Right across the street from Safeco Field Qwest Fields. The whole neighborhood was dead but this was surprisingly lively even though there were no cars in the parking lot. Maybe it's right off a bus line, or something.

First off, *every* pint was 5.50, from their most basic staple of a beer (Apricot) to their rares and one-offs (they had 2-year-old Snow Cap). I thought this was cool. I've never realize it before, but I really don't like it when I go up to buy a round at a beer bar and have no idea what I'm paying.

Everything else is sort of mixed. The beers range from okay to damn good but there's nothing spectacular. Pyramid's trying out some more adventurous one-off beers, to adjust to the changing tastes of your modern fancy beer drinkers (who display their supposed erudition by mindlessly demanding hop bombs). These were pretty well done, but their wheelhouse it still easy drinking sessions.

There's lots and lots of yuppies--so many it's shocking, even for someone who was prepared for a yuppie onslaught. George Will was eating at the table across from us. Seriously. And that's all you need to know about the vibe of this place.

But--thats unfair. Just because this place isn't my thing, culturally, doesn't mean it's poorly done. Because it's actually pretty well done. It's a new building that's made to look like an old, bricky warehouse, it's got the warmly ersatz lighting of an Ikea setpiece, and the music playing is the kind of stuff that absolutely will not offend anyone.

The bartender was prick but the crowd was okay. There were about a dozen beers on tap with a good selection of take homes.
