Irrelevant Beer Opening
As the driving force behind Irrelevant Beer, Sebastian Lynch is no stranger to the brewing industry. Leveraging his experience at Trap Door Brewing, Lynch, alongside Mitch Montgomery, owner of Relevant Coffee and head brewer Quin Tinling, is determined to bring an innovative brewery to life.
Lynch and his team trusted MARKS, securing a high-quality, direct-fired 10-barrel brewhouse. This investment demonstrates their commitment to quality, precision, and American-made equipment, setting the tone for the exceptional brews they aspire to create.
Irrelevant Beer’s brewing facility, nestled next to the Relevant Coffee shop, is designed to blend seamlessly with the surrounding area. The brewery aims to offer diverse beer styles, many incorporating coffee concentrates from Relevant Coffee for a unique twist on traditional flavors. One standout is a stout featuring a cold brew!
Their upcoming project, set to open to the public by late August, is a cozy small tasting room. This will be followed by the launch of a full-scale taproom next door by the end of the year. Through his leadership and innovative approach, Sebastian Lynch is set to make Irrelevant Beer an essential stop in the Pacific Northwest beer scene!
What makes EnergyCraft™ Special?
The EnergyCraft™ design is built with energy monitoring technology that manages all the electrical energy used in the heating and cooling processes during brewing. The energy management is powered by MARKS proprietary Smart Energy Controls technology that constantly balances the need for heat and cold during brewing. So efficient that the integrated stack condenser eliminates the need for a vent in the roof for steam to escape! So efficient that you can reduce the size of the chiller! As an electric system, no need for a boiler! You can focus on making great beer while the EnergyCraft™ system takes care of finding the most energy-efficient way to do that brewing.
