Description

TOUR INCLUDES LUCKY ENVELOPE BREWING, POPULUXE BREWING, AND BAD JIMMY'S BREWING. 
Right in the center of Ballard's brewing district, this easy walk is less than half a mile but filled with great beers. You will get to try some of the beers that have made Ballard one of the most famous brewing districts in the world. 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.

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 here in Washington. Even if you think you are familiar with Lagunitas there will be something here you have never tried before. 

NW Peaks Brewery

NW Peaks' Bergschrund Taproom occupies a space that has been a tavern since 1947. This nano-brewery now brews beers that are inspired by the Alpine peaks of the Cascade and Olympic mountains. The owner and brewmaster is an avid mountaineer and you will get to sample ales named after NW Peaks such as: Eldorado Pale, Redoubt Red and Challenger IPA. 

Peddler Brewing Company

We'll end our tour at Peddler Brewing Company. As you may guess from the name this brewery is geared toward bicycle riders (pun intended). But everyone enjoys their beers, even walkers like us. Besides the wall of broken bicycles, a large beer garden and plenty of bike racks you will enjoy some of the finest beers in Ballard.
