Washington welcomes another brewpub.

After three years of careful planning and another year of construction, the Leavenworth Brewery, in Leavenworth, WA, opened its doors September 24, pouring Octoberfest beer, German Alt beer, and a Golden Ale.

The Bavarian-styled building, brewery and 200-seat restaurant is located in the heart of Leavenworth's Bavarian Village. The village is set in the Cascade mountain range, two hours northeast of Seattle.

Residents of Leavenworth for the last 10 years, Scott and Laura Hansen opened a restaurant called Winzig's Burgerhaus before deciding that the Bavarian Village was an appropriate setting for a German-style brewery.

After many construction delays, ranging from giant boulders that hindered footing excavation, to a financially troubled construction company, the brewery began to produce beers in the German and Northwest styles from its solid copper, dome-topped, 12-barrel brewkettle and brewhouse.
