Seattle’s first black-owned brewery opens in March
Seattle has an amazing selection of local craft breweries, but none of them are black-owned so far. Metier Brewing Company is opening Seattle’s first black-owned brewery in the Central District in March. Let’s go into some details.
The new bar is set to open at 2616 E Cherry Street and breathes new life into a building that was once a car garage. Visitors will be able to enjoy a selection of beers from Metier like their Coconut Porter, Belgian Golden, Kolsch, Belgian Wit, and there may also be small beers created by E Cherry. Visitors will also be able to sample food from Umami Kushi, a black-owned Japanese street food vendor.

It’s a welcome addition to Seattle as a whole but also to the Central District, a historically black neighborhood that has seen increased gentrification during Seattle’s development boom in recent years. With a mission to brew “good goddamn beer” and “build a stronger community,” Metier will be a new favorite hangout for many Seattle residents.
