Huge cavernous beer hall, plenty to eat and drink here, and this is where it all started for Elysian, which now has four eating and drinking venues and a production-only brewery, all within Seattle city limits. Wide-ranging assortment of beers, consistently one of the city's top-tier breweries.
Huge beer-hall of a brewpub with unusual naming that eschews style conventions for the house beers (inviting drinkers to guess the style instead), lots of seating, food trucks, and the most interesting restroom setup in town. That latter feature is one of the things most mentioned here.
Good-quality gastropub in Capitol Hill area with very good beer selection and cocktails.
Formerly Von Trapp's. A Seattle variation on the German beer hall theme, which means German eats, a mix of German and local craft beers, and bocce ball courts.
Good food and drink place with plenty of taxidermy on the walls. Part of local pub owner Linda Derschang's chainlet of bars and restaurants.
Big but not too big, and a neighborhood watering hole that doubles as a concept ready to be duplicated elsewhere: not a surprise, given that this comes from the same people who gave the region its two Taphouse Grill 160-tap restaurants. STOUT dials it back to 20 drafts, lots of bottled beers, and a straight-up pub food menu. Worth a stop on a Capitol Hill pub crawl.
