Registration is now open for this free hike series which combines exploration of local hiking areas, education about native plants, and insights into the minds of local craft brewers.

In its seventh year, Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) returns to Seattle with a series of hikes meant to unite local brewers and beer fans on the trail! Led by volunteer naturalists and Washington Wild staff, the 11 participating brewers will find inspiration from native plants along the trail for their next craft beer. The resulting trail-inspired beers will be shared at a special tapping event in October at Naked City Brewery & Taphouse. At this ticketed event, participants can sample all 11 trail-inspired beers with proceeds donated to Washington Wild, a local nonprofit working to protect watersheds.

The participating breweries are Partners of Washington Wild’s Brewshed® Alliance, which currently partners with over 50 Washington breweries and brew pubs. This outreach program helps people make a simple connection: healthy watersheds provide clean water, and clean water makes better beer.


Each hike is 3-6 miles in length, free, and open to the public.  RSVPs are required using links below. Washington Wild looks forward to bringing people together on the trail to create new experiences, new friendships, and great beer.
