Born in the dorm rooms of Pomona College and nurtured beneath the evergreens of Bothell, Watts Brewing Company is the joyful capitulation to what some would call a "hobby" and others an obsession with all things beer.Â
Like many craft brewers before him, Founder and Head Brewer, Evan Watts, brewed his first batch of beer over a turkey-fryer in his driveway. It wasn't very good. Undeterred, Evan brewed another batch, and then another... If you give a mouse a cookie, he'll want a glass of milk to go with it. If you teach a man to brew, he'll want a brewery to go with it. After a few years, a couple of (thousand) batches, and some exhaustive product testing on unsuspecting family members, friends, and colleagues, that brewery is here; the second-hand, Frankenstein brewing kit has given way to a custom-built 1 bbl brewhouse with enough precision to make a German blush.
We are currently putting the finishing touches on our facility and recipes, clearing the last regulatory hurdles, and preparing for our official launch in summer 2016. Â At that point you will be able to find our beers on draft at local bars and restaurants, or available by the keg for parties and events.
