I wanted to take a moment and let everyone know that a new bar is opening tonight in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. The bar is located right on Ballard Ave., in the heart of Ballard’s beverage district.
From there site:
We’ve brought together two things we love – the great outdoors and delicious beverages. Our vision began with a desire to create a neighborhood tavern where we could share our wilderness experiences and learn from yours. We feature craft beers, unique wines and hard ciders from the puget sound and beyond. We hope that your experience at The Noble Fir will leave you invigorated, whether it is renewed inspiration for that hike you’ve been wanting to tackle, or a new favorite beer.
The initial tap list went up today and I am very impressed. They have managed to get a lot of the Oregon newcomers that evade many of Seattle’s other great bars. Oregon taps include Double Mountain, Terminal Gravity, Laurelwood and of course, Deschutes & Rogue.
The Noble Fir will also showcase some local Washington favorites, such as Elysian, Fremont Brewing, Fish and Diamond Knot.
The best news: They are serving 20 oz pints!!! I love it when bars buckle up and drop the imperial pint glass in your lap. That’s just good business.
The menu is very Belgique. It is essentially what you are accustomed to seeing in a visit to taverns in Belgium, Holland or France, focused on light meat and cheese fare. They will also serve a few NW sandwiches and a bevy of intriguing sweets. I am very impressed with the offerings on their Spring menu.
The Noble Fir can be found at 5316 Ballard Ave. NW Seattle, WA 98119. The bar is situated nicely between some other Ballard favorites. You can get more info on how to get there by visiting their webpage.
Needless to say, we will be there soon to check out the new digs! Let us know if you visit and your opinion of the decor and service.
