Title: Going to Seattle, looking for Brewpubs/Breweries with great lagers
Post by: John Davignon on October 11, 2021, 08:16:13 pm
Going to Seattle, looking for Brewpubs/Breweries with great lagers. I know some great Hazy/Juicy breweries in Seattle but not familiar with one with good lagers.

In that area, you can't do much better than Chuckanut.  I also recommend Lucky Envelop.

Queen Anne Beer Hall is fun, they always have tons of German beers on tap.  Chuckanut isn't really close to Seattle.

There are a bunch of good breweries in the Ballard area. Some of my favorites are Reuben's Brews, Obec, Maritime Pacific, and Stoup. Lagunitas has a tap room in the neighborhood too. In all, I think there are 12 or 14 breweries and a couple of tap rooms. Here's a link to a site that highlights some of them:

My favorite in greater Seattle is Ravenna Brewing. It's a very small brewery with a lineup of great beers. https://taplist.io/taplist-766710

Thanks, Bob357  The link was great, not sure I would have found many of the Ballard breweries without it. Some look very interesting - I like odd brews when I travel.  Johnd

Our old Friend Tom, Schmidlin's brewery Postdoc Brewing. I'm sure he has some lagers on as well. I think it is in Redmond IIRC, short drive.

Yes, a nice place to visit great beers, good outside seating by a park, dog friendly.
