#2610 #S1276 - Ballard Beer Company, Seattle - 8/31/2014

Ballard Beer Company
If you're from out of town or would just like to get a sample of Seattle craft beers, you could do a lot worse than to choose this new place along Market Street in the Ballard neighborhood. Since there are, at last count, 11 breweries in this neighborhood alone, it seems to make sense to have a bar that specializes in these "hyper-local" brews. About 15 of the 17 taps will be dedicated to these, plus they have a growing bottled selection. Of course it's also fun to visit the brewery tap rooms, as so many breweries have been attracted to the combination of reasonable rent industrial spaces, nearby population-dense spaces, and the old school maritime history that still lingers to some degree even as a crush of new bars and restaurants has modified the area.

The Ballard Beer Co. is owned by Greg and Lena Anderson, who deny being "Boeing engineers." Their space feels much like a typical craft brew taproom, with high ceilings, long, wooden picnic-style community tables, board games, and big bowls of pretzels.
