Uber used to be one of my favorite beer bars, but it seems that some of the staff have decided they are the end all be all in the Northwest, and the service has gone downhill. Still got good stuff on tap and good bottles, but I can’t support a place that has rude bartenders.

Went here this last weekend while in Seattle, heard many good things about this place. Excellent bottle selection of some top notch beers. Decent tap selection also very high quality beers. The only thing that bugged me about this place was the service. I don't think that I have ever seen a bartender with less personality than the one we had here. Its not that hard to be nice to people and whatnot, we were there for one beer and did not get a good vibe from things so we went to the bar down the road.

A: Walked in on a Sunday, only 2 others at the bar. Could tell they were there often. We drove yep from Tacoma to try the Flyers Cab Ride, upon arrival I was disappointed to find out it was unavailable despite the website saying so. However, the guy working did manage to get me a sample or two which was nice. The girl working the bar was also nice but really was not as smart on beer as she made out to be. Also opening a bottle and only sharing it with your buds at the bar when a few other patrons are there is probably not good, not even offer but no biggie. It was pretty laid back, smaller than I thought but cool place but did not get a big, nice craft beer loving vibe from the other patrons or staff

Q: Quality was good. I thought the handles were ok but the bottle selection more than made up for it

S: Cant complain

S: Very good, bottles are great, draft selection was ok

F: Did not have

I did think this place was a bit overpriced. $13 for a bottle of Stone OG? Decent stop, wont be back.

Stopped in here with UA8 for a couple beers, they had an '08 Stone IRS aged in Elijah Craig bourbon barrels which was phenomenal and it was only $5/10oz pour! I got a couple fresh hop beers and they had abacus and FW 14th for sale in bottles.

The place is really small and cozy, lots of cool are and stuff, good music and a nice bar, the location of is easy to find and the prices are dirt cheap. They do growler fills of all their beers I think. The guy working there was friendly and seemed to know his stuff which is always a plus. I don't think they had and food.

After hearing so much about this place and the really high rating it receives here -- I was looking forward to finally checking this place out. The first thing I noticed was how small this place is. I can't imagine more then 20-25 people in this place. After checking out the on-tap list I was confused since I knew very little about any of them. The bottle selection was awesome but I could buy these bottles a couple miles away a lot cheaper. My non-beer freak friend paid $8 for an ok stout that was only 8oz. Kinda disappointed overall, for hardcore beer lovers only. Wish they had more taps. Street parking only.

This is a small bar with tons of big beers and great service. A few tables (one that is on fire), and a decent sized bar for sitting. Outside has a few chairs to enjoy a smoke and beer. The bar staff are usually pretty good. Lots of other great bottles, and not too crowded compared with some of the other places in the area. Overall a good place to go if you are in the area. Prices are very fair too, most not too much more then what you would see in a bottle shop. Most taps are available in growler form and bottles can be taken to go.

This place wasn't around when I lived in Seattle, so I was glad to be able to check it out on a recent trip. Let me say that I thought it was well worth the visit but I wasn't blown away like a lot of reviewers seem to be. One of the thngs I always loved about Seattle was the great pub culture- this means not just great tap handles and clean lines but a cozy place to drink a pint with knowledgable servers (or least pourers), and usually better than average food as well as a neighborhood feel. This place has the great taps and the clean lines, but not a whole lot of the other stuff. The place is basically a tiny storefront with a small bar in it a sofa or two and a few tables. That's it. It's tiny. What's there is fairly nicely appointed, but rather sterile. I don't feel cozy here- particularly on a cold, windy, rainy Seattle day. The service is fine, quasi-informed, and relatively into it but doesn't strike me as passionate about beer as the servers at some other great beer bars. They are friendly, though. No food at all, and somewhat limited options in the immediate vicinity, but they will let you bring food in. They had 20 or so taps and a whole bunch of botttles in the cooler behind the bar. Some nice bottles, and some nice taps, but I can't say I was amazed by the selection. It was well chosen, had some nice local stuff on, but nothing super rare or tremendously special. I had a New Old Lompoc LSD (definitely the happiest find on tap) and a Curieaux. I hadn't had the New Old Lompoc before, but had had pretty much everything else they had, including the bottles- except for a couple Belgians in bottles that I could get for less in the liquor store. Nice, but not my favorite place. Would I go again? Sure, if I checked their tap list online and found something interesting, or if I lived nearby. I'd hit it up as an out-of-towner if I hadn't been before or if something really good was on as well. So, I'll probably be back and then on to other Seattle spots like Brouwer's cafe, Bevridge Place, and Elysian.

Visited on December 27th on a Seattle area holiday pub crawl. This place is quite small, but you get a great welcoming vibe when you enter that immediately puts you into your comfort zone. The seventeen taps were nicely selected with a focus on local and PNW beers. Selections are numbered to match the pool ball tap handles! Bartender was very helpful in making recomendations. Crowd was very friendly compared to the typical Northwest standoffishness and we throroughly enjoyed our visit. I'll make a point of coming back here the next time I'm in town.

This place is small and cozy with lots of beer-centric decor covering the walls. Clean and welcoming, the bartender was friendly but she was overworked this night so there wasn't much beer discussion going on. The crowd at first consisted of small groups quietly chatting but as the night went on the frat-guy crowd started showing up to take advantage of the 2-liter beer boots that are available. The other odd thing is that the bathroom is where everyone will see you go in and notice when you come out since it sticks out into the table area, may be awkward for some. Beer selection was great, lots of bottles and a few high quality beers on tap, I had victory storm king on draft for the first time. Cool place, I shall return.
