According to Eater Seattle, the Ballard Beer Company (2050 NW Market St) is getting set to open its doors in the former La Tienda space either this weekend or next.

Owned by Ballard resident Greg Anderson, the pub and bottle shop will have 15 beers on tap, and will focus heavily on Ballard and Fremont breweries. According to their website, there will be Sunday beer tastings, and Brewer’s nights on Thursday where patrons can meet local brewmasters. The website notes the hours of the tap room will be from 4 to 11 p.m. Wednesday to Friday, noon to 11 p.m on Saturday, and noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday.

Manager Lindsey Allison told Eater Seattle there’s a lot of great beer in Ballard, and they want to be there to represent it.

“The overall community between breweries is amazing,” Allison told Eater Seattle. “There’s not that competitive feeling. We’re really excited about being a part of that.”

My Ballard had the chance to catch up with Anderson back in March, with the owner noting the quality of breweries in the area.

“I love that there is a beer culture growing right here in Ballard!” Anderson said. “Having experienced every one of our breweries I can tell you there is some very good beer being brewed here and I have a feeling it’s only going to get better,”

    I wish they’d focus on beers outside of Ballard. If I want Ballard beers, I’ll go to the breweries.

    We can’t help it if our beers are the best.
