Peddler Brewing Company is a microbrewery and tasting room in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA. At Peddler, we strive to be a gathering place for beer lovers and support bicycling as an awesome way to get around our beautiful city.
We pride ourselves in keeping a wide variety of beers available on our 12 taps, and we always have a nitro beer and a guest cider. Look for our regulars on tap including Pedal Strike Pale, On Your Left IPA, and Tangerine Hefeweizen, and a variety of other styles that including stouts, Belgians, Imperial IPAs, Saisons, Seasonals, and Aged Sours.
Our indoor tasting room has a large bar and tables for guests to sit back and enjoy a taster tray or a pint while checking out the wall of broken bikes, beautiful globe lights, and bike chains in the concrete countertop. We also have a huge beer garden with a large tent and picnic tables where we host a wide variety of events all year-round – see our calendar for what’s happening this month. We also fill and sell 64oz growlers and 32oz growlettes to take beer home.
Owners Haley and Dave Keller combined their love of riding bikes, brewing and drinking beer, and desire to own a business when they opened Peddler in March of 2013. They spend their time making and selling beer, advocating for cycling, and riding bikes, so in a word, they’re Peddlers. Peddler Brewing Company started with a 7-barrel brewhouse and upgraded in June 2014 to a 15-barrel brewing system with six fermenters. Dave’s younger brother Mike Keller joined the team in July of 2014 to sell and distribute kegs and bottles to local bars, restaurants, and stores. Peddler Brewing Company’s environment is unique to the Ballard area provide each visit an experiential one. At Peddler, we pride ourselves in providing genuinely friendly customer service, helping support and build our local community, and creating an environment that feels like a natural extension of your own living room or back yard.
A lifelong cycling enthusiast, Dave began his brewing career in college, homebrewing batches for house parties. Immediately after graduating with an Engineering degree from Ohio State he relocated to Seattle. Drawn to the area by the immense natural beauty and recreational opportunities he had found a new home. After 5 years of cubicle life, he was ready for new adventures. In 2012 he and Haley set out to start a brewery and Peddler was born.
Haley’s love of both bicycling and beer are owed to Dave, starting back in 2008 when they went on their first date. A local Washingtonian, Haley graduated from Seattle University with a BS in Mathematics and Master’s in Teaching. While Haley loved teaching, the desire to start her own business drove her to start Peddler. When she isn’t running Peddler’s front-of-house operations and finance, she advocates for a more bike-friendly Seattle and is on the board of directors at Cascade Bicycle Club and Washington Bikes.
Dave’s younger brother, Mike, studied Supply Chain Management at Arizona State and moved to Seattle to work in the transportation industry. After about a year in Seattle, Dave and Haley needed an extra hand at Peddler so Mike joined the team in 2014. He initially worked in the tasting room and later that year started and now runs their wholesale distribution by selling and delivering beer to bars, restaurants, and stores around town. Since Mike’s move to Seattle, he has become obsessed with all aspects of beer and cycling. Keep an eye out for Mike biking his keg deliveries around town or racing in local bike races.
