About Redhook Brewery

Redhook 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 Woodinville, Wash., and Portsmouth, N.H., Redhook has become one of America’s most recognized craft breweries. Redhook recently opened Brewlab, a 10-barrel brewpub in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle early in 2017.

Redhook beers are available on draught and in bottles and cans around the Pacific Northwest. For more information, visit
