Stopped in on Sunday afternoon. A true tavern, just ales, chips and peanuts. Many pool tables and they had free pool on this particular Sunday afternoon. Had an extensive bottle list and around 15 taps. Had some Hales on Nitro and even something from Big Time Brewery there as well. Nice and quiet friendly place. I had the Cold Hop on tap and it was great. Always a proper pour and the proper glassware was well. I've heard that they had cask ale there but didn't have any on my visit. I would recommend it.

Great pub a little off the beaten path in West Seattle. I really like this place. Unlike many pubs in the PNW, this place is really welcoming to outsiders- I don't at all get the vibe of annoyance frrom the pourers and servers when they have to break away from conversation with the regulars to serve you. Super friendly people who know beer. Great atmosphere as well. Two rooms here, the one in the front is a comfortable tradiional pub with small tables, sofas, a fireplace, a nice bar, lots of wood. Very comfortable, and no tvs or any other distractions from the beer. The room in back has games, pool tables, big screen tvs with the games on and another bar that primarily serves scotch and other liquor. Really the best of both worlds- a great pub experience up front and a great game day experience in the back. The beer we sampled was top quality from clean lines. Nice selection on draft as well- we were there during their IPA fest, which was mostly local IPAs on tap, some quite rare, others barrel aged. There were also nice standbyes like Obsidian stout on Nitro-tap. First time I'd been here and really one of the nicest spots in Seattle for a beer. You owe it to yoursel to give it a try when in town- or to make the trek to West Seattle if you live elsewhere in the city and haven't been.

Located in West Seattle just down the street from Elliott Bay Brewing, I visited the Beveridge Place while vacationing in Seattle. I just happened to stop by on the first day of their recent nine day Barleywine Bacchanal, and my time here was one of the highlights of my trip. They had barleywine after barleywine after barleywine on draft...around 20 total, I believe. I limited myself to six 3 oz samples and left wishing I had more time to spend exploring. Finding a SINGLE barleywine on draft is nearly impossible in Oklahoma. The bottled list was extensive and inviting as well, but we, along the the vast majority of the others there, stuck to the barleywines.
The atmosphere was amazingly comfortable. We spent our time on one of the couches and probably could've been there all day if it wasn't for other obligations. Granted it was 3-4 in the afternoon, but we found it relaxing and a great place to just sit back and enjoy.
Visiting this bar will be top priority if I'm ever in Seattle again. I'd be a regular if I was a local.

The homophonic name of this bar is derived from the name of its street in West Seattle: Beveridge Place.
This is an exceptional bar. The beer, the atmosphere, the clientele, the service are all just right. Nothing is over the top its like a balanced, well structured beer. First of all, the bar seems uncontrived. It seems to have come together out of what works rather than come theme conceived of. In the front, there is a gorgeous old wood back bar, the bar top is old bowling alley lane wood, and former tap handles adorn the walls. There are couches and tables, and the lighting is neither too bright nor too dim. There people drinking and socializing seem intelligent and uninterested in the SeeAndBeScene. There is also a room in the back with pool tables, darts, and television. Its much less refined than the room up front, which almost has the feel of somebodys inviting and spacious living room.
Their beer selection is superb when you factor in the bottles. They usually have about a dozen taps, local and distant, frequently rotating, and always high quality. They seems to carry more craft lagers than most places I visit in the Pacific Northwest. Their bottle selection reads like a fine wine list. They have old barley wines, a very impressive selection of Belgian beers, and older beers by Dogfish Head (for example) that I didnt even know existed.
There is no food served at the bar, but there are pub snacks and menus from local restaurants.
The service is knowledgeable and competent, but not overly friendly I must say. Rather than turning me off though, it conveyed a little bit of their protective pride of this jewel of a bar. It made me want to be a regular (which I certainly would be if I lived nearby).
There were two patrons in full lederhosen, for no particular occasion, drinking some German beers, and there was a local craft brewer from Renton (not listed on BeerAdvocte; read: I have a mission) with a superb cask of strong ale. This bar is truly not to be missed.

I truly wish this place was closer to home, but at leasts it's a direct hour long bus ride.
First off the beer list is top notch. They may not have the widest array of taps in Seattle but there's nothing but quality. They're pretty busy so the selection seems to always be different except for 3-4 "staples." The bottle selection is also very interesting. Some aged barleywines, good Belgians and other interesting things. Bottles of the really good stuff are kind of pricey but not by any means outrageous. Older vintage barleywines may set you back quite a bit, and they should.
The atmosphere is really two bars in one. The front room has a great wood bar back with a bartop that used to be a bowling lane. There are several tables and a couch area too. There are no TVs in this room which is a big deal for some people. The back room has TVs and pool tables and other tavern-type entertainments. It gets my 5 for atmosphere due to the two room set-up. There's a room that should work for anyone.
They have no food but there is no problem bringing in whatever you like. They have a couple menus behind the bar for local places that will deliver to them.

This is a great pub in West Seattle. They have about 15 different beers on tap and they seem to rotate beers in and out on a fairly regular basis. They seem to have a good selection of bottled beers but I typically order from the taps. They also make a good effort to serve each beer in it's proper glass which is a nice change of pace from the standard pint. The bar staff is friendly and generally knowledgeable about the beers they have on tap and (depending on who's working the bar) beer in general. The space itself is divided into two sections. The front room where the bar is located is a quieter section for meeting friends and talking. The bar itself is actually an old bowling lane which I found clever. They have a wide selection of board games for entertainment purposes as well. The back room contains a few pool tables, a foosball table, 3 dart boards, several pinball machines and video games, and a big screen TV. The back section is also home to a jukebox with a very eclectic music selection. Because of all these things the back room tends to be a little louder. They do not serve food here but have no problems with you bringing in your own food and eating it there. All in all this is a great place for anyone who enjoys a good beer. Stop by if you're in the neighborhood.
