It’s been almost two years since Jellyfish Brewing started making beer in Georgetown, but the company’s taproom has been a little more slow to develop. The delayed taproom — originally scheduled for May 2017 — will finally open on Saturday, November 3, at 11:30 a.m. The all-ages space includes a patio, where dogs are allowed.
The brewery (917 South Nebraska St.) will celebrate with weekly rare beer releases, including several barrel-aged concoctions, all during November. Pours will include a barrel-fermented sour red called Party on Garth, a wine barrel-aged porter with chocolate called Date Night, and a barrel-aged red saison called Seattle Sunburn. The brewery also plans to schedule food trucks regularly.
Jellyfish has occupied a handful of taps at restaurants and beer bars around town for a while now, with releases like the company’s flagship Planktonic Red, Smack! IPA, and Saison Memoir.
Jellyfish is owned by Tom Stevens, who spent time at Big Time Brewery and Alehouse, and Mark Burr, who boasts a 25-year career in beer that includes helping open Water Street Brewing and Alehouse in Port Townsend and co-founding Strange Brew Fest. Stevens and Burr have brought on as head brewer Justin Rizza, who’s worked at Hale’s Ales and Great Divide Brewing Company.
