People tend to forget that if it was not for Charles Finkel & Michael Jackson, the craft brewing industry would NOT be what it is now. Do not degredate anyone who has reached a level of success- (as I see some doing here in their ratings & comments) I would love to know that a TRUE craft beer touched the lives of many souls! A votre’ sante!
Cool basement location in Pike market, neighborhood bar feel, lots of old advertising on the walls and such. Beer was pretty good. If you’re visiting Seattle you’ll most likely end up at the market, so worth a stop!
Sat in the "museum section" which had awesome Seattle/pike/brewing memorabilia, beer selection was solid, lady serving me was hardly friendly, but seemed more than happy dealing with the crew next to me? She dropped the rating a fair bit, but was still worth going to*
Hmm yeah funny place this - Pike Place itself is of course kind of touristy and this spot has turned into a bit of a touristy cliché of what a brewpub should look like - so it’s kind of stuck in a bit of a timewarp with crap all over the walls and some faux English pub wooden stuff. The beers I had were pretty good though and there was a decent selection (not just 15 different pale ales!) and prices not out of whack. Didn’t eat, it looked decent but maybe a tad pricey.
Visited here in mid August ’16 while in town for vacation. Funky, multi-tiered, multi-roomed pub with loads of old beer memorabilia hanging everywhere. Have a large selection of their beers on tap, all of their regulars with a few one-offs and seasonals. Good place to stop in while perusing the Pike Place Market.
