A couple months ago we reported that Jeff Smiley, the owner of Seattle’s Baron Brewing, intended to move his operation about 100 mile south to a new location in Chehalis, WA. (Read that story.) While many of our regular readers were interested to hear that Baron was moving to a new location, a broader audience was excited to hear that a turn-key brewery was for sale in Seattle. Today we have more details about that aspect of the story.
Baron Brewing has been located in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood since 2003. Jeff says that he is not interested in “piecing out” the brewery. He’s taking his 30 bbl equipment with him and leaving the complete 7 bbl system behind. Understandably, he is only interested in hearing from serious buyers.
Here is the deal in Jeff words:
I’m going to be moving my brewery from Seattle to Chehalis. As part of the move I’m selling our operating 7bbl brewery in Southpark. I’m going to be taking our 30bbl equipment and moving it to the Chehalis brewery and leaving all the 7bbl equipment in place to allow a brewer to walk in the door and start brewing immediately. The price is $275,00 to $475,000 depending on what equipment is wanted. Pictures available at flickr.com. Search on Flickr Member “baron brewing”. I’m not looking to sell individual pieces of equipment. Please don’t have anyone contact me unless they have funding. Contact: [email protected]
