The state of Washington has the second most breweries of any state (currently around 130). Seattle, its largest city, is the most influential in regards to beer production and consumption. Seattle has been passionate about their beer for decades and the state’s craft beer explosion has only bolstered Seattle’s place on this list. There are more than two dozen breweries and brew pubs in the metro area, and countless home brewers just waiting to throw their latest batch into the ring.
They have a local beer week, numerous ale houses, and retailers where you can find obscure brews from all over the world, never having to drink the same thing twice. To bolster their local pride, most of Seattle’s bars and restaurants include local choices on their menu, continuing to strengthen the Seattle beer scene.
