The topic about says it. I am going house hunting in Seattle tomorrow through monday and wanted input on what beers I should try. Also for the wine snobs out there, what wines should I go with.

As far as wines go I would go check out the Woodinville area. In particular check out Airfield Estates. They have a tasting room in Woodinville, and I find their wines to be amazing!

Where beer is concerned check out Big E Ales up in the Lynnwood area. They have a small restaurant and bar right at their production facility. They have some delicious beer!

I will suggest Pike Brewery which is very close to pike market where they throw the fish around! And Elysian, amazing beers there as well! I had an amazing time at Pike Brewery, very cool brewpub with tons to look at, and the bartenders are a ton of fun, specially if your a homebrewer!

Agreed! Brewing Network is actually holding its event at the NHC this year at Elysian Brewing!

Elysian does make great beers. I have never been that happy with the experience at Elysian Fields.

There are tons of great places around the area depending on how far you can go and how much time you have. A couple of my favorites are:

Naked City Brewery and Tap house
8564 Greenwood Avenue North Seattle, WA 98103
(206) 838-6299

Black Raven Brewing
14679 Northeast 95th Street Redmond, WA 98052
(425) 881-3020

Have a great trip.

Pyramid, Pike, Elysian, Mcmenamins and Naked City are all right near downtown Seattle. It would help to know what area your hunting in as there are a bunch of really good craft brewers around. For example The Harmon or E9 in Tacoma are both really good, there's Mac and Jacks and Red Hook are further north. Enjoy your trip

Thanks for the replies. I am staying downtown but will be hunting in the queen anne district/fremont area, maybe as far north as shoreline.

If you want a bar in the Fremont area go to Brouwer's Cafe. They have the largest selection of bottled and draft beers that I have seen in the area, as well as quite a few different whiskeys.

Or if you're downtown check out The Taphouse Grill http://taphousegrill.com/beer.html. They have 160 beers on tap and looking over this beer list shows quite a few local beers from outside the city.
