Brewery Owner Shares His Learnings Moving from Homebrewer to Professional Brewer in Seattle WA
Chris Smith has grown from homebrewer to professional brewer and, in the process, expanded from brewing 5 gallons of beer at a time to 500. His brewery, Lowercase Brewing, opened its doors in January of 2014, and is located in the South Park area of Seattle Washington. Since then, he has also opened a taproom in Georgetown. Lowercase’s passion is brewing simple, approachable beers. Chris has been quoted as saying: “We got our start making beer in our basement, and seeing what our friends thought of it. After a little trial and error, the beer started tasting pretty good.” Recently, Chris took the time to share his thoughts with Portland Kettle Works regarding his journey from homebrewer to professional brewer.
