Beerventures

Seattle Beerventure 2014-2015

The Seattle Beerventure was completed on June 24, 2015
45 breweries/232 beers

An overall recap
I visited every brewery in the Seattle city limits between June 29, 2014-June 24, 2015.  There were a few openings/closings that I did my best to work around, but overall, we did some WORK.

Why beer?
I started out as a merlot & margarita girl when I began drinking in college.  It wasn’t until about 2009 when I started getting into beer in Moscow, ID with Coeur d’Alene Brewing Company’s Huckleberry Ale.  Since then, my love and interest of craft beer has grown to include more than just fruit beers, but most recently spiked in the last couple of years.  After practically living at Icicle Brewing Company during the summer of 2013, really wanting to eat as locally as possible, learning to cook with beer, and then working at a pizza place with 14 different (all local!) beers & ciders on draft, I’m officially obsessed.

Please join me!
I am always down to hit up a brewery, new or old.  Let’s bring a board game, grab a tasting flight, and have a grand old time.  I will do my best to keep the below list updated for fellow Seattle beer lovers!

Please please please check out my interactive Pinterest map if you want to create your own Seattle beerventure!  I linked up every brewery in the city limits, and the map makes it so easy to plan a route.
