Welcome to Seattle Beer Guide. It is "A" beer guide rather than "The" beer guide because it in no way intended to be comprehensive. It is a "curated" site -- which just means these are the pubs that a couple of beer geeks- - Don and Fred -- happen to like. Don lives in Seattle and is the "boots on the ground." Fred lives in Los Angeles and does the technical stuff -- but he is a regular visitor to Seattle.

Who is this site for?

We've designed the site with the beer tourist in mind. Whether you're are in Seattle on a dedicated beer trip or you are in town for other reasons (business, family trip, etc.) and just want to try some good local beers. But we hope it will also be a useful resource for locals as well.

You can search the database many different ways.


Eventually we'll have some other stuff to read.

In the meatime...

In the meantime you can check out some of our "sister sites." If you like good German beer you should head to Bamberg and the surrounding area (known as Franconia) for some of the best beer around. And the Franconia Beer Guide is your key to a good beer time.

Or you can check out our Los Angeles Beer Guide, A London Beer Guide, A Dublin Beer Guide and An Antwerp Beer Guide -- they too are works in progress.
