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.

MAGNUSON CAFE AND BREWERY ANNOUNCED
MAGNUSON CAFE AND BREWERY IS A TRIPLE THREAT WITH HAND-CRAFTED FOOD, MOLLUSK BREWING AND A LARGE DECK ON LAKE WASHINGTON
For Immediate Release
Seattle, WA, May 22, 2018 – Magnuson Cafe & Brewery, from the group behind Dexter Brewhouse and Mollusk Brewing in South Lake Union, is set to open in Magnuson Park early summer 2018.
The family-friendly restaurant, offering hand-crafted food and 16 beers on tap, is located on the northern shoreline of Magnuson Park, and will feature a large outdoor deck with multiple levels overlooking Lake Washington. The outdoor area will include a dog-friendly area as well as a retractable shade structure. Atelier Drome Architecture + Interior Design, along with general contractor James Company, worked closely with Cody Cluff, owner of Magnuson Cafe & Brewery, to bring an intentionally understated design utilizing materials like a reclaimed Douglas Fir wood wall and metal elements, allowing the historic building from the Naval Air Station Seattle to shine through.
“Magnuson Cafe & Brewery will be a truly Northwest beer-focused dining and drinking experience,” said Cody Cluff, owner of Dexter Brewhouse, Magnuson Cafe & Brewery, and Mollusk Brewing. “I’m very excited to share the large outdoor deck on Lake Washington in one of Seattle’s most historic parks and see our community enjoying themselves, soaking up the Seattle sun along with great food and beer.”
Jon Langley, Executive Chef & Director of Kitchen Operations, has created a menu that’s designed to be approachable, fresh, and familiar consisting of American brewpub food with a Northwest influence. The restaurant will offer elevated pub grub as well as summer-friendly dishes including seasonally-inspired pastas, pork carnitas tacos & farm-fresh salads. Weekend brunch will be a focus for the restaurant offering crowd favorites like avocado toast and mimosas, to classics like breakfast burritos and biscuits & gravy. A brunch-friendly drink list will also be available on weekends.
Mollusk Brewing will expand brewing capacity with a second brewhouse under the same roof as the restaurant. “Being able to have two breweries operating together is a game changer and will allow us to produce beer for our restaurants, as well as increase our presence throughout the Pacific Northwest.” says brewmaster Cody Morris.
The restaurant and brewery will be located at 7777 62nd Ave NE, occupying historic Building 20, previously used for torpedo storage long ago, is the first of its kind in the park. Magnuson Cafe and Brewery looks forward to partnering with other local organizations such as Sail Sand Point, Cascade Bicycle Club, the Mountaineers, Arena Sports, the Magnuson Athletic Club, Seattle Parks & Rec, NOAA and others.
