Populuxe Brewing (826 NW 49th St) will be moving into their new, bigger space next door in August.
It’s been a long time coming for the move; they’d planned to be in the new building in March, but city permitting was delayed, which meant they lost their contractor to do the buildout. The new builder, Rafn Company, broke ground at the end of May.
The new space will include a full service arcade; they’ve partnered with Seattle Pinball Museum and plan to have both classic and new arcade and pinball machines. There will be a party room available for rent, plus a beer garden with firepits and cornhole and a regular rotation of food trucks.
“We’ll be open seven days a week and look forward to be a place our neighbors can continue to gather and enjoy great, local beer,” Populuxe’s Amy Besunder tells My Ballard.
