Billed as "Seattle's Original Brewpub" (opened in 1988) in a old brick building across from the University of Washington. Shares ownership with Triple Rock brewpub in Berkeley, CA.
Huge beer-hall of a brewpub with unusual naming that eschews style conventions for the house beers (inviting drinkers to guess the style instead), lots of seating, food trucks, and the most interesting restroom setup in town. That latter feature is one of the things most mentioned here.
Nanobrewery with taproom in popular, walkable urban neighborhood.
Good-quality gastropub in Capitol Hill area with very good beer selection and cocktails.
Formerly Von Trapp's. A Seattle variation on the German beer hall theme, which means German eats, a mix of German and local craft beers, and bocce ball courts.
Big but not too big, and a neighborhood watering hole that doubles as a concept ready to be duplicated elsewhere: not a surprise, given that this comes from the same people who gave the region its two Taphouse Grill 160-tap restaurants. STOUT dials it back to 20 drafts, lots of bottled beers, and a straight-up pub food menu. Worth a stop on a Capitol Hill pub crawl.
Big bar and restaurant in basement level. 160 taps.
