When you stop to think, it’s actually pretty amazing that Reuben’s Brews has only been around for just under 7 years. In that relatively short time, they’ve amassed a huge and loyal following, expanded the brewery twice (now encompassing three locations) and expanded their distribution across the state and into Oregon.
Their popular ‘Crush’ series keeps the hits coming, but hazy IPAs are by no means all Reubens brews. At their taproom on 14th Ave NW, you’ll find well over 20 beers on tap at any given time, spanning styles including: Pilsers, Goses, Belgian Wits, Porters, Stouts, Sours and more. The tap list as Reuben’s Brewtap (800 NW 46th St.) is a bit smaller, but you’ll still find the same wide variety.
As they approach the 7 year mark, Reuben’s is preparing for an anniversary celebration at all three of their locations: The 14th Ave NW taproom, the Brewtap and their original brewery location on NW 53rd Street.
Here is some more information about the anniversary celebration from Reuben’s Brews:
Reuben’s Brews is turning seven and will be celebrating the occasion with an anniversary beer release and a party at three of their Ballard locations on Saturday, September 7th. Festivities will feature both brand-new and classic Reuben’s Brews beers on tap, tasty food, live music, giveaways, and more. Cans of “Then and Now 7th Anniversary IPA” will available at The Taproom starting at 11 am, and feature a unique label revealing Reuben’s Brews’ design refresh.
In addition to all-day events at its Taproom (5010 14th Ave NW) and Brewtap (800 NW 46th St.), Reuben’s Brews will be hosting a pop-up event at its pilot brewery and original taproom (1406 NW 53rd St.), which has been closed to the public since 2015. Featuring a throwback vibe to when the doors first opened back in 2012, this location will have the five beers it opened with on tap: American Brown, American Rye, Robust Porter, Nitro Dry Stout, and Roggenbier. Visitors can also try this year’s anniversary brew on draft.
Beer enthusiasts are encouraged to stop by all locations and try the beers, plus pick up some very special swag:
- Taproom: The first 100 visitors will receive a free commemorative glass.
- Brewtap: Free limited edition commemorative poster.
- Pilot Brewery: “Take your pint” giveaway. Buy a pint and take the glass home for free!
When: Saturday, September 7th
Locations and Times:
The party will go on pretty much all day at the taproom and the Brewtap locations but, if you’re feeling nostalgic, be sure to stop by the original brewery location on 53rd Ave NE between noon and 6pm. As noted above, this is the first time the original location has been open to the public since 2015. Also, be sure to try Then and Now 7th Anniversary IPA and take some to go in cans. Congratulations to Reuben’s on 7 amazing years and here’s to their continue success.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
