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 don’t 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. Georgetown’s growler system is THE BEST I’ve encountered. The growlers are filled by a machine, so the beer stays carbonated and fresh for over a week if you don’t open it. Once you’ve 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 it’s 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 they’ll open up a taproom someday like Fremont.

Came in after going to Full Throttle, I just couldn’t 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 can’t 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 friggin’ 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 won’t find a oak-covered tasting room, there won’t 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. Can’t find it? Just drive down the alley heading east between the brick buildings there’ll be this big parking lot, the brewery loading dock is on the back of one of the buildings.. No sign, no arrows.

Once you find it, there is a small entrance from the loading dock; mainly a growler fill kind of place, but also some glass and wearables; Georgetown is a no-frills brewery; solid brews and super cheap growler fills

Stopped in at this place when I was in Seattle to watch THE BUCKEYES play Washington. Back to the beer. It was Great I got a little tour talked to the boss and tasted the stuff they had on. Very nice group of people. After the beer samples they let me keep the pint glass. Sweet. It was pretty cool to see all of the to go growles in the cooler. I will stop in again for sure.

Was not sure what to expect when I arrived to Georgetown. First and foremost the place was not easy to find. Besides GPS better take a good map that you have printed out so you can find it. Maybe the dark rainy weather also made the sign hard to see. I came around the back alley and wham there it was and wow it was great. You walk into a back room and wow it was beervana. Ok the word has been used before and will be used many more times but it was purely awesome. This tasting/bottling/growler room was filled with the Georgetown trinkets and many many growlers waiting or had been filled with the sweet 9lb porter or, Mannys, Super Chop, I wish they had Bob ready to go. But in time I will just have to wait for. The sampling room was simple and right in the heart of the operations. They had a terrific guy up front and he helped and poured samples. He was so busy also filling and selling growlers no wonder Georgetown dose not bottle they sell like hotcakes out the back door. From what I heard they have
