Renton, WA – The Brewmaster’s Taproom, and sister company, The Brewmaster’s Bakery are opening a storefront together in the Benson Heights area of Renton Tuesday, August 9, 2016 with Grand Opening activities kicking off Saturday, August 13, 2016. The kid- and dog-friendly establishment will offer TVs to watch the Seahawks, Sounders and Mariners, along with a great outdoor seating area to enjoy the weather. Patrons will be able to bring outside food into the taproom.

The Brewmaster’s Taproom and The Brewmaster’s Bakery complement each other and combine to create a “circle of life” concept, serving craft beer alongside baked goods made using spent grain from local breweries. Spent grain is the most plentiful byproduct of the brewing process and the typical brewery produces thousands of pounds of the stuff every week. Although the post-brewing barley is of no use to brewers, it is still a valuable food product and, in the right hands, can be used to create a variety of delicious, nutritious treats.

Along with a wide selection of bottled and canned beers, The Brewmaster’s Taproom will offer draft beer from some of its partner breweries, with 20 craft beers on tap, alongside draft cider and root beer. They will feature beers from small, new breweries that are just starting out, as well as beers from more recognizable breweries, including unique brews often available only at the breweries’ taprooms.

As for food, the new taproom will offer the company’s flagship line of granolas, along with an extended line of baked goods, like breads, cookies, caramels, and anything else the baker dreams up. Everything The Brewmaster’s Bakery creates makes use of spent grain, beer, or other beer ingredients. They also produce a line of dog treats and donate a portion of the profits from every sale to Summit Assistance Dogs of Anacortes, Washington.

The Brewmaster’s Bakery was founded in March 2015 by Marley Rall, who spent years watching her husband and in-laws homebrew, wondering how to make use of the spent grain that each brewing cycle produced.

Rall often jokes, “It was really my vanity that started all of this; I really just wanted my in-laws to like me. But now I’m excited to bring craft beer and baked goods to the Renton area where it’s so desperately needed.”

To make the taproom and bakery come to life, Rall relied on help from Parteek Singh and the Green River College Small Business Assistance Center.

The Brewmaster’s Taproom is located at 2000 Benson Road South, Renton, WA 98055
