Even though I know plenty about beer, I'd actually like a guided type tour.. one that shows all the equipment, and of course samples/gift shop..

as opposed to just going to a brewery to just eat and gaze at the equipment behind the glass.

the years I lived up there as a teen, sadly I wasn't into the hobby at the time. I do still have a few friends I talk to up there - mostly in Everett. I can find out if interested..

Redhook - they do a very nice tour with LOTS of samples. :)
And it's practically an off flavor training for diacetyl :cross:

There are very few truly good brewery tours and I don't know of one in Seattle but I third or ninth or whatever Naked City. Second best place to have a beer in the state after the venerable Walking Man.

Redhook and Mac and Jacks are the only ones locally that do scheduled tours, as far as I know, and they're a bit of a jaunt from downtown... and Mac and Jacks is only 3pm on Sundays. Maybe Pike Brewing does tours too, I'm not sure. They're downtown, right next to Pike Place market.

But for just good bevvies, I have to wholeheartedly endorse Schooner Exact and Epic Ales, which are both relatively close to the piers, where I can only assume your cruise ship is docking.

If you want to take a drive, head up to Snoqualmie Brewing company. Rande is the head brewer and I am sure he can show you the whole process. Good beer too.

The old Rainier Brewery, which ran 1884 to 1999, now houses Emerald City Brewing, Tully`s coffee, Bartholomew`s Winery and Red Soul Motorcycles. Haven`t been there since they closed Rainier but that would be my pick!

I have been to Big Al, Schooner, Georgetown, and Redhook. Big Al was my favorite.
