Seattle recommendation needed

    I am going to be in Seattle for just one night (Tuesday). I will be staying at the Marriott Waterfront. Are there any worthwhile breweries or beer bars within walking distance? Looks like Pike Pub & Brewery may be the closest.

    Not much within walking distance of downtown compared to the neighborhoods. Pike, Elysian Fields and Collins Pub for sure.

    If you're feeling adventurous, walk up Capitol Hill to The Pine Box, or find a way to Fremont Brewing and get yourself some B-Bomb before hitting up Brouwers.

    Yes, find a way to Fremont Brewing. B-bomb comes out tomorrow, you won't regret it.

    I have been there and this is a good recommendation. Great taplist and wonderful pizza and Caesar salad.

    Bambinos looks pretty cool. Haven't been there yet though.

    If you can do a quick cab ride, I'd also suggest Pine Box. They have a really great taplist and the food is pretty good. If trying to walk it, getting there would pretty much be all up hill. Cab ride would probably be less than $10.

  7. Echoing recommendations for Pine Box. They have the tap list online, so you can check before you go. Elysian's also reasonably close.

    If the OP really wants/needs to walk, then let me just be clear that Pine Box and Elysian Capitol Hill are a haul from the Marriott Waterfront and all uphill.
  9. Pine Box isn't too bad of a walk from downtown. A little over a mile, and not a terrible hill. Elysian Fields is closer than the Capitol Hill Elysian. "Within walking distance" is relative though.

    Get to Fremont for b-bomb and you can even grab a bottle or 2.

    Made it to Seattle. Thanks for the advice guys. Given the shortness of time and what will probably be an extended dinner at Metropolitan Grill, I think I will probably just stop by Pike Brewery.

    If you are eating at the Met, definitely walk about 3 blocks to Collins Pub!! Way better option IMO

    +1. Listen to the man. Pike is just meh. Collins Pub is fantastic.

    No question, Collins all day over Pike. If I didn't have to get home, I'd meet you there, I walk by every day.

    4th'd (sp?) on Collins Pub over Pike. Not sure why I didn't think of that earlier.
  16. Am I the only one who is bugged by Collins? Although, I'd take it over Pike any day.

    I could see that. I've had my ire up at each of his places --- Collins, Hudson, and Mutiny Hall (especially the latter --- the effing music always seems to be too loud).
