Silver City Brewery has been a Kitsap staple since it’s inception in Silverdale, WA in September of 1996. Brothers Scott & Steve Houmes, local restauranteurs since 1990, shared a vision of bringing a world class brewpub restaurant to the “West Sound”. The brothers teamed up with local Thomas Kemper brewer & founder of the West Sound Brewers Club, brewmaster “Big Daddy” Don Spencer.

Silver City’s flagship restaurant developed a strong local following winning numerous local “Best of” awards & regionally has been awarded the best Brewpub in Western Washington by Evening Magazine every year since 2007.  In 2010 Silver City restaurant was awarded the best brewpub in the nation by Luxist magazine.

Throughout the years Big Daddy’s brews have won over 65 awards in the prestigious World Beer Cup, North American Beer Awards, & the Great American Beer Festival, making Silver City one of the most decorated breweries in the Northwest.  We at Silver City pride ourselves in brewing a large variety of different brews, showing the diversity & range of the brewers. Of this Don says "I wanted to create many different styles, provide a lot of different tastes. I didn't want to limit myself. As a brewer, I'm very traditional. I like my beer to taste like beer. So I try to stay true to style but at the same time you want to push some beers to the edge, be creative and try new things."

Over time, demand for Silver City beers outside the restaurant began to grow. Scott & Steve decided to make the move to begin meeting that demand in late 2008. Quickly, Silver City beers became available all around the Puget Sound and with this success the brewers quickly ran out of room & capacity at the Silverdale flagship brewpub.

In May of 2010 Silver City opened its new production facility in Bremerton, WA & ceased brewing operations in Silverdale. The 7600 sq. feet Bremerton facility allowed Silver City the room to grow with demand. Silver City beer is available in bars, restaurants, grocery & convenient stores in the Puget Sound area. Silver City fans can pick up kegs directly at the Bremerton brewery that will feature a tasting room sometime in the future. The newly remodeled flagship restaurant in Silverdale has extended seating capacity to the old brewery room and has a fresh new look throughout.

Silver City Brewery is committed to providing fresh, flavorful, local brews of the highest quality to our fans in Washington & the Pacific Northwest. Please keep an eye out for our brews and ask your local retailer, bar, or restaurant for us if we are not currently available. We look forward to providing tasty brews for you, whether in our Flagship Restaurant, at the brewery, or in your home town sometime soon.
