Seattle is the coffee capital of the United States. That doesn’t mean that we don’t enjoy other beverages, though. A wealth of vibrant, craft beer-loving people populates this city as well.  Lucky for you, Seattle is also home to some of the best brews in the Pacific Northwest. In this article, we’ll be highlighting the top 5 breweries in Seattle that we think you should check out.

Georgetown Brewing

Georgetown Brewing’s website has the motto “darn tasty beer” featured prominently on the welcome page. We couldn’t agree more.

Their tasting room is open 6 days a week and gives you the opportunity to sample all their beer—get this—for free. Though the brewery itself doesn’t currently serve pints, you can take a growler or cans to go.

Hellbent Brewing Company prides itself on being a community of open-minded and welcoming people who enjoy devilishly good beer. A wide variety of highly touted stouts, IPAs, and pale ales make this place a must visit.

The bar has a modern feel to it, so you’ll find yourself surrounded by lots of metal. All of the employees are very friendly and easy to talk to.

Holy Mountain Brewing

After Hellbent, we just couldn’t pass up the chance to throw in this juxtaposition. Let’s be clear though, Holy Mountain Brewing has undoubtedly earned its spot as one of the best breweries in Seattle.

The selection of beers here is always changing since they don’t produce anything yearlong. One thing you can be sure of is that you’ll find a beer that was stored in an oak barrel, something that Holy Mountain has become known for.
