Visited on Friday evening, 7th November í14 at around 6.30pm, thanks to Ferris for the wheels. Medium sized venue, Iím guessing an old power station/room? There is a lot of play on the ípowerí theme with big electric switches on the walls and insulators making table legs etc. 10 beers on tap, all house brews, plus a cider. So so beers, usual generic choices, scotch, pumpkin and a few hoppies, stout, porter. My average beer score came out at 3.18, we couldnít bo bothered to tick 3 of them. Tasters available, $6 for 5 so pretty decent vfm in my book - 4oz pours. You could also get 8oz pours on all beers. Bottle list ran to twenty or so with some solid choices, whats not to like about a venue where you can kick back with a bottle of Speedway! Service was adequate, the place was pretty busy as well, we hit the evening diner prime time spot. We couldnít find a seat and stood along a rail with a small table ledge just in front of the bar, although we felt a little in the way. More of a mom and pop eatery brew pub than one that is ever going to gain a reputation for good beer but worth stopping by if in the area.

Odd and a little intimidating from the outside, but inside quite a nice bustling place filled with themed articles from the power industry. Jammed to the gills, this is the hot spot in town and primarily for food. Bar is tiny and beer doesnít seem to be a big focus. Good too because beer is pretty average at best. We couldnít sit so didnít eat and they do have a tasting flight. Lots of ticks, but really not that great.

Many visits over the past five years, I always enjoy the Powerhouse. The decor is really fun in the ’electric company’ theme and there is always a good crowd. The bar could be bigger and roomier: be prepared to make friends with the person next to you. Having said that, the bar is the place to be if you want to talk beer and get quick service. Service can be slower at the tables and occasional errors crop up amongst the very cute wait staff - life is a compromise. Selection is limited to seven regulars, three seasonals, a brewed root beer and one guest handle, latterly a sour. But all are tasty examples of a wide variety of styles and the brewer is almost always around for chats. Tours are offerred by appointment. Food is good: better than pub food but short of gastropub levels. Fairly dear for Puyallup, but well worth it and the beer to go in 2L soda bottles is a bargain (the medicine bottles are cool, but not at all a bargain). Parking is limited in the lot, but there is heaps of space across the tracks. A bit off the beaten track, but worth the effort.

Cool decor, scattered flat screens for sports viewing, though you wonít get any volume as the place is oriented towards socialising, food and beer. Nice selection of PH brews and usually a guest tap or two. Growlers and medicine bottles to go. Some staff are very knowledgeable about beer, others less so. Sit at the bar if you want to talk beer, though things are invariably busy there. Food is very good, well above average for a pub. One of my favorite spots in the PNW, though a bit out of the way.

Nice brick interior. Weird theme with the powerhouse, but it somehow works. Servers are nice but not that knowledgeable about the beer. The food ainít bad and not that pricey. The beer is slightly above average. Iíd comeback more often if they would be open past 10 pm on a Friday night.

Beers are not too cold here, which is a plus. The electricity theme is interesting - includes voltage warning signs in the bathrooms. Trains are definitely running nearby. Suggestion: eat food somewhere else before or after for better value and product.

This place gets max points for ambiance, a cool old powerhouse building beautifully redone with hardwood floors and comfortable seating arrangements. The beer selection was impressive, a lot of seasonal taps and standards, it was really tough having to try them all but someone had to do it. The food though was average at best. A french dip sandwich was mediocre and reminiscent of something youíd find wrapped up in foil and served with a styrofoam cup of jus. Not bad, just not special. The real secret here are the seasonals on tap. Go there at least once to try them. Iíd love to go back and give it another go, it seems like since the last time I visited theyíve updated their menu.

Awesome historical reclamation to get the structure converted to a brewhouse. I really dig that, as Iíve said probably a million times in place ratings by now. You can feel the trains rumbling by at times. Clean, well-lit, friendly, well-organized. The food is solid. They only have one faucet pouring anything other than their own beers, but it was Festina Peche, which was pretty cool. Granted, itís October and the beer doesnít really belong, but at least theyíre pushing crisp weisses on the citizens of this rather bucolic valley and seeing what happens. If thatís not a sign of beer love, itís at least mischievous. The beers show promise, if not greatness yet. Iíll be back.
