Pirate themed bar.....AWESOME! Replica pirate flags drape the beams above your head while the floor beneath your chair is painted to resemble an antique nautical chart. Even the sample glasses have a pirate flag and good ol’ &quo;Yo-Ho-Ho!&quo;. The service was very good, not much pirate spirit, but they’re learning. The beers were good, lots of them. Didn’t have much food. Great place just for the ambience! GO HERE NOW!
Solid little brewpub located in a slightly industrial block near the Ballard/Fremont border. Highlights from the sampler were the dry-hopped Islander, the DIPA and the Christmas Ale. The food is adequately hearty to absorb all the beer.
Stopped in on a Seattle brew trip. Pretty cool place. The Onion Rings and little burgers Great. It was sweet they busted out a keg that was on oak and all of this other crazy stuff. Placed the keg on the counter top and started to pour out pints. Really cool and by the way the brew was great.
The Taproom has a sizable bar and plenty of tables squeezed into a small space and a "deck area" for nicer weather; most maritime brews available and usually a cask as well; cool vibe in this place with mix of more blue collar folks compared to newer places in the area; love the little burgers and other eclectic food items; heard they were moving to a new one?

I had a typical sampler tray outside and found their brews solid. Cool little joint. The location did change from the previous Leary Way location to 11th and Ballard.

First stop on the Suttree Seattle Tour 07. Kind of a little hole-in-the-wall joint, rather crowded on a Monday afternoon. Lots of the MP beers on tap and cask. I had the Jolly Roger and Imperial Pale, plus a sampler (don’t look at me like that, I was on Vacation). All very good, and the service was tentative. Oh, and the Mini Ahi and Mini burgers were great, but you gotta try the smoked onion rings.
How could you not like this place, it looks like pirates of the carribean exploded in here! great little sliders with weird dips (beware the spicy one), and a wide variety of folks go here. Just need to impove on being able to tell what beers are on tap.
A small spot on the NW corner of the Ballard Bridge offering their own ales, often twisted. I’ve had the same beer on: CO2, Dry-hopped, Cask, and Nitro at one sitting. Their kitchen is INSANE, smoking their own food out back (how do they get it lit-). The deep fried pickles need to wait 5 min or you get burnt. They put their beer in everything, esp. the extreme sauces for the little burger/Mahi/Osyster sandwiches. They change their fresh sheet for beyond Grubbin’s that are worth ALL the effort of getting there. I choose not to wait for a table (who would leave?). The place gets unfortunately LOUD. There is an outside seating area.
Go there, and taste for yourself (Argh!).
