Disclaimer: I just left Ed's Kourt Haus before visiting and stuffed myself with a Camel burger, a Kangaroo burger, and a double order of poutine so I was not in a chugging mood. Earlier at Naked City the owner said to visit this place. I could tell it was new, not by the beer but the facility looked new... basically a tap room in a modern garage. The beer though was not of the quality I would expect to find commonly from a new brewery... it was much much better. All the beers were good but I had to buy a bottle of their Rye. Needless to say I was impressed. Thank you Reuben, thank you Naked City, and ... well thank you Ed's Kourt Haus... just not so much.

Reuben's is a busy joint with a bartender who can handle his shit. We arrived right when they opened at 3:00 on a Wednesday and tried 11 different tasters. They were all good. Reuben's has been highly praised and now I see why. The vibe is cool; people sat at tables, inside and out, while others came in for growler fills. I could've stayed here all afternoon. Free pretzels with water on the side. The Ballard neighborhood is ripe with breweries and Reuben's holds the high point. Sit, sip and enjoy.

Nice place to hang and drink some beers. Found a few I beers I liked although I didn't fall in love with any one beer here. Service was friendly and sample requests were accommodated. I could see myself coming here from time to time as a change of pace.

Very cool place I got to check out on my recent trip.

Pretty crowded and lively on a Saturday afternoon. You are basically hanging out in the brewery, but it's a pretty nice space.

Quality is quite good. I was very impressed with most of the beers I tried on the sampler. Especially the Porter and the Rye. Selection is good too, about 12+ beers with good variety of style. Mostly just ales though.

Service was very good, the guys working up front were courteous and speedy even though the place was jammed full of people.

Great place, would recommend to anyone.

I love Reuben's Brews. Incredible beers and very good service. Not much more you can ask for. There is plenty of seating though on a sunny weekend day it can get really crowded. Love all the beers, but especially the Porter and Stout

Visited the old place, couple months before the move and I can see why they need to move. Busy and popular they need the extra space. Still nice people though.
