Let us serve you a beer

We are a brewery and taproom in the Ballard Neighborhood of Seattle creating farmhouse beers rooted in the place we live. We have 18 taps pouring our farmhouse ales, guest beer, wine, cider, and bottles available for onsite enjoyment and to-go. Enjoy one of our many seats in our covered and heated beergarden, our open-air Orchid Room or in our main taproom. The Ballard neighborhood has become a destination in the US for beer drinkers. We are proud to be one of twelve breweries all within walking distance.

We are a 21+ Taproom

Guest Beer, Wine & cider

We offer a curated list of rotating guest beer, wine, cider, and non-alcoholic beverage to enjoy in our tasting room or purchase to-go. Our guest offerings include those that shape our trajectory, compliment the beer we make, challenge us, or frankly, just something we are excited to share with you.

Food

We don't have a daily food menu, but guests are welcome to bring outside food to Fair Isle and we often host food pop-ups. At Fair Isle, we love good food and central to what we do is collaboration. Part of our operations includes a modest commissary kitchen that we make available to host guest chefs for food pairings and pop-up dinners - a modern interpretation of a supper club.

Exploration is part and parcel to who we are. From cultivating wild yeast to experimenting with new ingredients and processes, join us every week as we meander from our normal batch size and create beers that inspire us, one keg at a time.
