Which U.S. cities have the most breweries per capita?

Washington Beer News - Fri, 06/28/2019 - 10:42am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


The folks at C+R Research recently compiled a list of the cities with the most breweries per capita. Seattle is home to about 60 breweries. That’s a lot for one city. Still, Seattle did not make this list. While Seattle has a lot of breweries, it also a lot of people. The study measured more than 500 cities in the United States with more than 50,000 people. The ranking is based on the number of breweries per 50,000 people.

Two Washington cities made the list. Bellingham ranked 17th with seven breweries per 50,000 people and Yakima ranked 23rd with six breweries per 50,000 people. By my quick calculations, using my own data, Seattle has about four breweries per 50,000 people, as do Vancouver and Tacoma. Spokane has about three.

Understandably, it isn’t easy for a large city to make this list. In the end, only four cities with populations larger than 250,000 made the list: Denver, Madison, Portland (OR), and Cincinnati.


Portland, Maine, which is at the top of the list, has 18 breweries per 50,000 people. To get an idea of that city’s density of breweries, consider this: Bothell, Burien, and Olympia are examples of cities in Washington with a population of about 50,000. Imagine one of those cities having 18 breweries. Ballard, of course, blows all of this out of the water, with a dozen breweries and 24,000 people, the equivalent of nearly 24 breweries per 50,000 people. Alas, Ballard is not a city and is too small for consideration in this study regardless.

As with anything like this, it depends on the data source. C+R used data from SteadyServ Technologies. Specifically, SteadyServ Technologies’ BreweryDB. You can read more about the study and the methodology here.

  1. Portland, Maine (18 breweries per 50,000 people)
  2. Asheville, North Carolina (17)
  3. Bend, Oregon (16)
  4. Boulder, Colorado (14
  5. Kalamazoo, Michigan (10)

Brewery or Brewpub opportunity at Lake Chelan

Washington Beer News - Thu, 06/27/2019 - 9:44am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


There’s been a lot of chatter lately about things like brewery overcrowding and market saturation. These are legitimate concerns, but there has also been plenty of data showing that more and more consumers are visiting breweries each year, and those consumers report drinking more beer. (See our story.) One aspect of the industry that remains unchanged, a brewery or brewpub that serves a local community and doesn’t aspire to take over the world is still a viable business venture.

Location, location, location. What you’re looking for is a dark spot on the map and a community that is underserved. You’re looking for built-in clientele. Not just a neighborhood or village that wants to drink beer, but a community that wants a gathering space where they can do it. Also, vacation destinations are advantageous as more and more people seek out local beer while traveling.

(Photos from Facebook and Instagram.)

Not long ago I learned of one such opportunity when I was contacted by the developer of a new community near the town of Chelan, Washington. This could be a good fit for a new business venture or for an established brewery looking for a second (or third) location. The Lookout, located on the shores of Lake Chelan, currently features almost 100 vacation homes and has a space designated for a brewery, taproom or a brewpub. The property already has permits. The developers are eager to have a brewery help anchor the community. No arm wrestling or tug-o-war. They want a brewery.

“We now have a beautiful brewpub building designed and permitted,” says Ted Schroth of The Lookout and GTS Development. “The custom building would be brand new and available for delivery next spring. We have almost 100 homes completed right next door so there’s a built-in customer base of about 600-800 people per day in summer, not to mention 10,000 car trips per day on the adjacent state highway.”

The Lookout at Lake Chelan is described as a lakeside village. The community was inspired by historically memorable towns like Waterville, Cashmere, and downtown Chelan – places with a strong sense of community and a slower pace of life.

Located about two miles north of the town of Chelan, on the lake’s eastern shore, The Lookout Village plans to offer the following, and they’d love to add “brewery” to the list.

  • 70-Slip Marina
  • Sandy Beach Cove
  • Swimming Pool
  • Hot Tub
  • Parks
  • Pickleball & Bocce Courts
  • Outdoor Kitchens & Fireplaces
  • Fire Pits
  • Playground
  • Trails
  • Bike Track
  • Dog-Friendly Community

Interested parties can reach out to Ted Schroth directly.

Also, they’re bringing back the very popular Beer Junction coloring book contest. On top of that, they’ll show two episodes of Twilight Zone.

Okay, that’s better – Top 30 places to open a new brewery

Washington Beer News - Tue, 06/25/2019 - 12:55pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


Last week we posted a story about a recent study that aimed to determine the best places in the U.S. to open a new brewery. Spoiler alert! There were some flaws with their methodology, flaws that some of you were quick to recognize. I don’t know if anyone else noticed, but I contacted the organization that conducted the study and told them about the issues. I wondered how things would shake out if the corrections were made.

