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.
Approach this one with respect; Holy Mountain was one of Seattle's most-anticipated brewery openings ever, and it continues to make sought-after beers. Saisons, farmhouse ales, sours, barrel-aging projects, and more. Consider this one a must.
Roomy taproom with kitchen and range of popular house beers. Maritime Pacific is the second-oldest of Ballard's breweries, operating since 1990.
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.
Good range of tap beers, casual L-shaped room with roomy bar (there's liquor and wine too), and delicious Asian (Vietnamese, Thai) food. Winning!
Simple no-frills taproom with big selection of crowd-pleasing beers brewed on-premises. Taproom moved to 14th NW location in May 2015, bigger with more seating and roomy beer deck in front. Reuben's has rapidly emerged as one of the best in the region. Photo above is original location a couple of blocks away.
Good-sized Irish-themed bar and restaurant on busy Mercer Street in Lower Queen Anne. It looks like it's been there for years. That's because it has: more than three decades, making it one that's stood the test of time. Note: hours are bar times; kitchen closes earlier.
Old-school Seattle original, classic old-school tavern near Pike Place market features good pub food and local beers on tap.
