Diamond Knot to expand to Mountlake Terrace

They plan full brewery with restaurant seating for 250 and an events area.

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE -- Diamond Knot Craft Brewing will expand operations to Mountlake Terrace with an 8,900-square-foot brewpub scheduled to open this fall.
Located in West Plaza next to Double DD Meats, the new Diamond Knot Brewpub @ MLT will include restaurant seating for 250 as well as full brewery operations capable of producing 1,500 barrels annually. The restaurant space will also include a 60-seat event space, wired to support myriad events.
"Timing for us has always been an issue," Diamond Knot President Bob Maphet said in a press release. "We were approached with this opportunity just before heading into the major expansion at our flagship Alehouse in Mukilteo. Mountlake Terrace is an area in which we have been interested, so in good faith we asked West Plaza to be patient with us while we focused our efforts on our Mukilteo Alehouse expansion."
The owners of West Plaza at 5602 232rd St. SW said the timing was perfect for them.
"We have wanted to operate a brewery in this location ever since we purchased it," Kirk Ishizaki said in the news release. "Diamond Knot is the perfect quality brand, and we are excited by the years of brewing and retail experience they bring with them. Giving them time to focus on the Alehouse gave us time to create a vision of a brewpub that would be in line with our mutual goals, as well as what reflects the community."
The new location comes during a time of revitalization for Mountlake Terrace's Town Center. With a new transit station and a proposed civic center, it is hoped Diamond Knot Brewpub @ MLT will become a local attraction, as have the Diamond Knot Alehouse in Mukilteo and its Camano Lodge on Camano Island.
The company expects to hire about 50 people to operate the restaurant and brewery.
