Capitol Hill is cooler-than-thou, but not in a Brooklyn-hipster kind of way. Way more relaxed and attitude-free. We all had dinner at Sitka & Spruce and, bam, there it is. The Pine Box right across the street. At first I thought it was an old bank, but it turns out it used to house a funeral home. Later on, I learned that Bruce Lee was buried in this very spot! I think he’d be proud of the fine beer now served here.

About 35 taps, mostly Northwest and West Coast: 10 Barrel, Almanac, Big Time, Black Diamond Peak XV, Highwater Hop Logic, De Dolle, Mad River Serious Madness, Midnight Sun Monk’s Mistress, Oakshine, Sniprd, Tieton… short-but-sweet selection of bottles as well, including Cascade sours, Firestone 17th, Parabola and Sucaba (at $21-$24, not bad at all).

I had some food to go with all the beer and was not disappointed. Porcini-and-smoked-salt popcorn plus baby kale and arugula salad with walnut and chevre. Service is efficient and prices are maybe a tad high but not terrible: around $8 for 12 ounces of the better brews. Easily the best, coolest bar in Seattle.

My wife and I hunkered down at the bar a sunny Sunday early afternoon. The bartender was very friendly and helpful. The beer selection was very good and included some hard to find ones. We didn't order food, but it seemed like your standard bar type food.

Good place here, definitely worth checking out whenever near the area.
