Welcome Back! Maritime Pacific’s Jolly Roger Taproom Returns with Fury
Well we’re here. We waited in line a chilly 35 minutes but our devotion paid off, as we were persons 4 and 5 in the door. The new Jolly Roger filled our senses and we embarked on a journey for cold beer (ok, I got cask but it’s still kind of cold).
The Jolly Roger shut down four months ago to prepare for a move to it’s new digs on Ballard Way in between Ballard and Fremont.
The space is beautiful, a testament to the hard work expended by George Hancock and his crew. The new area is larger without losing much of the cozy warming feeling that the ole Roger held.
From the massive treasure map mural floor to the large aluminum cut Jolly Roger on the wall, the space is teeming with the brewery’s signature iconography.
The bar and cupboards are freshly constructed, and the woody scent fills the air. The same old bar construction remains, the vessel’s steering wheel-like tap lineup intact.
Today the Roger is pouring all it’s favorites, including Nightwatch and Imperial IPA, which it added in cask.
Get here soon I you want to get in. The line outside is close to 100 deep for those hoping to grab some $2.00 beers today.
Good job George and crew! Good luck to Maritime Pacific in their new digs!
