I liked this pub. I did not try the food, so I have no friggin idea how good it is. I liked the beers that they brewed, but there were some that sucked. The weisse is crap. The double ale sucks also. The XXXXX stout is great, and so is old bawdy. I tried a 2006 version of it. The best part for me was I did not know that I came during happy hour, and our bill was cut in half. I was so surprised, and happy. I was also pretty damn drunk when I left this place. I was visiting my parents, and I from Atlanta, and we donít have stuff like this back home, so people from Seattle, appreciate what you have. The bartender was good, but he didnít recognize me 10 seconds after I paid the bill to get the bathroom code. I was thinking either short-term memory loss, or idiot. He was a good bartender he just wasnít that bright. Overall, great place, with SOME good beers. Give it a try if you are in Seattle.

the place has lots of awards, as being family friendly, best singles, best bartender etc. and it is good. yet it is a little busy, loud, and the food prices are a little higher than i would expect. $9 hamburgers, and $15 cheese and meat plate that gives you 4 pieces of cheese and 7 slices of meat. the brew prices are about right, and they have lots of tee-shirts "been there, got the tee-shirt". atmosphere is a nice brew pub type. serves the basic brew house fair, burgers, sandwiches, pizza, just wish that they had some steak or a good rib-eye.

When I visited the Pike it was crowded with people. I think the beer was good and I think they had a good selection. I asked if it was possible to bay their beerlabels but I could not. That was a dissapointment.

Cool location. Feels a little like a factory with crazy crap on the walls. NIce atmosphere and good brews as well. Bartenders were friendly and the food looked pretty good. Alll the draft beers were very reasonably priced. Good cask beers and they change those pretty regularly so they should definately be worth a look. If one is in the area this should be worth a stop.

Down in the basement of this mall-type complex adjacent to the market, from my memory of my last visit a decade ago I thought it was located further away, but there it was. I liked the atmosphere a lot, they seemed to have captured the feel of the old market and threw in enough antique breweriana to make it all come together. There was a closed off section at the back that we peeked in to look closer that had a more 50ís feel to it and was very cool as well. The collection of Orval schwag made me a bit jealous. We were at the bar at the far corner near the serving tanks, having a jolly time with the bartendress, who was really friendly and seemed genuinely happy to serve you, a pint of stout in hand for me and a local cider for the missus. A nice lady sitting next to me with her husband asked me if I liked the Beer. I did, and did sort of an on the fly rating, figuring that she was perhaps interested in trying it out. Turns out she and her husband own the place! We chatted a bit with them and they were super nice too. We only hung around for a pair of pints and a taster or two, we had a great time and the Beer was fine.

Nice little place down by the market. I wish you could pick what you wanted in the sampler and I wish they had some more seasonals but overall it was pretty good.

Visited mid-afternoon on a moderately busy Saturday back in February. In a great area of town by the market (near the flying fish!), fun rockiní guitar music jazzed up the back room but the whole place is huge and bright with different rooms catering to the varied patrons: families in the restaurant, drinkers at the bar, tasters and smaller groups in the retro room. Service was quick and friendly and very helpful. Sampling was fun with 8 of their own on tap, though many seemed similar in composition. Food looked to be typical pub/restaurant fare but I did not partake this time. Overall, a great local brewpub for out-of-towners.

I visited the brewery while on a backpacking trip on the West coast with my girlfriend. And man am I glad I did! They have a fantastic selection, and i love how you have to go down the stairs from the market into the brewpub to check it all out. The bartenders were very knowledgable and helpful, and the atmosphere was great. Very diverse, and spacious. If you head out to Seattle, you have to stop here!

Very nice brewpub right at the end of pike market (main tourist area). Atmosphere was very nice, had beer samplers, and food was excellent at a decent price. IMO much better than elysian fields. Def worth a stop.

Feels local. Also feels commercial. So maybe it wants me to think itís local. But they brew a nice selection of styles and as far as I tasted, their Belgians and XXXXX Stout are competent, so theyíre fine in my book.

I didnít drink here, but walked through during a visit to Pike Place. Nice cozy decor with lots of beer related memorabilia to look at. This would be a fun place to drink beer. It had been some time since Iíd had a Pike beer, and the only one Iíve rated is the Pike XXX Stout, which is their highest rated beer. I see their stable is fairly pedestrian, perhaps in the above average category. With more time in Seattle, I would have loved to visit if youíre looking for a downtown brewpub it seems like a fun place to go. If youíre looking for a great selection of beer, go over to Taphouse Grill.
