Under the watchful glow of the iconic lion, the large mixed-use building Cedar Speedster is getting the finishing touches put together on the corner of 36th and Phinney. If all stays on schedule, by the end of this month Aslan Brewing Company’s .Seattle Taproom Seattle Taproom is going to be up and running, and we can’t wait!

We were so excited when Aslan announced their plans in January to open a Seattle Taproom and knew we wanted to get involved. The organic beer brewing company started in Bellingham, WA, in 2013 and has been growing an empire ever since. Their name, Aslan, is the Turkish word for lion and speaks to their philosophy of pushing boundaries while preserving the brewing tradition.

After discussing the Aslan logo the owners, we knew that it had to be the signature icon for the taproom space. The final product is a depiction of Aslan’s majestic King of the Jungle, on each side of a sleek blade sign . This piece is the culmination of meticulous planning, fabricating, and a solid week of hand-crafting neon glass from Tecnolux and we are so proud of how it came together. When we asked CEO Jack Lamb his thoughts on the project, he said simply, “We are SO happy with the sign [Western Neon] made. Seriously a dream come true.”

We love that as a certified B Corporation, Aslan is committed to organic ingredients, locally sourced goods, and low-impact practices. They fit right in at their new home, Cedar Speedster , a brand new building that houses a central retail space for Evo, as well as restaurants Revel and Local tide.
