According to my sources, Populuxe is the most family friendly brewery in Seattle. There is plenty of room for the kids, and their dogs, to run around and play games. There is a cornhole court and plenty of picnic tables for the entire family. For those of us enjoying their excellent beers there is a covered and heated patio with two fire pits, where we can sit back and enjoy the fun.Learn more...

Reuben's Brews

Reuben's is one of those family run breweries that have become part of the fabric of Ballard. Apparently owner and brew master Adam Robbings got hooked on brewing after Reuben, his one month old son, gave him a home brew kit as a present. I'm thinking the same thing but kids are smarter these days. Now the entire family is brewing award winning beers and all you need to do is stop by and try one or two. Learn more....

Stoup Brewing

If ever an example was needed, Stoup Brewing is the art and science of beer.  The brewers, Brad and Robyn, were actually scientists before they started brewing and their partner Lara was a lover of all things gusto, from great food to a great pour. As a team they are making some great beer in a great little brewery with an open taproom and spacious beer garden.  Learn more...

Jellyfish Brewing Company Logo

Jellyfish Brewing Company

If breweries had a family tree, the roots of Jellyfish Brewery's genealogical tree would be deep and wide, with roots in the University District’s Big Time Brewery and Alehouse, one of Seattle’s first craft breweries, and breweries in Denver, Austin and Tuscany, Italy. Nestled among the workshops, mechanical shops and warehouses on a back street, Jellyfish stays true to Georgetown’s working class roots while staying both hip and a little bit funky.
