Less than two months after announcing its plans to open a new space in Fremont, Reuben’s Brews hosted a grand opening celebration on Oct. 21. Fully updated with new paint, furnishings, and ample covered outdoor seating, the Fremont Ave Taproom adds an award-winning beer lineup and beer-friendly fare to a pocket of the Seattle neighborhood that has become a foodie magnet.
“Opening this new taproom is something that we’ve been planning to achieve for years and actively working towards for many months,” says co-founder and brewmaster Adam Robbings. “We’re so proud of the work our whole team put in to make this happen as quickly as it did and we can’t wait to welcome the community in for a pint and some beer-battered fish and chips!”
The festivities featured limited edition merch, a glassware giveaway, new menu items, free pet portraits from local artist Dozfy, live music from Seattle-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Roddy Scheer, and its newest beer: Body Paint, a hazy IPA brewed with a splash of color and some of their favorite hop varieties.
“Getting this space over the finish line is a huge accomplishment for us,” adds co-founder Grace Robbings.” It also gave us an idea for another beer name: The Fallacy of Turnkey,” she quips.
Since launching in 2012, Reuben’s Brews has gained a reputation for a host of beers that reflect a spirit of both tradition and innovation. At the same time, the brewery has taken pains to establish itself as a warm, welcoming environment for all.
With its new location, the brewery continues its journey to provide memorable experiences that encourage people to explore the world of beer. Open daily from 11:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m., the Fremont Ave Taproom offers cozy, cafe-style indoor seating, a covered patio, a to-go store with merch and beer, and limited car and bicycle parking on site.
