Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: Fast Fashion


In 2018, art took Stillwater Artisanal Ales founder Brian Strumke to Seattle, where he met Matt Storm, owner of The Masonry, the man known for his intensely curated beer list and wood-fired pizza. In 2020, the pandemic paused Strumke’s nomadic lifestyle and, allowing him to dive into Storm’s concept for a new brewery, Fast Fashion. The duo began brewing a series of small batch beers paired with a smart, fashionable Instagram account. Fast Fashion became its own fashion tribe of line-out-the-door beer culture. In the beginning, Fast Fashion operated as a contract brewery, but it now has Head Brewer Stefano Annicchiarico and two storefronts — a brewery and taproom in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood on First Avenue just a couple blocks south of T-Mobile Park and a taproom on Roy Street next to his Masonry Pizza in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood. The Grit & Grain Podcast will host Fast Fashion Brewing co-owner and The Masonry founder Matt Storm and his team — his Masonry business partner, Sam Morin, and Fast Fashion Sales Executive Sarah Moorman — for a double episode in the Peaks & Pints Events Room from 3:30-5:30 p.m. today. In celebration, Peaks & Pints presents an in-house flight of Fast Fashion beer — a flight we’re calling Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: Fast Fashion.
