Redhook Brewery, which is now part of the Portland-based Craft Brewers Alliance, is looking to head back to its roots somewhere close to where the original Ballard brewery was located during the early 1980s.
Redhook currently has two breweries in operation, one in Woodinville and one in New Hampshire.
“Everything is still in the early planning stages. The big message is that Redhook is looking to build again where it started,” Craft Brewers spokesperson Jenny McLean told The Seattle Times.
According to the report, the Redhook brewpub will open in our neighborhood, or very close by, in 2017.
The Redhook team seem to be feeling extra nostalgic lately with the release of the Big Ballard Imperial IPA (label pictured above) last week.
The new beer was released at the Old Peculiar Pub in Ballard with much festivity, live music and a grand prize drawing for a $1000 gift certificate to Redhook Ale Brewery.
The My Ballard team will keep readers posted about the plans for the brewpub as further details emerge.
