Cloudburst Brewing opens today on Shilshole

Ballard now has another brewery to add to its roster: Cloudburst Brewing opens today at 5456 Shilshole Ave NW.

The brewery announced last year its plans to set up shop in the former Rathburn Automotive building, their second location since opening on Western Ave in 2016.

“It’s been a long, wild, long, exciting, stressful, long ride,” Cloudburst shared on social media. The new Shilshole location has a beer garden, but the plan is to hold off on opening it up for a week or two. For now, the brewery will sell beers to-go from 11am to 8pm.

“There’s an old saying ‘It takes a village…’ and in our case, this is abundantly true. As you know, we make beer. That’s pretty much the only thing we legit know how to do. Everything else after that is not our expertise,” they say, in light of their 19-month build-out.

To keep tabs on when their beer garden will open, follow Cloudburst on Instagram.
