A beer connoisseurs kind of place. A great selection of rotating taps that have things intended more for beer fans than the general public. For example, there are usually at least 2-3 stouts, some specialty high gravity stuff, plus an assortment of other styles. Clearly catering to a more discerning crowd. The bottle selection is top notch, with hundreds and hundreds of different brews available. A nice little unassuming place on the busy 85th Ave.

A walk-in beer cave behind the row of coolers contains tons of hard-to-get four and six packs. Always a nice variety of beers on tap. Staff are helpful. Some prices are about 25% higher than other places. Found some kinda rare beers, and enjoy their large selection of 12 oz. singles. On bustling 85th Street, if every beer lover driving by stopped in it would overwhelm their small parking lot.

Nice new little store on the edge of Kirkland and Redmond. Decent bottle selection, lots of locals plus up to 6 taps with growler fills available. Staff was very friendly and helpful in offering local options.
