We had a blast this weekend in Seattle running in the Furry 5K (a dog friendly race at Seward Park) and visiting a nearby brewery, Machine House Brewing.
First the race. I am NOT a good runner, but it was so fun. We were able to run it with both of our dogs and our son. It was great to see all the pooch lovers of Seattle out, and even more fun to get to see all the great vendors that were there. If you have a dog (or just like dogs) this is a great event that I would recommend doing next year. You can find out more info at http://www.furry5k.com.
Now back to why we are here…beer. We used Yelp and searched for breweries near us and the only one open was Machine House Brewery in Georgetown, and I’m really glad they were. If you have kids this place is a gem!
First, they have a play area with a train set, books, and play table. We had a somewhat tired half pint with us and this perked him right up! They have a big tasting room which is nice because you don’t feel like your kid is bugging other people.
They don’t really have any food or drinks there for kids (they do sell chips), but you can bring in your own snacks (for you and your half pint) and drinks for the kiddo. We have found this to be a good idea anyway recently with the boom in breweries that are just that, breweries, and not pubs with food.
Since it WAS Furry 5K day also I better mention that you can also bring well behaved pooches in! Ours were solidly passed out in the truck after the run…otherwise we would have had them in tow.
If you are down on Airport Way this is a must. The beer was also really good (and different!). They have three English style beers Mild, Gold and Bitter. They also had an IPA on tap. Great easy drinking beers for a hot Seattle summer day!
