Auburn’s Geaux Brewing announces plans to relocate across town
The other day on Facebook, Geaux Brewing announced that it is moving to a new location in Auburn. In the video, the brewery’s proprietor and founder, Jeremy Hubbel, explains that they’ve been looking to relocate for quite some time, but their efforts were hampered by the pandemic. Hampered but not thwarted!
He explains that, for now, Geaux Brewing’s existing taproom and kitchen remains open in downtown Auburn but the brewery has indeed found its future home. This is the second time the brewery will relocate in the past few years. It was February of 2018 that Geaux Brewing celebrated its grand opening at the current location. The original brewery and taproom opened in Bellevue back in 2013.
Jeremy told the Auburn Examiner, “The move has already started. We’ve moved nearly all brewing equipment out and will work to get that back online as soon as possible at the new spot. That said, it’ll take about 60 days to get our license to serve alcohol, so, in the meantime, we will remain open for as long as possible on Main St.”
According to the report in the Auburn Examiner, Geaux Brewing is moving to a location a couple miles north of downtown. The new brewery and taproom will be just north of Auburn Municipal Airport. More details forthcoming.
Why move? Apparently, it has to do with renovations to the building as much as anything else. It seems the current location’s building is facing a renovation plan and it would be difficult for Geaux to stay open during that disruption. Jeremy told the Examiner, “You know how the saying goes, it’s complicated.”
Here’s the Google Maps street view of the new address.
What we do know, the new location is two stories and it is large. The address is 3205 C St. NE, Bldg 1, Auburn WA.
