12 new Washington craft breweries. Is one opening near you?

The Brewers Association recently reported that 100 new breweries opened in the U.S. since July 2009. That’s a pretty amazing number. If new craft breweries are a nationwide trend, then Washington is riding atop that foamy wave of sudsy goodness. Last year more than a dozen new Washington craft breweries fired up their kettles for the first time. It was difficult to keep track of all the new breweries opening in 2009 and the trend is not slowing down in 2010.

Below is a list of recent applications for, and approvals of, new brewery licenses in Washington. If you are affiliated with any of the following, we’d love to talk to you and tell your story to the world (email us).

  1. It’s a sign of a healthy market when so many breweries open up outside Seattle. It shows that the good beer wave is lapping all shores. Very impressive, Washington!

  2. I love that you post these from time to time. Its very cool to see what is out there. I’m particularly intrigued with the two Poulsbo applications. Coupled with Valholl Brewery and Rook Brewery might make that an attractive place to visit.
