Residents of Lake City and nearby neighborhoods in northern Seattle, rejoice. Hellbent Brewing is set to open their doors to the public this upcoming Saturday, May 30. Hellbent will join the Lake City arm of Elliott Bay Brewing & the Northgate location of RAM as the only breweries in Seattle located north of 50th St and east of I-5. Somebody smarter can fact check me on that, but it seems like a very under served area of the city.

According to Eater, Hellbent is the product of four partners, including Brian Young as head brewer. Some of you might remember Young from his days at Redhook, Rock Bottom Bellevue & Gordon Biersch. Young brings instant credibility to the brewery. I was very familiar with his work at Rock Bottom Bellevue, including his version of the company’s Hop Bomb IPA, for which he won multiple medals at GABF. At the very least, I expect they’ll hit the ground running in terms of beer quality.

Hellbent is located at 13035 Lake City Way NE and will be open to the public for the first time on Saturday, May 30, from Noon to Midnight. They will start off with three beers on tap: Funky RED Patina, Olympic Hills Spring Ale, and First Born IPA. Hellbent is 21+, so leave the kids at home.

    Looking forward to a new brewery nearby! BTW, a larger under served area is the entire town of Shoreline. We’re very thirsty up here!
