According to Eater Seattle, Lagunitas Brewery and Tasting Room is now open in the former Hilliard’s Beer space at 1550 49th St NW.

This location is the second of this type of satellite tasting room for Lagunitas, which recently opened another small Taproom and Beer Sanctuary at a former brewpub in Charleston.

News was first announced in September that Lagunitas had acquired the warehouse space after Odin Brewing purchased the property in June.

In terms of what is on the menu, locals will usually be able to get the full selection of Lagunitas beers on draft. Small-batch experimental beers will be brewed on site at the Seattle facility.

Locals will notice changes to the venue since Hilliard’s left. The space has a new paint job and includes an island bar.

At the moment, the brewery is limited to guests 21+ until the kitchen opens and starts serving food in the second quarter of 2017.
The company is also developing a large area in the back of the brewery to serve as free event space for nonprofit groups.

The new watering hole will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
