Pubs on 28 Bus Line
Part of the Ballard Brewery District, short walk from Hale's, simple taproom with house beers on tap. Food can be brought in, and Bourbon and Bones is close by and recommended.
Huge, cavernous space with long bar and lots of different beers (64 taps, 300 bottles) and liquor too, as well as plenty of food, including big platters of pommes frites to soak up the beer. Regular festivals featuring barley wines, IPAs, stouts, sours, and barrel-aged beers.
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.
The brewery has more than three decades behind it; the pub, not quite as much, but it's been a Ballard fixture since the mid-1990s. It's still a popular local pub, and is now the eastern starting point for the Ballard Brewery Tour.
Opened in spring 2015, continuing the growth of Seattle's Ballard Brewery District. Roomy inside, outdoor seating in clement weather.
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.
Nanobrewery and pub in converted old house, doing quirky beers with unusual ingredients.
Small-scale artisanal neighborhood brewery in the Ballard Brewery District. The brewery is small but its range of beers on offer isn't. Beer garden in good weather.

Cozy little locals' pub right on NW 65th Street. Simple menu of panini, well thought-out beer list.
