Great historic location in one of Washingtonís great towns. The food is good, the service acceptable, the ambience is nice... but the beer is the star here! Make sure you try the Queen Ninaís Imprial. In the mood for a margarita? Fresh squeezed. Yum. The Wookie! Rules! Brew On!

This pub is what all small town breweries should be like. Itís housed in an amazing old city building, has very high ceiling, large circular bar tables, and the bar itself is a work of art: very colorful and well crafted. The servers were awesome to talk to, they knew their beer and had some good opinions, and can spot a beer drinker fairly well. I scribbled some RateBeer graffiti on the bathroom chalkboard.

Great place to knock back some pints. Live music (bluegrass) played loud enough to know its there but not so loud that you canít hear. Friendly staff and locals, high ceilings, and a great bar. All cocktails are made with fresh-squeezed citrus which almost looked good enough to put my beer down. Eclectic decor and some decent food make this an awesome place to grab a pint (or two, or eight). Entertaining to watch the female owner totally take the piss out of a drunk who thought he could talk smack to her.

Great place with lots of history. Ten tap handles and a brewer who knows what heís doing. Service was great at getting the food and beer to us, but they took a while when we asked for the bill. Tres European?

Went to this place not long after it opened. That meant they had 4 beers on tap, no problem though they were all great, if you like hops. Hoppy beers seem to be the word here, thats no worries for me, i like hops. The authentic bar is just amazing. The same brass rail from the 1800ís. Very knowledgable bar staff, yes they serve hard liquor as well. The food is decent. Quite possibly the most unique brewery Iíve been to, considering its in a rather old building. A must see if near the area.

Was here for the Strange Brewfest last weekend.....great time, great brew pub and nice people. Will definitely go back, at the very least for the brew fest next year! Relaxed setting, good beer(what I tried). Note: When I go next year, donít trip and fall down in the bar.

Spacious, red-walled bar area with actual wooden bar tables (a rarity), weathered brick dining area, little nooks with chintzy couches and comfy upholstered chairs. Lava lamp collection. Alternative music was college station-ish, but better. Eclectic, arty, fun, and architecturally cool. Thereís more I didnít see; billiards upstairs? Quirky local art is tasteful and kept to a minimum. I include in that category the gent sipping PBR from the can. Despite being only a quarter full, the spirited clientele (20- to 50-somethings) kept up a pleasant din. There were several that I would swear were homeless, but turned out to be ungroomed slobs with cellphones and goodwill wardrobes. Service and food were good. Very good beers.

Had a nice lunch here with my wife and child. We came in after a nice drive up the hood canal. The service was awesome we loved the atmosphere. Just a simple pub with great art and a fun feel. The huge bar area with the bar was just what one would look for in an old bar. They have pool tables upstairs and with the no smoking so you can pay with out issues. Lots of beer on tap over 10 of their own taps. The food was awesome and they serve lots of it. This was a fun place I will come back for the Strange brew festival next winter. Will check this place out in the summer I bet it is rocking then. The beers did have a flavor that was a tad too hoppy but that goes to show you what they do in the Pac NW.

Food was fantastic, beer pretty good with seven of theirs on draft. Service was OK and they had run out of things but it was 7PM on a Monday night.
