What you'll do

Tour includes Reuben's Brews, Obec Brewing, and Stoup Brewing. Right in the center of Ballard's brewing district, this easy walk is less than a quarter of a mile but filled with great beers. Old World Beers and exciting new NW brews Family traditions, old world brews and innovative beers within an easy, relaxed walk. This tour features some of Seattle's most popular and newest breweries. We are all going to have a great time. It is only a short walk and at each brewery we'll try four amazing 4 oz. beer samples. Each brewery features traditional beer styles and we'll learn a bit about them, the brewery and some brewing history. These small neighborhood brew pubs are also famous for their innovative and unique styles. Whether you are an experienced cerevisaphile or trying your first ale or lager I guarantee you that you'll find something that you've never tasted before, something you might not care for, and something that you will love. If you have never been to Seattle's brewery scene you will find the atmosphere warm and inviting, and most brew pubs are family and pet friendly. If the date or tour doesn't work out for you I have three other tours that just might.

Your hosts

Since my first encounter with a Munich Beer Garden when I was in college, I've loved good beer. I moved to Ballard right when the Microbrewery Renaissance was taking off in 1984. This inspired me to make a documentary called "Beer and Ale: A Video Guide." I've been giving pub crawls and guided tours to my friends for years and decided to expand my circle of friends to include visitors to the Pacific Northwest, so I started Seattle Brewery Walking Tours. This gives me a chance to meet new and interesting people and share a beer from the breweries that I love. I am a Level 1 Cicerone, Certified Beer Server and I'm looking forward tasting some great beers with you.

Where you'll be

Our tour begins at Reuben's Brews, one of the neighborhood's most popular spots. This brewery is truly a family affair. Stoup Brewing, or next stop, has that crazy, mixed-up Seattle, hipster, family vibe. We'll try four great northwest examples of some great beers. Our final stop is Ballard's newest micro-brewery. Obec is a Czech word (pronounced "O-Betz") meaning "community" and their ideal is to build community around beer.
