E9 Brewing Co. & Taproom


Project Type: Adaptive Reuse

Completion: Fall 2018

Project size: 8,950 SF

Location: Tacoma, WA

Recognition: AIA SWW Citation Award

The owners of E9 Brewery were quickly outgrowing their original brewing facilities, a garage adjacent to the historical Engine House No. 9 restaurant, where they had been brewing their local ales since 1995 as the first craft brewery in Tacoma. While the original intention was to supply fresh ale directly to the restaurant, it became clear as their ales grew in local notoriety that they would need a space with a larger capacity.  Coinciding with Tacoma’s creation and administration of the Brewery District, the owners explored the idea of expanding their facilities into the burgeoning neighborhood.
