This is an interesting place. Itís down in the market place near the water. Itís pretty dark in some spots as this is built into the hill. They have a ton of house taps, which is nice, and they do some neat stuff. I got to talk to the brewer for a while at the Hard Liver fest and he had a ton of ideas and projects. A good percentage of what was on tap is also available in bottles around town. This was around the time when the first Entire Stout came out which sadly tuned out to be infected. Despite being full the service was pretty good. Flights came out quickly. We didnít eat but the food looked good.

The Pike Pub is not a good place to visit at all. Looks like a Red Robin and a Sports Bar with a pathetic little flashy bar in back, staffed by inept employees who don’t know who is sitting where and what they ordered. I visited this place because their bottled beed is decent, but the draft only oatmeal stout was gross... like drinking buttery cola. Skip this place is you can. Rock Bottom is only 4 short blocks away and they make much better beer. The Pike Pub is located downstairs of a first floor office building which smells like urine and piss on the outside and is dirty and unkempt on the inside. It’s like being in a McDonalds Playplace cave.

A few blocks away from the market in a building with a number of other businesses. Kind of a goofy place in terms of decor. Signs and plaques and all sorts of garbage all over the walls. Maybe a little cramped, too.
They had a lot of beers on tap, but I just grabbed an IPA (perhaps a poor choice as it was mediocre). From the sounds of it and my experiences in the past, their beers on the whole are just kind of meh.
Could be cheaper, I guess, but itís sort of a tourist trap place near the market. Convenient stop since youíll likely check out the market if youíre visiting.

(Visited 05/2008): Pike Brewery is located at one end of the Pike Market near the Arcade. Parking can be found at various meters and garages in the immediate area.
The brewpub is on the lower level, and you can actually look down into the bar from above which is pretty cool. The interior is large with segmented areas and multiple bars.
Pike has around 10 beers on draught, and has a sampler available featuring 6 beers for $7.95. Many of the beers are the standard Amber, Pale, IPA, Scottish fare but there are a couple seasonals like a Weisse and a Tripel. All of the beers are average to above average. The XXX Stout is particularly good.
Service was good on a weekday afternoon.
I tried the fish & chips and it was very good.
Overall I would say no visit to the Pike Market would be complete without hitting the Pike Pub & Brewery while you are there.

A West Coast classic from all those years ago and still very popular in spite of its location close to the market perhaps, but ultimately in a depressing mall. Still, itís large enough with its several rooms, heavily decorated with breweriana and historical pictures that you only remember the location when you get out. Inside, all the classics are there plus several other more experimental brews. I had not even realized before visiting that they brewed lagers, so I focused on stuff I did not know and was satisfied with an above average quality. For anyone whoís not from Washington state, I expect something new will be on tap. The food was standard pub fare, but the place is large enough and with a full and efficient kitchen that they offer more than burgers. It may no longer be an absolute most these days, but it remains a very worthwhile stop, and even moreso if your stay is limited to downtown.

Iíve been here a few times and just recently returned. It hasnít changed. A handful of Pike beers on tap (mmmm...XXXXX Stout) plus other MduVin products like Ayinger and Lindemans. Vibe is kind of sports bar-like but also the microbrew vibe is in there as well. Decor has some fake kitsch value. Slightly touristy.

First stop in Seattle for a beer. Short walk from the market and easy enough to locate. Entered from street level which brings you to the top of stairs overlooking the pub. Busy establishment with restaurant seating and a bar in the corner. Grabbed a pint but wasnít too fussed in staying long. If youíre in town then you will most come here at some point during your stay.

Very touristy spot, but that made it kind of fun for an out of towner like me. The beers are decent enough to give it substance. Decor is very stock brewpub. Service was good for a lunch time beer. Itís convenient for sightseeing as itís right in the market.

As everyone has stated, this place is located in the bottom area of the Pike Place market. The restaurant and bars are comprised of several levels, and a bunch of nooks and crannies. I stopped in midday on a rainy January Tuesday. The service I had what I believe is the main bar was attentive and effiicient. There is a lot to look at on the walls, interesting Brewiana and bric a brac. bric a brac everywhere. Place feels very warm and established. If you are near the place certainly worth hitting up. I did not look closely in the coolers, but they appeared to have a decent take out beer selection.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Impressive beer memorabilia museum all over the many rooms of this brewery restaurant, transperced by the brewing equipment to the depths of the packaging facility. Lunch was excellent (delicious stuffed salmon) and the beers were spot-on. Great location close to Pike Place market and one of the most memorable restaurants to walk around if you are into brewing history. Charles Finkel is a very engaging man as well; he deserves all the success he has gotten.
