Interesting stop in the Georgetown district (duh). Not really a tasting room, just a place where you can fill growlers, but you can taste any of their beers, and they are very generous with the samples, without even charging anything. Service was astute, though not terribly friendly. Place was busy when we were there. Beer quality was average, with a couple of above average ones. Not terribly memorable other than the free samples, but may as well include it on a south Seattle brewery crawl.

A huge warehouse brewery with a pretty large tasting/growler room. No cost here just ask and you will get a sample of what you like. They know their stuff and although without tables and chairs, there is a comfort and community feel about it. Beer is pretty mediocre, with a few exceptions, but a bunch of free ticks makes this a decent stop.

I wasnít going to rate this place but decided to because no one seems to give a shit about it - as this is apparently a long-extant, very established regional brewery, I guess I canít say Iím surprised - nothing new and cool going on here - this is, however, a huge, efficient, clean, and impressive operation - large, modern interior for the tasting room, with giant sliding doors leading to the impressively large brewing operation - pretty large list of brews, with some or all of what were apparently their flagships, plus quite a few seasonal and special brews, ranging in style from lagers to imperial stouts - no pints, but all samples are completely free, and they donít seem to mind how many you try - very cheap growler fills (about 8 bucks), plus a few bombers for sale - I thought the beer was well-made, with the exception of one (a bomber of dubbel consumed later proved to be quite go, as well) - I think this place is cool - come here if you want to see a piece of Seattle brewing tradition, or if you want to see just how well a brewing operation can be run - or keep exclusively visiting nano-breweries making tamarind Berliner weisses - what the fuck do I care?

Georgetown Brewing is a simple place. They usually have five beers available in growlers and sometimes have something seasonal as well. All the beers are available for tasting from taps, but they donít serve full pints or food. Their beers are all top-notch in quality--and the seasonal beers are remarkable, so get one whenever they are available. Georgetownís growler system is THE BEST Iíve encountered. The growlers are filled by a machine, so the beer stays carbonated and fresh for over a week if you donít open it. Once youíve purchased your growler, you just bring it back (rinsed out) and they give you a newly filled one that has been stored in the refrigerator. They also sell kegs. The staff is always friendly, and the prices are exceptionally low--especially when considering the quality of the beer. They also have a small section of t-shirts and souvenirs.

(Visited 09/2012 on the Seattle Road Dogs Tour): The brewery is located off I-5 on Airport Way. There is a small lot in front of the building.

The interior opens to a tasting room with a merchandise store in the front and a standing bar beyond that. Taps of available beers behind the bar as well as a growler filling machine. Beyond the bar is a doorway that leads to the production facility.

Georgetown features 5 of their beers including the Pils, Choppers Red, Belgian Blonde, Porter (which recently changed names, more on that to follow) and SuperChopp seasonal. All of the beers are above average.

Service for my one-person tour group was good on a slow weekday. The guys behind the bar were friendly and explained all the beers, and had a steady small stream of customers coming in for growler fills. They also told me the amusing story of why they had to change the name of their 9lb Porter. Looking at the logo makes more sense now, and itís another reason to dislike Magic Hat.

Overall this is a worthwhile brewery to visit in Seattle.

Brewery with tasting room. Very simple, without frills. This brewer is keg/tap only, but apparently they do just fine without bottles. Everything I tried on tap was incredibly fresh and very well done. The staff was friendly and ready with plenty of stories about each and every beer. I visited as part of a local brewery tour. While the tour only included 5 tastings, the staff let us try everything (7) on tap. I was very impressed.

Great place to hit up after Full Throttle and fill your growler. Hopefully theyíll open up a taproom someday like Fremont.

Came in after going to Full Throttle, I just couldnít help getting a few samples. The ones I had were really good. They had 6 on at the time. The people in there were nice and you canít beat the growler price.

This is a decent place. The inside is very neat and modern. The people behind the counter are extremely nice. Tasters are FREE, so go here and try as much as you can, again, for free. The growler fills are cheap -- I believe they were $6 for the regular line-up, and $8 for their ultra-special stuff. In other words, this place is frigginí cheap. They do have a "gift shop", as well. This place is nothing to wet your pants over, considering one might have to make a special trip JUST to swap out a growler, but with free tasters and cheap fills, who cares if you have to go a little out of the way. Overall, kick ass place.

This is great for what it is. Simply put, a brewery that happens to also sell beer and a few items of miscellaneous value to the public. You wonít find a oak-covered tasting room, there wonít be a bling cup or happy hour slop. They will however fill your clean growler for cheap, sell you a filled growler for cheap, and give you a taste of whatever experiment they have brewing today. Canít find it? Just drive down the alley heading east between the brick buildings thereíll be this big parking lot, the brewery loading dock is on the back of one of the buildings.. No sign, no arrows.
