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.
Popular beer-hall-style taproom plus outdoor beer garden. Line up at the bar for fresh Fremont Brewing standards plus special seasonal offerings and one-offs. New tasting room opening in mid September which will increase the taps to over 20.
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.
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.
Nanobrewery and pub in converted old house, doing quirky beers with unusual ingredients.
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!
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.
