Sadly, Washington state liquor laws won’t let you take your bambinos into a bar. But gloriously, it is both socially acceptable and totally legal to take your crew of all ages into a brewery. If you love craft beer and you live in Seattle, grab a pint with your pint-sized people at one of these local brewhouses, who not only welcome but also actually cater to kids.
Every weekend, couples, co-workers and kiddos gather at Fremont Brewing’s indoor urban beer garden. The vibe feels similar to an oversized family reunion–only with much better beer. Chances are good are you’ll find several leashed dogs happily resting under the 18-foot long benched table that fills the center of the tasting room. Chances are even better that your little ones will wind up running in circles around the communal table or taking turns riding an old dime store horse resting in a corner. The staff working the bar are too busy filling growlers and pints to fuss with food (save for an oversized bowl of pretzels that are free for the taking.) Come prepared with a packed dinner, snacks or carry-out from a nearby restaurant like RoRo’s BBQ & Grill or Pagliacci Pizza.
