Billed as "Seattle's Original Brewpub" (opened in 1988) in a old brick building across from the University of Washington. Shares ownership with Triple Rock brewpub in Berkeley, CA.
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.
Huge, cavernous space with long bar and lots of different beers (64 taps, 300 bottles) and liquor too, as well as plenty of food, including big platters of pommes frites to soak up the beer. Regular festivals featuring barley wines, IPAs, stouts, sours, and barrel-aged beers.
Neighborhood pub, good beer and wine selection, food, popular brunch at weekends.
Classic basement pub in business since 1974, frequented by over-21 students from the nearby University of Washington and elsehwhere.
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.
One of the original craft-beer bars in Seattle, now more than three decades in business.
Local pub-restaurant with good tap selection. Smallish bar area with beer patio outside, roomy dining area.
Cool little pub, unique interior, including the bar seating. Good tap and bottled beer selection.
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.
West Seattle's longest-running brewpub, family-friendly with big pub-food menu. Beers are brewed with organically-grown ingredients.
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.
Actually just north of downtown in the South Lake Union (Cascade) district, this sister to the Prost! bars follows a similar pattern: all-German beer selection, with booze and food, but here, the food comes from a full kitchen.
One of Seattle's "3Pubs" group that also includes the venerable Latona and the Hopvine. Good neighborhood local with tap selection that leans heavily towards Pacific Northwest brews. Pizza kitchen too.
Seattle's branch of popular chain brewpub, specialized in German beer styles (lagers, weizens).
The brewery has more than three decades behind it; the pub, not quite as much, but it's been a Ballard fixture since the mid-1990s. It's still a popular local pub, and is now the eastern starting point for the Ballard Brewery Tour.
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.
Roomy taproom with kitchen and range of popular house beers. Maritime Pacific is the second-oldest of Ballard's breweries, operating since 1990.
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.
Neighborhood gastropub serving Frelard with better than average pub food, good selection of craft beer, and plenty of liquor.
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.
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.
Capitol Hill branch of the Portland (Oregon) based brewery and pub chain. Pub food, house brewed beers, and guest brews on tap in a comfortable two-level pub.
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.
In just a few years, Naked City has become one of Seattle's most well-regarded and popular craft breweries, and it's an excellent pub too, with a healthy mix of house and 'guest' taps. A must-visit when in Seattle. 28 taps include 4 ciders.
Nifty new Belltown gastropub, just a few minutes walk from the excellent TeKu Tavern. The tap selection and food menu here is first-rate, and No Anchor has rapidly gained an excellent reputation. Patio in front for outdoor drinking too.
Popular newer brewpub in downtown Seattle, very nearby to Pike Place Market and a short walk away from the excellent Clouburst Brewing taproom. Super popular with everyone, locals and tourists alike, with wide range of house beers. Beers can be packaged in crowlers to take away, too.
Nanobrewery and pub in converted old house, doing quirky beers with unusual ingredients.
A downtown Seattle destination pub and brewery since 1989. Big, rambling, spacious, a showplace for Pike Brewing's range of beers.
Former funeral parlor converted into one of the city's best pubs. Beer list is updated in real-time, on-line.
No-frills dive-y bar up on Greenwood Ave N with plenty of tap handles for everyone. Burgers and other pub grub on the menu.
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-quality gastropub in Capitol Hill area with very good beer selection and cocktails.
Northend pub with good tap selection and food, formerly Hudson House before new owners took over.
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!
Taproom of Schooner Exact brewery, with kitchen offering a good-quality pub food.
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.
Good food and drink place with plenty of taxidermy on the walls. Part of local pub owner Linda Derschang's chainlet of bars and restaurants.
Newer gastropub in Belltown. Smaller beer selection than some, but well-chosen.
Big but not too big, and a neighborhood watering hole that doubles as a concept ready to be duplicated elsewhere: not a surprise, given that this comes from the same people who gave the region its two Taphouse Grill 160-tap restaurants. STOUT dials it back to 20 drafts, lots of bottled beers, and a straight-up pub food menu. Worth a stop on a Capitol Hill pub crawl.
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.
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.
Formerly Von Trapp's. A Seattle variation on the German beer hall theme, which means German eats, a mix of German and local craft beers, and bocce ball courts.
Handsome, upscale new pub just south of Northgate shopping mall.
Popular sports bar in West Seattle, just a couple of doors down from Loc÷l. The place is larger than it looks, almost Tardis-like inside. TV screens everywhere for the sports fans. Plenty of beer, booze, and pub eats for all.
Generous beer garden in front, pub opens to the great outdoors in good weather, beer selection is top-notch, Mexican street food from the kitchen. Pure genius. Don't miss this one.
