This was the last place we visited during a great beer weekend in Seattle and Portland, and also the last place in terms of quality. The building is architecturally very interesting, being obvously an old firehouse. The beers were nothing to write home about, the food was so-so. And althoughmour server was very friendly, she just didnít have it all together. A very missable experience.

A themed bar based on firefighting, but it has now evolved into a local young pick up joint. DJ and loud music, although there is no dancing, with table and spaces filled to the maximum. The tap list is actually pretty good, but largely ignored and most people are apathetic to the craft beer. The brewery beer is pretty sub par. I would go for the other taps, but the atmosphere is a bit off putting.

Visited on Friday 7th November í14 around midight. Nice venue, seet in an old firestation with many period features. The place was about 70% and easily found a table in the main room where the bar stands. There was a live DJ playing crap dance mixes that no one was paying any attention to, miss ! A good selection of taps although mainly guests, think there were just over half a dozen house beers which we worked through they are were mediocre at best averageing 2.96 for my rates, the lowest of any brewpub beers on this visit. Tasters could be taken by the 6 at 4ozís. House beers were all pretty dull styles too, nothing dark and strong, nothing hoppy, all 4-6% slush. The guest taps were solid and kind of bailed this place out a little. Service at the bar was fine. Not the best venue we visited in Tacoma and certainly the poorest showing in terms of house beers.

Based a quick visit...the beer wasnít much to speak of, unfortunately. In an old fire hall, it looks great on the outside and has a pleasant, "casual dining" sort of feel on the inside. The staff tried to tell me that beer gone off was perfectly fine, so clearly they lack in the training department. They have other taps as well.

It was nice and quiet on the Thursday night that I visited, which made for a nice experience. I am told they can get very busy with frat boys on some nights, so Iím glad that didnít coincide with my visit. Nice taplist of about 20 beers when I visited, about half of which were house beers and the rest guest taps. You can order a pre-set flight of their house beers: $6.25 for 6 tasters, a ridiculously good deal. However, you canít do flights or order taster sizes of the other beers. Guest taps were very good, including some Trois Dames, Boneyard and Barley Brownís. Service was super friendly and even fairly knowledgeable. Bottle list was also excellent, which featured a nice array of sours and BA imperial stouts for very reasonable prices (not that much further marked up than store prices). Definitely worth a stop when in town.

This was a great place. I loved the old fire house and the look inside and out was just what we all look for. The beers where good not perfect but hell the atmosphere made up for that. The service was good and the food was also very nice. Kids are Ok and the 10 regularís taps and 10 guest taps where awesome. They also have some out of country brews by bottle. A must see and have some food sing songs and have a great time. Cheer and have some beer they are getting better in this department also.

This place is a conundrum. Reclamation of historic buildings rocks, and this place is one of the better ones. You can still see the arches that fronted the horsesí stalls theyíre still part of the architecture. Itís got a nice, diverse, friendly, lively crowd, like any college bar should. Good service. Plenty of other good beers on draft, and the food is solid. But the brewing effort here is woeful. Still, the night we went, they had The Dissident and plenty of other gems pouring. Iíll be back without a doubt.

A good range of beers, most of which are drinkable, but average. A couple of good beers. Not great service. The food ranges from average to good. Quite a charming style
