The main entrance is through the brewery and the first thing you'll see is the mash tun, brewkettle and fermentors. The entrance to the bar is through a door to the left and there's a dining room with a glass wall looking into the brewery. But the brewhouse and the pub are basically kept seperate. There's also a smallish patio off the main dining room. A few style points for the couches in the main room.

Hale's beers do a perfectly good job of pleasing the masses. I find them solid and drinkable but never awe-inspiring. I feel kind of the same way about the food. The pulled pork sandwich is really good, but any number of Bar-b-que spots in Seattle do it better. The burgers, same thing. Good but if I'm craving a great burger, I won't think of them.

I don't want to sound negative because I think the place is fine. But so are lots of brewpubs around the country.

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.
