Washington State is home to over 900 vineyards, and over 200 breweries, meanwhile Seattle hosts some of the most creative mixologists in the world. There is simply no fear of a dry weekend. That said; it’s worth your while sampling some of the artisan coffee, even if it’s not a cure for the night before.
Woodyard Canyon vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley is maker of some of the most fantastic wines in the region. With a tasting room that is open daily and various events throughout the year, you would be mad not to go and experience the home of Seattle Times’ top wine of 2015.
Seattle is awash with breweries, so big is the craft beer scene here. It seems new openings come every month in the city, jostling for space amongst some of the most highly-regarded brewers on the West Coast. To avoid feeling overwhelmed, Road Dog Brewery Tours are the way to go to experience the very best.
You may not know it, but one of the world’s best bars is located in Seattle: Canon. With its dark wood furnishings, and old fashioned bar, there is a real sense of speakeasy around this place. The first Sazerac Experiment we tried was enough, but the second was bliss. This is a bar for the whisky connoisseur or the experimental tourist.
Cup o’ joe
Quite simply, for coffee in Seattle, you are spoilt for choice. The city consumes such vast amounts of the stuff and imports it from all over the world so you are never far from a cup when you need one. The Seattle Coffee Works is a great place to start, for tastings, purchases and long meandering chats.
