Urban Family Brewing – Community Focused, Innovative Beer

Thank you to Urban Family Brewing for letting us hang out with them! We had an awesome time.

Urban Family is a whole new brewery from when it opened boasting the same great name. We talked about Andy’s journey in taking it over with Isaac, essentially rebooting the brewery. We talked beer (of course), distribution, brewing, community, and creativity.

From their website:

We’re a small craft brewery located in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. We have an eclectic focus on creating beer and strive constantly for innovation. You may not see the same beer every time you visit but we try to utilize fresh ingredients, complex yeast strains, and interesting hop profiles.

We were founded on the principles of creating something as a family. Working together to make beer that represents who we are, and what we love. We may not all be related, but family is what you make it.

They did not brew the same beer twice in 2017!

Furthermore, we ate cheese together.

Also, Patrick is a marine biologist, he wants a centrifuge, and he hates the music you listened to in high school.
