I went to college around the corner, and ended up spending probably a couple thousand dollars there learning about beer. My name is on the wall several times. I became a professional brewer with the help of their beer club and Doug Tiede, the Head Brewer there,.

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.

The house brews are all dull, weak & uninspired. Especially their E9 IPA. The food turned into a real bummer for me which overshadowed the entire experiance. Sandwhichs come with a mountain of fries, for $1 you can upgrade to onion rings. I figured, what the heck, spend the extra buck...they brought out my lunch with a total of 4 onion rings, What a rip off. Nice building & decor, the rest of the experiance blows! Their pale ale looks & tastes like bud:(

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.

My Favorite place for a pint! Friendly
staff & brewers. Although I donít like
karaoke nights. But they do have music
blues and jazz. My favorite brew would
have to be Tacoma Brew or the Roasted

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

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.

Great ambiance, any old firehouse is going to make a top notch brewery, Iím sure itís written in stone somewhere. Okay food, good service, fairly good selection of brewery beers as well as some guest taps - good ones too. Worth a visit.
