Airways Brewing Announces 2014 Expansion Plans In Downtown Kent, WA

From Airways Brewing:

KENT, Wash. (January 31, 2014) – Airways Brewing Company today announced expansion and remodel plans for their Beer & Bistro, located in downtown Kent. This second location for Airways Brewing opened on November 1, 2011, and continues to draw craft beer lovers from around the country to the downtown area, earning the Best Economic Engine award from the Kent Downtown Partnership in 2013.

“The Bistro was something different for us and we didn’t know quite know what to expect,” said Alex Dittmar, founder and head brewer at Airways Brewing Company. “We took our already strong brand and built a solid reputation for quality. Thanks to our fantastic customers, we’ve decided to grow in downtown Kent and I think people are going to love what we have planned.”

The expanded restaurant will bring seating capacity from 35 to 150 seats. The additional space will include a family friendly seating area, while the current space will be remodeled and remain 21+.

A 3,000 square foot patio will be transformed into a gated garden space for outdoor music and entertainment, and year-round use thanks to fire pit tables and retractable awnings. A dilapidated kiosk out front will be stripped and rebuilt to house a grill and smoker as well as potential bar seating.

“We’re very excited about what these changes mean for our company, and the team that has helped build it,” said co-owner Dione Dittmar. “We also feel that our expansion fits in well with the City of Kent’s long-term plans for the area, as well as demand from Kent residents for more restaurants and retail in the heart of downtown.”

Construction is planned in two phases, starting in the next few weeks to make sure the outdoor area is ready for summer. The indoor construction is planned to start this summer.

Airways Brewing Company is working with Raven Commercial Real Estate as the developer of this property. Raven Commercial Real Estate is a full service commercial real estate firm focused on opportunities in the Pacific Northwest.
