Pubs on 4 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.
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.
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.
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.
