Pubs in Queen Anne
Simple, utilitarian taproom with an interesting range of beers from a brewery that made its debut in September 2016. To the west of the Ballard Bridge, so actually in Magnolia - Interbay, and close to Urban Family Brewing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
After struggling under the Mollusk name, complete with menu revamps and repeated promotions and alterations to the business model, Mollusk's restaurant and bar split off from the brewing business to become the professionally owned and managed Dexter Brewhouse, featuring Mollusk beers on tap, and a solid range of pub food from the enourmous kitchen. Let's hope it prospers in this current incarnation. Note: actual location is South Lake Union, on other side of Aurora Ave N from Queen Anne.
A Magnolia (but not far from Queen Anne) outpost for Irish food and drink, Mulleady's is a popular neighborhood local. Irish breakfast at weekends.
Capitol Hill was first to the beer hall fore with its Alpine-inspired Rhein Haus. Queen Anne Beer Hall has more of a central European inspiration, as the abundance of German, Austrian, and Belgian beers on offer makes immediately clear, and the food menu reinforces.
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!
Big utilitarian taproom, sometimes with a food truck parked out front, serving some seriously underrated beers, including saisons and barrel-aged fruit sours. A little off the beaten path but worth a visit. Location is west of the Ballard Bridge, so more Magnolia (Interbay) than Queen Anne.
