Been here twice, wont be back. Not that I hated it but the beer is just too disappointing. Place looks nice from the outside but on the inside keep getting the feeling like they are still in the middle of construction and havenít had a chance to clean up. They have TVs for sports. Yeah, donít know what else to say. Skip it, if you want their beer try the new location on Alki Beach.

Itís a cool space for sure. As of spring 2016, they still have a bit of work to do before itís finished, but itís shaping up amazingly. Itís right on the busy hillclimb side of Fauntleroy, and you have to run around back to get to the parking lot. But once you settle in, itís an unbelievably relaxing place to sit and watch the traffic.

The main door is a big neo-rustic heavy wooden slab, with light showing between the planks. Next to that are three huge all-glass roll-up garage doors, which flood the place with light all the time, and air when theyíre open. The bar comes out almost to the doors. Lots of tall tables and tall stools throughout. They have the wall roughed in to separate the brewhouse from the taphouse, but right now you can walk right between the frames. Still, the setting feels finished, and feels fantastic.

They offer a ton of house beers, along with a few guests and I think some wine and maybe a cider or something. Theyíre right next door to Jones BBQ, which carries orders over to the taphouse. Match made in heaven between those two. Iím lukewarm on Jones, but they definitely have their fans, and itís hard to argue the combination of fresh beer and hand-delivered bbq.

For years, this place was always closed whenever youíd drive by, but theyíve suddenly made all this effort to spruce things up, even hired an experienced pro brewer from out of state. Theyíre really making a go of it, and the crowds seem to be paying off their efforts. There are tons of flat screens around the taproom, tuned to the game--this place is a hangout.

I canít really call this the most welcoming place, though, to be honest. I stood at the bar forever while the barkeep puttered around, then he came over when a regular walked in behind me--and chatted with the regular for a while. He took my order pretty much without a word, and then he and the regular laughed about how difficult i was making his job by paying in cash. Thatís fine if you donít need the business, I guess.

Interesting place that features as a cafe, bar and serves food. Comfortable, hipster-ish feel inside. 11 house beers on tap when we visited, mostly of not so good to average quality, though a couple were alright. Flights are a good deal at $6 for a flight of 4. Service was extremely friendly and astute. Doubt Iíll go back due to the subpar beer, but itís a good place to hang out at.

Stopped in for a couple beers. No food but next door if some tasty bbq. Small place open with a couple tvís playing the world cup. Looks like it is dog friendly about 5 or 6 dogs hanging out. Pretty good tap list and also guest taps.
