I’ve been here a number of times, and it’s a reasonable enough brewpub. In a locale without other first-rate options, I could see being quite grateful for its presence. The entire place is beautiful in a modern museum sort of way, they’ve got a wide range of their brews on tap, the food is quite passable for pub fare. But...like the relatively mediocre beers they brew and serve, this place lacks soul. Think Gordon Biersch but better. With Brouwers a couple of blocks away and Elysian Tangletown and the Big Time Brewery within striking distance, I don’t see myself coming here very often (if ever) in the future.

I visited this place after Brouwer’s cafe on a Friday afternoon. There is a large brewery on the right as you walk in, with the brewpub portion being on the immediate left in a windowed-off room. Long bar with some couches as well as booths present. Bright, well-lit. They had about 10 beers on tap while I was there and the bartender was prompt and attentive. I had some samples that were a buck a piece. I did not have the food. Bathrooms were spacious and clean. I enjoyed the beer and the time I spent here. Relaxing.

Nice place...quite large with a bar area and "family" dining area. Good beers and good food. Usually have some nice seasonals available.

All the ambiance of an airport lounge, BUT a seat at the bar will be rewarded by great bar-tenders, attentive service and an interesting crowd. NOTE: if dining on a Sunday afternoon (or during a slow time), make sure that you are seated in an area where your server can see you, otherwise, you may be forgotten for a long time...

The place still looks brand-new after a few years. Huge sprawling dining/drinking rooms. Some say Hale’s is a genuine artisanal craft brewer; others see it as just a stalwart micro with its share of the market. Either opinion can have a nice meal here. Efficient (if occasionally utilitarian) service, good choices up and down the menu, comfortable couches and tables/chairs. They’ve thought of everything; the kitchen borders on emerging from the pub grub ranks into serious consideration as a restaurant. You can take buddies or families here. Probably nothing special as a place to impress a first date.

Large brewery building, tough to find parking, so you may end up parked in the Fred Meyer parking lot out back. Has as indoor dining area enclosed within the brewery, with a long bar and a big back room of dining tables. The pub only beer selection is worth the trip.

Upscale trendy brewpub thats food is every bit as good or better than its beer. Enjoyed the beer but had less than a stellar Klosh there. A great place to take a family, wife or a date.

Visited here on a Friday night in August of 2003 - the place was hopping. Had at least a dozen of their beers on tap - the three I had were of high quality. Very nice upscale decor and the brewing area is open outside the restaurant with diagrams and descriptions of the equipment. Tours are available during certain times of the week. Food was very good and had a large selection of dishes avaialable - not just Pub Grub. Good, attentive service. Parking was limited though - had to hoof it up a hill about a quarter of a mile.
