Monka Brewery reopens with outdoor seating

When Devin Walker got a job with Seattle’s Georgetown Brewery almost 20 years ago he learned a lot about brewing and he also fell in love with the beer business. Then life intervened and Devin needed a higher paying job to support his family. 

Three kids later he and Trez McBean opened the Monka Brewery in 2017 and turned it into a successful business venture…until the Covid-19 virus made brewing unprofitable.

To support the reopening of their business this month, Devin and Trez have added a lovely outdoor patio with plenty of room for 12 to 14 patrons.
The indoor brewery is also open and seats an equal amount of people. These are enthusiastic young proprietors who are happy to talk about Shoreline Rotary, their three kids in Shoreline Schools and how they’ve put down roots in a home near the Shoreline light rail station. 

The Monka Brewery name is a tribute to Trez's mother, whom the grandkids called Monka. Her name was Teresa Irene McGee. She passed a few months after they got the keys to the space and it took them a year to get all the licensing and get the space ready. She died Aug 2017, and they opened in June of 2018.

Monka Brewery is open at 17211 15th Ave NE Shoreline 98155, in the North City Business District.
