Charging Hippo Spotted Near Seattle

submit to reddit

Charging Hippo Brewing is bent on its plan to become the first brewery in Shoreline. Not just up there, north of Seattle, but actually in the city of Shoreline. To that end, they’ve been shopping for viable commercial space for the past year and a half. As of yet, they’ve been unsuccessful, but now they just want to get brewing. So that’s what they’re doing.

“We’ve been looking for a space for the past 1 1/2 years in the Shoreline area,” said Kyle Stevens of Charging Hippo Brewing. “Though we are determined to become Shoreline’s first brewery in the city proper, we’ve decided to go ahead and start brewing small batches to introduce ourselves to the Seattle market with an event during Seattle Beer Week (too be announced) leading up to finding a more permanent location.”
