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.
