Description

from Old Ballard Brewery Tour
Our tour starts and ends just a few short blocks from Old Ballard's Historic District. At only 860 feet, this is our shortest tour. However, you will not find more incredible beer in a two-block area of any city in the country. In our guided beer tasting we will learn what to look for when you are tasting a beer and what makes each style unique.

We'll sample 12 different beers that cover traditional, old-world brewing styles and new, experimental beers that you will find only in these breweries. We will learn why the close proximity of Northwest barley fields, the most productive hops growing region in the world, and visionary brewing pioneers have made Seattle the center of the craft brewing renaissance.

Itinerary

  • Lagunitas Taproom and Beer Sanctuary: We begin our tour just a few short blocks from Ballard's Historic district at Lagunitas Taproom and Beer Sanctuary. One of Ballard's newest breweries is actually one of California's oldest. The Ballard brewery features old favorites and beers only brewed in Washington. Even if you think you are familiar with Lagunitas there will be something here you have never tried before. We will also get a close up look at the brewing process.

  • NW Peaks Brewery: NW Peaks' Bergschrund Taproom occupies a space that has been a tavern since 1947, with an incredible hardwood bar. The owner and brewmaster, an avid mountaineer, brews beers that are inspired by the Alpine peaks of the Cascade and Olympic mountains. Classic Old World styles are served along with contemporary Northwest beers. New styles and seasonal beers make every visit unique.

  • Peddler Brewing Company: We'll end our tour at Peddler Brewing Company. As you may have guessed from the name, this brewery is geared toward bicycle riders as well as families and dogs. Inside there is the wall of bicycle parts. Outside is a large, year-round beer garden and plenty of bicycle racks. Find a bench and enjoy a beer.
