Lucky Envelope Brewing Sixth Anniversary Celebration and beer specials will run April 30 – May 1

Lucky Envelope Brewing welcomes you to join their celebration of six years in the Ballard Brewery District on Friday, April 30th and Saturday, May 1st. Leaving their respective careers in engineering and corporate finance, Lucky Envelope founders and longtime friends Barry Chan and Ray Kwan opened the Ballard brewery in May of 2015. Their passion for both craft beer and shared Chinese-American heritage inspired a unique approach to brewing.

Respecting beer in its purest form but refusing to abide by the limits of convention, Lucky Envelope strives to push the envelope with bold new concepts and innovative recipes influenced by community, culture and curiosity. Six years later, Lucky Envelope Brewing has grown into a multi-award winning brewery, drawing inspiration from modern and historic beer styles and techniques to bring unique “Culturally Inspired” beers to Seattle and beyond.
