This weekend, last call at Good Brewing Co.’s Hollywood taproom



As we’ve previously reported, the Good BrewingCompany Hollywood Taproom in Woodinville faces closure at the behest of an unfortunate action by King County. The taproom and eight other businesses are being forced to close. Read that story here. This does not impact the brewery’s other locations in Woodinville, Bothell, Monroe, and Sultan.

Why the closure? The shortest version, King County recently created an Adult Beverage Ordinance that will preclude businesses like brewery taprooms from operating in certain places. Good Brewing’s Hollywood Taproom is one of those places. Although “adult beverage” is in the name, it’s really more about land use than alcohol.

This weekend is the last time for you to visit the Hollywood location. It was great while it lasted. Having a brewery taproom in the middle of all those winery tasting rooms was a great palate cleanser if nothing else. Loved the location, sad to see it go. If you cannot visit this weekend, go find Good Brewing at one of the other locations.

  1. “unfortunate action by King County”!?

    What I had heard, and seen in some of the correspondence by King County (all public records, ask for them) was that both Good Brewery Co. and Telhuzhan (property owner) were told that a commercial operation on that location was against past zoning and new zoning. The previous owner had been fined and also been told that a tasting room was illegal at that location.

    Your article seems like gaslighting, but, maybe I am wrong. Please correct me.

    If you want to promote breweries and other tasting rooms, you should be careful not to become the “propaganda” piece of one side or the other. There wasn’t any conspiracy: 8 (or 9?) operators knew it was illegal, they betted on their political connections to get special treatment. (eg. as at the opening of that Woodinville location when owners were asking Woodinville mayor and deputy mayor to annex their property). All businesses should have to follow the law, just like anyone else. It shouldn’t be because you have friends in politics that you get special treatment.

    This is very disappointing in many regards.

  2. Gaslighting? It is unfortunate that this business had to close this location. For the business, it is unfortunate. I did not misrepresent anything. “King County recently created an Adult Beverage Ordinance that will preclude businesses like brewery taprooms from operating in certain places. Good Brewing’s Hollywood Taproom is one of those places. Although “adult beverage” is in the name, it’s really more about land use than alcohol.”

    I made no comment about whether it is good or bad. I completely understand why the County has these rules and do not (personally) disagree with them. At some point, this business and others were approved to operate, so when you accuse them of operating illegally… I did not misrepresent anything and am sorry you turned this into a divisive political issue.
