I’m in Seattle, WA. Almost in the shadow of the Ballard Bridge, there is a brewery with an excellent view. RoofTop Brewing Company started in a garage in 2012, but always had a dream of becoming a place where you can enjoy a pint on a rooftop. I spoke with the head of operations Craig Christian.
Traditionally craft beer has been in glass bottles, but in recent years there has been an increase in the number of craft beer canned products. When starting a brewery, a major cost can be the bottling or canning line. West Coast Canning in Vancouver, BC provide the solution with their mobile canning lines. I spoke with co-owner Matt Leslie about how they started, and if cans are better for craft beer.

I’ve traveled down I-5 in Washington State to the city of Everett. Home to the Boeing Assembly plant, this area has seen growth in recent years, including the craft beer scene. Starting in the back shed in 2009, Justice Brewing is a one man project which is seeing some major expansion later this year.
