Back in December, we introduced you to The Good Society Brewery and Public House, a coming-soon brewery slated to open in West Seattle (see that post). Now we share the news that the brewery opens for business this Friday, February 14th.
We stopped by last night for a preview and liked everything we found. The space is lovely, filled with custom-built communal tables with tabletops fashioned from repurposed bowling lanes. Also, the room features well-executed lighting and high, whitewashed ceilings with exposed beams.
The beers are solid. Though they have not yet pushed a lot of boundaries, all of the beers were true to style and without flaws, which is about all you can ask of a brand new brewery that is serving its first batches of beer. A blonde, a brown, a pale ale, an IPA, and a CDA. I was particularly impressed with the CDA, a style of beer that is too often unimpressive. Another IPA is in the tank and should be available soon.
A good thing to know before you go, a portion of the proceeds from the beer you buy will be donated to charity. Thus, The Good Society. Currently, they are supporting two causes: the West Seattle Food Bank and Forterra. When you open a tab, or buy a beer, they’ll ask which you’d like to support.
The kitchen is not fully up and running yet, but they are serving a few things, just not full-on entrees yet. The Good Society Brewery and Public House is family-friendly, which makes a lot of sense if you are familiar with the neighborhood and the people who live there. In fact, the brewery is right across the street from Lafayette Elementary School.
