Finally got a chance to visit this place as it represents a nice part of Seattle brewing history. The place is pretty big with the brewery in full operation right next door open to the public and not behind glass. You could smell the boiling wort and the smell from the spent grain as the guys worked the bottling line next to the mash tun. The outside patio is nice when the weather is good and the selection of beers is for every palate from the novice beer drinker to the BA. I noticed a few seasonals including some bigger beers like the Double IPA, a barleywine and an imperial stout. A few beers also were on nitro as well such as the Cream Ale.

Food was good and fresh with even the Hummus, Baba Ganoush and Tapenade tasting like it was made in house. The best way to order beers is in schooners giving you the chance to try a nice array. I mixed the Double Mongoose IPA with the Troll Porter to create a kind of Dark IPA with great results.

The waiter was casual and well informed and the service was efficient. Prices were reasonable and there is lots of parking close by.

Large place, several seating options. More of a restaurant than a brewery feel. Food is good, they always have some intriguing beers, and its a cool vibe.

I've been to Hale's numerous times over the years, but most recently spent the playoffs getting brunch and pre-funking here. Go Hawks!

I really like the atmosphere of the bar area; dark wood, a clean environment that is somehow also a little bit too-close and dank, and a couple of TVs but without that sports-bar vibe. Service has been quite good, with knowledgeable and friendly staff who know their beer and are up for a chat. They have at least a dozen taps with one beer on cask at all times and at least another on nitro; there's usually something I want there.

I'm not a huge fan of all of Hale's beers, but there are always a couple in there range that I enjoy and can get. The smoked porter I had with my eggs and biscuits paired really well; I'll definitely be back for this combo. Overall, I really like the place.
