Redhook is returning to its roots and opening a new brewpub in the heart of the city where it was born. (Pictured at right, the Redhook crew delivered the first keg of beer more than 30 years ago.)
Washington is now home to more than 300 breweries and Redhook Ale Brewery is the oldest. In fact, Redhook is one of the oldest craft breweries in America. Today there are over 4,000 breweries scattered from sea to shining sea, but back in the days when you could count all of America’s craft breweries on your fingers, Redhook was one of them. As it approaches its 35th anniversary, the company is about to make an official announcement that will put smiles on the faces of Seattle’s craft beer oldsters.
