Squirrel! They’re everywhere. This a small, cute place that transforms from coffee shop in the morning to neighborhood bar in the evening. Small but interesting draft list. Nice vibe.

The bartender is the one pouring drafts and making espresso/sandwiches, so service can be understandably on a slow side. Said sandwiches are damn good, tap beer selection is okay - nothing fancy, though you will probably find something you like in a bottle. The ambiance is what really makes it a 5 star place.
Very small, neighborhood vibe, with lots of beer lovers instead of ’geeks’ on my visit. Food seemed mostly limited to grilled sandwiches, but the small bowl of bean salad with cilantro I had for a bite did the trick on my quick stop. Plenty of solid bottles to choose from, but their rotating taps seem to be the thing to watch. Staff was friendly and good-natured. Most of the locals were both pleasant and chatty. Cool little place that I will keep my eye on when heading into the city. Oh, the barstools break your ass.
This a new place form when I lived in town. I really like the location and the feel of the space. They had a great selection of beer, but for some reason I don’t remember them having 50-100 bottles to choose from. Never the less great place. I love Seattle for BEER!!

Very small, but a great draft selection, and growlers as well.
Dog friendly even inside.
Good ambiance, friendly staff
Totally solid little cozy neighborhood beer bar; a renovated garage maybe? Given that this is where I finally tracked down my first taste of Pliny the Younger and that even then it was a neighborhood scene rather than a zoo -- props to this place. Soccer on the tube, other good beers on tap, obviously a beer-lover’s bar without necessarily being a beer-geek destination. And frankly, if I lived in the neighborhood, that I’d what I’d want. Think Fiddlers with a bit less of the cozy. I like it.
I really like The Dray, great place to go after work before heading back to West Seattle. I wish there was a bit more food selection, even though the food they do toss together is excellent. Great beer selection with rotating taps, they usually have 2 or three ipa’s on taps so that makes me happy. And they are most likely to have a football ( the round ball type) or rugby on so there is always good entertainment.
