I love a little quirkiness with my beer, because with so many craft breweries in Seattle, a unique character is really what sets each establishment, and brew, apart. The Holy Basil Pale Ale by Outlander Brewery fits this measure well—it strikes just the right balance of eccentric and uniquely delicious.
Walking into The Pike Brewing Company isn’t like walking into a brew pub. It’s like walking into a beer museum.
The walls of Pike are lined – floor to ceiling, and in every nook and cranny – with antique posters, …
Stone Brewing says goodbye to their brewmaster, AB InBev gets caught in a monopoly, and U.S. Bank Stadium is starting a craft beer program.

If you’re at all familiar with Seattle, you know that Capitol Hill is one neighborhood within its borders that captures the true flavor, eccentricity, complexity and energy of the dynamic and evolving Emerald City. Capitol Hill – or just ‘the hill’ – is the beating heart of Seattle’s experimental dining, vibrant nightlife, and overall pride. Needless to say, if one was to have a music festival somewhere within the city’s borders – and in the middle of Seattle’s summertime bliss – the hill is the obvious choice. Queue Capitol Hill Block Party – a three day music festival that, like the neighborhood that houses it, effortlessly captures its city’s exuberance.

Editor’s note: This absolutely real story took place in 2004. Due to Rainier’s release of Pale Mountain Ale, we figured we’d give you a heads up just to make sure you don’t leave any of the good stuff laying around your campsite.
For me, a perfect evening includes a few, key things. Good company is, of course, a top priority. This is followed by great food – preferably cheese, though I am at times open to bread and other dairy products. And …
It’s an exciting time to be in Seattle. The cold, grey weather is shedding itself – transforming into long, euphoric days of sunshine. The Bumbershoot lineup has been announced, and is looking absolutely superb. The light rail has finally — finally! — expanded to Capital Hill and the University of Washington, giving us all a new opportunity to escape blood boiling traffic. But the best news of all, at least for Emerald City beer lovers, is that Seattle Beer Week is kicking off on May 12 for ten sweet days of celebration, experimentation and collaboration.
Though we have to wait a few more days until Seattle Beer Week is officially underway, Reuben’s Brews has given us a taste of what we can expect from the festival. Literally. And we must say, it’s damn near perfection.
The countdown is on. Seattle Beer Week is almost here.
This year’s celebration will take place from May 12th to May 22nd of this year, and Seattleites have quite a bit to look forward to. Expect beer tastings and debuts, …
We don’t try and hide it. We are really, really big fans of Fremont Brewing Company. The people are great, and the beer is better. Or is the beer great, and the people are better? Whatever it may be – …
If you live in Seattle — or have ever stepped foot within Seattle — you have realized that Pike Place Market is an institution.
Every day, hundreds of local vendors and thousands of Seattle residents and tourists flood to …

West Seattle Brewing Company is one of the quieter breweries in the Seattle area, but that doesn’t make it any less quintessentially Seattle. The brewery, which reopened after renovations last summer, offers a coffee bar for early morning commuters, 18 taps, and a kid/dog-friendly space that has been called “West Seattle’s living room.” To top it all off, the Seattle Sounders 2016 schedule has a permanent location at the entrance of the bar. West Seattle Brewing truly offers the unassuming, laid back experience that Seattle breweries are known for, complete with plentiful options, friendly staff, and – most importantly – delicious beer.
Haley Keller, co-founder of Peddler Brewing Company, wasn’t always a biker. Come to think of it, she didn’t always like beer, either.
“I would say that both of those were [Dave’s] loves, not necessarily mine,” Haley admits.
But it …
Seattle, one of the fastest growing US cities, is a mixture of business, wilderness, food, music, coffee, and – of course – beer. Its tenants include everyone from your pink-haired neighbor that works at a boutique featuring solely local arts and crafts, to the posh fashionista that is able to strut her stuff at Nordstrom corporate, to the plaid-donning Amazonian, who types code all week with the goal of treating himself to a trip into the mountains come the weekend. There is something here for everyone, which is why so many people, cut from so many cloths, have found their way to the Emerald City. Seattle, at its core, is an explosion of culture, curiosity and adventure that has encouraged locals to continue sink their roots in deeper. It’s also encouraged transplants to plant new ones.
ABV: 5.2% | IBU: 18
Though all of us Seattle Porchdrinkers like to think that great beer is Seattle’s most popular exported beverage, there is one Seattle drink that may beat even beer in terms of reputation and recognition, and that drink is coffee. As the home of Starbucks, Tully’s and many other roasters, Seattle’s coffee industry rivals its beer industry for options, quality and appreciation. In acknowledgment of the popularity and similarity of the two industries, Two Beers Brewing Co. created the Cold Brew Coffee Brown Ale.
ABV: 5.6% | IBU: 68
If you don’t live in Seattle, the letters KEXP might not mean much to you. If you do live in Seattle, you know that these are not just four, jumbled letters. KEXP is 90.3 FM – the radio station bringing the Emerald City innovative and experimental culture, groundbreaking music and now, great… beer?
The first time I spoke with Matt Lincecum and Sara Nelson, co-founders of Fremont Brewing, was on the eve of their expansion into Oregon. After five years, the Seattle brewery would be distributing in their neighbor to the south, …
