An unusual looking place, a mix of industrial and techno decor, Iím sure it appeals to some., selection seemed fair, I only had time for a sample set (6), two other samples were thrown in by one of the guys as soon as we started talking beer and I asked, "have you heard of Ratebeer"? Music was pretty good, old school and Jazz, not too loud either, good. Nice folks there, mostly tourists. Food looked and smelled good, I had already eaten so I didnít try any. Interesting palce and being right down the street from the Pikes Fish Market, itís worth a stop to try some interesting brews like their "Amber Hefeweisen" and "Imperial Brown Ale".
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 clichť of what a brewpub should look like - so itís 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. Didnít eat, it looked decent but maybe a tad pricey.
Visited here in mid August í16 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.
