(Visited 09/2012 on the Seattle Road Dogs Tour): Located right across the street from Safeco on Royal Brougham Way. They have parking lots on both sides of the building but I hear the place gets pretty packed on game day.

The inside is fairly open with the bar toward the center of the space and table seating throughout. The brewing equipment is visible behind glass. The bar has a large board listing the beers, including one-offs.

As for the beers they feature around 12 Pyramid brews with the majority being their standard offerings, plus a seasonal or two (Oktoberfest on my visit) and the aforementioned one-offs. On my visit these included Hop Tep 2, Red Wheat with Fig and a Barleywine. The specialty stuff was higher quality than what I usually associate with Pyramid.

Service for the single-person tour group was good. The bartender was friendly and lined up samples of just about everything, and I got to meet the brewer and take a brief tour.

I did not have any food on my visit.

Overall this is a pretty good spot to hit near the ballpark.

Great location if you are going to a game, and a large nice venue if you arenít. This is not an intimate pub but a big busy bar with pretty good food. Portions are huge and I am in love with their sauces. They cater to the masses, so it is friendly but not exciting. Service was a little generic and you canít pick your tasters.

Visited twice during my stay in Seattle. The first time was part of a local brewery tour. The other stops provided 6-8 beers for their tastings, while Pyramid only allowed 3. I didnít try the restaurant, but it was big and clearly doing a booming business. The location is across the street from Safeco Stadium, which brings me to my second visit. An hour before the Mariners played, I stopped in the Pyramid beer garden with some friends. They provided lawn games (latterball and such) and tables for parking. It was simply a parking lot with a beer shack, but it was a great place to grab a drink before the game and a goldmine for the brewery. Iím glad that they are achieving such great success, but they could share the wealth with their customers a bit more.

July 2010. May have a biased opinion because I cannot get any Pyramid brews at home. Went early in the afternoon (no sports games were happening yet) and sat at the bar. Ambiance was beautiful- shiny bar, view of brew equipment, open kitchen. We tried about 12 taps and I particularly liked their version of an Apricot beer. Big sample pours made it a great deal. Will be a repeat next time Iím in Seattle.

Location is right near Safeco Field. It was nice to visit this location, but I probably wouldnít recommend it to others. The selection is pretty limited, probably 6-7 beers when I went, and the beers arenít that great either. It might be fun to grab a beer here before a baseball game, but thatís about it.

The only thing this place has going for it is its proximity vis a vis the sports venues. Bland food, mostly bland beer with a few paltry íspecialsí that kept me from walking out immediately. I guess its better than hanging out at the stadium before the game paying $10 for a 14oz. pour.

Stopped in here before going to a Mariners/Rays game. The outside patio was nice with a view of Safeco field right across the street. Definitely a great place to pregame and have some cheaper brews before going in and paying out the ass for a beer at the ballpark. They have some cute waitresses and nice mix of brews with a detailed beer menu. The outside area and inside had music and was full of life so the ambiance was great. Definitely hop in this place before a game.

Big open industrial type design. Gift shop as you enter, bigger bar past that. I sat in the dining room and had the sampler, cup of chili and a pizza. The sampler was nice, was allowed to choose 5, and the pours were approximately 6 ounces. The chili was fine, the pizza was pretty soupy. Service was attentive. Has more of a chain brewpub feel to it, but still worth hitting up. I would imagine my quiet lunch in January varies significantly to stopping by Pyramid before or after a Mariners game.

64 = ★★ (Just ok)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.
