Downtown brewer honored by Enumclaw City Council

Sean McDonald volunteered his time and talents to help Enumclaw businesses weather the recent pandemic.

Cole Street Brewery owner Sean McDonald received the Spirit of Enumclaw award during the Enumclaw City Council’s Jan. 22 meeting for the “structure and direction” he provided the downtown business community during COVID-19 shutdowns and service interruptions.

“Over the past few years, you have quickly become one of the leaders in the business community here in Enumclaw. You provided structure and direction during COVID by helping navigate different issues that the local businesses were facing,” the award reads in part. “You have dedicated countless hours to enhancing economic development within the local community and your commitment as a servant citizen which you provided contributed to the Community’s Spirit of Enumclaw.”
