Bar serves Bigtime brews exclusively (which is fine by me because theyíre tasty). Food is okay. Pretty low-key. I like it best during non-peak times. Great Sunday night special: buy a large pizza, get a pitcher for a buck. Good place to meet friends and play a few board games when it isnít too busy.

Very cool old school place in the University district, with about 12 beers on tap during my visit. You can do 4 x 4oz. beer samplers for just over $5. Beer quality is consistent and solid, with nothing crazy. Service is friendly enough and the atmosphere is very inviting. Definitely worth a stop when nearby.

You walk in to chunky furniture that is purely meant to survive students day in and out. The college vibe is here, but not overtly so. Service was nice and everything was serve yourself. Beer selection was pretty good, but all were pretty standard, nothing standing out. Food is casual and decent, but nothing I would specifically go for. A nice place overall if you are in the neighborhood, but nothing I would go out of my way for.

A Seattle/U-Dist institution. The place has had several great local brewers past through it. Lots of house recipes that rotate through with some standard handles. Place is well worn in with lots of character and a cross section of customers. Service is solid, prices are good and the food will work if you are hungry but not something I would go there for. Definitely worth checking out if in the area.

An old brew pub, 25 years at least, on the university main drag. A decent selection of house brews at bargain basement prices. Friendly staff. Decent bar food. I would be stoked to have a place like this down the street from my pad.

Very close to the university and totally packed with students during our visit and thatís probably typical. Still, no regrets at all we made a detour to hit Big Time. We did not eat, but the pizza counter was really looking at us by the time we left. Woodish interior with a loud crowd and plenty of good IPA being drank all around. Having Bhagwan and Scarlett Fire on tap at the same time was a definite highlight of our West Coast trip. Lovely old school IPAs which remain as good as their posterity. Beers were generally fresh and very satisfying. Thatís the point of a RB place, isnít it, the rest is all details.

I hiked across town from the Hard Liver fest to get here. Actually it was on the way to my friendís place, who was in school at the University of Washington, and we were trying to work off some of the barleywine. The people were very friendly and the brewer recognized me from the festival. I had talked with him a bit not knowing he was a brewer at all. We tried all 10 beers, of which most were pretty decent. They usually have some vintage bottles of their wheatwine sitting around. Theyíve been making this beer forever so if you find someone with a cellar you might be able to track one down from the early 2000ís. The sandwiches are pretty good as well. Cool place all around.

Definitely geared toward students. Standards here are pretty low. Parking is a bit challenging.

Nice presence on University ave. Great old building with plenty of antique charm and modern touches. Brewing area open to view from the restaurant seating which adds great ambiance. Nice selection of sandwiches and pizzas. They have their beer on tap, most of which is very good to excellent. The only real knock against them is that I never experience very friendly staff here.

Rerate Revisited in Aug í12 for lunch after touring UDUB with my son. Fun brewpub with solid brews and great lunches. Original Visited here on a Friday night while on vacation in Seattle and the place was packed. It is located near the UDUB (University of Washington) campus - may actually be on campus. Sat at the bar and several students came in with collapsible growlers to fill with take home brew - most chose one of their IPAs which there were several. The service was very prompt and attentive and the beer was of the highest quality. Wish I would have had a place like this when I went to school.
