Fishermen's Terminal Brewery Tour

Visit Urban Family Brewing, Figurehead Brewing and Rooftop Brew Co.
around Seattle's historic Fishermen's Terminal



We are not going to lie, this is our longest tour and it is not for wimps. Our 1.2 mile trek winds through an industrial district, a working fishermen's port and past the train yards. Seattle's historic Fishermen's Terminal is the home port for the North Pacific Fishing Fleet and the home of three uniquely Northwest breweries. Actually, the walk is not that hard and you will be rewarded with an interesting tour and some great beers.


Urban Family Brewing Company

Hidden among the warehouses and industrial businesses servicing the maritime port is a gem of a brewery originally inspired by the Belgian and French Farmhouse brewing traditions. A huge selection of in-house brewed sour ales and IPAs makes this one of the more unique breweries in the neighborhood with some some very unique beers. Old world traditions and innovative northwest styles served side by side. Learn more about Urban Family Brewing Company.

Figurehead Brewing Company

Across the street from the Terminal this small brewery honors the history and culture of this seagoing neighborhood. The brewers also honor the brewing history and styles of the old world while maintaining a contemporary edge. A seaman from the 19th century and a fisherman just back from the Bering Sea will find something to quench their thirst and brighten their spirits. Learn more about Figurehead Brewing Company. 

Fishermen's Terminal

Our walk goes through this historic, working port and by the Fishermen's Memorial, dedicated to the nearly 500 Seattle men and women who have lost their lives at sea since 1900. Home port of the North Pacific Fishing Fleet and several vessels featured in the Discovery Channel's "The Deadliest Catch."

Rooftop Brew Company

In the shadow of the Ballard Bridge this brewery is steeped in the traditions of Northwest brewing. After our one-mile plus walk we will be ready to enjoy their year-round, rooftop patio and their excellent beers. Hoppy IPAs, coffee infused porters and seasonal beers are part of everyday life in Seattle and our family friendly, neighborhood breweries makes all of this possible.
