A rare opportunity to purchase a turnkey brewing operation in the burgeoning Vancouver, Washington craft beer market has arisen. The Heavy Metal Brewing Co. is a full service brewpub and bottleshop in up-and-coming Vancouver, Washington that is now on sale for just $249,000. While The Heavy Metal Brewing Co. is not a well known brand, the brewpub actually has a lot going for it: on-site parking, a full stage for live music, an enclosed back patio, 25 taps and a 15-door cooler with bottles to-go, all that on top of the in-house 7-bbl brew system.
Heavy Metal Brewing Co. owner Dave Miner told us that he is selling the pub for a variety of reasons including the rising minimum wage and labor laws. Adding that, “We lease this location and feel it would be allot better to bee in a location / situation where we could own the building which won’t happen here.”
