We first published this story about Flycaster Brewing back in March. A deal was penned, but I recently learned that the deal fell through, so the brewery is still available (as of August 17). Also, I want to point out that I know of another brewery that is currently for sale (brewery, taproom, the whole thing). They didn’t want me to publish that story, but if you are a serious candidate (not just curious beer drinker) you can contact me via our contact page and I will make the appropriate introductions.
This is a rare opportunity to step into a turnkey brewery. Flycaster Brewing Company of Kirkland, Washington is up for sale. Jeremy Eubanks, the owner/brewer at Flycaster, cites family commitments and a need to expand the business as the primary reason for selling the brewery. Flycaster’s brewery and tasting room is located near Totem Lake Mall in Kirkland
Flycaster Brewing opening in 2014 as Kirkland’s first brewery, starting out as nano brewery operating on a Sabco BrewMagic system, producing just 10 gallons at a time. In 2016 they expanded and installed a 3.5-barrel system from Practical Fusion. The new system includes a pair of seven-barrel jacketed fermenters and a glycol system that can support a total of eight fermenters.
They are selling the turnkey brewery with the branding, systems, recipes and the built-out tasting room.
According to the listing on Probrewer.com:
“Due to family commitments and the need for additional capital to keep the brewery growing we decided that we will need to allow another owner / owner group to take the brewery to the next level. Recommendations is to continue to add fermenters and focus on distribution in to the local market. The current system can hold up to 6 more fermenters without needed to modify the brew system.”
Interested parties should email flycasterbrewing @ hotmail.com for the full offering document. Serious inquires only.
Here’s some more information straight from Jeremy Eubanks:
“Why the sell? Really two reasons; first is the time it takes away from the family while still working full time at Expedia with 3 kids (6, 8, 12) its time for me to be around more. This is also not allowing me the time to grow it into the next phase at the level I want. The other is that the brewery is growing and need another round of investment in equipment to continue the growth. ”
“Options on the sell? We prefer to sell it Turnkey where we sell out the build out and everything stays in place. It would allow the new owners to start brewery tomorrow if they wanted. We are also taking offerings on the brewery equipment if we don’t get anything on the whole brewery.”
“Timeline on the sell? We would like to wrap it up by end of April.”
