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.

Stopped in at Reuben's today for a sampler tray and to really drink in the atmosphere. My last visit, I was part of a roving saloon cycle and didn't really get a chance to develop an informed opinion of the place.

I really like Reuben's. The tasting room is actually the brewery; mash tuns and other equipment are moved to the side so tables can be brought out. Behind the service window where beers are poured, there is a big pegboard filled with metal clamps, plastic hose and other brewing accoutrements. You really know you're in a brewery here. There are only a handful of tables, and they are small, so it would be hard to visit here with a big group. But when the weather is nice, they open up an outside drinking area which is quite pleasant.

And the beer -- the beer is very good. Reuben's is doing some great things with rye, as well as brewing classic styles very well. I will definitely be heading back the next time I'm looking to wet my whistle in Ballard.

Reuben's is one of my favorite breweries in the Seattle/Ballard area. Sitting in an industrial garage, you're ordering and drinking right in the middle of the brewery itself. Not a whole lot of space in the fall and winter, as the garage is closed up and porch seating is not available. Typically when I visit, I get my beer to go. However, the staff is very friendly and the head brewer/owner is always there, which is nice to see in a local craft brewery. But, there is only one person taking orders at one time, so if there's a line, it can take several minutes inside this small brewery to get your drink. The selection is outstanding! At least 12 in-house beers available, rotating throughout the year, all of which I would consider to be good to great beers. You can't really go wrong with whatever you pick. They also keep a nitro tap going and have quite a few rye style beers as well.

Overall, if you're in the area and love beer, you need to stop and have a drink.

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.

Awesome new(ish) brewery in Seattle. I was fortunate enough to make it out there before I moved and happened to stop by on their anniversary. I love rye (beer, bread, and whiskey), so I loved everything I tasted. I look forward to stopping by next time I am in town.

Since I visited on an event day I don't know that I got the typical experience, but parking was easy to find and the beer was fantastic. Definitely on par with some of the more established Seattle micro breweries.
