The Best Brewery Tours in Seattle
Sample Seattle’s best beverages, and let someone else do the driving. Road Dog’s popular Seattle Brewery Tour stops at three of the city’s finest craft breweries, where guests learn all about beer, the brewing process, and the local beer scene; with lots of tasting along the way. If spirits are more your thing, their Seattle Distillery Tour will introduce you to the major players and tastes in Seattle’s growing small-batch distillery scene, while their Coffee Tour caters to the caffeinated crowd. Tours are offered daily, and last about three hours. Road Dog Tours’ 14-person passenger vans pick up and drop off near Pike Place Market, and private group tours are available on request.
Tours meet at Seattle Beer Company: 1427 Western Ave.
Since 1989, Pike Brewing has been making great craft beer in the heart of downtown Seattle, just next door to Pike Place Market. For a small fee, visitors can tour the facilities, learn all about beer and how it’s made, and sample the brewery’s best offerings. Brewery tours run from 3-4pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays, and cost $5/person (free for folks under 21). Private tours for groups of 6-20 people are held earlier in the afternoons, from 12-1:30pm, include a tasting of 7 Pike beers, and cost $20/person. Free evening tours are offered Wednesday through Saturday at 6:30, but don’t include samples – pair this one with dinner and a beer (or two) at their pub. All tours must be booked in advance.
Tours meet at Pike Brewing Company: 1415 1st Avenue.
