Pubs on 29 Bus Line
Long overdue in Seattle, this cavernous neighborhood alehouse features only Washington beers and ciders on its taps. The bottle selection in the coolers is a little more wide-ranging. But when you're in a state with 350 breweries, why not feature them on tap?
Serving Pioneer Square area for more than a decade with good beer selection and good pub food.
Roomy taproom with kitchen and range of popular house beers. Maritime Pacific is the second-oldest of Ballard's breweries, operating since 1990.
Former home of Hilliard's brewery, now an outpost for California's Lagunitas Brewing. Cavernous taproom and brewery, simple interior, and now there's an on-prem kitchen.
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.
Small cozy taproom plus beer garden in good weather at this small-scale nanobrewery, with beers named after local mountains and other geographical sites. Pre-filled growlers available to go, too.
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.
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!
Simple no-frills taproom with big selection of crowd-pleasing beers brewed on-premises. Taproom moved to 14th NW location in May 2015, bigger with more seating and roomy beer deck in front. Reuben's has rapidly emerged as one of the best in the region. Photo above is original location a couple of blocks away.
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.
Pleasant single-room pub featuring an eclectic range of local, regional, and other craft brews. Pub snacks to accompany.
A downtown Seattle destination pub and brewery since 1989. Big, rambling, spacious, a showplace for Pike Brewing's range of beers.
