Visited in October of 2012. We decided to visit this place while we were being touristy in the Pike Place Market. I was with my wife and in-laws, so we just dropped in to have a beer while the women were shopping nearby. I wish I would have had time to do a tour, but the last one had already gone for the day. My first impression was that this place was new and shiny and somewhat over-the-top. My last impression held up. It was extremely crowded (3pm on a weekend), but we found a table eventually. There were servers we thought, but they were more interested in clearing tables, so we went to the bar to get beers. My father in law had a Scotch Ale and I got an IPA and we both, being perveyors of those styles, thought they were good, but not mind blowing. There were several special taps available, so the selection was there. We didn't stay long, but it wasn't really the kind of place you want to stay at. It was more like a busy, trendy bar than a brew pub. Overall, it just wasnt for me.

Ok place. Beer is not the best but great when you're at Pike Place Market.

This place is near and dear to me. I first visited in 1997, when craft breweries were popping up all over the Pacific Northwest. The combination of funky location, great food and interesting beer had me hooked immediately. Each of my return visits have been equally favorable. They make great burgers, but my absolute favorites are the Penn Cove Mussels or the fish and chips. For me, no visit to Seattle is complete without a stop by the Pike Pub & Brewery.

I stopped into this place merely because I walked by it. It seemed to be somewhat of a tourist trap. It was mid afternoon and pretty busy. I walked up to the bar and ordered a sampler. My buddy and I walked into the adjoining room and plopped down away from the crowd. The room we entered had tables and booths but also casual living room style seating.

The beers were average, but the place was amazing. There was breweriana everywhere from tap handles to bottle openers, from old beer cans to postcards, etc. It was basically a beer museum which I found awesome once I got settled in. I wandered the place checking out the various displays while drinking my samples. All of the sudden, the average samples seemed well paired with the surrounding museum atmosphere.

I did manage to have a good beer, albeit a guest tap. The crowning jewel of my experience was finding a postcard of a pre-prohibition brewery from my hometown, Dostal Bros. Brewing. The sentimentality of that experience elevated Pike Brewing for me.

I look at the place as a beer museum that brews its own beer. It is a very cool place to check out based on the breweriana. The beer isn't awful. I had a memorable time. It is a cool place to check out.
