Gig Harbor, WA - As we were consuming our daily allotment of news we spotted this one (and are admittedly a few days late drawing attention to it).
"Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal 2303: 7 Seas Brewing Expands Mike Runion and Travis Guterson take their beer seriously. So seriously, that the two 20-somethings decided to partner up about three years ago to bring a microbrewery to Gig Harbor. 7 Seas Brewing (www.7seasbrewing.com), not yet a year old, has been doing so well, it’s already expanded its brewing capacity. And in another month, the two entrepreneurs will charter new territory: 7 Seas will become the first microbrewery in Washington state to can its beer.
It hasn’t been a completely smooth road. Last year, the brewery was devastated by a fire. Located in downtown Gig Harbor at the time, 7 Seas lost as much as 80 percent of its equipment to the blaze. They were a day away from their building inspection and about six weeks away from starting production. Instead of contemplating what they’re going to do, the two partners rolled up their sleeves to start rebuilding their infrastructure, and found a new location, next to the Inn at Gig Harbor." -source, Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal
