Hey PNWers, and especially beer lovers; if you live near the Seattle then RedHook is most likely near and dear to your heart. If you’ve never been to their brewery to take their tour, you really should go. Normally I right about different beers from our region that I have come across and love. Today I am going to share the magical experience that is: “RedHook Brewery Tour!” First important detail, this tour is going to cost you. The total cost for this tour is: $1.
For that single dollar, you get a lot really. You get a fun, and entertaining tour, that teaches you a lot about beer, and about RedHook itself. On top of that, you get a taster glass (which in the gift shop will cost you $2) this tour has already more than paid for itself here. Not only do you get a taster glass filled with a sample of beer as you enter, but that glass will be filled with different samples at least four more times.
If the group on tour is able to drink each sample, without throwing any out in the ‘Bucket of Shame’ then another sample of your choosing will be doled out to all in the group. During the tour your guide will share the history of RedHook, give you fun facts about the brewery itself as well as thedifferent style of beers in which you are trying. I would share my favorite tidbit and story, but I’ll save it so you can enjoy it on your tour.
A little piece of advice when you go on this tour, eat before you go. You will be drinking 24-30 oz. of beer (or more if your friends you go with can’thandle it, which happens to me a lot). The tours start at 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm get there a bit early to ensure you make the tour. If you miss one of the early ones you can enjoy a meal in the Pub and maybe a beer, just to get you started.
