This is a very fine brewpub. I stopped by while visiting a buddy in Seattle after we toured around the Boeing plant in Everett. It is a pretty small bar and restaurant area, but the atmosphere seemed very "Pacific Northwest" as it was it in what seemed to be a log cabin-like structure.

They had about 6 or 7 ales on tap and also had their brown ale on cask. The waiter was excited when I asked about what was on cask. He told me that the beer had been casked in July and had just been taken out to serve in the beginning of February, and brought me a sample to see if I wanted a full glass. It was good and I did have a pint. I also tried the Industrial IPA (a very good double IPA but not quite as good as Dreadnaught). From the menu, it looked like they bring out a new cask every week. I was disappointed to see that I would miss the cask of the Industrial IPA.

The food was good. I ordered a mahi tuna sandwich, which they served rare on what they call a Stonegrill. It's a really hot rock that can cook your food to whatever level of cookedness that you prefer. The serving size was a little small for the price.

If I ever work for Boeing in Everett, I would probably go to this place on a weekly basis. It is a great little brewpub that makes some really good beers.

Edit: I did end up working in Everett, and I have been here several more times. The food is simply not that good here, and on repeated visits the service has been friendly but not as prompt as it was the first time. My main beef with the food is that they only serve their sandwiches on hoagie rolls. The hoagie roll is not a bread type that can be applied to every sandwich on the menu (exhibit a - the reuben). Really, all they are doing is heating up a stone, sticking cold cuts on it, and putting a hoagie roll next to it. Why then does it always seem to take so long to get served here? To end on a positive note, the more I've been here, the more I've come to be moderately addicted to their IPA. The beer really is good enough here to overlook the sometimes mediocre food.

I visited this place on Saturday. The waitress in the bar was very knowledgeable and did a great job taking care of us since we kept ordering samplers and held off for food until later. When we ordered food, we just got an appetizer, since we weren't too hungry. They had huge selection of different appetizers/bar food. The food was fantastic! Now back to the beer, out of the 8 samples we had there was only 1 I wouldn't order again. However they honestly had one of the best stouts IMHO. After we paid our ticket the manager came over and talked to us for a bit. Overall the staff was really friendly and attentive. Definitely gonna come back when I am in the area!

The place has great food that is reasonably priced. They don't offer beer flights but they do 2oz samples for $3. Not many beers were available when I went. Service is very good. I would go back again for sure.

It is located about 20 minutes north of downtown Seattle. They have outdoor seating and the men room urinal is a cut out old Budweiser keg.

This building is a run down, backwoods, fisherman's depot that happens to be an alehouse. Right by the ferry terminal in a rotting property that looks like the rough Pacific Northwest winters have taken their toll. Great dilapidated character.

As you enter, a long train station sort of building opens up. Peanut shells coat the floor and waiters are running from table to table with sizzling Rueben's and other bar food concoctions. The place is smokey from the bar food and reeks of sauerkraut and roasted meats. Kind of a midwestern, deerhunter dive bar sort of vibe. One old, brick wall extends the length of the building, and overall there's a rustic, homey feel.

Diner stools, makeshift wooden and tile tables line the place. Drinks were served very sloppily, each glass wet to the touch and dripping with beer foam down the sides. Slightly annoying, but the lack of attention was sort of humbling. On our taster trays there were virtually no even pours and every time you reached for a sip, beer dripped all over you. By the end of our experience our table was covered in beer circle rings and excess beer. Very laughable. Nice variance in the beer selection, with consistency in the "Diamond Knot" flavor. Overall, nothing mind blowingly special about the brews.

Our waiter treated us as we knew nothing about beer and explained each variety offered with great detail. A bit annoying, but showed a sense of care. In general, service was looming and aggressive, almost sitting at our table waiting for us to finish our tasters to order pints. Weird pricing for tasters, half pots (half imperial pints) or pint pots (imperial pints) to make for an evenness after tax. All beers served in big mugs.

Overall, a very local bar type experience. Didn't eat, but from what I saw pretty hearty portions served on a sizzling slabs of granite and pieces of wood. Kind of like camping. I really should have hated this place, and I really wanted to, but the dilapidated lack of care created a cozy charm that just made me laugh. I felt good drinking beer here and I have no clue why. Still was great though. It's really a terrible place that offers semi-moderately tasty beer.
