Lively, entertaining tours for beer enthusiasts (and non-enthusiasts too)!
Feel like having a quirky and knowledgeable DD for your next taproom-hopping adventure? Would you like to meet new beers with your newest friends? Do you want to check off three breweries from your bucket list? Then get your buns with these dogs! In this edition of Brew Barons, we hopped on a Road Dogs Tours van for a brewery tour around Seattle.
Dogs offers coffee, distillery, and brewery tours for some of Seattle’s new tasting rooms including Sound Spirits, Three Howls, Fremont Brewing, Schooner Exact Brewing, and many more! Our tour took us to Fremont to sample Hale’s Ales, Hilliard’s Beer, and Bad Jimmy. Our guide and driver, Jason, is quite the character to boot. He took free reign of the breweries and gave us a breakdown of the beer making process by pointing out the system in place at Hale’s, showing us the difference in regular, dark roasted, and malted barley at Hilliard’s, and the man-cave atmosphere of Bad Jimmy’s.
