Visited on a Tuesday, early evening on a rainy January evening. The immediate reaction to this place is that it is just crazy small. There are maybe 2 tables, a coupld of bar tables and seating for maybe 5 at the bar. Thatís it. It really had a nice, neighborhood vibe and appears to primarily be focused on high quality tap selections and showing soccer on tv, two ideas I can really get behind. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I didnít stay long, but will certainly be back.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

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

This is a great place. They have a world class tap list. Parking can be tight. The food was very good. This is a must stop place. Love the atmosphere.

Nice little neighborhood place. Nothing wrong with it at all. Just very small. It has a bar, a couple tvs, a pannini press, a cooler, and thats about it. So dont go in with massive expectations. Theyre absolutely fully sincere about beer here; they have great bottles and great taps happening. Its a nice setting, the service is good, and they should be thanked for helping the scene. That said, they have sandwiches, uncomfortable bar stools, and not a heck of a lot else.

Very small, but a great draft selection, and growlers as well. Dog friendly even inside. Good ambiance, friendly staff

Squirrel! Theyíre everywhere. This a small, cute place that transforms from coffee shop in the morning to neighborhood bar in the evening. Small but interesting draft list. Nice vibe.

Totally solid little cozy neighborhood beer bar; a renovated garage maybe? Given that this is where I finally tracked down my first taste of Pliny the Younger and that even then it was a neighborhood scene rather than a zoo -- props to this place. Soccer on the tube, other good beers on tap, obviously a beer-loverís bar without necessarily being a beer-geek destination. And frankly, if I lived in the neighborhood, that Iíd what Iíd want. Think Fiddlers with a bit less of the cozy. I like it.

Nice place, but a bit hard to find. Good, well kept tap list and a few bottles too. Service is great. Food is grilled sandwiches, nothing fancy. Overall a great place.

The Dray has 12 constantly rotating taps, and an expanding selection of mostly imported bottles available at the bar or to-go (they also fill growlers for about $14). They offer a small selection of sandwiches and pastries for food as well. The interior is small, but set up nicely. Twenty people could fit comfortably. One of the few things I could do without was the music...techno on a Sunday afternoon is overkill for me, no matter how chilled. The beer lineup this Sunday included Vicotry Pils, Baron Helles-Bock, Maritime Pacific Red Alt, Maredsous Tripel, Snoqualmie Falls Copperhead Pale Ale, Roots IPA, Port Townsend IPA, Mad River IPA, Van Steenberge Tripel, Big Time Blonde and Boundary Bay Reefnetter Pale Ale. The Dray is definitely a welcome addition to a great neighborhood. You could have yourself a solid night of drinking between here and the Tin Hat down the street. The owners know their beer and promise to keep some great things on tap at all times.

12 taps with nice selection of local and regional beers with occasional gems like Cascade Vlad; minimal food options and friendly staff; small and cozy with a nice neighborhood, soccer watching, book reading vibe; wish i lived closer and a nice addition to the beer scene

The bartender is the one pouring drafts and making espresso/sandwiches, so service can be understandably on a slow side. Said sandwiches are damn good, tap beer selection is okay - nothing fancy, though you will probably find something you like in a bottle. The ambiance is what really makes it a 5 star place.
