Like everyone else has said, it's a great building, great room, wonderful beer selection ... now here's the but ... but the service was not very good. Our bartender was pleasant but he was acting like he really didn't want to serve people. He wasn't mean or nasty just as bare-bones polite as he needed to be. And I expect more from a bartender.
I'd go back to give the service one more try because of all the positive stuff about the place and reviewers saying good things but if I'm hoping for a little interest from the bartender next time.

Great selection, awesome architecture, wild history, decent service, limited seating, happy regulars, chill location, interesting conversation. Go during off hours if you want proper review, high times bring out unwanteds. Men's restroom can urinal view shows great peak at dining hall.

This place is very Brouwer's-esk. They have a fantastic taplist, and get some really cool kegs on occasion. It gets busy at times, so service is usually good but sometimes a bit slow. Haven't had the food yet, and prices are pretty standard. Very well done and a great addition to Capitol Hill.

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.
