Big news for Fremont beer fans. Bellingham-based Aslan Brewing Company — known for its popular organic beers with the signature lion labels — is making steady progress on its upcoming taproom in the neighborhood, polishing up the North 36th Street location and ramping up hiring. Though tentatively planned for summer when it was first announced, a rep for the brewery says that it’s now aiming for a late September opening date (which, yes, might still technically be summer, depending on how late).

Located in a new building called Cedar Speedster, the taproom will be more intimate than Aslan’s two Bellingham spots, with seating for 30; it will share some barrel aged projects, seasonal beers, and one-off creations that are usually not available in the Seattle market. When it opens, there will be sandwiches from Salumi and items from a new seafood restaurant called Local Tide that will share a window with Aslan. As reported earlier, the building will also house top-notch Korean restaurant Revel, which relocated temporarily to South Lake Union last year.

Meanwhile, this will be the third location for Aslan, but the first outside of its hometown. Aslan will continue to brew its beer exclusively in Bellingham, which first opened there in 2013 and added a second outpost in 2018.
