Woodinville– Métier Brewing Company, a new Woodinville brewery and taproom, will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday, July 7, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, food trucks, family activities and ample tastings of its locally crafted beers.
Family and bike-friendly brewery and taproom prides itself on community, inclusivity and
damn good beer
The community is invited to join the festivities from noon to 9 p.m. and sample MBC’s brews on tap, including four distinctive and balanced IPAs, a refreshing, light sour Berliner Weisse, and its Coconut Porter, which recently earned a silver medal at the Washington Beer Awards. The kid-friendly venue also offers a guest cider, root beer on draft, and in-house nitro cold brew coffee.
At 1 p.m., Woodinville Mayor James Evans and the Woodinville Chamber, along with brewery founders Rodney Hines and Todd Herriott and brewmaster Bob Thorpe, will kick off the festivities with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Puft Bubble Wafflesand Lovage Catering food trucks will be on hand until 5 p.m.
“We’re launching MBC with a clear mission in mind – to brew damn good beer and build stronger community to inspire bigger dreams for all,” Hines said. “For us, that starts with exceptional brews of course, but also means creating an inclusive and fun environment to connect with friends and family. And customers will be able to join us in our philanthropic efforts aimed to help others less fortunate to imagine bigger dreams.”
As the U.S. director of social impact for Starbucks, Hines is well-versed in the inherent value of creating spaces that support authentic community-building – and the power of a shared beverage to bring people together. He and Herriott, founder of Métier Racing & Coffee in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, created Métier Brewing with a focus on building a friendly team, strong with diversity aimed to widen the aperture of who brews and drinks craft beer.
“Our vision for MBC is to offer a great community gathering space, where families, cyclists, craft-beer fans, wine country visitors, and others can come together to raise a pint. We’re really looking forward to establishing the brewery as a hub for local and regional cyclists of all abilities and will serve as a launch point and destination for organized rides, year-round,” Herriott said.
Métier Brewing is located in Woodinville’s Artisan Hill area near the Winery Warehouse District, in the former Des Voignes Cellars location. The 6,000 square-foot space includes a completely renovated taproom, Métier’s seven-barrel brewery system, plenty of seating and free parking for groups and events, a dedicated kids area and an outdoor patio, coming soon.
Those who appreciate a well-crafted brew also can find MBC beers at more than 30 premier restaurantsand bars throughout the Puget Sound region.
