The vibe of this place is neighborhood pub, and it's authentically that, not faked. Pleasant booths and decor. The service is friendly and competent.

The food was quite good ... soups and sandwiches. My Reuben had excellent corned beef, although it skimped on the quantity of meat.

The beer list is surprisingly short (around 8 or 10 taps), but they are well chosen. They offer 8 oz schooners as well as pints.

In short, this is a good place to know about. In Seattle, there are many beer centric pubs and restaurants with much better taplists. But this place still is just fine. I'd happily come back.

Very attractive old-school tavern. The big bar makes a quarter circle with tables and booths tucked in the rest of the narrow space. A couple more on the sidewalk. Attractive neighborhood if you're out walking.

Well chosen list of beers, though a small selection but contemporary standards. All but one were from Seattle, so a good place to try local stuff. Not too noisy with music. Waitress was friendly but had disappeared when we wanted to pay and leave. But a pleasant place worth the stop. It was cool and shady on the hot afternoon we stopped by.

I visited the Hopvine Pub the other day and really enjoyed it. The place has a really good, neighborbood pub kind of feel, but offers some really good beers. The selection is relatively small, with maybe a dozen taps, but the beers on offer were quite good. Service was good; there was only one guy working the bar when I arrived but he managed to provide table service as well and seemed to keep everyone happy. If I'm back up on that part of the hill again, I'd like to stop in and see what other interesting stuff they've got on tap.

A-Lots of wood (booths, chairs, bar, back bar, floor) gives this place a warm feel, bar is custom fit for the space, people are from the neighborhood, relaxed in afternoon, can get packed at night

Q-food is fresh, beer is fresh, nothing sits

S-Attentive staff, informative, work well as a team

S-heavy on regional micros (American, Maritime, 3 Skulls, Rogue) but other regions get repped, too (Port, Boulevard, Victory)

F-The kitchen is tiny, but the manager /chef is awesome. The food is made fresh, the dishes creative. Garlic soup, vegan burrito, pizzas, salads, boar.

V-$4.50 to $6/pint, smaller pours available, easily do lunch and 2 pints for $25

A: Pretty good, relaxed place. Plenty of seating, not swarmed, good vibe. Dimly lit, nice barm good wooden booths to stretch out on

Q: All of the beer here was pretty damn good. My beer tasted fresh and had no issues at all. No complaints here.

S: My server was nice, prompt and welcoming. Did not take long at all to get my beers no no complaints here.

S: Selection was good. The only thing that I find consistent in most Seattle beer bars is the lack of Strong Ales especially in the season we are in.

This is a really cool neighborhood pub. Really liked the atmosphere. We felt very comfortable. We ended up coming here a couple of times while we were on vacation. It happened to be close to where we were staying and it didn't hurt that they had a good variety of beer and great service. The bartender was very friendly. Sat and talked with us, was able to recommend local beers. Even gave us directions to Bruce Lee's grave. She was great. She also remembered us the following night. I highly recommend this place.

I stopped into the Hopvine while in Seattle on business.

Hopvine is a nice, little neighborhood pub. The decor is pretty simple and basic with some art and beer bottles on display. They have 11 beers on tap which focus on local craft beer. I had a Boundary Bay IPA which was quite good. They have a small stage for an open mike kind of thing but fortunately I stopped in during a quiet part of the day.

I think I'd enjoy stopping into the Hopvine if I lived in the area but it's not something to travel for.

My favorite pub in Seattle, in a great neighborhood on 15th--excellent soups, local rotating beers on tap, and live music a few times a week...couldn't ask for much more! I really miss it in Boston, and haven't found anything similar for the laid-back Northwest atmosphere, and the combination of food and beer that is low-key but really well-done. The soups are famous enough to have their own cookbook, and rotate seasonally, as do the beers, highlighting the best of Seattle and NW microbreweries.
