Sister pub to Brouwers
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.
Newer gastropub in Belltown. Smaller beer selection than some, but well-chosen.
Former tap room for the Elysian brewery, now independent and fully owned by one of Elysian's founders.
Old-school Seattle original, classic old-school tavern near Pike Place market features good pub food and local beers on tap.
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.
