, Colin Lenfesty and Mike Murphy bring experience from various breweries and distilleries, and managed to open Holy Mountain borrowing money only from friends and families.
Warning: You will want to try every beer on the list. And while there are no flights or samplers, beers are offered in half and full pours.
Every batch of the house pale ale Kiln & Cone is different, so be sure to enjoy the latest batch while it lasts. I also recommend Fellowcraft, a 5.5% ABV Barrel Aged Brett Pale Ale, a refreshing pale ale that was aged in oak for three months with mixed Brettanomyces culture then dry hopped generously with Centennial and Amarillo.
There are non-alcoholic beverages available, as well as unique snacks. The Goat, a Foudre Aged Rustic Brett Saison and Witchfinder, a Brett Saison, were available to go in bottles during our visit.
You must be 21 or older to visit the taproom, and pets are not allowed. The taproom is open Monday to Thursday 3 to 9 PM, Friday and Saturday noon to 10 PM, and Sunday noon to 9 PM. There is a small parking lot, best accessed from the alley between the building and the train tracks.
