Seattle Beer

Slideshow: SoDo’s Nanobreweries

Take a tour of three tiny Seattle breweries south of the stadiums.

All right, here’s what I’m suggesting: Right this minute, by whatever means necessary, arrange it so that your Friday afternoon is cleared of responsibilities.

Because on Fridays, beginning at the magical hour of 3pm, (or “beer o’clock,” as we say here in Enablerland), all three of SoDo’s very small breweries are open and ready to pour you local beer straight from the source.

I’ve also heard tell of sports folk, ultimately bound for Safeco and Qwest, who work their way through the three nanos and then stop off for dinner and more beer at the Pyramid Alehouse.

Below you’ll find hours and other info for Two Beers, Schooner EXACT, and Epic; but the main event on this post is the slideshow from photographer Lucas Anderson. He’s provided a mouth-watering look into what to expect on your nano tour, including the summer seasonals currently on tap. Enjoy.
