Ounces has set the date. We checked back today with co-proprietor Laurel Trujillo at the new taproom/beer garden’s location at 3809 Delridge Way SW, and as she showed us, they’re almost ready to go. With some unique touches, too, like the fence made from palettes obtained from Alki Lumber. And spools that will be turned into tables for standing and sitting outside.
They’ll have a tent area too, and heating; Laurel promises it’ll be “toasty.” They’ll be working on a “tailgate” type of atmosphere – with a big-screen TV under the tent on game days. They’ve made lots of progress since we last checked in with Ounces a month and a half ago, Inside, the bar and 30 taps are installed.
The space over the taps will hold the menu board; the starting tap list will be finalized soon. The plan remains Washington beer, wine, cider, and kombucha – some food too.
Here’s the opening plan for Ounces: First day will be Saturday, October 22nd. A two-week soft-open/shakedown period will follow, and the grand-opening festivities are set for Friday, November 4th, through Sunday, November 6th. Probably some live music – the plan’s still evolving. Hours will be 3-10 pm weekdays, noon-10 pm Saturdays, noon-8 pm Sundays. There’s a spacious on-site parking zone on the north side of the property; on the south end, Ounces plans games, like Cornhole and Giant Jenga.
