We just received news that Urban Family Brewing is almost ready to open its new tasting room in Magnolia. The official opening is this Friday, October 24th. Details below.
The brewery originally opened in downtown Ballard back in 2012, brewing in the back of its pub on Ballard Ave. It didn’t take long for Urban Family to realize it needed to make more beer than the space would allow. The search began for a new location. So to did the process of securing a larger brewing system.
Urban Family Brewing claims to be the first brewery tasting room in Magnolia. I find no evidence to the contrary. Cheers to that! And Cheers to Urban Family Brewing, I know they’ve been working hard on this project for a long time.
Here’s the press release:
