A pizza restaurant primarily, but gotta love Seattle beer culture... Only another neighborhood restaurant joint that, yeah, just happens to carry a slew of fine taps, mostly devoted to regional suds.

They carry approx. 15 sometimes rotating taps. On my last stop in (11/05) they offered Fishtale organic amber, Hales pale, Mac'nJack, Maritime Nightwatch, Boundary Bay (rotating), Sierra Celebration, Fat Tire amber, Rat City IPA, Anchor porter, PBR, Guinness, Black Thorn cider, Redhook ESB and Widmer Hefe and were out of their special tap.

Located on E. Pine street (after going up the hill from downtown and before Broadway), the E. Pine side just has the establishment sign while the cross-street side has glass panes and a number of neon beer lights that first gleaned my attention back in '96. Indeed, I was gathering a strong thirst for beer while looking for parking heading to Elysian that I decided to stop in Bill's first (hey, it's got my name) and had my first draft Fat Tire ever. Sat at the bar and lingered for another couple hours before moving on. Ever since, I make a traditional stop inside.

The atmosphere in the dining area is pretty laid back (duh), with an interesting clientele mix at the bar being served mainly by young free-spirited gals and guys all in varying assortments of dress and accompaniments. Service at the bar has always been prima for me. I take notice when bar tenders take notice that my beer is a sip away from not, and actually check in to see if I'd like something more.

I might not recommend here as its own destination, but when visiting Elysian or one or more of the other local day/night spots, it's worthy a visit for beer (or a tasty, pretty cheap two-topping personal pizza. Note: they also serve limited items other than pizza, and a medium and large pizza - the large may at first seem pricy, but the thing does weigh a lot!).
