I recently had a conversation with someone looking to open up a brewery in Seattle who asked me what I think the Seattle beer scene could use more of. I know my answer, but what do you all think? Choose up to 3 selections below.

Many breweries rely on six-pack sales to generate a large percentage of their revenue.
