Seattle Happy Hour: Rachel's Ginger Beer

What: Rachel's Ginger Beer
Where:1610 12th Ave, Seattle, WA
When: 4pm-6pm Daily
Honeys Heart: $6 Moscow Mules (in pint glasses!)

Not to brag, but Kel and I have been really good about going to happy hours recently. I mean, that is kind of our thing so it's probably not that boast-worthy... but we're still pretty jazzed about it.

We have like 10 Portland happy hours to tell you about, but before we do that, I'm going to fill you in on a great Seattle happy hour that, fingers-crossed, will soon become a Portland happy hour too.

Rachel's Ginger Beer got its start selling artisanal ginger beers at Seattle farmers markets before opening up brick and mortars in Pike Place and Capitol Hill. They offer a ton of different flavored ginger beers like blood orange, caramelized pineapple, and pink guava in bottles and for growler fills, plus cocktails on tap.

Their cocktails are already very reasonably priced at $8, especially considering they come in pint glasses, but during happy hour, Moscow Mules and Montana Mules (whiskey and ginger beer) are only $6 a piece. That is a seriously good deal.

Also, they're seriously good.

That's a Porch Swing (gin, aperol, and ginger beer) above, which was okay, but really, just stick with those Moscow Mules and you'll be happy you did.

Here's to hoping that RGB will keep that same happy hour offering at their new location on Hawthorne!
