While there is a reasonable tap selection here, it shows how high the standard is for beer in the Northwest. A lineup that includes Deschutes Green Lakes Amber, Mannys Pale, Maritime Pacific Imperial IPA, Trumer Pils, Guinness and a few more whose names escape me at the moment, would be considered a great lineup a lot of places in the country. However in the PNW this is an average list you could find anywhere.

Conor does serve some tasty sandwiches, and has a great schedule of local, regional and national acts ( I recently saw North Carolina Singer-songwriter Jonathan Byrd here). Certainly worth a visit if you find yourself in, or near, Ballard which bills itself as, " A sleepy little drinking town with a condo problem."

Conor Byrne is a Seattle bar that's long on atmosphere and short on beer selection. Their imported taps focus on more mass produced beer and while their domestic taps are all regional craft brews, they don't rotate much and are seldom harder-to-find ales. The bar is one of Seattle's oldest continuously operating pubs going back to the 1800s and today is a fine looking Irish establishment with good live music and a great dark, properly lit, woody and bricky bar. There is usually a cover for music, so if you want to just drop in for a beer, you might try earlier in the evening. There is no food there. This is a place more for the atmosphere than the beer. Still, you should check it out and have a pint of a local craft brew.

The Conor Byrne Pub is in the heart of historic Ballard. The pub doesn't have a kitchen, but you come here for the great atmosphere and the decent beer selection. There are 15 draughts, including several PNW stables (e.g., Mack n Jacks, Weinhard's Hefeweizen), Guiness, Boddington's and Strongbow cider. Happy hour is 3-7 daily featuring $2.50 micro pints and $10.50 micro pitchers (import pints $3.00 and pitchers $11.50). There is live music Tuesday - Saturday (occassionally Sun/Mon), featuring a variety of Irish, folk, bluegrass, alternative country, blues and acoustic acts. Celtic night is Saturday.

There is plenty of seating inside, at the bar or at any number of tables. A great feature of Conor Byrne's is the large stage and quality sound system. The pub is attractive inside as well, featuring an elaborate bar and 14 ft. ceilings. Smoking is allowed, but the ventilation is good due in large part to the high ceilings. Overall, this is a great place to grab a pint or two and catch some live music.
