“I have respect for beer.” -Russell Crowe

So do we, Russell. So do we. We hung out at breweries all over Seattle (work is tough, we know) and created a list of 5 of our favorite breweries around town. Check them out for yourselves and let us know if you agree!


1. Stoup Brewing Co.

Ballard, WA

Founded by a chemist, a former Biology teacher, and a thirsty connoisseur, Stoup Brewing is about as cool as you think it is. The beaker-style glasses and superb beer selection make for an unforgettable brewery experience. Oh – and did we mention it’s dog friendly? See you there.

2. Fremont Brewing Company

Fremont, WA

An urban beer garden with indoor and outdoor seating, firepits, and complimentary pretzels – yeah you heard me, FREE PRETZELS. As if the the beer wasn’t enough, right? Excellent service, atmosphere, and happy hour, makes Fremont Brewing an excellent stop on your brewery tour.

3. Maritime Pacific Brewing Co.

Maritime Pacific is a family-owned Micro-Brewery and Brew Pub in the Ballard District of Seattle. Most people you ask will probably tell you how bomb the slider burgers are here (and yes, yes they are), but the 15 rotating taps are sure to please just as well! Try the onion rings while you’re at it…you won’t be disappointed. Scouts honor.


4. Lucky Envelope Brewing

Awesome selection of brews, indoor and outdoor seating (patio seating season is upon us!!!), and whatta ya know – dog friendly! Need I say more?

5. Ghostfish Brewing Company

*Gluten free beer/food options now available! For starters, the gluten-free macaroni and cheese here is good…really good…and the Grapefruit IPA is another personal fave. But from a completely unbiased third-party observer’s opinion, Ghostfish has great food, great beer, great vibes, and they even hold yoga events sometimes! Very cool. Namaste.

Everything you just read (or skimmed, don’t worry I don’t blame you) is totally opinion based. Try these places out and let us know what you think! Or just do what we all do and Google “Seattle breweries” and play eenie meenie miney mo. Either way, if you respect beer like us (and Russell Crowe), you really can’t go wrong. Cheers!

Hi, I'm Ashleigh! Welcome to Seattle Travel, my little piece of beautiful PNW. This is home and I'm here to share all my experiences so visitors and locals alike can find the best experiences this part of the country has to offer. I started Seattle Travel in 2012 as a way to journal my experiences and over the years have been encouraged by family and friends to open up my adventures to everyone. I actively seek out the best food, activities, and day trips and give you a local perspective.  The Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful areas in the world and my goal is to let you explore it to the fullest.
