It’s that time of year for Dad’s special day, so grab your half-pints and head to one of Seattle’s many kid-friendly breweries for a Father’s Day celebration the whole family can enjoy.

 Stoup Brewing, in the heart of Ballard’s brewery district, offers a tucked-away corner full of games for the kiddos, with a large roll of butcher paper and markers for little artists. For food, there’s a snack machine full of healthy options, and rotating food trucks. Beer recommendation: Mosaic, a highly drinkable, hop-forward pale ale with notes of citrus and mango. 1108 NW 52nd St.; stoupbrewing.com

 Optimism Brewing Company on Capitol Hill has an enclosed play area packed with toys, and the enormous space even allows kids’ birthday parties. Hit up the on-site food truck or bring your own food. Or a nearby restaurant (like Sizzle Pie) can deliver to the beer hall. Dogs are welcome, too. Beer recommendation: Zest, a medium-bodied IPA with citrus and tropical fruit flavors. 1158 Broadway; optimismbrewing.com

 Peddler Brewing in Ballard offers a stellar beer garden where parents can sit and enjoy a brew whilst the kids run around or enjoy a game of cornhole. Grab some lunch to go from the excellent Mean Sandwich next door, or enjoy food trucks in the evenings and on weekends. Beer recommendation: Beach Cruiser Blonde, a light-bodied, easy drinking blonde ale. 1514 NW Leary Way; peddlerbrewing.com

 Fremont Brewing, found in the self-proclaimed center of the universe, offers a large indoor area for chillier days, and a patio that’s perfect for a sunny picnic. If you’re ordering delivery from one of Fremont’s tasty eateries, free pretzels and apples will keep everyone happy until dinner arrives. Beer recommendation: Fremont Summer Ale, a pale ale with big flavors and notes of tangerine; a Seattle classic. 1050 N 34th St.; fremontbrewing.com
