Hellbent Brewing


Hellbent Brewing Company is situated in the Lake City neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. It’s recognized for its expansive and diverse beer selection, typically featuring a mix of styles from hop-heavy IPAs to robust stouts and refreshing lagers, catering to a broad spectrum of beer enthusiasts. It's a 21+ taproom that is extremely dog friendly. In fact there was a dog off leash running around upstairs. That's a bit much but hey. 

Outside at Hellbent Brewing
Pretty chilly evening, but we're still outside!

Hellbent's award-winning brews are a testament to their commitment to the craft. Their Seattle Sunshine, a hazy pale ale, boasts of bready malts and a symphony of hops, earning it the Platinum "Best in the Northwest" title by SIP Magazine in 2020. The Dang! Citra IPA, with its citrusy tropical hop aroma, and the Red Patina Amber Ale, a medium-bodied ale with hints of caramel and toffee, have both clinched accolades at the Washington Beer Awards. And for those who love a classic, the Northwest Pilsner is a nod to the traditional, with a slight twist of Northwest hops.

I had 100% Fresh Hop IPA, Dog Parade Starts Here! Hazy IPA, and Juicier and Juicier Hazy IPA. My GF had several in a flight and a Mossback Monk Belgian Tripel. Overall a pretty good trip! I definitely had more than I should have considering we had some hikes planned for the weekend!

The brewery has made a name for itself not just through its beer but also through its welcoming and relaxed environment. It's a popular spot for both locals and visitors seeking a casual and friendly place to enjoy high-quality craft beers. The interior usually offers ample seating with an upstairs and downstairs area. 

 Upstairs has more seating.... and pinball! There is also a fairly large outdoor area with picnic tables on gravel and another area with synthetic grass. The d├ęcor often reflects a warm, homey, semi industrial aesthetic, making it an inviting space for socializing and relaxation. There are TVs throughout the taproom in case you wanted to watch the Mariners lose their chance at the World Series. (too soon?).

Chicken Puffy Tacos??? WHY NOT?!

In addition to their brews, Hellbent is known for hosting a rotating lineup of food trucks, offering patrons a variety of culinary options to pair with their beers. These might range from local favorites serving up gourmet burgers and fries to exotic cuisines offering unique and flavorful dishes. Mexicuban Food Truck was there during our visit. Fluffy Tacos? Yeah they have them, and they were pretty good too!
