New brewery coming to Ballard

Ballard will soon be home to another brewery called Populuxe Brewing, going in at 826 NW 49th St. As the Seattle Met reports, Ballardites Peter Charbonnier and Jiri Zatloukal are opening the brewery with their respective wives Amy Besunder and Judith Scarcia and, “have been geeking out about homebrewing together for the past four years.”

Populuxe’s Charbonnier told the Met that he and and Zatloukal will do “modern, west coast, Northwest” beers, using mostly local ingredients. The floor plans indicate there will be a large outdoor picnic area, complete with a cornhole court, says the Met. Cornhole, also known as bean bag toss, is a simple game involving a bean bag and a wooden board with a hole. The objective is even simpler: throw the bean bag in the hole for points.

The brewery should be open sometime in the next few months, and we’ll update with a specific opening date soon.
