The Brewmaster’s Taproom opens for business in Renton on Tuesday, August 9th, with the official grand opening celebration scheduled for Saturday, August 13th. The new taproom is the sister company to the Brewmaster’s Bakery, a Renton-based company that produces baked goods and other food products using brewer’s spent grain (BSG).
Along with 20 beers on tap, the Brewmaster’s Taproom will offer draft cider and root beer, as well as its signature baked goods, flat screens for watching the big games, and outdoor seating, all in a kid- and dog-friendly environment. Guests are also invited to bring food with them to the taproom.
The Brewmaster’s Taproom and The Brewmaster’s Bakery complement each other and combine to create a “circle of life” concept, serving craft beer alongside baked goods made using spent grain from local breweries. Brewers spent grain is the most plentiful byproduct of the brewing process and the typical brewery produces thousands of pounds of the stuff every week. Although the post-brewing barley is of no use to brewers, it is still a valuable food product and, in the right hands, can be used to create a variety of delicious, nutritious treats.
Along with a wide selection of bottled and canned beers, The Brewmaster’s Taproom will offer draft beer from some of its partner breweries. The list of partner breweries (those that supply the bakery with grain and will now provide the taproom with draft beer) is long and includes the likes of 7 Seas Brewing, Airway’s Brewing, Reuben’s Brews, Seapine Brewing, Cloudburst Brewing, Counterbalance Brewing, Postdoc Brewing, Fremont Brewing and many more.
Think about it for a second. You could literally sip a beer as you eat a cookie made with grain that was spent in the making of that beer. The circle of life.
The Brewmaster’s Taproom will feature beers from small, new breweries that are just starting out, as well as beers from more recognizable breweries, including unique brews often available only at the breweries’ taprooms.
The Taproom will offer the company’s flagship line of granolas, along with an extended line of baked goods, like breads, cookies, caramels, and anything else the baker dreams up. Everything The Brewmaster’s Bakery creates makes use of spent grain, beer, or other beer ingredients. They also produce a line of dog treats and donate a portion of the profits from every sale to Summit Assistance Dogs of Anacortes, Washington.
The Brewmaster’s Bakery was founded in March 2015 by Marley Rall, who spent years watching her husband and in-laws homebrew, wondering how to make use of the spent grain that each brewing cycle produced.
Rall often jokes, “It was really my vanity that started all of this; I really just wanted my in-laws to like me. But now I’m excited to bring craft beer and baked goods to the Renton area where it’s so desperately needed.”
