Hope you enjoyed your Jolly's

Thanks to everyone who came out to our open house this past Saturday.  I had a wonderful time showing you all our little brewery here in Ballard.  I also hope you all enjoyed your gifts and didn't drink them all in one sitting (but if you did, kudos to you...)  Keep checking back here and in the taproom to find out about new beers and special events in the coming year.

If you are in the Ballard hood this Saturday and would like an up close look at our brewery, come on by between 12 and 4 PM and check us out.  Tours will depart from the Jolly Roger Taproom about every half hour.  Hope to see you there...


Thanks to everyone who came out and helped celebrate our anniversary last weekend.  We hope you enjoyed the food and beer and can't wait to see you again next year (and maybe even a few days in between!)  Here's to year number two...

One year ago, the Jolly Roger Taproom opened its doors at  its new location at 1111 NW Ballard Way.  We would like to thank our loyal patrons who patiently waited for the doors to re-open and helped our first year to be successful.  From February 17, 2011, through February 20, 2011, we will be releasing a special Cask-Conditioned beer to commemorate the Taproom's First Birthday.

At 5 pm each night of the celebration, we will roll out a firkin of a new or specially aged beer to help us celebrate with our faithful patrons.  The list of exciting beers is as follows:

     February 17th - Dry Hopped Salmon Bay ESB aka Jane's Bitter
     February 18th - Special Release of Navigator Weizenbock aged with vanilla beans
     February 19th - Dry Hopped, Oak Aged Imperial IPA
     February 20th - Jolly Roger Christmas Ale aged with Oak Chips soaked in Rum

These specialty beers will only be around until the cask is empty, so come when the firkin is tapped.

In addition to specialty beers, our chef will be cooking up something special to help up celebrate.  Over the next few days we will be finalizing any other details and will keep our customers updated on our website, Facebook, and Twitter about any changes or special events.

Thanks again to our loyal customers for helping make the Jolly Roger Taproom's first year at our new location a success.  We want the warmth, the camaraderie, and the memories to last for many more years.

Happy Anniversary!

It's hard to believe it's already been one year, but it's true... 

It seems like just yesterday we were working feverishly to put the finishing touches on the new Jolly Roger Taproom.  Today the gang is finishing up their first annual cleanup party.  We want to thank everyone for their patience while we have been closed the past two days for this cleanup.  And now for the exciting news...

On Thursday the 17th we will kick off a four day celebration which will end on Sunday the 20th, the actual first anniversary of the new taproom opening.  There will be special casks each day and special food items from the kitchen.  Check back right here for more details as they become available.  

We hope to see you all down here to celebrate this very happy anniversary.

Triple Cask Tuesday and Taproom Closure...

We have realized that the next Triple Cask Tuesday is slated for next Tuesday when we are closed.  To  makeup for this scheduling mishap, we will be pouring a special cask from the bar on Wednesday the 9th at 5 pm. Same Triple Cask Tuesday pricing applies.  Thanks for your understanding...
