Regularly has Seattle brewed beers
The following pubs regularly have Seattle brewed beers on tap.
Long overdue in Seattle, this cavernous neighborhood alehouse features only Washington beers and ciders on its taps. The bottle selection in the coolers is a little more wide-ranging. But when you're in a state with 350 breweries, why not feature them on tap?
Simple taproom with full selection of house-brewed beers, which happen to be some of the best in Seattle.
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.
It will become apparent upon tasting the house barrel aged beers, perusing the guest taps, and tasting the excellent treats from the kitchen that the gang behind Elliott Bay Brewing have knocked it out of the park here. Up in Lake City and very much worth the journey.
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.
One of the best pubs in Seattle's diverse south end district of Columbia City.
Local pub-restaurant with good tap selection. Smallish bar area with beer patio outside, roomy dining area.
Sister pub-restaurant to the original Elliott Bay Brewing pub in West Seattle. Roomy, nice long bar, grand selection of house beers, pub-food menu, and occasional special events in a well-suited function room in the basement. Recommended.
Huge cavernous beer hall, plenty to eat and drink here, and this is where it all started for Elysian, which now has four eating and drinking venues and a production-only brewery, all within Seattle city limits. Wide-ranging assortment of beers, consistently one of the city's top-tier breweries.
Cavernous big kids' playground with mini-golf, games, and plenty of Washington beers on tap, right down by Pioneer Square.
Tasting room and small brewery in South Seattle (Columbia City). No kitchen, but food may be brought in.
Technically, Future Primitive is just outside Seattle city limits in White Center, but let's not quibble over a couple of blocks. Founded by veterans of Seattle's craft beer scene, this is the third brewery to occupy this building. Beers comprise a good range of craft-beer standards, and the kettles are helmed by veteran brewer Kevin Watson. Food truck permanently parked outside provides beer-friendly snack options, and there's covered outdoor seating too.
Former home of Hilliard's brewery, now an outpost for California's Lagunitas Brewing. Cavernous taproom and brewery, simple interior, and now there's an on-prem kitchen.
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.
Pleasant neighborhood beer and wine bar with outdoor seating in good weather.
One-of-its kind pub, serving some of the best casked ales in the Pacific Northwest - certainly the most authentic. Machine House never did beers the easy way, opting for English-style cask ales in a world of CO2-keg craft brews. That this pub is even open is an accomplishment. It's a simple, relatively unadorned single-room beer bar, and the main attraction are those handpumps rising proudly behind the bar. Nine of them. This is a do-not-miss.
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.
Sister pub to Fremont's Sixgill, featuring an eclectic range of local, regional, and other craft brews. Pub snacks to accompany.
Originally on 1st Avenue, near Pike Place Market and a short walk away from the excellent Clouburst Brewing taproom, now relocated to a larger space with excellent views of Elliott Bay and Puget Sound. Super popular with everyone, locals and tourists alike, with wide range of house beers. Beers can be packaged in crowlers to take away, too.
Former funeral parlor converted into one of the city's best pubs. Beer list is updated in real-time, on-line.
Rambling two-level pub focused on very local beers from Seattle and nearby. One of the few around that still will pour Redhook beers. Ideally located a short walk from the Pike Place Market, in the heart of touristland. Affiliated with Seattle brewery touring company Road Dog Tours.
Every so often, a new pub or restaurant comes along that handily exceeds expectations. Such is the case with the Shambles, which combines craft beer, craft cocktails, and gastropub food elevated to some of the highest levels in town. This one's a must-visit.
Ken Provost departed north Seattle's Uber to open this little spot, and the taps boast one of the most inspired - some would say curated - selections in town. The Rainier tap is for more than a cheap beer: ask for an Old Man Provost to find out why. A must-visit.
Shiny new seafood-centric gastropub on main floor of Pike Place Market's South Arcade, directly upstairs from Pike's original brewery and pub. Open and spacious feel.
Big bar and restaurant in basement level. 160 taps.
So shiny, much new. Big, open, roomy Denny Regrade pub with a superb draft beer list, visible on big display screens behind the bar. No kitchen, so ordering in from nearby eateries is encouraged.
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.
Handsome, upscale new pub just south of Northgate shopping mall.
Re-opened in June 2015 after hiatus, now featuring food and coffee alongside house-brewed beer.
