Classic watering hole with an outstanding beer list, some rare Belgians and large range of Northwest brews, including some off menu rarities. Great service, fascinating and friendly clientele. No food, but try the Cuban sandwiches just down the street or St Andrews directly across. Or just drink beer.

Small, well-structured, compact interior. Ridiculous tap list, wide array of bottles, this is all known. I actually didn’t even drink anything when I visited, just chatted up the bartender for a while and took a look through their book. So while I can’t comment on quality of their glassware or something like infected lines, I doubt that sort of thing is ever a problem. These guys have their shit together for sure.

Small and characterful beer bar with a nice array of top-notch beers from around the world and with no particular regions of emphasis except perhaps more from the US than anywhere else. A few rarities can be found here. Service is excellent, and one can spend hours in here with a smile plastered on your face Also, it’s down the road from another worthwhile stop on the Seattle beer tour: Duck Island.

(Visited 09/2013): Über Tavern is located in the Fremont/Ballard area of northern Seattle on Aurora Avenue and 76th. I am unsure about parking options in the area as I walked, and the place is on a relatively busy street.

The interior opens to some table seating and there is a short bar in the rear. Behind the bar are well-lit coolers which offer a nice view of the bottled options. Above that are digital boards listing the 18 draught beers. There is almost inexplicably a fire-pit in the middle of the place.

On my visit that included beers from Southern Tier, Backwoods, Green Flash and Anacortes. Different sized servings are available. The aforementioned bottled selection is a couple hundred strong and includes Mikkeller, Brouwerij Strubbe, Lost Abbey, HOTD and Cascade.

Service on a weekend afternoon was very good. This is definitely a beer geek’s beer bar.

I did not have any food on this visit.

All in all this is in my opinion a must-stop beer destination for visitors to Seattle.

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | October 8, 2013
A really small place, kind of a dive bar, yet classy inside. Fairly expensive, but truly good bottle selection, all-lined up for your eyes’ pleasure behind the bar in fridges. Professional service with just a barman behind the bar. The draught lines are all electronically monitored and well laid out and easy to follow, focusing mostly on local, often rarer alternatives. Reasonable serving sizes letting you enjoy as many different beers as possible. I would probably come back if visiting Seattle, but would look at the beer list first and am not convinced that in spite of its strong reputation, I’d put it in my Seattle top 2 beer bars. The bottle selection is really, really good though.

Awesome new addition to the already sick Seattle pub scene. Two blocks up from the impressive Duck Island, Uber is a similar laid-back hole in the wall. It’s a pure beer geek joint, too, with a massive fridge full of cool bottles and some great draft selections. I noticed I was having a hard time finding anything sessionable except for a few Germans, though. But seriously, tons of great beers and yet another can’t-miss place in a city that is overflowing with can’t-miss places.

Awesome beer bar no doubt. Wicked beers on tap featuring not just local but Belgian as well such as De Struise. Friendly and knowledgeable bartender. Sat around the middle table that had a flame crankin’, shooting the shit. Just get here and have a beer man.

Tiny bar in northern Seattle which a stupendous selection of draught brews, focusing on the local and powerful. Very nice bottle list as well. There are very few seats, so I recommend coming early. The menu changes often and is worth keeping track of. This place is good enough to make you consider leaving downtown Seattle for an entire evening...

Update 8/20/08 - it’s official, Uber is my favorite place in the world to get a beer. Thanks guys. Update - Visited again on 3/20/08. Great crowd, and ordered off the book of menus this time. The lineup was sick this time, really rare stuff. Just an incredible vibe all around, and the service was even better this time around. Thanks to the folks behind Uber for putting together such an incredible bar. Visited on 8/13/07, met after4ever for a few. This place is very simple - taps, bottles and just enough place to drink them. The tap and bottle selection was well represented by their web site when I was there. Bartender was very helpful in helping me choose the first beer. This is a great beer geek bar.

I have heard about Über for several years and finally I made the stop. Just a stones throw from the Fremont district this is a great place to visit for your serious beer needs. This is not for the newbie just getting there teeth wet for a light non hoppy ale with very little flavor. This place was made for the Beer Geek. They have a collection of beers that rivals with the best. On tap you can find Spaten, Avery, and new to the Pacific Northwest region was Southern Tier and you can find some very special Stone ales. These are just a few on the list. They have such an array of beers the Beer Geeks with Belgian, stout, hoppy and not so hoppy palates will find something. They even have meads on tap now that is cool. Still can not decide then take a look at the bottle list with over 100+ of some of the greatest beers in the world available the most sophisticated palate will find something to quench the thirst. So once you have found a special beer for your tasting pleasure sit back relax play a game or two watch the TV eat some munchies. If you’re really in the mood for a party grab a growler of your favorite tapped beverage and take that home you can even find a keg of something that will keep all your buddies happy. Parking is not abundant so find a side street park the car and in no time you will be there. The staff has great knowledge of the product and they can help the novice wade into the deep end of beer pool. This is a must stop when in Seattle. Über I will be back…
