Brewery Profile - Elliott Bay Brewing Company in Burien, WA
The owners of Elliott Bay Brewing Company met while working at Maritime Pacific Brewing in the mid-1990s. Todd Carden and Brent Norton forged a friendship over beers and discovered that they shared a dream of owning and operating their own brewpub. While working at Maritime Pacific, they also met a brewer named Doug Hindman. In 1997, the first Elliott Bay Brewing location opened in West Seattle. With Hindman making the beer, Carden and Norton brought their dream to life. The rest is history.
The West Seattle brewpub soon earned the hearts of the locals. Conveniently situated in the junction business district, otherwise known as downtown West Seattle, Elliott Bay Brewery Pub quickly became known to locals simply as “the pub.” Not only did they build a reputation based on the award-winning beer, but the pub is also known for its great food and outstanding service. The casual, neighborhood atmosphere is perfect for the neighborhood – a family-friendly destination for an affordable, tasty lunch or dinner accompanied by great beers.
Eventually, Carden and Norton realized that the Elliott Bay Brewing Company formula was ready to be exported to other Seattle neighborhoods. In 2007, Elliott Bay Brewing opened its second brewpub – in the heart of downtown Burien. In 2012, a third location was added in Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood. Each of the locations offers the same recipe for success: great beer, great food, and great service. Each of the locations has it's own brewery. All three of the brewpubs feature beers from the others, but focus on house-made beers.
