Pour Decisions to open Nov. 1 in former Dane location

The newest brewery and cidery taproom Pour Decisions is getting ready to open up on Nov. 1 in the location formerly home to The Dane (8000 15th Ave NW).

The new venture is a joint collaboration between Everett-based Crucible Brewing and Soundbite Cider. Crucible co-owner Dick Mergens told My Ballard that the inspiration to join forces came from Bale Breaker Brewing Co. and Yonder Cider, another soon-to-open brewery/cidery in Ballard.

Pour Decisions will maintain the 31 taps; most will be occupied by beer and cider from Crucible and Soundbite, but Mergens said they’ll keep a rotating selection of guest beers. They’ll also have three wines on tap, and are partnering with Patterson Cellars to provide the draft wine options.

During the soft opening from Nov. 1 to Nov. 12, the taproom will be open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays, 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays, and 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays. They plan on hosting a grand opening celebration with live music on Nov. 13.

“During these [first] two weeks we want to show you our new place, hear what you think, and of course we’ll break in the new place together and make some Pour Decisions while we’re at it too!” the owners shared on Facebook.
