After months of planning, a Kickstarter campaign, a few small preview events (including one involving meber-owners of Flying Bike Cooperative Brewery) and a lot of hard work, Ballard’s newest brewery, Peddler Brewing Company, is set to open their doors to the public on Friday, March 8, 2013.
Their initial hours will be Fridays from 5PM to 10PM and Saturdays from 4PM to 10PM. They’ll be gradually increasing the number of days and hours they are open as things get up to speed.
Combining a love of craft beer with their love of bicycles, founders Haley Woods and David Keller have setup an inviting space with 8 taps and a 9-slot bike rack for those who pedal their way to Peddler. There is also a “public work station” near the bike rack for anyone who may need pump up their tires, do a tune-up or perform other minor maintenance. Bicycle gears and parts have also been incorporated into the decor, from the brake lever faucet handles in the bathroom to the bicycle gears in their concrete bar top.
Starting out with a 7-barrel brewing system, Peddler can brew up to 14 kegs per batch, and plan to open with 8 beers on tap including:
- Caramel ESB
- Pale Ale
- Snow Beer’d (A Dark Winter Beer)
- Belgian Lights (A Winter-Spiced Belgian)
Patrons can enjoy tasters or pints at the brewery or take them to go in 32oz bottles and 64oz growlers. Peddler does not currently provide any type of food, but any outside food either brought or delivered is always welcome. Come on out on March 8th and welcome them to the neighborhood.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
