about ladd & lass

L&L is a Puget Sound brewery in planning. A labor of love from husband-and-wife team, Nick Ladd and Jessie Quan, we hope to be pouring for you in 2019. Having met as college students many moons ago, we’ve been lucky enough to have chased a variety of adventures together over the years and are excited to now be chasing our greatest adventure yet.

As excited as we are, we know there will be a ton to do between now and when we finally open our doors. Our goal is to build a brewery and taproom that the community around us can be proud to call their own so all of the tasks on our “to do” list will be tackled with that main objective in mind. From finding the right location on the Puget Sound to the design of our taproom, L&L is all about creating an inviting gathering place for beer lovers (and those who still aren’t quite sure) to come together and celebrate well-crafted, innovative beer. And we will always strive to be a good neighbor—establishing relationships with local merchants and seeking out opportunities to help contribute to the community around us.

L&L is, and will always be, a small, family-owned craft brewery focused on brewing delicious beer for all to enjoy.

We may not be meeting you in person for a little while yet, but it’s never too early to join the L&L family. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see our progress as we work to make Ladd & Lass Brewing a reality.

 
 

Meet the Family

 
  nick / co-founder & the   "ladd"   The brains behind the delicious beer you’ll be enjoying, Nick has over 200 batches of homebrew and numerous awards (at the local and national level) under his belt. After nearly a decade of experimentation and recipe development, he has brewed across all beer styles and has a deep respect and appreciation for all. After years of kicking around the idea of going pro, Nick is excited to finally be sharing his passion for fermented liquid creativity with a larger audience. His experience as an architect will come in handy as L&L designs and builds out the brewery and taproom. And his penchant for cleanliness ensures that the only “sour” beers being served are actual sour beers.

  jessie / co-founder & "the lass"   Having fallen in love with the camaraderie of the homebrew community while attending her first National Homebrewers Conference, Jessie is eagerly anticipating becoming a part of the craft beer community. With her combined background in architecture and graphic design, she will manage all things visual at L&L. When she's not busy visualizing, you’ll find her behind the bar so be sure to say “hi”… she’s looking forward to learning your name and favorite beer styles.
