Definitely the best place to get a brew in Sammamish and maybe further afield too. It's nothing too fancy but they have a great chalk board above the bar and there is always something new to try which is great. It's even had some rather unique beers come through there too. Lots of local brews, not just the american standard beers you see.

I would guess they normally have around 5-7 interesting beers on the board, IPA type beers etc. The price is pretty much what you expect around WA / Seattle.

The food isn't the best but they do have a couple of dishes that are not bad. I enjoyed their Spicy Chicken sandwich it actually has a kick which is nice when drinking some of these beers.

This is the best place to drink beer in Sammamish. The staff is very friendly and the food is great for pub food. The bar features about 20 taps, most of which feature beers from Washington.

In addition to Washington beers from breweries, such as Mac & Jacks, Black Raven, Elysian, Georgetown Brewing, and Snoqualmie, they also have beer on tap from other west coast breweries. Beers from Deschutes, Sierra Nevada, and Stone are typically available. I've even seen Pliny the Elder there a few times.

The atmosphere is pleasant if you go later in the evening. There are many televisions showing Seattle sports games. Earlier there may be loud kids and families eating dinner. Unfortunately, the beers are a bit pricey (around $4.50-$5.50 per pint). They also close fairly early on weeknights and some weekends.

All and all it is a great place to sit, drink a local brew, and enjoy a Mariners or Seahawks game.

Across the parking lot from the Safeway in "downtown" Sammamish, next to a vet and the quiznos.

The inside is sort of dark with a medium sized bar area and a larger dining area with about 20 tables. The place was full of the typical Sammamish families enjoying dinner. Not exactly a nightlife hotspot.

Service was fine for me at the bar, but it looks like it could get really busy and I'm sure service might get a little slow..

I wasn't really expecting much out of the selection of this place, but was pleasantly surprised by the 18 taps, 16 which were micro related. A nice selection of winter seasonals including Celebration, Jubelale, Wasail and Avalanche. No redhook or pyramid which was surprising, but nice.

Not the most amazing place in the world but for the suburban hell that is Sammamish this is almost a utopia, and is within walking distance from where I live! I will visit again in the future.
