Best Brewery: Georgetown Brewing

The people have spoken.

If you’ve ever walked into a bar in Seattle, you’ve likely come across a product from Georgetown, founded in 2003. Manny’s pale ale is probably the most popular locally produced microbrew in the city—and it’s certainly the entry-level microbrew for anyone not yet initiated. Georgetown also has one of the most popular IPAs in the city, the floral, smooth Lucille. And our personal Georgetown favorite? The Chopper’s red ale: a hoppy red without the normal red-ale syrupy quality. Georgetown also offers regular delicious seasonals like their India Pale Lager and Bob’s Brown.

First runner-up: Fremont Brewing

Second runner-up: Elysian Brewing

Honorable mention: Reuben’s Brews, Two Beer Brewing Co.
