Great Beer Selection

Great selection of locally brewed beers and a very friendly staff. Food as fine - not Seattle's best, but definitely edible. Worth a stop.

If you like your English ales definitely worth visiting this place as it offers such a comparable selection to back home. The bar staff are fab, offering advice and lots of free samples. Worth seeking our even if just slightly outside the centre.

I had the panzanella salad, hubs had Mac and cheese, both were amazing. I had the stout float with amazing brownies. Great beer. This is one of our favorite spots.

Been drinkng Hale's Ales for almost 20 years. Went and tried their seasonal stuff including a saison that was quite well made. A pretty typical bar, but worth it if you want to discover or rediscover these Norhtwest veteran´s brews.

Excellent beer! The atmosphere was good and the flights of beer are worth it! A great Ballard brewery to try. Doesn't look like much on the outside but go ahead inside!

Small brewery in fremont/Ballard area. Great atmosphere for lunch or dinner. You can see right into the brewery from the restaurant. They have an upstairs area for parties too. As many times as they've been here I've never seen a tour, not sure when they do tours. But it would be neat to get to tour the place. It gets... More

Pretty good food, pretty good happy hours, variable service and servers. For some unknown reason Trip Advisor has asked me to update this message. I have no idea what they are looking for. It is an automated system and that may explain why.

Stopped in to watch a game, there's not too many TV's (about 3), but they good my game on and I had a mushroom swiss burger and salad and a beer sampler. The beers are very good here. The server was great. I'd say this is a "restaurant", not an "attraction".

I love beer, especially craft breweries and this was the only thing I wanted to do on my recent trip up to the Seattle area. The beer was great, especially the cask IPA and the Cream on nitro. Service was a little slow and our server wasn't as knowledgeable about the beers as I prefer but she was very nice... More
