I've been excited to visit Reubens for about a year now after being very impressed with all their hoppy offerings I had had. Unfortunately it seems as though it's super busy most of the time and they could use a few more pourers.
Tons of beers on tap...almost a ridiculous amount. Everything was good but their hops are stellar. I like their use of rye as a common adjunct. The coffee cream ale was very good, sours are getting there. Drink IPAs here like there's no tomorrow.
Service was ok and friendly. Cool little building with plenty of street parking and a good food truck out front.
A great place to kill a few hours will delicious beers!

Reuben's is a busy joint with a bartender who can handle his shit. We arrived right when they opened at 3:00 on a Wednesday and tried 11 different tasters. They were all good. Reuben's has been highly praised and now I see why. The vibe is cool; people sat at tables, inside and out, while others came in for growler fills. I could've stayed here all afternoon. Free pretzels with water on the side. The Ballard neighborhood is ripe with breweries and Reuben's holds the high point. Sit, sip and enjoy.

Nice place to hang and drink some beers. Found a few I beers I liked although I didn't fall in love with any one beer here. Service was friendly and sample requests were accommodated. I could see myself coming here from time to time as a change of pace.

Very cool place I got to check out on my recent trip.

Pretty crowded and lively on a Saturday afternoon. You are basically hanging out in the brewery, but it's a pretty nice space.

Quality is quite good. I was very impressed with most of the beers I tried on the sampler. Especially the Porter and the Rye. Selection is good too, about 12+ beers with good variety of style. Mostly just ales though.

Service was very good, the guys working up front were courteous and speedy even though the place was jammed full of people.

Great place, would recommend to anyone.
