As we reported last May, Odin Brewing Company opened a second location in Tacoma. This, in addition to its production facility and taproom in Tukwila. Now we share the news that the company will close its Tukwila location at the end of July 2021 and operate another location in Tacoma. So, as of August of this year, two Tacoma locations, but no Tukwila location.
Odin Brewing opened in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood in 2009. Then, in 2013, the company opened a second location, a satellite taproom called Asgard Tavern near Gasworks Park in Seattle. That was fairly short-lived. Next, in 2016, the company packed up and moved the brewery to Tukwila, where they also had a taproom. In May of 2020, they opened another second location, this time in Tacoma, as mentioned above, but continued to operate the production brewery and taproom in Tukwila. Phew… I think I got all of that straight.
Now it sounds like the company has found a forever home in Tacoma, though they have not yet announced exactly where, or any other details.
“There is bad news and good news,” said Odin Brewing’s owner, Dan Lee, on social media today. “Partially due to this pandemic, we find ourselves having to move out of Tukwila by the end of July 2021.”
“That’s the bad news,” he continues. “The good news is that we have now secured a new location that will become the new home for Odin Brewing Company for many decades to come. As of Aug 1, we will be operating out of the beautiful City of Tacoma. More details to follow in future posts.”
The current location in Tacoma is a full-service restaurant at the former home of the Harmon Hub in the city’s Stadium District. Odin Brewing operates the upstairs restaurant while Northwest Brewing operates its taproom downstairs. Read more about that relationship.
“We want to thank the many customers, employees, suppliers, partners, who have been with us on this journey so far. We need you now more than ever for the next chapter. I personally want to thank the great folks at City of Tukwila, Tukwila PD and Tukwila FD for being great partners. As Dorothy said to Scarecrow, “I think I will miss you most of all.””
“Finally, to our new friends and neighbors in Pierce County, we can’t wait to become a much more integral part of your already great community.”
