This place is pretty awesome. Large, spacious room as you enter, with about 22 beers on tap, and some killer local ciders in bottles. It almost has the feel of a beer hall or even a museum type place. In the side room, there is a real dartboard, with pool tables, and some other bar games. A small outdoor patio is also adjacent. The bartender was a sweetheart, and really good. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, and wish I could have stayed longer. Itís about a 35-40 minute bus ride from downtown on the 54 route...thatís the main drawback for any traveler. One of my favorite places in Seattle. Beers were mostly local things, which is my preference when I am travelling.
Itís been a long time since I saw this place featured on a bank commercial. Itís actually what got me down here in the first place several years ago. A really cool spot that I couple with my trip to Beer Junction almost every time, due to the convenience. Really fun, unique place with a taplist that always has something special/exclusive/delicious. Table games, pool, shuffle board. Dog Friendly. BYOF. Always loved this place.
This was the first bar I took my puppy shortly after moving to Seattle. This is a rarity, a bar that allows dogs but no kids. Otherwise, this is a top tier Seattle bar. Small patio, comfy, how-like atmosphere inside with couches, wooden selves, pool tables, and little touches everywhere. They put on fun special events. Otherwise, the tap list has a few standard local taps and varies otherwise. Sometimes the tap list is dull, so check before going. No food inside. The staff are nice. Orderly system for ordering at the bar. Parking an be hard in the area on busy special events. Its one of my fav spots. For out of towners, it may be a little too far to trek. But doing the West Seattle tour is worthwhile. Prices are better than than Beer Junction.
Really charming place in West Seattle, with a fairly expansive interior and a somewhat rustic feeling with wooden tables and the like. Large and varied tap list; you can do flights of 6 at a pretty reasonable price. Service is very hospitable and friendly. Highly recommended stop.
Visited in the evening of Tuesday June 23, 2015. My friend drove us here, parked just around the corner. Sat by the bar. Sampled two mead from bottle and one from tap. Living room kind of feel to it with various dd furniture like a safe etc. Feels warm and friendly. Saw a bus stop right outside as well. Fast and friendly service. Nice place I could see myself going back to if a bit earlier in the evening than this time.
As others have said here, I really wanted to like this place. I was attracted by their beer events, such as their barleywine festival. The antique bar itself is very attractive. The stuffed chairs very inviting. But each of the 5 times Iíve been there, it has been a bummer.
Seated at the bar to order a beer, more than one bartender has been genuinely unfriendly. One of them barked at me to stand in line at the end of the bar instead of serving me at my seat at the bar. A surly "You donít appear to be worthy of our establishment so Iíll purposely ignore you" kind of attitude every time.
Also, it is crowded, hard to get around in the place. Seating was rickety, tables didnít sit square on the floor, causing multiple spills.
Worst of all, the shuffleboard table is poorly maintained.
Sorry, I wonít be back.
Neighbourhood bar but much better than average. Mostly local microbreweries. Service is good and they know about beer. Tried to take one of the locals sour stout but they insisted that I have to taste it before ordering. That was good because beer was horrible and I choose to take something else.
Iíve been here a few times. Every time Iíve been in I think, "yeah, this is a place Iíd love to sit back and have a few beers." Chill ambiance, spacious enough with games and a comfy den-like feel in one room, TVs and pool/darts/etc in the next. Great rotating taplist thatís heavy on northwest offerings. Bottle list is quite nice, too. Wish BPP was closer to my neighborhood.
Love the selection, the staff and the ability to enjoy a beer and "work" away from the office on a weekday afternoon. The only reason, I donít give it perfect scores all around is the fact that they are pet friendly. Sorry, Iím just not a pet (dog, cats) person. I get itís West Seattle and everyone has a dog so I live it with in order to have great beer, wi-fi and close to work. Everyone I know loves this place and itís obvious why after you go for beer.
