View as Map

Image: [Grace]

Seattle is home to more than 40 breweries - that is one brewery for every 14,000 people! And this is only in the immediate city limits. Regionally, King County is home to dozens more. If you're not sure where to head in your neighborhood or are in town just for the weekend, it's time to discover a new local brewery that you may have never heard of before. Many breweries opened after a personal hobby as friendships turned into a professional ambition or as a way to pass down family brewing secrets - as is the case with Spinnaker Bay Brewing, Washington's only woman-run Brewery. In Fremont? Check out the quirky Fremont Brewing Company. Tired of that same old blonde? Head on over to Outlander Brewery and Pub for some creative concoctions you never would have thought of before.

Notice that your favorite spot for suds didn't make the list? Let us know in the comments or send us a tip.
