Certainly a tourist heavy place, but the kitsch and pieces of flair addorning the walls donít distact from the beers, and probably add to them because this place is just overwhelmingly full of stuff. Itís like a brewery set up inside a flea market museum. Staff is quite friendly, which is probably a perk for being in the tourist area, as does having a bunch of straightforward easy and accessible beers, but thereís a couple unique things as well. The music of my teenage years plays over the sound system, a mix of 90s grunge and alt rock. Not the greatest beer around, and solely for beer thereís Cloudburst a few blocks away. But the atmosphere in here, full of locals and a ton of tourists, a load of stuff on the walls, is definitely worth stopping in to experience. Neat space, and in an area youíll want to visit anyway if youíre from out of town.
Stopped in on a Thursday for lunch. About 14?beers on tap. Solid selection, beers were mediocre to quite good. Split a couple flights and had the Mac and cheese and nachos. Nothing mind blowing food wise but was solid.
Really an awesom atmosphere. Very unique. Would recommend just for the atmosphere and shit on the walls.
I love this place, not for the beer or food but for the nostalgia. The kitsch is sublime here. It really is a museum/hoarding palace. Touristy yet somehow feels local. I highly recommend a visit for out of towner, especially b/c its right near the Market. Get a sampler, try the guest taps, look around and maybe order some standard PNW pub fair for 1 or 2 bucks more than average. Just take in the history and kitsch.
Classic Seattle spot. Well suited to tourists or those showing tourists around, as its in the great Pike Place Market already. Usually something new or draft-only available, but otherwise youíll just find a broader selection of the pretty good Pike beers than can be found anywhere else. Quirky pub atmosphere, lots of knick-knacks around, the wooden bar at the back is where Iíd head. Lots of tables for families and groups, but all in all a bit cramped. Old brewing equipment in the center of the space is pretty cool to see. If youíre in the area, well worth a stop in for a rest from the touring.
A nice, very scenic brewery in the heart of tourist town, WA. Beautiful brewery with several bar tops throughout the place, though all of them arent always open. Great beers every time, with their usual selections plus a couple guest beers and ciders. A ton of Pike merch available here, as well as 22 ounce bottles of their beer. Love the food here, I get something different every time and havenít had a bad experience. No surprise my favorite part of the market.
Visited early on Thursday June 25, 2015. Not that long after they opened. Sat at the bar, did a flight of 6 beers, their regular ones, didnít eat since the food menu didnít inspire me much. Wifi wasnít working, even after restarting the router twice. Fast and friendly service. Quite a few people stopping by for food and beer both, seems a popular lunch hang out. A bunch of memorabilia around the walls. Very centrally located. Got a bus (120 Downtown) to 3rd Ave & Union St, then a not too long walk to get here. Would avoid parking around here. Plenty of beers on with their seasonals as well. Glad I went, would go back to if in town and this area.
