I first read about a new brewery opening in Ballard yesterday in Seattle Met magazine. When I was in the neighborhood today, I decided to check out the location and see what was up.
Slated for a September release, Hilliard’s is the name of the latest brewery to open in Washington. With the opening (and a couple of other recent ones) the state now boasts more than 150 breweries open for business. Pretty incredible.
According to the Met, the brewery plans to offer “a hoppy, American-style amber and a saison farmhouse ale” as their first two brews. They plan to bottle almost exclusively in aluminum cans, still a bit of an oddity in the market.
Welcome to Ballard! Can’t wait to stop in.
