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.

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

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.

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.

A brief, but exciting and ever changing draft selection and over 100 quality bottles to choose from. Love the wooden tables and the eccentric squirrel theme. Small and cozy on a weekday, but crowds uncomfortably on weekends.

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.
