I really enjoy this place. Itís small and cozy so I donít have to deal with a huge crowd(that does mean it crowds quickly though.) The 12(I believe) taps rotate rather quickly and I can always find at least a few beers Iím excited to try. The selections is catered toward the season and you can find everything from a double IPA to a lager to a sour to a stout depending on the month. The bottle selection is decent but then again Iíve never had to tap into it because of the great rotating taps. The staff is all very friendly and know what they are talking about. Overall I think this is a great neighborhood beer bar.
I really like The Dray, great place to go after work before heading back to West Seattle. I wish there was a bit more food selection, even though the food they do toss together is excellent. Great beer selection with rotating taps, they usually have 2 or three ipaís on taps so that makes me happy. And they are most likely to have a football ( the round ball type) or rugby on so there is always good entertainment.
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.

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.

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