We opened Reuben’s Brews in 2012, after Adam’s award-winning homebrewing career, naming the brewery after our first child, Reuben. At our family brewery we brew from the glass backwards: designing each beer with intention, unbound by constraints. We know making that extra effort is worth it. From your everyday favorites beers to our innovative new releases, we help you grow your love of beer.

– Adam and Grace Robbings

The Pilot
Brewery

In August 2012 we opened our original brewery and tasting room in Ballard. We closed this space to the public in 2015 when our Taproom opened, but we still brew pilot batches here every week on our 5bbl system.

The
Taproom

Our Taproom, which opened in 2015, features a brewery right in the middle of the tasting room, where we brew batches of beer that you’ll taste in both here, at The Brewtap, and in distribution. Our system here is 15bbl.

The Production Brewery

This is where we brew the majority of the beers you see in cans and bottles on our 30bbl brewhouse, freeing up our other facilities to help us brew the breadth of beers we are known for. Also home to The Brewtap, our second tasting room

Co-founder and brewmaster

Since moving from the UK in 2004, Adam was blown away by the diversity and quality of the brews in the Pacific Northwest. As a home brewer, Adam and Grace poured their beer at the 2010 PNA Winter Beer Taste and won First Place in the People's Choice. Then the brewing bug took over and Adam continued to hone his craft and he won several more awards, including a Silver Medal at the 2012 National Homebrew Competition, and attended UC Davis. This all led to the desire to share his brews with more people and the opening of Reuben's Brews in August 2012.

Co-founder and Reuben’s Mama

When Grace tried Adam's first home brewed beer a number of years ago, she didn't expect a great brew - after all, it was his first attempt. But she was surprised just how good it was and ever since then has been the number one supporter of Adam's brewing. You'll often see her pouring at festivals, and she does a lot of the behind the scenes managing the accounting and legal work for the brewery.

Brewer

Grace and Adam's brother-in-law — fell in love with Adam's beer in 2010 when he tried a sample batch of what was to become "Pfeiffer's Pumpkin Rye." Despite not even liking pumpkin, Mike loved the brew — and knowing that Grace and Adam were thinking about opening a brewery he wanted to be part of it. So he joined the team in February 2012 to help build the brewery, before taking over as brewer, and moved with his family from Illinois. Adam and Mike brewed the first 50 batches together; since then, Mike has owned the brewhouse.
