A few months ago, while sitting in an alehouse reviewing information on breweries listed in the back of this book on Northwest Beer, I found something telling.
Using a mapping program like Google Maps or Live Search I found what happend to some of the breweries. More to the point I figured out where they were. In some cases the breweries do exist they just relocated (ex. Pike, Hales, Redhook, etc.). In other cases the brewery no long exists.
Its actually quite telling in regards to concentration of breweries. Much like Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, and even Bellevue, we gravitate to where the most convience exists and in beer, its no shock that there are more breweries in Seattle than in Sunnyside.
I won't ramble on much more instead I will leave the below map for you to look at for your enjoyment. And if you see any that you think should be added lemme know and I will add it to my list.
