We stopped at The Noble Fir on Ballard and the server there told us about the Sixgill, a new-ish beer bar on the hip Fremont area by the same owners as Noble. Off we go!
The Sixgill was pretty packed on a Friday night but we still managed to grab some seats at a high-top wooden table by the entrance. The ambience is similar to The Noble Fir, all that wood and shelves and books and casual-cool class. Here they have maps to browse, though. MAPS! Giant maps to die for. This alone makes it my favorite bar ever :-)
A ton of beers on draft, including some locals/regionals like Engine House, Breakside, Fremont, Ninkasi and Rogue, but the attraction here is the rarer stuff from "cult" breweries ("hipster beer list", as one Yelp reviewer put it). Witness Evil Twin Lil'B, Cowboy Smoked, Naked Lunch and Hop Flood, and six (SIX!) Mikkeller, including Brunch Weasel, Bacon Beer Geek, Til Via Fra and Spontanpeach.
They also have good ciders on tap, which is a rarity. The bottle selection is small but rather nice: Sucaba, Even More Jesus, Boulevard Saison Brett and other sours and wild ales. Don't miss the spirits menu if you like good things like mezcal and amaro.
A total class act. No wonder The Sixgill was voted one of the best bars in America by Esquire in the short period since its opening. Seattle is lucky to have this joint.
