Rumors have been swirling about the legendary San Francisco temple to microbrews, Toronado, getting a new location here in Seattle.
The rumors were confirmed today on Toronado Seattle’s Facebook page: “Get ready Ravenna / Roosevelt Neighborhood you have a Toronado 1205 NE 65th St.”
Opening day is in roughly two months.

Word recently broke that Toronado was preparing to open a third location right here in Seattle. That information was confirmed in early May, when Matt Bonney shared the [Toronado Seattle] logo above his Facebook page with the caption: “Coming to a neighbor near you!” You might know Matt Bonney from Brouwer’s Cafe, the Burgundian, and Bottleworks. He’s a well known figure in the Seattle craft beer scene, and with him at the helm, I know Toronado Seattle will be off to a great start.”
The original Toronado opened in 1987 on Haight Street and has become a legend for its extensive and exclusive microbrew offerings. The second location opened 21 years later in San Diego. While the SF location doesn’t serve food, San Diego serves up burgers, spicy or smoked mac and cheese, a variety of sausages, among other dishes.
