My friend's neighborhood joint - catering to local soccer hooligans in particular.

Booths, a bar, a pool table and seating...while they've expanded to 1600 square feet, it feels much smaller (though more cozy than cramped). Very dark, very relaxed, with what I imagine a typical Capitol Hill crowd to be like.

A good mix of local (Manny's, Elysian, Port Townsend, Maritime, etc) guest (Southern Tier), and import taps served in proper pints or tulips where desirable. Seasonals are often on special too.

Decent burritos though I didn't try their tacos. Decent service, though an odd mix of inattentive and overbearing (swooping down on my glass before I had finished my beer!)...though my friends said this was out of character as regulars are treated very well.

A great place to catch a game and have a decent pint and bite to eat if you are in the area - though Stumbling Monk is the more obvious local beer-nerd choice.

I liked the Summit upon my first visit there earlier this week. It's in a residential area on a darkened street corner; you might even walk right by it without noticing. Inside it is 100% dive bar, with pool and TVs and makeshift booths and crusty old dudes; I dig it.

There were 16 taps on offer, 2 of which were ciders, which is a pretty good selection for a dive bar. Most of the beer were locals, but some were from out of the region and they seemed pretty well selected aside from the inescapable Guinness and PBR.

Service was good up at the bar; the bartender seemed to know his stuff and had good taste in music, so that is always good. A little out of the way, but worth a stop if you like a good dive.

A: As soon as I walked in I thought..."local dive". Dark, wood booths, nice size bar area, just really laid back and cool

Q: All good to go here. No bad beer and the beers were quality

S: The service was very good, welcoming and helpful.

S: Another place with a well planned tap list. Everything from stouts, porters, IPAs, Pale and hef's plus more. Today I had a ST Choklat and almost got the Big Al Local Hero 9 Dubbel. They also had on Supergoose, and lots of other solid choices

F: Did not try any food, not sure if they had any. Next to Top Pot Doughnuts...bad bad bad!
