Yonder Bar, the “world’s smallest taproom” that is located on our 1st Ave Safe Street, is celebrating their last day tomorrow. Forced to close almost a year ago and then reopening a month later due to fast-tracked legislation and community support, Yonder Bar will now shutter permanently on Saturday February 26th.
From founder Caitlin Braam: “As our one-year extension under the ‘Bringing Business Home’ bill comes to an end, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this amazing little space than by sharing a pint with those who made Yonder Cider and Yonder Bar possible – all of you!”
The Block Party-style event is taking place tomorrow from 12-8pm at 7800 1st Ave NW. Everyone and anyone is invited: all ages, all dogs, all pot-bellied pigs and parrots. Yonder will be checking IDs at the entrance and giving wrist bands to those who are of drinking age. There will be eight taps operating -four at Yonder Bar and four at a draft station – of specialty cider from Yonder, plus cans of all your favorites. There will be cider and special limited edition merch for sale and the talented Kate Dinsmore will be playing from 3-6pm.
Don’t worry, Yonder will still be present in the neighborhood! Local places in Phinneywood that carry these delicious ciders (either draft or package) include: Ken’s Market, Cornuto, Chez Phinney, Ridgewood, The Chicken Supply, The Yard and soon, Sip & Ship.
Also, just down in Ballard, Yonder is collaborating with Bale Breaker to create the BBYC Taproom. Beer and cider drinkers will be able to come together under one roof to enjoy more than 30 taps at a newly renovated taproom. There will be 6,200 square feet of outdoor space, rotating food trucks, outdoor firepits and so much more.
Come on by on Saturday to say farewell to our little taproom!
