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.
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

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
Beer is my bucket list,

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.
