What you'll do

Our tours are now open.
Tour includes Reuben's Brews, Obec Brewing, and Stoup Brewing.
Right in the center of Ballard's brewing district, this easy walk is less than a quarter of a mile but filled with great beers.
Old World Beers and exciting new NW brews
Family traditions, old world brews and innovative beers within an easy, relaxed walk. This tour features some of Seattle's most popular and newest breweries. We are all going to have a great time. It is only a short walk and at each brewery we'll try four amazing 4 oz. beer samples. 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.
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

Our tour begins at Reuben's Brews, one of the neighborhood's most popular spots. This brewery is truly a family affair.

Stoup Brewing, or next stop, has that crazy, mixed-up Seattle, hipster, family vibe. We'll try four great northwest examples of some great beers.

Our final stop is Ballard's newest micro-brewery. Obec is a Czech word (pronounced "O-Betz") meaning "community" and their ideal is to build community around beer.

Rated 4.86 out of 5 from 21 reviews.

My husband and I loved the beer tour with Tim! He is very knowledgeable and has endless stories to tell. We had so much fun talking with him and learning about how different types of beers came about. He was courteous enough to open up a day for us that he didn’t already have a tour going because we weren’t able to make it to any other dates. Don’t hesitate to book!

Tim es un anfritión de primera, que domina ampliamente el tema de cervezas, su historia, producción y todo lo que conlleva. Es amable, atento y siempre dispuesto a que te guste mas de una cerveza. Persona muy culta, totalmente recomendado!

Fun, Informative, and Entertaining Tour I’m so happy we signed up. We loved it and appreciated that Tim did the tour even though it was just us two who signed up. For two breweries, we sat outside. One we were inside, and the brewery had its giant door open.

Tim’s stories are worth the price alone! The beers are excellent and varied leaving you with an appreciation of the craft of beer and the area. A great time well spent.

The amazing beer came in second to Tim being the best thing about this tour. He has so much knowledge and his delivery is genuine. I felt like this tour was more of an immersive play experience! With each brewery Tim took us on a story telling adventure about the history of each beer and how to taste all of the differences. With COVID there were some restrictions but we felt safe and very well taken care of. This is a MUST DO for all beer lovers visiting Seattle! THANK YOU TIM!
