Brewery Tour - The Breweries of Old Ballard

Take a spin around one of America's most exciting beer scenes in this historic district.

This quarter-mile brewery tour with Guide Tim will take you through one of the richest beer-brewing regions in Seattle.

You'll also receive a free gift bag with tasting glasses and more at the start of the tour!

Your tour begins and ends near the historic district of Old Ballard—one of the city's most diverse dining areas—with an explanation of the various styles of beer and what to expect when tasting each. In total, you'll sample a generous collection of 12 different beers ranging from traditional to experimental, with an inside look at the brewing process during the final stop.

Though not a brewer himself, Guide Tim began exploring brewing culture at age 21. He discovered the art of craft beer traveling through Europe and ultimately landed in Seattle just as the microbrewing movement was launching. His belief that “life is too short for bad beer” led him to create local pub crawls and tours for friends. Now, Guide Tim shares his love of worthy brews by leading brewery tours in and around the Seattle area.
