Pivotal experiences are not easy to come by and at Fair Isle, the goal is to provide you with a connection to beer like you’ve never experienced. We are a brewery in the Ballard Neighborhood of Seattle creating farmhouse beers rooted in the Pacific Northwest.
Fair Isle produces farmhouse and wild beers such as tart Saisons and American Wild Ales. Farmhouse beer originated before the industrial revolution when beer was not yet produced with laboratory isolated and tightly controlled commercial yeasts, as is common today. Instead, beer was naturally fermented with wild yeasts and bacteria. Because the yeast cultures were locally and naturally occuring, the beers were unique to each specific brewery’s location, creating flavors representing a specific place and time.
This is the Emerald City - things grow here, lots of wonderfully delicious things. There's Washington barley just north of us and the majority of US hops are grown three hours east of us. These two local ingredients are widely used, but there's more that grows here. We are excited about using everything from fresh peaches to foraging for ingredients in the Cascades. We use local and seasonal ingredients to return to the provincial nature of brewing and create community with those who make our beer possible.
The tasting room is open as well as to-go beer and online ordering! Fair Isle Brewing is a 21+ environment. No pets in the tasting room, but service animals are welcome
