Located in Seattle Washington, Mollusk is a craft brewery.
Mollusk Brewing embraces contemporary brewing techniques while recognizing and honoring tradition. We aim to brew memorable beers that showcase an attention to detail and a creative approach. We love that our small size means we can take risks and also serve the freshest possible beer both at our pub and in stores and bars across western Washington.
We see mollusks as our emblem - like beer - mollusks are mind-bogglingly diverse, ranging from the humble slug to incredibly complicated octopus. We highlight that diversity by making the cleanest lagers and the funkiest farmhouses, sharing the soft earthy nuances of noble hops and the bold flavors of modern new world hops.
Some days call for a refreshing session IPA, others require the deep contemplation of a barrel aged sours ale, both make life a bit easier and both are expressions we focus on.
Our brewhouse is an electric powered seven barrel system, being powered by the Columbia river means we're a green operation with nearly zero water waste. With precision control, we are able to produce any style of beer. We package our beers in both draft and 500ml.

MEET THE BREW MASTERS
Born and raised in Seattle, Washington. His first memories of beer were cans of Rainier his father would let him sample. He grew up walking to the Redhook Brewery in Fremont with his father. Cody attended the Evergreen State College. There he studied Philosophy, Art and History and fell in love with homebrewing. In 2009 he founded Epic Ales LLC in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle. It slowly grew from a one barrel system to a three barrel before rebranding to Mollusk and growing to a seven barrel system.
"Beer can be art, where the artist challenges expectations and conventions or it can be a craft, where the craftsperson hones expectations and perfects conventions. It can be either/or, and that is a beautiful thing."
Raised in Yellow Springs, Ohio, Carey moved out west to Seattle to attend University of Washington. He received a BS in chemistry and worked at research lab in Seattle. He had developed a deep appreciation for the vast variety of beer while living near the Stumbling Monk on Capital Hill. He had begun homebrewing when he decided to change careers and work as a professional brewer. His first job was at Northwest Peaks, a nano brewery in the Ballard neighborhood. There he quickly became the headbrewer. He joined Cody at Epic Ales in 2015. His favorite things about brewing is the community, the depth of knowledge and the currents scientific inquiry that adds layers upon layers of complexity everyday.
ABBOT'S PRIVATE RESERVE: Blonde Belgian Quad (11.1 abv). Boozy, rich and spicy. This uniquely dry Belgian Quad won Booze at the 2016 Washington Beer Awards the last time we brewed it. Enjoy now or age for a few years, this decadent brew is perfect for dessert.
KraftTeamWerk UBER PILS: This traditional German Pilsner (5.8 abv) is hopped with brand new German varietals Huel Melon and Saphir. Lightly fruity finish, with a crisp clean bite at the end.
ITCHY PARANORMAL ACCEPTANCE: An IPA (7.8 abv) made with locally grown Copeland Malt and oats. Hopped with Azacca, Citra and Summit for a refreshing blast of pineapple, citrus and pine. For this cask we added a ton of essence of oranges.
SUMMER BROWN: Crisp and refreshing with subtle hints of toasted bread crust and baked cookies. A slight touch of orange marmalade from the British hops.
GRISETTE AMERICANA: Bone dry, earthy with big floral and lemon notes. Rustic with a palate cleansing hoppy bite.
PUB JUICE: Modern west coast pale. Incredibly clean yeast profile with a dry finish. Hopped with Centennial and Mosaic. Hints of citrus, pine and melon rind. Hop forward but balanced
DEXTER DAILY: Perfectly balanced lager. Clean and refreshing with equal parts malt and hops. Old world hops provide a background of coriander and lemons with a slightly grassy finish.
