Pubs on 19 Bus Line
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.
Approach this one with respect; Holy Mountain was one of Seattle's most-anticipated brewery openings ever, and it continues to make sought-after beers. Saisons, farmhouse ales, sours, barrel-aging projects, and more. Consider this one a must.
Originally on 1st Avenue, near Pike Place Market and a short walk away from the excellent Clouburst Brewing taproom, now relocated to a larger space with excellent views of Elliott Bay and Puget Sound. Super popular with everyone, locals and tourists alike, with wide range of house beers. Beers can be packaged in crowlers to take away, too.
Capitol Hill was first to the beer hall fore with its Alpine-inspired Rhein Haus. Queen Anne Beer Hall has more of a central European inspiration, as the abundance of German, Austrian, and Belgian beers on offer makes immediately clear, and the food menu reinforces.
Newer gastropub in Belltown. Smaller beer selection than some, but well-chosen.
A downtown Seattle destination pub and brewery since 1989. Big, rambling, spacious, a showplace for Pike Brewing's range of beers.
Old-school Seattle original, classic old-school tavern near Pike Place market features good pub food and local beers on tap.
