Our Team

I started Here Today as the culmination of a decades-long love affair with quality beer. After opening legendary beer bars in New York, Richmond VA, and Seattle, I set my sights on my final love letter to this ancient beverage: a waterfront brewery and kitchen. I wanted to create a memorable landmark with great food and high-quality beer.

Be a part of a waterfront Seattle brewpub from the team behind some of Seattle’s most decorated bars.

The Seattle waterfront is going through a $700MM update, and tourists and locals alike are looking for high-quality craft beer, cocktails, and food. Here Today is a 7-barrel brewpub opening right in the thick of it all operated by one of the most decorated teams in the Seattle bar world.

Our team has proven we can create killer concepts with strong brands, no matter the focus.

Despite being a mom & pop operation, our bar programs are nationally known, with a family that includes legendary Seattle classic cocktail bar Rob Roy, two-times James Beard-nominated beer bar & restaurant No Anchor, natural wine shop Vinnie’s, and Navy Strength, our tropical cocktail den which stunned the bar world in 2018 by beating some of the best in the industry in winning Best New American Cocktail bar at the Spirited Awards at Tales of the Cocktail.

We have secured a gorgeous space in a prime location.

We are signing and executing a 10-year lease with a 5-year option in the brand new 10 Clay Building across from the Sculpture Park. The developers are fans of our bars, have offered us a great deal of tenant improvement money, and are themselves personally investing in our brewery.

Our talented brewer has made quality beer all over the country.

Mario Cortes has executed every role in the business at a high level, doing so in some of the top breweries in the game. From his early days at Harpoon, Karbach, and Oskar Blues, to head brewer at San Francisco’s Woods Beer & Wine, Mario has demonstrated a tempered hand, an understanding of the current cultural zeitgeist, and a focus on developing Standard Operating Procedures as a way to manage costs and risks in the brewhouse.

The modern urban beer drinker is becoming increasingly focused on hyper-local, hyper-seasonal, limited-release options, and they are also crossing over to explore cocktails and wine.

We are already leaders in not only the beer scene but the craft cocktail and natural wine scene as well in Seattle. At the end of the day, our goal is not just creating beer although that is our main product--we want everyone who walks in the door to feel like they are in on the joke, that this is their party too.

Why now?

This is a brand new building and we are hitting right in stride with the work that the city is doing along the waterfront. The unsightly viaduct is down, the new piers and aquarium attractions are underway. The famed designers of New York City’s High Line park have been hired by the City of Seattle to design our waterfront park system, which will connect the gorgeous Sculpture Park with the Pioneer Square neighborhood, right in our front yard!

Join us!

We have everything ready to rock as soon as we have raised our capital. Our blueprints are done, permitting is done, all we need is you. In five years, we hope to be a household name in the local and regional beer scene as a destination brewery experience. Our number one goal is for people to remember how good they felt when they visited us. Help us make this a reality!
