Reuben’s Brews - Ballard, Seattle

Updated July 2, 2017

Family owned brewery with serious cred


Adam, head brewmaster at Reuben’s Brews, started as an avid home brewer and has turned his passion into a beloved beer business. If the brewery seems to have a wee bit of a British feel (Crikey IPA anyone?) it’s because Adam moved from the UK in 2004. When ordering from the bar you have a full gamut of bloody good beers to choose from.



Reuben's fans come in all shapes, sizes, and...attire. 


Onesie bar crawl y'all ☺️

Brews for Good

Reuben’s offers Bevvers the chance to drink for a cause. For instance, supporting the Puget Sound Goat Rescue while drinking beer and mingling with goats. If you’re not a baa’d person they may even let you adopt a baby goat.


You may also find certain beers that have been brewed with a cause in mind, such as the Ales for ALS hop blend:
