Large two-room pub (main room bar and games room) with outdoor seating in clement weather. Main room at entry has bar area (order at bar, usually no table service). No food but own food from nearby take out places allowed, or have it delivered. Widely regarded as one of Seattle's best.
Big northwest-style beer hall, lots on tap, good pub eats. Parking's a pain here, but there's also good public transport access.
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.
West Seattle's longest-running brewpub, family-friendly with big pub-food menu. Beers are brewed with organically-grown ingredients.
Bottle shop with a bar and 40+ taps. Tasting flights available. No food but many nearby take out places.
Old-school Seattle original, classic old-school tavern near Pike Place market features good pub food and local beers on tap.
Beer hall with sausages and French fries. Lots of different sausages. Lots of beer too, and the selection is usually pretty good. Too bad their web site is so relentlessly uninformative and useless. Note: location is actually more SLU than downtown.
Re-opened in June 2015 after hiatus, now featuring food and coffee alongside house-brewed beer.
