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!

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!
