We are getting there!

Thanks to everyone who has been inquiring on our grand re-opening.  We promise, it is getting closer and closer.  Like imminent even.  We are getting ready to build our rooftop deck, and the brewing system is up and running!  We can't wait to share more - as soon as we have something concrete, we promise, you will be the first to know.

In the meantime - enjoy this EPIC Seattle summer and dream of Beer on the Roof!!

Rooftop has a new location!

After several months, we are excited to finally announce our new location - we will be opening a 15-BBL brewery and tasting room at 1220 W. Nickerson St. in Queen Anne, just down the road from our original garage!

There is still plenty of work to be done, but we’re looking forward to opening a new tasting room and rooftop deck (finally!) and brewing beer ready for distribution in and around Seattle by this May, 2015. 

We can’t wait to share our beer with you at the new space. Stay tuned here and on Facebook and Twitter for more details about how things are progressing.

Saying Goodbye to the Garage...

It's with much excitement and sadness what we launch into the last weekend of operations at the little garage in the alley behind 7-Eleven. If you haven't heard, we're moving out and moving on up:

In order to keep up with demand, Rooftop Brewing Company is expanding its production capabilities from a 1-barrel to a 15-barrel brewhouse. As part of this expansion, Rooftop will be moving into a larger brewing space and opening a true “Rooftop” beer garden, on top of an actual rooftop! 

While we are excited to be opening in a new space, it will be sad to say goodbye to our little garage in the alley behind the 7-ElevenOur lease expires at our current location at the end of September, 2014, and we have decided not to renew so that we can focus on opening our new space. 

Rooftop is taking a short hiatus between closing its current space and opening the new. We hope to open the new space, still in the Queen Anne neighborhood, in early 2015! We will keep you updated on the various interwebs (www/Facebook/Twitter). 

That means that this weekend is it! Last chance to soak up the copious amount of good vibes that we've discovered in our little garage. 

Here's what's to know regarding the final weekend.

  • LIQUID-ation: If you bring in your Rooftop pint glass, we'll be pouring beers into it for just $3! Consider it a 'thank you' for your love and loyalty.
