What you'll do

Our tours are now open.
The Old Ballard Brewery Tour includes Reuben's Brews, Peddler Brewery and Lagunitas Brewery. At a quarter mile, this is one of our shortest tours, but you will not find more great beer in a two-block area of any city in the country. Our tour starts and ends just a few short blocks from Old Ballard's Historic District. 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.

Tim was the best! He was welcoming to everyone and knowledgeable about the beer and breweries. We all had a great time with him and were able to try some delicious beer along the way. If anyone has an afternoon or evening to go on this brewery tour, I highly recommend it!

I booked this tour for my boyfriend's birthday and had absolutely no regrets about it. Tim was extremely accommodating, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and entertaining. The tour far exceeded expectations. Our only regret is that we're out of towners and unable to have more beers with him in the future. Thank you!

Our guide was Craig who was very versed in his understanding of beers! Craig's personality was wonderful and inviting and he had lots of background knowledge on the history of beers. Craig also had a great amount of information about the city of Seattle. In the end our group was satisfied and made new friends for life.

Tim is very knowledgeable and super friendly. He had a lot of interesting stories and he's also very inclusive - I was able to share my own experience in home brewing.

Tim is a lover of history, beer, and Ballard. Not necessarily in that order and not just those things. The stories and research that go into the experience will leave you feeling excited about beer and Seattle. You get to go out with a local beer expert, and hey, if you are insanely lucky, you get to meet one of the brewers and he will share some beer candy with you!
