JK (420) St. Louis Park, Minnesota | July 12, 2017
Located in an old house conveniently between Fremont and Reubens. We sat on the patio. Grapefruit sour was good, fruited lambic style beer was great. simple ambiance, average prices. small food menu but I didn’t eat, and there are so many interesting restaurants on the street, that is probably a better option. Worth a short visit.
A small brewpub in a small old house in Seattle. Bar is in a backroom with seating throughout the place. They had 11 taps on offer. Bartender was dissapointed that I ordered a sample of each beer despite it being on the menu. I did not try the food on my visit and prices were reasonable. Nothing too crazy here.
I love this place, as a place. Old house turned into a brewery. Still little rooms with found furniture. The second floor is particularly fun. just love coming here and bring out of towners.. The first time I came 3-4 years ago, I also loved the beer. However, in the past 2 years the beer has been close to undrinkable. Dont know what happened to it.
Cool space, an old house turned into a brewery. Feels like a funk house party, lots of people scattered throughout, a good amount of outdoor seating and the weather was lovely so that was certainly getting some use. 12 beers on, a bunch of neat things in terms of styles. Small but focused food menu offering a couple of sandwiches and some snacks.
Glad I stopped in, and wouldn’t mind visiting again next time I’m in Seattle. Worth a visit.
Odd spot with odd beers in a house a block from Brouwer’s. A fun stop for those with an open mind about bizarre adjuncts. If you’re already going to Brouwer’s, I recommend you stop in and at least grab a 4oz pour and take it all in.
A sort of retrofitted old house into a brewery with lots of different separate rooms, including an outdoor patio. Certainly makes for a unique character. Lots of beers on tap (over 10 on my visit), mostly of poor-to-average quality, though a couple were decent. It’s only a block from Brouwer’s Cafe, but I hadn’t visited until now. You can order 4 oz. pours of all beers for $2. Wouldn’t really recommend it for beer quality, but you can probably find a decent beer or two if you want to drink in Fremont and are tired of Brouwer’s.
An old house with lots of rooms, nooks and crannies. Service was haphazard like everything else, but endearing in its casual and relaxed pace. Lots of beers to choose from, most not great but 1-2 that stood out. They have food and food trucks but we didn’t eat. Pricing was reasonable. A fun spot to pop into, and easy enough since it is surrounded by breweries, just don’t expect to be impressed, just amused.
Huge mixed bag with this place - first of all, the ambiance is awesome - in a renovated old house that seems more like it could be a coffee shop than a brewery (where they make the beer, I don’t know - the basement?) - I was in here with some other ratebeer folks during a Seahawks playoff game and even then there were times when we had practically the whole place to ourselves (even though they had a television playing the game) - laid-back vibe from the place and staff - they have a small food menu (I don’t know where the hell they make the food, either) - I had a smoked salmon sandwhich which was decent - the beers favor the "experimental" side, but represent an interesting range of styles - sadly, as is often the case in situation like this, that does not often lead to stellar beer - I shared a large sample tray that started out promising, but I gave up on giving the beers an honest shot (ie. taking the time to rate them) after the fourth because they kept getting increasingly worse and remained at least mediocre throughout - I still had a ton of fun here, but this was more due to the people I was sharing the experience with than it was the place itself - still, a very interesting spot and a cool hangout - just don’t expect great beer.
Laid back place, I enjoyed a couple of hours on the small patio on a sunny Sunday afternoon. They usually have 6-7 of their own beers, and a couple of ciders on tap from Schilling; their beers are in general ok, not exceptional. The food menu is very restricted, they have snacks, pastry rolls and meat pies; I had a pie (not anything I eat frequently) and I was not impressed. Kind service style. Good music, and at soft volume. Wifi available. Not the highlight of Seattle, but nice for chilling out a bit.
