Located in a artist, hippie area, itís a medium sized building located across the street from a good burrito restaurant. Was able to try a number of beers, including a couple of IPA, some on cask. Elliot Bay got especially busy after 5pm, so youíll have to have patience with the waitstaff.

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.
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.
Visited in March of 2008, Monday evening. There was a nice crowd in here of locals. I took the last spot at the bar and almost immediately was included in conversation. Nice vibe. The brewpub overall has a nice bar area, bar tables and a larger dining room. All nicely done, with a space for everyone. I only had time for one Pint and a taster, no time for food on this trip. They had a very large number of beers on, so should be something for everyone. Though not outstanding, the beer was certainly good enough to make this place worth a visit. The one word I would to describe this place is comfortable.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Went back for a quick visit. The house beers havenít changed a whole lot in terms of selection, but they have added several new guest taps, and seem to feature some of the more interesting local brews.
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.
Great ales. Parking is an issue. Good fries. Handy facilities. Worth the trip West.

The beers where very good the place was jammed with people. The look was just as I see almost all the others look like brick walls, posters and local art work hung on the wall. The service was so so they like the locals thatís for sure. Tons of extra beers on tap with great names was a little hard to find what I would really want. The servers where to busy to help with the decision. They do have good beers the place was very clean and kids can come with the folks. The WiFi was not working but they it works off and on. Parking was a huge issue very limited. I will go back one day to check it out and get some more great beers. The Stout and IPA was to die for.
Good pub grub in an area that needs it. Nice house-made beers, usually well-chosen guest taps as well. Food is solid. Service is pretty flaky at times; itís not a hurry-up spot for an efficiently timed meal. Husky Deli across the street makes a natural dessert stop afterward.
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.
