These Seattle breweries make great places to stop between local attractions and activities.

Optimism Brewing Company

1158 Broadway | optimismbrewing.com

After a day of exploring on Capitol Hill and playing in Cal Anderson Park, take a break at this family-friendly venue. The colorful, contained toy area for little ones and the packed schedule of food trucks parked on-site keep everyone happy.

Fremont Brewing Urban Beer Garden

1050 N 34th St | fremontbrewing.com

Take a load off at this all-ages beer garden, a perfect way to pause or end a day of flying kites at Gas Works Park, climbing the Fremont Troll, and touring the Center of the Universe—Fremont itself, so they say.

Jellyfish Brewing Company

917 S Nebraska St | jellyfishbrewing.com

After checking out the Hat ‘n‘ Boots sculpture at Oxbow Park, try some of the quirky beers here, like magenta-hued Sour Suzie 23. This spacious, vaguely aquarium-themed spot also carries carbonated lemonade for kids and nondrinkers.

Pike Brewing

415 First Ave | pikebrewing.com

After getting up close with the fish at Seattle Aquarium, take a break at one of the city’s oldest craft breweries. Kids will enjoy meals from the children’s menu, and all ages can explore the curiosities at the microbrewery museum.
