Subdued Brewing is Bellingham’s newest brewery, but it is a long way off from becoming a reality. Opening a brewery takes time. Just ask Fairhaven Stones Throw Brewing or Gruff Brewing. Permitting, funding and renovations all have to fall into place at the right time.
Subdued Brewing is somewhere between permitting and funding and they are just starting both. Last night at the Community Food Co-op’s meeting room on Forest St, the owners of Subdued, Dave Morales and Chris McClanahan, held a public meeting to discuss their intentions and plans for the proposed space at 2404 Elms St, or Gifford’s Market. It was a well attended meeting with about 35 community members making it standing room only.
