A - Th atmosphere is nice, still a little on the small size even with the recent expansion. Usually feels crowded and often hard to find a place to sit. Guess that just speaks to the quality of their beers.

Q - I love the beers these guys make!! In my book, they are neck and neck with Walking Man and Boundary Bay for the best brewery in the state...really, they are that good! I think their Trickster IPA is the best in Washington and would compare favorably to any I've had from across the country. The Wisdom Seeker is out of the world when it comes on and the Old Birdbrain is an excellent barleywine. While those three top the list, the others beers I've had there have been solid as well. Looking forward to trying their Imperial stout and some of the lbottles being released in the near future.

S - I've always had great service here...no diva bar maids who don't have time to serve you a beer. And they've always been at least somewhat knowledgeable about the beer they are serving. I've talked to the brewmaster (Beau) a couple of times and he is always friendly and willing to talk shop; he even gave me tour of the brewery once. Good people all around!

S - I believe they have 9-10 taps. 5-6 of their own and 3-4 gust taps. Seemed to have a good selection across a range of styles.

F - Pretzels, nuts, order in or bring your own. But I don't really care--I go to drink, food can be had elsewhere.

V - Seemed OK. Pint and growler prices seemed about average for what you can expect to pay these days.

Overall--At the top of my list for WA. breweries...I'd be a happy mane if the other breweries around here made beers that were half as good!

Some of the best beer you'll ever try but the wait and service is their weakest part! I don't care for the wait staff but the beer makes it worth it. Beaux Bowman is a genius brewer who found the right occupation, I hope he can get his staff on the same level as his product.
