Walking tours of Seattle's brewing history

We recently reported that Emerald City Brewing would be opening soon in the old Rainier Brewery. That attracted everyone’s attention, to say the least. Not surprising when you consider Seattle’s proud brewing history. Today we report that the Museum of History and Industry has organized two tours that are of interest to beer enthusiasts and historian alike. The walking tours explore two of our city’s favorite pastimes: coffee and beer.

Saturday, July 3, 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Walking Tour: Fremont Brews
Fremont historian Helen Divjak takes you on a behind-the-scenes look at some of Fremont ’s best known breweries and the rich history behind them. Stops include the former Redhook Brewery (now Theo Chocolates), the emerging Fremont Brewing facility, and much more! Tastings are included in the ticket price, but attendees are encouraged to bring cash for an extra happy hour pint! Must be 21 with valid ID to attend.
