No other brewery in Washington comes close to rivaling the scope of Redhook's 260,000-bbl annual production. Their Woodinville operation boasts the state's largest brew kettle (100-bbl - so large, it has a mechanical winch to lower the poor soul who must enter and clean it) and their fermentation room would appear to cover several acres. It's like a tank battalion.

Redhook's Woodinville digs adjoin two wineries beside the Sammamish River and resembles a manicured estate moreso than an industrial plant. Daily tours allow visitors to explore the facility, collect a complimentary sampling glass, and dip into Redhook's catalog of ales. The one dollar cost is more of a tip than an admission fee, but be sure to tip your tour guide afterwards as well.

Adjoining the brewery is The Forecaster's Pub. The pub features a spacious seating area (often crowded), outdoors dining, and free live music on weekends. Food is routine barfare but generous and tasty. Just be sure to save some room for the Porter Ice Cream Sundae. The bar serves four regular Redhook ales, three seasonals, a cask, and several specials, including newer beers not yet available in bottles. The gift shop is easily the most accommodating of its kind in the state, offering Redhook playing cards, sweat bands, golf towels, and BBQ aprons among the more routine staples of T-shirts and drinking glasses. Bottled beer is available to go, often at discount prices.

Redhook beers range from clean, approachable standards to minimalist introductory beers suited to mass-market sensibilities. They are distributed to every American state except Utah and Oklahoma. When offered at supermarket prices, best values may be had in the form of the sharp, workable Long Hammer IPA or the agreeably modest Copperhook Spring Ale.

Came here for a brewery tour. It was $5 and was set up very well. The group is keep in a tap room while the guide pours samples and give history of the brewery. Then the process of brewing beer.

There is no walking just a model of the equipment is on display and a balcony that shows the fermentation room which is nice.

6 samples and a complementary pint glass for $5 is well worth it. The food is great too

Growing up around and even in the Woodinville WA area, it has been nice to have such a reputable establishment like the Redhook Ale Brewery at our disposal. . . That being said, they were better when I was a younger chap just getting into the "ale game". . . One could almost consider them a "gateway" into the culture. . .

Their beer is not nearly as power-punch packing as I once considered it. Even their highly esteemed Longhammer IPA (my long time best friend) doesn't hold up to some of the others of its class that I have better enjoyed in recent years. Outside of their commercialized let down in beer quality though, they have still stayed true in being a very nice ale house to frequent. Their food is always on par, I really appreciate their recent remodel that just took place, the overall vibe is just, and they deserve to still be considered a top dog in the Washington region when it comes to wearing their beer badge of pride.

Oh, and we have to pay them their due for having the balls to put on the summer cinema series every year where hoards of barely drink-legal 20 somethings pack the out door lot to indulge while watching classic party films on a big screen. . . It is way too jam packed, under facilitated at times, and you can't really enjoy the films as much, but props are still needing to be paid to Redhook for continually putting on the party.
