I went here twice, and had great experiences both times. Perhaps one of my favorite places Iíve been to. Itís easily walkable from downtown. Ambiance is awesome...itís an old church or former funeral home. They have about 25 beers on tap, and there are several interesting and local brews combined with national brews. Bartenders appreciate good beer, and they definitely can be snarky and hostile, like to the asshat who asked if they had Fat Tire. I had the cheese and charcuterie platter, which was delicious. I really enjoyed this place, and have no clue why itís not rated higher. They donít really have a bottle list.

More like food bar with relatively good beer selection. Decent tap list but nothing special. In fact quite many American sour ales on tap. Small glasses not available.

A really cool looking place, crowded but still service at the bar Is decent. Had some snacks and was not impressed with the food. Beer list is pretty impressive, but crowd is ordering as much cocktails as beer. No samples or tasting trays so not ticker friendly. A good place, but check the menu online ahead of time.

Finally checked this place out in Capitol Hill. Parking is difficult around here, but itís worth it to check this place out. Seems almost like an old train station inside, with archways and an old school aesthetic. Very good beer list, though on the pricy side. Service is friendly and attentive. Worth a stop in the area, though not one of the best bars in town.

Part of our pubcrawl when we came for the Seahawks vs Panthers playoff game. This was our favourite spot for sure-- cool building, great vibe, terrific tap list, and great food (I had the charceuterie board). Iíll be back for sure.

These guys did a great job with the spot and put on a lot of events all year and give a good deal of attention to not only the beer, but the liquor and food as well. Services is always great as is the crowd/atmosphere. I would frequent here more often if it werenít for the physical location as I am just rarely on the hill. Would highly recommend this place however to anyone visiting or new to the area.

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.
