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.
