One of Seattle's iconic craft beer destinations. 60+ taps covering the country and the world, strong on Belgian and West Coast beers. Frequently unusual versions of standard craft ales. Also has an extensive whiskey line-up and limited wine. Each time I've been here I've been able to find something I've never tried, or special treats like Old Rasputin (which I've had tons of times in bottles) as a superb nitro pour. The food has changed over the years, there was a quite interesting Belgian oriented menu a few years ago, now more along the lines of bistro dishes. I had scallop ceviche on the last visit and my sister had the fish and frites, both were excellent, my ceviche came with plantain chips for dipping, which was a great combination. The service, despite a large crowd, was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Both the beer and food are excellent. The only drawback for me is that it is extremely popular and usually crowded in the evenings. The layout, which is a large room with large balcony overlooking the bar is attractive, lots of rustic wood, but as a result has poor acoustics and can be too loud for quiet conversation. On my last visit, We were able to sit out on a small open patio, which was much less noisy; unfortunately not always possible with Seattle weather. Other the noise, attributable to being too popular (if that's possible), a must visit in Seattle.
