A fun place where I always manage to have a good time. Great selection of their own brews and some unusual ones (including cask ales), average pub food, good service (though often very busy), pub quizzes, etc. Prices are good, not to be missed during a Tacoma pub crawl.

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.

What an awesome place to visit every time I happen to be in the area. The location is nice, and happens to be a half block away from the Red Hot, another favorite of mine. This place is a full restaurant, as well as a brewery with over 30 taps, split with guest taps and their own beers. They will occasionally have really fun events, as I found out yesterday, attending their packed house Sour Fest. Beers are good, food is good, staff is great. They also have a very nice small bottle collection to enjoy on site, which has impressed me every time. This is my kind of place. Love it every time.

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.

This is a unique pub and brewery based in a old fire engine house in the heart of Tacoma, WA. Ambiance is unique with original dťcor including a the taproom set in stalls from the days of horse drawn fire engines. This is a family friendly brewpub with excellent food that even my kids enjoyed. .

Ferris  (891) Burnaby, British Columbia | November 9, 2014
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.

Love the wide variety of beer selection they have here, except half the beer I asked for they were out of. Food is wonderful also. The waiter we had was also very helpful with answering any questions we had in the beginning. Then he dissappeared.

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.

Iím re-writing this review based on a recent change in management which has markedly improved the place and changed the whole ballgame at E9. First the not-so-good news: the menu is only slowly changing and itís still pretty much average pub food. The quality of what is served has got better however. Service is still only fair, but I expect this to improve as sub-standard servers move along. Prices are unchanged - so far. The good news is that the brewers are reinvigorated and are being allowed free reign to innovate and experiment. Sours, barrel-aged beers, collaborations with talented local homebrewers: itís all happening at the new E9. Beer lines have been changed and are being cleaned regularly. Ditto for improved conditions in the brewing area. Brewers nights are being put on the schedule and the E9 brewers are holding their brews up to be examined in direct comparison to famous regional and national craft brews. Looking for even better things from E9 soon!

Good beer selection. Staff is very friendly. French dip is tasty. Many t.v.ís to watch, although the newest one is about 15 years old. Besides that, great place.
