Pubs on 45 Bus Line
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.
A Seattle classic for more than 25 years, with a good range of local and regional craft beers and good pub food. Roomy pub with high ceiling plus an upstairs special-event space. Affiliated with Fiddler's Inn in North Seattle and the Hopvine on Capitol Hill.
Generous beer garden in front, pub opens to the great outdoors in good weather, beer selection is top-notch, Mexican street food from the kitchen. Pure genius. Don't miss this one.
Seattle offshoot of the venerable San Francisco pub. There's an on-line beer menu for those who want to see what's on. There's also liquor and a full kitchen. Don't plan on bringing the kids.
