Vote for your Favorite Ballard Brew!

Ray’s is thrilled to bring you the first Ballard Beer Awards voted by the people! In 1982 Paul Shipman started Redhook Brewery in a fire hall in Ballard. Later that year Ray’s Executive Chef Russ Wohlers, and Paul carried the first keg of Redhook into Ray’s and we’ve been a champion of Ballard beer ever since!

From January 14-February 14 we’ll be featuring 5 Ballard-based breweries for you to taste and vote for! Come in and purchase a pint of beer from one of the breweries below and that counts as your vote. Or fill out a ballot if you choose not to imbibe.

Want to try them all at once? Ray’s will offer a special Ballard Beer Flight throughout the month with a sample from each of the five breweries for $5. Then purchase a pint of your favorite to cast your vote, or fill out a ballot!

On February 15 we’ll announce the winner and they’ll host a special Winning Brewery Dinner at Ray’s on Saturday, March 5 for you to attend!

Each brewery will stop in to Ray’s Cafe for a special tasting night during the month. Join us on the following dates to meet their team and vote for your favorite. You can also vote for them any day from January 14-February 14!
