Beer Advocate Class of 2016

We were honored to be part of the class of 2016 when a whopping 861 breweries joined the ranks of America’s booming beer industry,.

Beacon Hill Finally got a brewery to call its own in 2016 ...and the community immediately embraced the venue as their own. You’ll usually find 11 house-brewed beers on tap to accompany the food, which is every bit as impressive as Les McAuliffe’s beer.

Perihelion Brewery is the hot new pub on Beacon Hill. It opened in February at the elbow of South McClellan Street and Beacon Avenue South, a relief for co-owner and brewer Les McAuliffe, who recalled many sweaty nights during the build-out. No one else had a brewery on Beacon Hill. Maybe everyone knew something he didn’t, he thought. {Tan Vihn}



Seattle eater Great spots for outdoor eating and drinking

Beacon Hill's first brewery is pretty short on indoor space, but it does have a killer patio complete with a fire pit. ... Perihelion seems made for sun-worshiping; the name, after all, means " the closest point to sun of an object's orbit."

We were especially excited to find out Perihelion has food. FOOD! And we gotta admit, we were ready to grub with a menu that included Caribbean sandwiches, stout adobo wings, fried brussels sprouts and a blue cheese-truffle burger (check out their website for more food options!)
