There are breweries spread out all over Seattle, covering almost every neighborhood. In fact, most Seattle residents live within just a few miles (or even closer) of at least one craft brewery. That’s especially true if you live in Ballard, which still has the highest concentration of craft breweries in Seattle, most within just a few blocks of each other.
One of those Ballard breweries is Populuxe Brewing Company, which was first launched back in 2012 by co-founders Peter Charbonnier and Amy Besunder in a small space on NW 49th Street. They received a very positive response, kept on brewing and, in late 2016, a new, larger space became available right on the same lot. By September 2017, they were ready to debut their new space.
Much larger than the original space, Populuxe’s new taproom features 12 taps, plenty of seating and even an arcade room, packed with pinball machines and classic arcade games. It’s the perfect venue for their upcoming beach blanket bingo themed 5th Anniversary celebration, which is set for this coming Saturday, March 10th.
