Seattle Mariners fans are perhaps the most die-hard sports fans in our city. We could all probably learn a lesson or two about dedication and commitment from them. And now, their undying love is paying off in a big way. The Seattle Mariners are completely revamping the old Pyramid Brewing site as a game-day destination for fans.
The team has signed a long-term lease to run the old Pyramid Brewing site which is conveniently located across the street from the stadium. According to a release shared with Curiocity, the new and improved space will be completely renovated and retrofitted. The massive 30,000 sqft venue will be home to a restaurant and boutique brewpub and flexible interior event space for up to 800 people.
Not to mention, future plans may include “community space made available to support businesses with women and Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) ownership.” Beyond being a great game day destination and venue space, the building is part of investing in the neighborhood’s health and economic vitality. The future goal is to have the space be a place where there are economic opportunities and equitable outcomes for the broader community as a whole.
One of the ways that the team is starting to look towards supporting the community is by including BIPOC and women-owned companies in all aspects of the venue’s creation. Not to mention, when the venue is completed, a main feature will be Steelheads Alley, named after the 1946 Seattle Negro League team. The alley will feature brews from Resident Brewery Métier Brewing Company, Washington’s first black-owned brewery.
The alley will serve as the venue’s boutique brewery and will be situated between the restaurant and event space. And when it comes to the restaurant you can expect PNW fare with locally sourced ingredients. You’ll also be surrounded by décor paying tribute to the teams and players from the Negro Leagues.
What’s even better about this exciting news is that the team aims to have the venue open by July or August 2022. When you think about it, that’s really not too far away. So get excited, we have a feeling even non-Mariners fans will be checking this space out.
