Forged in Seattle
The idea of Holy Mountain was forged in an industrial space in south Seattle–what was formerly Alaska Copper Works on East Marginal Way. A group of homebrewers who were running out of space, especially for barrel projects, pooled resources to rent a small section of the warehouse. Almost a Speakeasy in a way, epic parties were thrown and mass quantities of beers were consumed by the members and their friends. Among the blacksmiths, metal fabricators, knife makers, artists and band practice rooms, the space became a proving ground for recipes and techniques that would shape the beginnings of Holy Mountain. The same ideals and DIY scrappiness of this foundation still hold strong to the brewery today.
Lager, Hops, Oak and Brett
We focus on brewing into oak and stainless steel, and can boast of being the original oak and barrel focused brewery in Seattle. These days, we switch easily between putting lager and hoppy beer in cans, filling bottles of naturally carbonated mixed fermentation beer, and blending bourbon barrels of strong, rich and dark beer. Inspired by the bountiful agricultural offerings of the Pacific Northwest and all of its beauty, we celebrate and draw off of music, nature and art and are obviously fascinated by the occult.
