About the "Center of Excellence" 

The City is working with a team of partners to incentivize redevelopment of the brewery site and build on the historic brand. The Craft Brewing and Distilling Center would be a “Center of Excellence” for the rapidly growing brewing and distilling industries in Washington. There are 405 craft breweries in Washington; an industry that has grown by 17.6% in 2014 and represents a $19.6 billion economic impact according to the Brewers Association. Craft distilleries, which have only been allowed since 2008, now number over 89 with applications pending for a dozen more. 

The Center of Excellence would have a regional focus to facilitate craft brewing and distilling activities, extend industry research, education, workforce training, and public information.  Such a facility would serve as an incubator for small brewers and distillers and provide public amenities such as a museum, river walk, trail connections, and preservation of the iconic and historic Old Brewhouse.
