If you aren’t a MOHAI member (You should be) you might not be aware that they offer some pretty interesting neighborhood history tours. Just this week, I took my wife on their tour of Seattle’s fashion history (yes, there is some) in the downtown shopping district, and this weekend I’ll be going with a friend on their boat tour that covers Lake Union’s houseboat communities.

Maybe you don’t care about that type of history. But, what about Seattle’s brewing history? They have two upcoming “Georgetown Brews” tours on July 27 and August 17 that are geared towards beer lovers. These 2 hour walking tours will talk about how breweries helped shape the neighborhood past and present and will also include a beer tasting (so, 21+ only). Get tickets now, as they expect these two to sell out quickly.

You can get tickets for July 27 here and August 17 here. Visit their events page to look at the rest of their tours. Also, as I said, you should be a MOHAI member. The new museum itself is worth the membership, not to mention you get a discount on these tours and more.

More info from MOHAI on the Georgetown Brews Tour:

Take an afternoon to experience the tastes, secrets, and stories of Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood through its past and present breweries. Led by MOHAI’s Kimberly Jacobsen, you’ll learn about how local businesses – big and small – have impacted the culture and commerce of this unique spot. From the skeletal remains of brewing giant, Rainier Brewing Company, to comic book shops and taverns, this tour promises you an unexpected look at Seattle’s hardest working neighborhood through the last 100 years. This tour includes tastings of local beers.

Date & Time:
Saturdays July 27 and August 17, 2 – 4 PM
Meet at: North end of the parking lot of Ruby Chow Park, located at S. Albro Place and Stanley Ave. S
Cost: MOHAI Members $15; General $20
Note: Must be 21+ to attend.
