Lucky Envelope BrewingWe will start out at Ballard's newest, and smallest micro-brewery. True to the Northwest brewing aesthetic there is nothing fancy here.

There are usually a dozen beers on tap and we are going to try four that will surpise and amaze you. Populuxe BrewingNext stop is the popular Populuxe Brewing. A cute little blue house with a large outdoor courtyard and a recent addition that includes pinball machines!. These folks brew from the heart and we are going to try some sensational brews. I can hardly wait. Bad Jimmy's BrewingJimmy may be bad but his beers are great. And Jimmy's brewers tell me that they are brewing up something special just for you. They are known for their intense ales so you will be in for a treat. There will be some familiar styles and something you never expected to find. We'll try three and let you decide.
