This place is for any beer geek and I am happy to say I visited this place three times over my trip. If you are from the East Coast like myself, the ability to choose from a plethora of Pacific Northwest beers is the best thing about this place.

When entering you walk down a big flight of curved stairs and the first thing you see is the large bar and 160 tap handles sticking out from the back wall. Very neat and well architected. The room had a dark and cool vibe to it with several booths and tables. There were some seperate rooms that could handle private parties. The other cool thing was the music - everything from Rush's 2112 to Talking Heads to Kiss. Not very often do you hear some unique classic rock in a restaurant. There were 4 pool tables of in another room too.

The beer menu is broken down by style which is nice. There were 7 rotating special offerings to keep some variety there for the locals. There was a nice mix of local micros to a big Belgian selection. The only bad news was the price of the beer - anywhere from $5.50 and up for pint, and if you wanted to do the four 6 oz samplers you would drop $9.50 or more. Most beers were fresh and only one seemed a bit old to me, but still quite drinkable.

The food was good but not great. They do have a Sushi happy hour starting at 3:30 where rolls are only $2.95.

This place is located in a great area of downtown business area and just a short walk to the Capital Hill area. If your time is short and you would like to try some of the smaller known local breweries, this is place to come to. But be forwarned it is a bit pricey as my bar tabs were the highest here versus any other stops in town.

Just happened to stumble across this place on my last trip to Seattle. This space used to house the Planet Hollywood, or so was the rumor. It's a huge place, with stairs that lead you below ground level to a cavernous sized bar/lounge area. The bar area is very modern looking, with all 160+ taps on display behind the bartenders. There is a variety of seating options, from the bar, to stand-up tables, to seats for food, to a lounge area with big couches. Service was good, we were greeted right as we got to the bar. Selection was great. They had a lot of American beers, with a big section of Belgian, German, and other Euro beers thrown in. I just wish they focused a bit more on their Washington selection. I ended up getting a Alaskan Oatmeal Stout. It was good, but I thought that $5.75 a pint was a bit steep. All the prices here seemed a bit high. It is located right downtown, so maybe that's the rationale. I enjoyed my visit, but I had to cut it short, because I could just imagine the bar tab in this place would creep up pretty quickly.
