After long permitting delays that pushed back the opening by more than six months, Chuck’s Hop Shop is now open for business in Seattle’s Central District at 20th and Union. They currently have 19 taps flowing for pints and growler fills, but eventually they plan to have 50 beers and ciders on tap in total. They have somewhere close to 500 different beers in stock already, but owner Chuck Shin plans to have more than 1,000 bottled/canned offerings available once all is said and done. The Chuck’s Hop Shop location in Greenwood has become one of the more popular neighborhood beer spots in the city, and Chuck thinks that the family and dog-friendly atmosphere will be a hit in the Central District as well.
They are currently open 2pm to 10pm M-Th, 3pm to 1am on Friday, 11am to 1am on Saturday and 11am to Midnight on Sunday. They have also started a rotation of food trucks on Thursday through Sunday.
This Saturday will be a perfect time to stop by and visit when they will host neighborhood brewery Standard Brewing for an event from 5pm to 9pm.
We are hosting Standard Brewing from 5:00-9:00pm this Saturday. We will be pouring Standard’s Imperial IPA, West Coast IPA, CDA and their Biere De Garde. Justin from Standard will be hanging out. This is the perfect time to drink great beer, support the CD and get to know your neighbors. Let’s show Justin how much we value his contribution to the culture of the Central District.
The spot is still a work in progress, but the doors are open, the coolers are (at least partially) stocked and the beer is flowing. Oh, and the ice cream cooler is stocked, too. They also have a perfect area on the side of the building near the street that Chuck plans to level and turn into a patio once nicer weather approaches. There will be a grand opening at some point, so watch their FaceBook page for updates.