The original list of 25 included just one Washington city, Seattle, which ranked 25th. After the corrections, Washington has seven cities in the top 30. Somerville, MA is still at the top of the list and Colorado still has the most cities on the list.

The study examined two aspects of opening a new brewery: business environment and business cost. Of course, there are multiple considerations within each of those broader topics.

You can see the original post here, which talks a bit about the miscalculation we discovered.

You can learn more about the report and the methodology here.

Here is the list as corrected:

  1. Somerville, MA
  2. Madison, WI
  3. Seattle, WA
  4. Denver, CO
  5. Longmont, CO
  6. Loveland, CO
  7. Portland, OR
  8. Royal Oak, MI
  9. La Crosse, WI
  10. Fort Collins, CO
  11. Missoula, MT
  12. Bellingham, WA
  13. Bostan, MA
  14. Fredrick, MD
  15. Vancouver, WA
  16. Scottsdale, AZ
  17. Bellevue, WA
  18. Boulder, CO
  19. Colorado Springs, CO
  20. Eugene, OR
  21. Tacoma, WA
  22. Bend, OR
  23. Milwaukee, WI
  24. Portland, ME

Beer touring in Duluth, Minnesota

Washington Beer News - Tue, 06/25/2019 - 7:41am

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+ Big Ships and Great Beers on the Shores of Lake Superior

Story by Kendall Jones. Photos by Kim Sharpe Jones

It’s a very Duluthian thing to do, and it pairs nicely with a Duluth-brewed beer. Even for the locals who’ve seen it dozens of times, it never gets old. As a big freighter approaches the harbor, steaming in from across the expanses of Lake Superior, people gather around the canal. A loud bell clamors as the aerial lift bridge is raised. The ship’s crew stands dutifully on the deck, waving at the spectators who’ve gathered to watch another 1,000-footer pass through the narrow, manmade channel between the lake and the harbor, moving quicker than you’d imagine, so close that it seems you could reach out and high-five the crew as the behemoth passes by.

When you visit Duluth, Minnesota you simply must make time to go down to Canal Park to witness this magnificent feat of maritime engineering and seamanship. After you’ve seen a ship that is longer than a football field pass through a canal that is only about 80 yards wide, you’ll be ready for a beer. Luckily, Hoops Brewing is just two blocks down the street. (When will the big boats be there? Check out the online schedule. )

Duluth is home to eight breweries, with some others in the nearby area, including two in the town of Superior, Wisconsin, just a couple miles away across the bay. Here are the beery highlights from my recent visit to Duluth.

Shootin’ Some Hoops

No, it’s not a typo. The name is Hoops Brewing, not hops. The brewery’s namesake, Dave Hoops, was a brewer at a nearby Fitzger’s Brewhouse for 17 years. Now he’s the brewmaster at his very own brewery but admits the real work is done by head brewer Melissa Rainville, who he recruited from the aforementioned Fitzger’s Brewhouse.

At any given time you’ll find as many as 30 different beers on tap at this 250-seat beer hall. Yep, it’s a big ‘un. A 250-seater! Hoops Brewing doesn’t aim for wide distribution but instead focuses on providing the local beer community with a continually rotating selection of beers and beer styles.

It’s not surprising that the beer is so good once you know a bit about the man behind it. Dave Hoops is a Duluth native and a graduate of the University of Minnesota Duluth. He attended the Seibel Institute in Chicago, apprenticed at Goose Island Brewing, was the head brewer at Pyramid Brewing in Berkeley, California, and eventually returned home to Duluth for a long stint at Fitzgers Brewhouse. After that, he and some partners started a successful brewery consulting business. That’s some serious street cred in the beer world.

I was particularly impressed with Hoops’ lagers. The Helles and the Pilsner were both exceptional. Light and refreshing, with crisp malt flavors. The pilsner, as it should, offered more hop character. Light, refreshing beers are great, but I’ve never been one to shy away from a robust, boozy beer bomb, like the Cognac Barrel Aged Wheat Wine, which tipped the scales at 13 percent ABV.

No food on the menu, but you’ll find plenty of restaurants in the nearby area and you’re welcome to bring it with you. Kids welcome.

Hoops Brewing
325 S Lake Ave
Duluth, MN 55802

Bend That Paddle

Bent Paddle Brewing is located in an industrial part of town now known as the Lincoln Park Craft District, as are two other breweries, a couple cider makers, various food producers, and an assortment of other artisan businesses. Since it’s opening in 2013, Bent Paddle Brewing has grown into one of the larger breweries in the state. Not surprising given the quality of the beer. Last I heard, it ranked sixth.

