Terrific neighborhood ale house, lots of space, pool tables, around 20 taps that look like theyíre often rotating and featuring seasonals. Lots of NW beers and a few interesting ones from national brewers, moving around all sorts of styles. Standard pub food it appears. Quintessential Seattle locals bar. Love it

Great place to grab a beer in N. Seattle. I was in here when Abyss was flowing for $4 a pint dangerous. 3 Baron Brewing beers on tap. Lots of great NW locals. Quiet on a Sunday afternoon, but probably gets pretty rowdy weekend evenings. Definitely a comfortable place to relax with a pint or play some pool.

One of the great overlooked Seattle beer bars. One of the managers is a definite beer nerd and constantly finds great kegs from any good WA brewery and plenty from outside the state.
The burgers are great, but if Michael (the beer nerd-long goatee, shaved head) isnít cooking, the other dishes can be hit or miss.
Best thing about the place is the living room vibe: very homey and neighborhoody. Half a dozen pool tables, lots of board games, lots of people who live and work nearby just hanging out. You can get fairly rare and amazing beer and kind of feel like youíre just over at a buddyís place.
