Sweet beer bar with a nice selection of bottles and taps, no food, with a small fire in the middle. Plenty of expensive but super good beer nights here. I don’t know what else to say, but it’s a great place for a beer geek. No smoking, small, quiet, nerdy. I like!
Almost twenty beers on a rotating tap. They have a lot of German beer on tap. You can always find something new or hard to find here In addition, they have at least 100 bottled beers. Intimate atmosphere and low key. This place is a must for anyone wanting to check out a fantastic beer bar.

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.
100 = ★★★★★ (A very special beer place)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Great bar, fantastic tap lineup and pretty decent bottle selection. I love that they’ll fill up a mason jar to go. No lame pool tables or dartboards, just beer, beer, and beer.
Bigger is not always better, but better beer is ALWAYS better. A little hole in the wall place on highway 99 just north of Greenlake ; if you blink you’ll drive right past it. Pretty small inside here, but with an incredible beer menu which should satisfy any beer geeks desires. Best time to find a seat here seems to be late afternoon shortly after they open. Lots of top notch craft brews and Belgians on tap and in bottles. A great place to strike up a beer conversation with fellow beer geeks.
In late May they were pouring Deschutes The Abyss and Midnight Sun’s Envy among others. Prices are reasonable considering the quality.
Just do the Uber!! Excellent.
I wasn’t terribly impressed by this place, it had been talked up here and amongst locals but I think its somewhat a visual mirage. The beer selection was definitely better than most places but the ambiance is contrived: the modern neon beer lights, the huge fridge dominating the wall behind the bar, and that stupid natural gas hearth with glass crystals (not to mention the morons extinguishing the burner and re-lighting it to a ‘whooof’ and odor of sulfur gas). I truly adore the skeleton beer label paintings on the wall – very nice touch; but the place doesn’t meld. A couple of the beers on tap had a diacetyl flavour which is a no-no. I’ll definitely be back as I suspect I wasn’t there when the tap list was at its best. This place has most of the markings for beer mecca but a couple of main things still hold it back.
Small, but welcoming. The selection of beers is top notch. The taps are constantly rotating rarities.The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I love this place. This is one of the reasons why I wish I didn’t move from Northern Seattle.
A great little place with an excellent selection of taps and all kinds of bottles, including some you don’t see even in Seattle very often. Bartender was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Just go!

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.
