When Urban Family Brewing moved their brewery operations to a new, larger location in Magnolia this summer, the future of their taproom on Ballard Ave was a little unclear. Now, that original location has closed, and tonight they will open up their new tasting room where they will pour beers made on their new 7-barrel brewing system. The new tasting room and brewery is located at 4441 26th Ave W in the industrial zone between the Ballard Locks and the Fisherman’s Terminal and just a few blocks from the residential district of eastern Magnolia.
They will be open from 4pm to 9pm this evening and will be pouring 8 beers total:
Spelt it, Dealt it
So West it’s East IPA
Fresh Hop IPA
Hoppy Magnolia Farmhouse Ale
Citron Noir Dark Farmhouse Ale
De La Brett
Deuce is Wild
Going forward, the tasting room will be open Friday (4-9pm), Saturday (1-9pm) and Sunday (11am to 5pm). With their larger operations, they will have a lot more flexibility to release time and space consuming styles. According to co-owner Tim Czarnetzki, “About 40% of our output will be focused on brett (beers), something we couldn’t do at the last space because we didn’t have any room.”
I’ll be looking forward to trying the new beers sometime soon! Congrats to the crew at Urban Family for moving on to their next step.
In addition to the new tasting room, you can find their beers on draught and in bottles across the area.
