The Schooner Exact was the ship that carried the Denny party -- the first European settlers in the area -- to Seattle in 1851. The brewery also has a history line of beers, including "3 Grid IPA" honoring the conflicting grid systems of the city, and "Regrade Pale." Marcus Connery and Matt & Heather McClung started the brewery in 2006, and opened the Tap Room after moving to their current SoDo location in 2010.
The tap room is particularly pleasant in the summer, with the garage doors open and the small patio in use. Schooner Exact also brews the Brave Horse Tavern beers for Tom Douglas.
