This Wednesday, March 1st Fast Fashion Brewing releases the first beer created at its own facility. It is not the brewery’s first beer by any stretch, but Here and Nowhere Else IPA is the first created at its new brewery in Seattle. It’s a milestone for the company.
About a month ago, Fast Fashion Brewing opened its taproom in Seattle’s Lower Queen Anne neighborhood. Another milestone. That’s where they’ll celebrate the release of Here and Nowhere Else IPA.
Many local beer lovers are already familiar with this slightly mysterious brewery, which describes itself as a hop-forward brewery focusing on hazy IPAs and other hoppy creations. Since arriving on the scene in 2020, Fast Fashion Brewing produced its beers nomad-style, brewing the beers at other breweries. The beers were Fast Fashion’s concepts, recipes, and efforts, but were brewed at other breweries. Straight away, the brewery impressed anyone lucky enough to get the beers.
Fast Fashion Brewing recently built its own brewery in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood, a couple blocks south of T-Mobile Park on First Avenue South. Here and Nowhere Else IPA is the first beer from that new facility. The SoDo location will eventually include a taproom of its own, and we’ll make sure you know when that plan comes to fruition, but for now, the best place to get Fast Fashion’s beers is at the taproom in Lower Queen Anne.
Another thing you should know about Fast Fashion Brewing, one of the partners in the business is Brian Strumke, the creative mind behind Stillwater Artisanal. Also a nomadic brewery (perhaps the most widely recognized nomad brewery), Stillwater has worked with breweries around the world. Last October we told the story of how this nomad was settling down in Washington.
A few weeks ago, Fast Fashion Brewing opened its taproom in Seattle’s Lower Queen Anne neighborhood. The taproom is right next to The Masonry, the beer-focused pizza joint. The Masonry and Fast Fashion are joined at the hip, with the same owners involved in both businesses. That’s why The Masonry has always been the best place to happen upon Fast Fashion beers. Cans of the beers, when available, found their way to better beer retailers around the area, where the public quickly gobbled them up.
“This Wednesday is our first new beer release at the Queen Anne Fast Fashion Tasting Room (16 Roy St) and we’re throwing a party!” Fast Fashion announced on social media. “Here and Nowhere Else IPA is the first beer brewed in our new SoDo space. We’re very excited about all of these things. Come in Wednesday and help us celebrate our new tasting room and brewery space and the first Fast Fashion IPA in our new home.”
Here and Nowhere Else IPA in 4-packs and on tap starting at 3:00. Karaoke from 6-10pm. Free popcorn all day.
