I really enjoyed my time at Big Time -- and I spent a LOT of time there this past week.

The atmosphere is great. Nice big wooden tables, plenty of good-natured people, a lack of smoky pollution, restraint on the cheesy "pub" decorations, and really great beer made it our favourite spot for nerdly discussion.

The beer and food were both excellent. During my stay, I tried every single beer they had on tap, and I enjoyed every single one. The food was tasty, simple, and affordable for poor grad students like us. Daily specials and frequent-flyer deals were appreciated as well.

I'll definitely be back any time I'm visiting the University of Washington.

Prices are OK. Food is fine (not great, not bad). Beer is good to quite good. Service...there isn't service. They have a counter you can walk to for food orders, and you can walk to the bar for drinks. Which is fine.

We tried every beer they had on tap; several solid IPAs and their nice wheatwine, as well as a couple pales and a porter. I don't make it here often just because it's off my beaten path.

The best feature of this place is that they specialize in IPA's. They currently have a whopping five of them online, including a cask version of the Scarlet Fire, which I am enjoying as I post this. Speaking of the Scarlet Fire, it purveys sharp floral bitterness, an excellent take on the West Coast IPA. I pick up grassy notes and somewhat of a lemony finish. I would highly recommend this place, but be sure to eat lunch or dinner before arriving. Its a quasi college bar (adjacent to the U of W campus), and their menu consists of....pizza, pizza, and oh, some pizza.
