Located just around the corner from Georgetown’s historic old City Hall, is Lowercase Brewing, voted the 2019 “mid-sized brewery of the year” at the Washington Beer Awards. Quite an honor for this new, 15-barrel steam fired brewery. The brewers want to make a beer they enjoy drinking and enjoy it in a comfortable relaxing environment. They also wanted to brew beers that could compete in Seattle’s craft brewing world. They spent months brewing small batches in their basement trying out new recipes and tweaking flavors. When they were satisfied they had the beers they wanted, they did what every broke brewer does, they went on Kickstarter. The result is their Georgetown brewery.
The philosophy at Lowercase is simplicity. They start by keeping the ingredients simple by using locally sourced malts from Skagit Valley Malting and Northwest hops. They use the least amount of ingredients possible to allow each unique style and ingredient to shine through. Their menu reflects classic styles designed to appeal to every preference with a large cross section of light, hoppy, dark and malty beers. They don’t want to be a laboratory or science lab; they just want to make great beers.
One of their specialties is to offer lagers year-round. Historically craft breweries shied away from lagers because they often took two to three times longer to brew than a typical ale. Well-crafted lagers have been increasingly popular, and Lowercase has made them a specialty. Don’t worry, you will always find a great variety of IPAs, ales, dark malty beers and seasonal favorites along with an award-winning Mexican Lager or Italian Pilsner. So, sit down and enjoy the simple pleasures of a well crafted beer at Lowercase Brewing. For more information visit the Lowercase website.
