West Seattle food and drink: Ounces readying taproom/beer garden in North Delridge

(WSB photos)

Laurel Trujillo‘s dream is coming true. She and husband Andrew Trujillo are converting 3809 Delridge Way SW into a taproom / beer garden space to be called Ounces.

You might remember the successful crowdfunding campaign. Maybe you even participated. Since then, they’ve secured a location and are giving it a complete overhaul, inside and out:


It was previously the medical-marijuana dispensary Safe Access, and before that, a marble-and-tile business, with its history before that even including time as a service station.


The interior space is cozy, with an ordering bar and a seating bar – but the exterior space is sprawling; it includes some parking, and even more room for the actual beer garden, about 3,000 square feet, which will also have room for games such as Cornhole and Jenga.

Which beers will Ounces offer? They’ll be focusing on Washington state beer, wine, and cider, Laurel says, no lineup yet – though they promise 30+ taps – but they’re doing lots of research. Other beverages will include nitro cold-brew coffee and kombucha on tap. Possibly even juice boxes, since this is going to be an all-ages, families-welcome space.

They’ll also be serving some food – deli-type sandwiches, charcuterie plates, snacks. And, she says, they won’t mind if you bring your own, or pick some up at nearby venues like Skylark.

The hours aren’t set yet, but they’re expecting to be open five days a week, with their grand opening likely in the first week of October, as they’re estimating about five more weeks of work.

    What a great idea!  I will make a point to frequent Ounces when it opens.


    Would have a made a great name for a marijuana shop too.

    Yay! As your neighbors in North Delridge, we are very excited about something else we can walk to. Will dogs be allowed in the outdoor space (please say yes!)? And will the outdoor space be used year-round?

    I am so  looking forward to Ounces opening.  I love the focus on NW beer and wine and so close to home for us.

     Welcome to the neighborhood Ounces!

    Welcome to North Delridge, Ounces! We’re very excited to see something fun going in that is within walking distance. Major bonus points for being pup friendly! Can’t wait to visit.

    Westside WILL attend.

    Laurel and Andrew are awesome.  I know this couple well enough to say I’m expecting a fantastic outcome given my interaction with then.  They are avid craft beer enthusiasts and also are at the local gym on a super regular basis (which just happens to be just two blocks away).   Congrats to you two and welcome!

  • Carmen & Fred August 25, 2016 (9:04 pm)

    We will become regular, folks from afar want to attend the open house and make a visit to the Seattle area, Ontario, Colorado, Calgary👏👏

    This sounds great! I love that they plan to have cider!

    Yay!  Cheering you on from a few blocks south!  Can’t wait to try it out.  

  • Steve August 25, 2016 (10:07 pm)

    Great news!  No more weed store but a nice place for a pint!  Definely an improvement for the neighborhood!

    What a great addition to this part of West Seattle! Laurel and Andrew are great people – super fun and a work ethic that I know will shine through at Ounces! Congrats Trujillos! Excited to come celebrate with you!

    Right at the bottom of my hood.  So excited that business’s are coming into North Delridge.  All for the best and look forward to trying it out.

    This is really great news.   I was going to try and cut back, my waistlines needs it, but if I can walk home from this place, maybe I can burn some of those calories.  Really excited that they plan to have outside ‘open’ year round, and allow kids and pets.

    Happy to see there’s a place for kombucha—we don’t drink alcohol but still want a place to go. Will this be your own ferment, or what do you plan on offering?

  • Ová August 26, 2016 (10:30 am)

    Hooray! This sounds like a fantastic addition to our neighborhood!  We look forward to visiting & bringing friends along!

  • GodsOwnDrunk August 26, 2016 (2:16 pm)

    So glad to have a kid-friendly place for beer nearby.  I love Chuck’s Hop Shop in the CD and the Ballard breweries but it’s going to be nice to not have to travel.

    • Westside August 28, 2016 (8:56 am)

      You do know about The Beer Junction, right? The best bottle shop/taproom in King County? Right there in the Junction?

Sorry, comment time is over.
