Goings-on at work may have me heading up to Walla Walla, Washington, for a night in the next few weeks, and out of curiosity I thought I’d check online and see if there are any breweries up there. (Wineries abound; Walla Walla is lately reinventing itself as a top wine region.)
Turns out there is one: Mill Creek Brewpub. Only problem is, it’s for sale! So I’m not sure if that means they’re still open or not; if I end up going to Walla Walla, I’ll call them to see. At any rate, the going price is $650,000. Doesn’t seem like a terrible deal for what they’re offering:
The 6,100 square foot free-standing building, built from the ground up in June, 1997, sits on a 13,000 square foot lot and features an outside patio and river-rock fireplace. The full service restaurant seats 159 people. A hard liquor license was added in March of 2004, and retail sales have increased approximately 15% per month. All equipment was purchased new in 1997, including the seven barrel brew house.
