Founded by Crayne and Mary Horton and a few dozen local investors, Fish began operations humbly. With a 15-barrel brew house, two 15-barrel fermenters, and one dairy tank, we brewed for our neighbors up and down Puget Sound. Growing steadily since, Fish is now an award-winning craft brewer with distribution throughout the great Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Today, three distinct brands make their home under Fish Brewing's roof. In the beginning there were Fish Tale Ales, English-style beers born in our brewpub on Jefferson Street. It wasn't long before our brewery outgrew its cradle, though. So in 1996, we moved brewing operations across Jefferson Street and into the historic and spacious Skoog Building.
