Lake City is starting to become a beer destination. Elliott Bay Brewing Co. and The Beer Authority already attract a healthy crowd from across north Seattle to their successful establishments. Add to that list Lake City’s soon to open Hellbent Brewing Company.
The future brewery has been under construction since October of 2014, but just now, as an illuminated sign has been installed and brewing equipment can be seen inside, has the project become obvious along Lake City Way.
The brewery is a project by partners Brian Young, Jack Guinn, Chris Giles and Randy Embernate. The roughly 7,500 square-foot space across Lake City Way from Fred Meyer will feature a tasting room, an upper level lounge with games including pinball, pool tables and televisions.
The interior is accented with aged and reclaimed wood, steel and wrought iron. The tasting room features a pair of gorgeous, milled madrone trees as the bartop.
One of the business partners owns the building, which previously was a manufacturing business and decades ago was said to be a Chinese restaurant.
Hellbent will have a tavern license and will feature rotating food trucks in their back lot. They also eventually hope to have a patio area for use during warm months. A cold storage facility will take up part of the rear of the property.
Hellbent is in the final stages of construction and the business’s owners hope to be open in about one month.
You can take a virtual tour of the Hellbent Brewing in the video below.
Below the Hellbent team made a fun video showing some of the construction.

Lake City Future First recently wrapped up their first ‘World of Tastes’ passport program where people that visited neighborhood businesses received stamps on a “passport.” Those that completed the passport were then eligible for a prize. The goal of the program was to encourage people to discover some of Lake City’s diverse neighborhood offerings. (Previous coverage here.)
Participating businesses included Mania Manila, Elliot Bay Brewing Co., Pho An, Erawan Bankok Thai, Lake City Gyros, Beer Authority, and Kaffeeklatsch.
From Lake City Future First:
Congratulations to Larissa and Joseph, the winners of our very first “World of Tastes in Lake City” passport program. Larissa and Joseph will enjoy their $50 gift cards courtesy of Kaffeeklatsch, Elliot Bay Brewery, and Lake City Future First as well as 10 free yoga classes from Two Dog Yoga.
A special thanks to all the businesses and the people of Lake City who participated. Be on the lookout for our second “World of Tastes in Lake City” in the next few months featuring new tastes and more prizes.
