Part of the Ballard Brewery District, short walk from Hale's, simple taproom with house beers on tap. Food can be brought in, and Bourbon and Bones is close by and recommended.
Simple taproom with full selection of house-brewed beers, which happen to be some of the best in Seattle.
One of Seattle's newest breweries and taprooms, opened and run by former Elysian brewer Steve Luke. Interesting and well-made range of ales and, yes, a pretty good Pilsner lager too.
Simple, utilitarian taproom with an interesting range of beers from a brewery that made its debut in September 2016. To the west of the Ballard Bridge, so actually in Magnolia - Interbay, and close to Urban Family Brewing.
Tasting room and small brewery in South Seattle (Columbia City). No kitchen, but food may be brought in.
Technically, Future Primitive is just outside Seattle city limits in White Center, but let's not quibble over a couple of blocks. Founded by veterans of Seattle's craft beer scene, this is the third brewery to occupy this building. Beers comprise a good range of craft-beer standards, and the kettles are helmed by veteran brewer Kevin Watson. Food truck permanently parked outside provides beer-friendly snack options, and there's covered outdoor seating too.
Approach this one with respect; Holy Mountain was one of Seattle's most-anticipated brewery openings ever, and it continues to make sought-after beers. Saisons, farmhouse ales, sours, barrel-aging projects, and more. Consider this one a must.
Former home of Hilliard's brewery, now an outpost for California's Lagunitas Brewing. Cavernous taproom and brewery, simple interior, and now there's an on-prem kitchen.
Small cozy taproom plus beer garden in good weather at this small-scale nanobrewery, with beers named after local mountains and other geographical sites. Pre-filled growlers available to go, too.
Roomy taproom and brewery serving south Seattle and nearby watering holes with house brews. Formerly Spinnaker Bay Brewing, but changed hands after owner became ill and decided to exit the brewing business, taken over by NW Peaks Brewing.
Challenging to pronounce correctly (looks like "obek" but pronounced "obetz"), this is a newer Ballard Brewery, conveniently situated between Stoup and Rueben's taprooms. Broadly themed after Czech lagers, the variety on offer is much wider than that. Big taproom, beer garden, friendly owners and bar staff.
Ravenna Brewing is a brewery and taproom that serves the neighborhood. Simple and functional inside, brewery visible on the lower level, outdoor seating in good weather.
Simple no-frills taproom with big selection of crowd-pleasing beers brewed on-premises. Taproom moved to 14th NW location in May 2015, bigger with more seating and roomy beer deck in front. Reuben's has rapidly emerged as one of the best in the region. Photo above is original location a couple of blocks away.
Taproom of Schooner Exact brewery, with kitchen offering a good-quality pub food.
Actually, this is in the Central District, but it's close enough to Capitol Hill to be included. This started off as one of the tiniest taprooms in town, and the brewery itself wasn't a lot bigger. It's grown a bit since then, and the beer range has gotten more varied and interesting as well. Worth dropping by.
Re-opened in June 2015 after hiatus, now featuring food and coffee alongside house-brewed beer.
Tasting room for popular Two Beers Brewery, and often the primary venue for special limited-edition releases. No kitchen, but food trucks on summer Fridays.
