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.

Had a great time we just signed for our home decided to stop by. The beers where great. Over the top with the brews and there trying to make something great. The food and services was also very good. The server tried to talk beer did a good job and was trying with all her heart. The place was an old Electric company so it was to style and cool looking. Watch for the trains they will make noise and add to your experience. This was a great time and I will be back for sure the beers are just that good. I will take a medicine bottle next time home full of 32oz of sweet beer.

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.

Enjoyed dinner a couple pints after watching the US Open at Chambers Bay. Close to the state fairgrounds, a renovated BP with the powerhouse theme. Sort of smallish, but decent space and we had a little privacy in the booth. Dinner was great, had the fire pasta, and three of the dozen or so beers on tap. Service was better than most other places on this trip.

Very cool place, comfortable and inviting. Nice brick and neat electric-themed paraphernalia. I especially liked the arcing "Frankenstein" thingie. Much more tasteful than a fern bar. Good service, Excellent food with a capital E. The customers are just as friendly as the waitstaff. A dozen brews on tap (one was rootbeer), brewed onsite or at sister brewpub Enginre House #9. All the beers were good, if slightly sweet and underhopped. I could live there.

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.

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 place, looks like an old firehouse or an electrical building judging by the name. All the tap handles have converters on them which is a nice touch. All brick facade with wood floors and a very clean stainless steel bar. 2 levels with a patio. Good service and very easy to find from the freeway.
