Reasons to Invest

Overview


Seattle welcomes Here Today Brewing to the Waterfront 


Here Today Brewery & Kitchen is a hospitality-focused brewery and restaurant - here at the right place and right time. 


That’s because our brewery is located on the Seattle waterfront, which is about to undergo a $700 million expansion project. (Source) We believe this puts us right at the center of an impending influx of tourism and local community.


g

Our team's combined 30+ years of experience operating breweries, bars, and restaurants of all sizes have prepared us to create this memorable brewpub. How? We believe that years after visiting us, a guest may not remember exactly what they ate or drank, but they will remember how we made them feel. For this reason, we focus on the concept of enlightened hospitality: no matter what brings people in, our empathetic style of service will leave them feeling cared for.


the problem


Elevating the Seattle Waterfront 


We are looking to fill a void for fine beverages and food along the tourist-dense Seattle waterfront. 


As the waterfront undergoes an enormous upgrade, we think the food and beverage experience should see one too. That's where we come in.

the solution


Landmark meeting place meets warm hospitality 


We believe we are poised to become a landmark destination on the Seattle waterfront.


And when it comes to making memories, we believe warmth creates indelibility. Our focus on hospitality and service are likely to set us apart, and we are eager to deliver beyond the normal experience to beverage enthusiasts and tourists alike.

In addition to serving house-made beverages and food to guests in-house, we will maintain a healthy outside sales account list consisting of influential bars and restaurants in the Seattle area. 


When it comes to our business model, it’s similar to notable small breweries in the area. What makes us unique is our service of lunch and dinner, dedication to hospitality, and focus on in-house revenues which we believe will carry a higher profitability.

the market


Breweries have been thriving, even amid the Pandemic


Even in the midst of the pandemic, more than 9,000 breweries operated in the US in 2021, making a 6% increase in 2020. A total of 710 breweries opened during that year too, against 176 closures (Source).

 

The $700 million waterfront expansion project is due to be completed in 2024, 1.5 years after our project is planned to open. Not only are we part of a thriving market, but we believe we are about to become part of a bustling landmark. There were 6.7 million visitors to the Seattle waterfront in 2010, and those numbers are expected to surpass 20 Million by 2024 (Source).

Our market of potential guests includes beverage enthusiasts and locals from all walks of life, but this expected jump in tourism is sure to be a boon to our numbers for much of the year.

Our traction


We are federally permitted to brew beer! 


We began construction at the beginning of January 2022 and have already been recognized as Imbibe Magazine’s 75 drinks businesses to watch in 2022 (Source).


Our CEO, Chris Elford, previously founded noteworthy Seattle bars like No Anchor, Navy Strength, Vinnie’s Wine Shop. With this kind of leadership, it’s no surprise our team has also achieved Spirited Awards, Eater Awards, and James Beard nominations.


We have secured our dream spot in a prime location - designed by award-winning firm SHKS Architects in our new waterfront home. ( Source

why invest


We are eager to become a destination landmark on the new Seattle waterfront


Our goal is to create community through well-crafted beer - a memorable brewpub experience with a focus on warm hospitality. 



Success to us looks like our investors realizing their investments, staff that is happy and well-compensated, and an integrated community thriving alongside us. We hope to ultimately open up two other “taprooms” in the greater Seattle area to further grow this sense of community.


This funding is to create a safety net of operating capital available should we need to draw on it in the crucial first few years of business. The waterfront is only expanding once – and we think we have the advantage of being one of the first new independent creative fine beverage purveyors on this waterfront.

Big News!

about 2 months ago

Hey y'all,

We've been head-down working hard in the space to get past a few big milestones and we checked some big ones off the list this week!

We received our liquor license and temporary certificate of occupancy which gives us the all clear to begin brewing! Mario will have beer in tanks in the next few days which puts us on track for an anticipated end of September opening. 

This coincides well with the end of our round of fundraising on StartEngine, set to end on September 20. We've crossed the $100k threshold and are more than halfway to our goal of $250,000. We'll have a couple informational sessions via zoom and instagram over the next few weeks, please join us at one! If you have questions feel free to comment below.

We're so excited to be this close to opening — the bar is ready, beer is brewing, all that's missing is you!

Cheers,

Texas Dave
