Were it not for BA, I'm sure I would never have visited this place. It's off the beaten track and is easy to drive right by if you're not looking for it.

Located in West Seattle, from the outside BPP really does not look like much. From the outside it's not much more then a hole in the wall... but on the inside....

At least IMO, the ambiance of BPP reflects the mindset and expectations of the NW. This place exudes comfort and charm in a very laid back and relaxed environment. There are several couches in the middle of the bar room, several tables and chairs, a table with pitchers of water and plastic cups where customers can help themselves, and all manner of various board games. The entire vibe is "home away from home," with more the feel of a large living room then a beer bar.

So, as you walk in the front door there is a large bar running down the left side with around 10 seats. There is an immense, handsome wooden mirror over the back bar, and this place has high ceilings, giving it something of a light and airy feel. I was there on a Friday afternoon (the place opens at 3:00 on Friday), at a time when there weren't a lot of patrons. However, the folks that were there were mostly regulars (they were on a first name basis with the bartender), and everyone seemed relaxed, laid back and friendly.

As for the draft list, I think it was somewhere between 15 and 18, and had nothing but NW selections on the list. Other then the Anacortes barleywine there was nothing really unusual or outstanding, but the draft selection was solid enough. Prices were reasonable and the waitress was friendly, quick and attentive. BPP does not have a kitchen, but you can order "take-in" from any of the local restaurants, or you can just bring something from home. Otherwise, they have some nuts and other finger food snacks available.

In the back there is another large room with TV's and pool tables. It was empty the afternoon I was there, but I can imagine it gets pretty crowded on weekends and evenings.

This is a very solid place, but it's the relaxed, low key atmosphere coupled with a solid beer selection (they also have a very nice selection of Belgian bottled beer) that would have me making this place my local beer bar if I lived anywhere close by.

What else can I say? I'll certainly be back.

Great place to get a beer at night. A cool atmosphere. You can chill on the couches with the old lamps or sit at the bar. Good selection, huge amount of local taps. almost like an old library or old English pub look to it.

Actually they do have food here, sorry. I only come here on vacation and I don't know the hours or menu of the kitchen.

I stopped in at Beveridge Place Pub last weekend and I really like the place. It is exactly what I want in a pub -- welcoming and warm, with a living-room-type environment, couches and books and comfy chairs everywhere. The beer list ain't half bad either, with maybe thirty taps and a good selection of beer among them (plus some ciders). This is a great place with a wonderful atmosphere that I will definitely be returning to; I just wish it were a little bit closer to my home.

I finally made my first visit to this bar that I've heard so much about, for so long. The first room you enter has the bar along the back wall, with seating between the door and the bar. A lot of of the seating is in the form of couches, which I'm not a fan of, too coffee-shopish. There is a stand up bar to drink at however.

There is a nice, wide selection of rotating taps behind the bar, and you will have no trouble finding several tasty options to scratch whatever beer itch you have. Once you have a lovely beveridge, turn to the right, and enter the second room, which has more a traditional pub feel to it. Beyond that is a small outdoor patio, which I suspect fills up quickly on nice days.

They don't serve food at BPP, but they do have a three ring binder full of menus from neighborhood restaurants, and you'll surely find something to go with your brew. The bartenders are quick, efficient, and friendly. The day we visited they were having one of their occasional "Iron Brewer" showdowns. A pair of breweries is given a couple of secret ingredients that they have to use in a brew. There are three pairs facing off against each other. You buy a six sample flight, and are given ballots. You choose your favorite from each pair, then the votes are tallied up, and the 3 winners are invited back to defend their crowns next time. Pretty fun!

The prices were pretty typical for a big city bar, with pints generally in the $4-6 range. Overall, a great bar, and a must hit when you visit Seattle.

Love the selection, the staff and the ability to enjoy a beer and "work" away from the office on a weekday afternoon. The only reason, I don't give it perfect 5's all around is the fact that they are pet friendly. Sorry, I'm just not a pet (dog, cats) person. I get it's West Seattle and everyone has a dog so I live it with in order to have great beer, wi-fi and close to work. Everyone I know loves this place and it's obvious why after you go for beer.

Pretty solid place. Plays the soccer matches, has some neat games to play. Service is fantastic, selection is solid. Lots of cool events from time to time, and great connections with a lot of local brewers. No food, but you can order out. Get some rare/vintage stuff in from time to time. Wish I could make it out more often.

Nice selection. Kind staff. Great outdoor seating. Billiards, TV's, games, opportunities for entertainment. Fun nearby walking. Request hoppiest beer and got Maisels, whatevs, enjoyed it. Delivery of food quite common. Soda overpriced, duh. Neat location with little competition. Bus nearby. Video game store as well.