In 2017 Bent Paddle Brewing opened a spacious new taproom in a big old building just a block away from the existing brewery. It’s a warehouse-style taproom, with a large yet cozy main room where tables are comfortably scattered beneath large, rough-hewn beams. Out front, a partially covered patio that once served as the loading dock at the Enger and Olsen furniture warehouse.

The taproom does not serve food, but plenty of local restaurants will deliver to your table. Might I suggest a delicious, meaty sandwich from nearby Corktown Deli? Other patrons opted for BBQ-fare from OMC Smokehouse.

The flagship beers are solid, like the Kanu Session Pale Ale, which clocks in at 4.8 percent ABV but packs the hop-forward character you might expect in an IPA. Those flagship beers, and especially the Bent IPA, are widely available across Minnesota, so focus on less-common creations when you visit the brewery’s taproom, like the Wilderness Tuxedo, a sour ale with mango and guava, or whatever other, less-common beers you find on the menu. Kids welcome but dogs are not.

Bent Paddle Brewing
1832 W Michigan St
Duluth, MN 55806

The Little Bear (Ursa Minor)

Ursa Minor Brewing, also located in the Lincoln Park Craft District, is a quickly rising star on Duluth’s beer scene. According to the local beer nerds, when the brewery opened in 2018 it took a while to get up to speed, which is not unusual for a new brewery, but today the beers are excellent.

With 28 taps, most of which are dedicated to house-brewed beers, fed by a relatively diminutive five-barrel brewing system, expect lots of one-and-done beers. Rotation is the name of the game, but some beers are featured frequently.

The Lillydipper is a great, low-ABV (5.0 percent) pale ale with gobs of hop flavor. Helmet Hair NE-Style IPA is not as hazy as many, but just as fruity and hop-centric.

The kitchen is proud of its wood-fired pizzas and the menu includes a few other noshable options. Outside, the patio is large with fire pits for the colder months, of which there are plenty in Duluth. Stubborn Duluth Pale Ale is a nod to the kind of fortitude it takes to live this far north, on the banks of the largest lake in the world (by area) that creates its own weather. Family friendly, dogs are welcome to accompany their well-behaved masters on the patio.

We All Ride the Same Earth

A couple miles South of Duluth, across the bay, Earth Rider Brewing operates its brewery and tasting room in Superior, Wisconsin. The brewery is over there, but the tasting room is over here, less than a block away. The tasting room, called The Cedar Lounge, is a free-standing, two-story, old brick building that you might mistake for a neighborhood dive bar at first glance. No doubt this watering hole has stories to tell and secrets to keep.

Stepping inside, the Cedar Lounge is as comfortable as your oldest, best-loved pair of blue jeans. It just feels right. You can easily imagine that once upon a time, long before the craft beer revolution swept across America, this was a place where hard-working people with calloused hands and dirty work boots came to wash away the worries of the day.

The beers range from expected styles, like Superior Pale Ale and Caribou Lake IPA, to more creative concoctions like a Scotch Ale aged in whiskey barrels from a local distillery and a coffee pale ale brewed with coffee from a nearby roaster. Curiously, I found another Cognac beer—Cognac Barrel Aged North Tower Stout—the second Cognac-aged beer I encountered during my three-day beer tour.

We happened to wander in during an afterparty for the local roller derby team. The atmosphere was festive, to say the least, despite the team having lost the bout. Food options are limited. Not much beyond bar snacks and some pub pizzas. Family-friendly before 8:00 P.M.

Earth Rider Brewing
1016, 1617 N 3rd St
Superior, WI 54880

Danger Ahead!

Located about 30 minutes north of Duluth on the “north shore” of Lake Superior, Castle Danger Brewing operates its brewery and tasting room in the small community of Two Harbors. If you spend any time at all in Minnesota you’ll very likely come across Castle Danger Cream Ale, one of the state’s most ubiquitous craft beers.

It is worth the drive up to Castle Danger for the beer alone, but taking a drive up the lakeshore is its own reward. The locals and the tourism board refer to this area as The North Shore. Stay off the expressway and take the old highway—known as Scenic Drive, Congdon Blvd., or old 61. Stop at Kendall’s Smoke House and get some smoked fish, cheese, and crackers. Stop at Great Lakes Candy Kitchen for some chocolate treats. You’ll thank me later.

Once you and your recently acquired picnic snacks arrive at Castle Danger, relax in the expansive, park-like beer garden. Play some cornhole and enjoy the lake view. Dawdle away the hours as you sip on delicious beers of all kinds. The Ode IPA and the Cream Ale are always safe bets, but consider something that will pair better with your chocolate treats, like George Hunter Nitro Stout or the Baltic Porter aged in Jack Daniels barrels. Families, dogs, all are welcome.

Castle Danger Brewing
17 7th St
Two Harbors, MN 55616
