Skål Beer Hall to open in October

The long awaited opening for Skål Beer Hall (5429 Ballard Ave NW) has been pushed to October, after about half a year of city permitting issues.

Skål tells us they’ve launched into the building phase: “The sound of hammers, saws, and an occasional viking horn is music to our ears!” they write. They’re undergoing a massive remodel from the bar’s former life as the People’s Pub.

“This is a studs-out remodel. We did all of the demo work ourselves and have now (thankfully!) passed the heavy lifting over to our contractor,” they say. They’re opening the doors for a few hours each Sunday in August from 11am to 2pm to anyone who wants to have a peek at the remodel. They’ll have shirts for sale, mug club memberships and three styles of hats to choose from. Only merchandise will be for sale at this point – no food or drink until they’re up and running.

Between their kickstarter and this “open house Sunday” concept, this is beginning to feel like they are short capital and are relying on merchandising to stay above water. Hope I’m wrong …
