I lived in Seattle for 2 years and visited this place twice, both in the first 6 months. And I loved W. Seattle where I spent a lot more time but the beer bars were always a more interesting option. Its a typical, neighborhood, locals-love, been-here-before-the-craze brewpub. A little dim, no equipment here. Food and beer were average. This was the least favorite of their 3 locations but I would go again if I really wanted a brewpub. Bottom line: its fine but better options close by.
Parking is difficult and place is pack on a Tuesday.
Not worth the wait, specially no views and not a lot of choices.
Kid friendly, which is good.
Overall, a good place to hang out when you are in West Seattle, but you can always go to SODO for better beer and place to spend the evening
Visited in the evening of Tuesday June 23, 2015. Arrived around 19:30 or so. Sat upstairs with a friend. Had dinner that was good. Also sampled 7 beers via their flights. Quite a bit of people here, fairly busy. Service was good. Walked over from The Beer Junction. Would return if in the area, though if only out for drinks perhaps would select TBJ instead.
Nearby construction makes parking a little iffy, but this is a nice find. Wood everywhere makes the place feel warm. Long bar as you enter with a large selection on tap. Flights available. The food was above average and well priced. Will go back again.
Not a bad place at all. Their food is pretty good, actually, so you can easily convince even non-beer drinkers to come here. They have a few guest taps, but most of the beers are their own, and they have 10-12 of their own on. I donít think the beers are of the greatest quality, but they do have some solid options. Service can be a bit slow, especially when they get busy. Definitely worth a stop, though.
Second time. First time alone at bar this time with friends upstairs with a view. Broad selection of their own beer, but most didnít appeal to me. Food was yummy, plentiful and fairly priced. The waiter was knowledgeable, unique (who uses swimming goggles to hold down hair?) and attentive.

Stopped in with some friends that were living close by at the time. This was my first day in Seattle and I didnít know what to expect but the whole south east corner of the city seems kind of hippie. Lots of record and clothes shops, people hanging out on the cold rainy beach, and bicycles. Also, there is a brewpub right in the middle of it all. Actually now there are several but at that time there were only a few in the city. We had lunch and a sampler here. The food was alright but very California. I kind of wanted a big greasy burger but we ordered from the lunch menu. The beers were OK and there were eight to pick from including a seasonal saison and a marzen. I think the saison may have been my favorite along with the pale ale. Service was friendly and even brought tasters of the seasonals even though they donít normally come in the sampler sets. Neither of my friends live in that neighborhood anymore so Iím not sure if Iíll get back there but I would like to get back to Seattle at some point so maybe Iíll stop in again.

Smaller and darker than the Burien Location. A fairly large list of beers on tap for a brewpub--and they even offer taps for beers that they donít brew. The menu and pricing is about average for a brewpub and this West Seattle location has some items on the menu which they donít have in Burien. Iíve been here many times and the service is always very good.
Had some delicious lunch and a sampler of beer on a Sunday afternoon here. Great food, good service and very tasty brews. Good prices too, especially on the beer. Definitely a recommended stop if in the area.
