Great Notion Brewing review image

Great Notion Brewing


Great Notion is originally from Portland with outposts in Georgetown and Ballard. Their brews are typically inspired by other foods and drinks, like their aguas frescas sour with hibiscus, strawberry, and watermelon, or their creamsicle IPA with orange puree, vanilla, and milk sugar. The indoor/outdoor space makes it a fun hangout spot in the summer, and there’s a Burbs Burgers onsite if you’re hungry.
