What you'll do

Due to Covid 19 Restrictions, tours have been suspended for the remainder of the year.
Tour includes Populuxe Brewing, Lucky Envelope Brewing and Urban Family Brewing.
Each tour is led by an experienced Cicerone. Right in the center of Ballard's brewing district, our ¼ mile walk is filled with great beers. You will try some of the beers that have made Ballard one of the most famous brewing districts in the world, with some unique ales, lagers and something special. At each brewery we'll try four amazing 4 oz. beer samples for a total of 12 different beers. During our walk we will learn about the different styles of beers, how to taste and enjoy a beer, how beer is made, the history of beer, why Seattle is at the center of the craft beer Renaissance. 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.
If the date or tour doesn't work out for you I have three other tours that just might.

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

We will start out at Populuxe Brewing. These folks brew from the heart and we are going to try some sensational brews. Our next stop is Lucky Envelope Brewing, just a small brewing operation built in a warehouse that is open, neighborly and pouring some great beers. Our final stop is Urban Family’s brand new brewery and taproom. There will be some familiar styles and something you never expected to find.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 13 reviews.

We would totally recommend this tour to everyone we know. Timothy is very communicative and knowledgable. We enjoyed every minute with him. It was pretty cool, we all tried a beer that neither of us had drank before. We definitely left the tour more knowledgable about beer. We even started liking beers that we previously did not like before.

This is a great activity and Tim has a wealth of knowledge. You can really see his passion come through when he talks about the history and cultural aspects. I’d like to do one of his other tours in the future!

Great tour of local breweries that are out of the main touristy areas. Loved trying the different beers and learning about the area and craft brewing. Would definitely recommend!

3시간 동안 3군데의 양조장에서 총 12잔의 맥주를 맛 보게 됩니다. 맥주를 기록하고 평가할 수 있는 종이도 주고, 색깔, 아로마, 맛 등을 보면서 맥주를 즐길 수 있습니다. Tim은 매우 친절하고 맥주에 대해서 잘 알며 평소에 맥주를 좋아하긴 했지만 자세한 지식은 없었던 분들께 추천합니다. Tim is super friendly and nice tour guide. He has a lot of knowledge of beer. If you love beer and meet someone I highly recommend this tour!

I highly recommend this tour! Timothy is the nicest tour guide and so friendly. He was prompt and knowledgeable. I have been on a number of other tours on various trips and back home and I can honestly say I learned so much more about beer on this one trip than I have on all other tours combined. This experience was once-in-a-lifetime. Book it!

Tim was very patient about all the questions the groups asked him. He made the tour really fun and enjoyable. I showed up hungover on a beer drinking tour and still left feeling great about the whole experience!
