About Redhook Brewery
was born out of the entrepreneurial spirit of early 1980s in the heart
of Seattle. While the term didn’t exist at the time, Redhook became one
of America’s first craft breweries with its focus on creating a better
beer. From a modest start in a former transmission shop in the Seattle
neighborhood of Ballard, to a Fremont trolley barn that housed The
Trolleyman brewpub, to its current breweries in Seattle, Wash., and
Portsmouth, N.H., Redhook has become one of America’s most recognized
craft breweries. Redhook opened a 10-barrel brewpub in the Capitol Hill
neighborhood of Seattle in 2017.

seasonal beers, including My Oh My Caramel Macchiato Milk Stout,
Tangelic Halo Tangerine IPA, Winterhook, and more. Redhook beers are
available on draught and in bottles and cans around the country.
