Alejandro’s got it goin’ on for sure. As of Nov 08, he’s still functioning at kind of a neighborhood level, bringing out new beers all the time and not pouring in every bar in town--yet. What he does pour is great, though, and the vibe at this place is awesome. he has about 8-10 beers in steady production, and a very cool staff. The place looks SO much nicer now than it did as PRB. Brighter, cleaner, friendlier, more welcoming, happier. Upstairs feels like a living room, downstairs feels like a basement bar at your house. Al will give you a tour and he’s a modest, approachable, cool guy. Dig it. Worth the trip over in combination with BPP and Elliott Bay for sure, if you’re an out of towner, and if you’re local, you need to hit this place eventually regardless.

Al and I talked for a few hours talking - beer, brewing and the beer business. It was awesome. Oh donít forget all during which I was also sampling some great beers. Started out with a great Belgium and finished with a thick one time only brew (Lil Al 80 Series Stout). This is a brew they are experimenting with and only do a one time only batch on the smaller barrel system they have set up. Now if the Lil Al brew goes over well that beer then will become a beer they will brew on the large system. So from the start the 5 main brews on tap where just awesome. Loved the Smoked Porter which is the newest of the beers they had just put out. Wow the smokiness was just perfect. So after trying all the beers it was time for the tour. Al took me all over the brewery showing me everything. This was a great time. Al really loves what h
