Beer has always flowed in Seattle, but in recent times, this drink has enjoyed a surge in popularity, with the Ballard neighborhood as the latest epicenter of new microbreweries. How has this micro-industry re-appropriated the neighborhood and shaped its community culture. What challenges and design issues arose during the rehabilitation of Ballard’s old buildings into breweries?
