The team that brought Seattle Poquitos, Bastille, Stoneburner, and more is planning a 40-tap beer hall complete with two restaurant projects in White Center, one of which is set to be a new location for Li’l Woody’s Burgers and Shakes.
Beer Star is in the works at 9801 16th Ave SW, on White Center’s main drag. Partners James Weimann and Deming Maclise will combine an expansive beer shop with hundreds of cans and bottles, and a taphouse (think Chuck’s Hop Shop). But instead of food trucks, patrons can fill up on food from two separate kitchens operating inside the space.
In addition to retail snacks, hot meals will come courtesy of Li’l Woody’s and a Chinese takeout window from some of the folks behind Capitol Hill Mexican spot Poquitos. Customers can also bring food in from other businesses.
Oh, and there’s also going to be a huge patio that can seat around 80 people when the weather is nice.
White Center is on a roll, with other recent additions including Drunky’s Two Shoe BBQ and Bok a Bok Fried Chicken. Also coming soon is the relocated taproom for Burdick Brewing, which is eyeing a summer opening.
As far as a timeline, it looks as though Beer Star will open any minute now, with an opening date announcement coming as soon next week.
