Fair Isle Brewing opens today

Ballard’s newest brewery, Fair Isle Brewing, is opening today.

Fair Isle has been in the works since mid-2018 — founders Andrew Pogue and Geoffrey Barker began brewing together when they met through the North Seattle Home Brew Club. They hatched an idea to build a brewery together, with the goal to create farmhouse and “wild” beers, specializing in mixed-culture brews.

“Without the combined effort of these wonder people and many more, we’d still just be talking about starting a brewery,” Fair Isle announced on their social media channels.

They’ll be opening with seven draft beers, which they say are saisons, “created with ingredients farmed and foraged in the Pacific Northwest and fermented with our house blend of wild and feral yeasts and bacterias.” The tasting room will also serve a few guest beers, cider, and wine.

The tasting room is 21+, located at 936 NW 49th St. Their regular hours will be Wednesday to Friday, 3pm – 10pm, and noon to 10pm on weekends.
