Seattle Trip in June.....Must Visit Breweries
Like the title says, what brewpub/brewery is a must visit. I'm going to be on a businness trip but have a couple days to myself. Thanks in advance!

Last time I was in Seattle (8-9 years ago) I went to Hale's ales, Redhook, and Pyramid. After Pyramid we walk next door and watched the Mariners play.

I'm jealous.

If you aren't leaving the city I would go to Hale's Ales and Pyramid, sadly I have never been to those. Redhook is good one 25 min from the city in woodinville but if you want really micro brewery status go to Redmond (just as far as woodinville) and go to Mac N Jacks and Black Raven. Black raven is only 3 years old and is incredibly delicious.

I'm out in Bellevue on business this month so I'll be scoping a few places out including Naked City of course.

I forgot Mac n Jacks. I didn't go there but I did drink their Amber. Mmmmmm.

Well welcome to the PNW Bobby_M! You are fortunate, we have had some really nice weather these last two weeks. If you don't go to the mac n jacks brewery most any place with more than two taps usually has at least one of their beers, they have a huge following.

... I work just a few hundered feet from them and often smell their mash in the mornings...:D

Following... I will be there at NHC time...

There are lots of good ones (Hales, Maritime Pacific, Georgetown, Black Raven ...) but if I had to narrow it down ... here are my personal favorites:

Elliot Bay (www.elliottbaybrewing.com)
Elysian (www.elysianbrewing.com)

They both have excellent beers (and food).

I've been to Black Raven a few times, their beer is good too ... but no food.

IMO, Pyramid and Redhook are kind of so-so. Their beer isn't bad, just not great.

All times are GMT. The time now is 04:14 PM.
