Populuxe is a fantastic last stop if you're doing a Ballard brewery crawl for a few reasons. For starters, their beer is delicious, which makes a great case for “saving the best for last.” The indoor tasting area isn’t much, but they have a big backyard with plenty of seating. Lastly, the firepit makes an IPA taste even better after the sun has gone down, we think.
