For more than 15 months the alternate taproom sat dormant. While the main taproom on 14th Avenue stayed open as much as the rules and safety allowed, the Brewtap, aka “the other Reuben’s Brews taproom,” has remained shuttered since the pandemic began.
Located at the company’s production facility, the taproom formerly known as The Brewtap will reopen on June 19th with a new name: The Canning Line.
The initial plan is for The Canning Line to operate Thursday through Sunday from 3:00 – 9:00. This is the third Reuben’s Brews tasting room in the Ballard vicinity. In late April, Reuben’s Brews opened the Barrel House, as we reported here. Like the Barrel House, in addition to walk-up visitors, The Canning Line will accept reservations, which can be made online here.

THE CANNING LINE AT REUBEN’S BREWS: THE TASTING ROOM FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE BREWTAP REOPENS LATER THIS MONTH
After more than 15 months of being closed to the public, we are reopening the doors to our tasting room at our Production Brewery on 8th Avenue on Saturday, June 19th!
The Canning Line at Reuben’s Brews is the newest tasting room experience from the Reuben’s Brews team, and will be replacing The Brewtap at 800 NW 46th St in Ballard. This space will initially be open Thursday through Sunday, 3pm to 9pm for both reservations and walk-ups.
The Canning Line offers an intimate space for our guests to gather with a unique guided experience to our award-winning beers within view of our packaging hall and canning line. Through twelve draft lines and a breadth of can and bottle options, we’ll be pouring through the best of what we brew, including limited cellar offerings from our barrel-aged and wild/sour programs. Our team is always available for a conversation about the beer being poured, or anything else you’d like to know about the brewing process or what’s happening at the brewery, and we encourage you to ask questions!
Our Tock reservations system for the Canning Line is live now for reservations of tables for up to four guests each beginning on Saturday, June 19th. https://www.exploretock.com/reubensbrewscanningline

As Covid-era precautions continue to roll back please note that The Taproom will remain walk-up only, with a waiting list system in place until we are able to offer 100% occupancy. The Barrel House will continue offering both walk-up and reservations, available here, Thursday through Sunday, 3pm to 9pm.
