Fun little place, everything is on classic english style pump casks. Down in the Georgetown area, and it is a pretty spacious place. Specialize in traditional English style ales. Check it out if you are in the area.

I stopped in to check it out. I was accross the street at the bottle shop. Walked over and they were closed, but as any beer guy would do, I startyed to look in the windows and knock on the door. My lucky day one of the brewers was inside and let me in. He gave me the run down and some free samples. A pretty cool place big and open inside. The brew was all pretty good on a English session idea. I will stop in again next time I am in Seattle for sure.

At Machine House you can step simultaneously into both brewing history and brewing tradition. The building is an amazing old structure built at Seattle Brewing and Malting Company many, many decades ago (in Seattle architectural history, that’s the paleolithic age), now given over to producing classic English session ale styles, thankfully on fairly modern equipment. This would easily go five stars, but the setting is incredibly spartan. Really, all there is to do here is sit on a stool (or a keg), and drink golds, bitters, or milds by the pint or the half-pint. There’s a bit of soccer on the small flat screen, and they’re equipped enough to take credit cards on their iPad, but generally speaking, it’s an industrial setting. The bathroom is bare concrete and it’s a bit chilly in the winter. I saw at least one GF with a thousand-yard stare on her face while her BF chatted merrily about beer with his neighbors at the bar. It’s not a boy’s club, but it’s a certain kind of ambiance, to be sure. And the ambiance is also its strength. You can pull down a little cut between brick buildings off Airport Way. It’s exactly across from Full Throttle Bottles. There’s a ton of parking back there, and that’s where the entrance is, right under the big ol’ smokestack. The tasting room is bare bones. There’s a little bar they built, with three beer engines pulling their classic English styles. There is a big bank of gigantic windows with arched tops, and there’s about a thousand square feet, maybe a bit more, of open area. There’s a cooling room, a keg storage room, and tanks and kettles at one end. You could spend ten minutes messing stuff up and you’d be able to convince anybody the place had been abandoned. But they’re brand, brand new, and they probably have day jobs, so this is all part of the charm. The beers are fantastic. They’re on cask, so the carbonation levels are low, but they’re doing amazing things with old styles in the 3-4% ABV range. They’re just knocking them out of the park (or whatever the synonymous British idiom would be for doing things very well). It’s a charming and low-cost way to soak up Seattle brewing history and UK brewing tradition from your stool. Or keg. Whatever it is you happen to be sitting on.
