Clever name. The bar used to be a funeral home, hence, "The Pine Box." Fairly large selection of craft beers on tap. I like the staff, but I am biased because my brother and my sister-in-law work there. The architecture is old, which I think adds cool points to the vibe.

Housed in a pretty rad former chapel/funeral building in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, this pub has a pretty solid selection of Pacific Northwest Beers. I was pretty impressed with the quality and expedient service. Great place to drink pints!

The coolest bar catered more towards craft beer that I have ever been to. The building is a old funeral home. They atmosphere is amazing.

Having just got a new job down in Denny Triangle, I'm exploring some of the bars on the west side of Capitol Hill. My buddy and I were lucky enough to stumble upon this place yesterday.

It's a damn good beer bar. About 30 beers on tap, with most of them being Northwest selections. When I was there, there was only 1 beer per brewery -- definitely an opportunity to check out a number of breweries. The atmosphere is great; it's in an old mortuary (hence the name) and is furnished with dark woods and warm lighting. Service was reasonable, although the place was ferociously busy at 8 PM and I didn't get a chance to chat with the staff about beer.

I will definitely be returning to the Pine Box. Definitely the best beer bar I've found on that side of the hill.
