A cool little place in an old building. Nice tap list with few specialties, didnít have time to check out their bottle selection. Food was tasty. Too bad they only serve 12oz or 16oz portions, even for the stronger beers.

Fun addition to Capitol Hill. On first glance it looks like a Wetherspoons because it is a well converted heritage building--a former funeral home! Inside they might have done better to pimp the goth potential. I wouldn't call it sterile but the music selection on Friday night was classic rock Clear Channel version?! That was disappointing. The food, however, was good. Porcini dusted popcorn :) pizzas in a gas fire oven good (kimchi pulled pork, etc). Decent tap list, though could use some more skillful curation. Service excellent. Attentive. We had to send a bad beer back and it was accepted without question. It sure is easy to nitpick in Seattle...although it could use a few tweaks (the music especially), it is a great place.

An awesome bar set inside an old building with Greek-style white pillars reminiscent of a bank or courthouse or something. A cozy pub environment but even though they advertised being a hot spot for Seahawks and Sounders games, I didnít actually see a TV inside...The beer list mainly features Pacific Northwest breweries (Alameda, Alaskan, Double Mt, Everybodyís, Firestone, Fremont, Laurelwood, Ninkasi, Silver City, etc) and one of the beers I got was run through a randall. Although I didnít get food, the menu mostly features pizza. Overall a great selection of mostly local beers so itís worth a stop, especially for an out-of-towner.

Going strong since spring of 2012. Convenient to central Seattle, easy walk from bus stop, strong beer selection + booze, good menu. One of Seattleís must-visit beer bars.

This place is very Brouwerís-esk. They have a fantastic taplist, and get some really cool kegs on occasion. It gets busy at times, so service is usually good but sometimes a bit slow. Havenít had the food yet, and prices are pretty standard. Very well done and a great addition to Capitol Hill.

Visited late on a Thursday evening in Noví12. I beleive the place had only opened earlier in the year and it is located in a former funeral home! The place was fairly busy and the only seats we could find were on stools at the bar. They have big electronic screens displaying the beer range above the bar. Good selection, 30+ taps, largely WA and OR but a few from other parts of the country also. Randaliser was in use and during our visit was infusing Sierra Nevadaís Hefeweizen with orange and hops! Good that the regular beer was also available so that you could do a comparison. Service was good and the bartend gave us a few samples and was happy to make suggestions. Iíll be heading back here on my next trip to Seattle.

Such a shame about the food here. The beers were all amazing and so was the selection. Itís a beautiful building too. That pizza though, great crust, incredible saltiness. Far too heavy on that.
