Queen Anne Brewery
Established: March 1995
2012 Brewery Production: 138 batches • 1,643 kegs • 203,732 pints
McMenamins brewpub on Roy Street in Seattle opened its doors and began brewing in March 1995. With a brewery that's in full view (and within arm's length) of diners, McMenamins Queen Anne offers an intimate and ongoing study of the brewing arts and sciences. In a sense it is a 'fish bowl' brewery (think: Lighthouse, Oak Hills) without the bowl. Which can make things mighty exciting sometimes...
With the lineage of colorful characters conducting business in the open air brewery (including Matt Stromberg, Jeff "Bones" Thomas, Tim "Roy" Streeter, Tony Balzola and current brew master Brian Lawrence) Queen Anne can boast of an equally colorful history of ales crossing the bar. Brian's Monkeywrench and Paeter's Porter are current house favorites.
Of the many fine brews crafted here, it is notable that original house brewer Tom Goodham's chamomile infused Wedding Ale is still talked about among Queen Anne's circle of regulars. That's there is some staying power.
