Nice classy spot in Ballard, much like the Sixgill in Fremont (which I believe is a sister bar). Nice draft selection. On the pricey side. Service has been hit or miss for me. Not a place Iíd go out of my way for unless they have an event or something extra special on draft, but a good place to go if youíre in the neighborhood.

Very nice spot here, and was worth the 20 minutes it took to find a decent parking spot on a Thursday evening. Really nice selection of taps, and a very intriguing bottle list, that I put some work on. A little pricey I noticed. Food menu is limited, and a little to fancy for my usual taste, though it looked good. Cheese plates, etc. Small place, but clearly the word is out on this place, because it was packed. Impressed though, Didnít try the food, just grabbed a couple beers. Enjoyed my visit though, Iíll definitely be back.

The place is modern and nice, the room is not too big and it has a high ceiling, so itís almost a cube; they have about 15 beers and ciders on tap, but they donít pour small samples (flights). The music is just a bit too loud.

Great taplist, rivaling Urban Family across the street. Cool atmosphere with very friendly service. Definitely will go back when in the neighbourhood. Recommended when in the area, though I prefer Urban Family across the street.

Pretty good selection of local and foreign brews that mostly come in imperial pint glasses in the $6-8 range. The interior design is top notch and the map and guide book library is a nice touch. Definitely worth hitting up while in Ballard.

Dig the location and the interior; perfect for people watching on a sunday afternoon, since the farmerís market is right there. Pick three tapas for 12 bucks - deal. Beer selection is above average, proper glassware.

This place has a fantastic tap list and great food. Great atmosphere and I love the feel. Brand new and going to be a force in the Beer tap world. I will be back.

I really dig the vibe of this place. Cozy and casual, loft-style. Quality tap-list of regional brews. At first the prices seemed steep. ALmost everything was $6+ but you get imperial pints. Thereís a little library wall of hiking books and hiking maps. Very pacific northwest. One peculiar thing is that I saw an employee clean the bathrooms like every 20 minutes.

Beer and snacks...a deceptively artless summary of what these guys are up to. Yes, itís a bar with beer and wine (no liquor) and the snacks are just out of the fridge. But the vibe they create around this lineup is pretty exceptional. They put a dozen good west coast beers on tap, mixing in the occasional national or international visitor. There are a dozen good bottles of wine, at least, and another dozen or so bottles of good beer. One of the better small lineups of beer and wine in town. The "small plates" program, which they also refer to as tapas, is really just charcuterie done with great enthusiasm. There are half a dozen meats, half a dozen cheese, a couple veggie options. You order in groups of 3, 5, or 7, and you get a nice rectangular plate with mustards and jams thrown in, as well as little REI stainless camp bowls full of bread slices. Itís an awesome way to get a round of appetizers and drinks out of the way on your way to dinner. All the meats and cheeses are particularly good. The decor is heavily focused on hiking in the NW, mostly in WA. Maps, framed shots of trees deep in terminal virgin forests, lots of old NW school post and beam architecture reminiscent of an old lodge. A great place and well worth a visit.

Great rotating draft selection with several ciders & Northwest beers that are hard to find. Excellent wine list as well. Only criticism is that theyíre lacking international picks, but are improving in that category. All drafts are imperial pints unless you order one of the boozier items.
