Bikes and Brews: 8 Kid- and Bike-Friendly Breweries in Greater Seattle

Peddler Brewing CoAhhh…Family Bicycle Day! The fresh air, camaraderie, sense of adventure and … beer? Why not? Seattle is full of family-friendly breweries, and many of them are bike-accessible. What better way to end an afternoon of bicycling than with lemonade for the kids and a frosty pint for mom and dad?

Here are eight kid-and-bike-friendly breweries worth checking out. Note: five of these breweries are located in the Ballard/Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, in close proximity to the Burke-Gilman Trail. Since these particular spots of the trail are usually congested with experienced cyclists, be sure your kiddos are old enough (and skilled enough) to bike in that situation. (For those with itty-bitty bikers, check out our list of best bike paths for younger kids.)

Tip: Many of the breweries noted are a perfect pit stop for a pint, but be sure to pack water or snacks, as many don’t have kitchens. But if you’re stopping at Hale’s Ales, Redhook Brewery or Snoqualmie Brewery, take off your helmets and stay a while; all offer full menus.
