One of Seattle's newest breweries and taprooms, opened and run by former Elysian brewer Steve Luke. Interesting and well-made range of ales and, yes, a pretty good Pilsner lager too.
Serving Pioneer Square area for more than a decade with good beer selection and good pub food.
Part of the Seattle Alehouses trio (others are Columbia City Ale House and 74th Street Ale House), good food and enough craft brews on tap to keep it interesting.
McMenamins chain pubs are widely distributed in Oregon and Washington; this is the Lower Queen Anne McMenamins local. No surprises for those familiar with McMenamins pubs: plenty of house brews, straight-up pub food.
Good range of tap beers, casual L-shaped room with roomy bar (there's liquor and wine too), and delicious Asian (Vietnamese, Thai) food. Winning!
Newer gastropub in Belltown. Smaller beer selection than some, but well-chosen.
Good-sized Irish-themed bar and restaurant on busy Mercer Street in Lower Queen Anne. It looks like it's been there for years. That's because it has: more than three decades, making it one that's stood the test of time. Note: hours are bar times; kitchen closes earlier.
Old-school Seattle original, classic old-school tavern near Pike Place market features good pub food and local beers on tap.
