djhelix Nov 26, 2008 05:22 PM

Aside from Pike and Elysian, I'm looking for three to four quintessential beer geek spots in Seattle. Any suggestions?

          yes BPP is also a must. many tasty beers on tap. mmm...
          there is a cool little place in pike's market called the 'white horse', but they only have a couple of beers to choose from. i just like the ambiance from time to time.

          Awesome, thanks for the recommendations. Brouwers seems to be the Toronado of Seattle.

          Uber is beer-geek heaven.

            Naked City Brewery opened recently in Greenwood, and so far, we like it very much. About 20 microbrews on tap (including some of their own) and a small menu. Staff is super friendly and very knowledgeable about all the beers they have.

            Ray's Boathouse also has a lot of beers on tap. Another option might be to go to Redhook out in Woodinville.

              Big Time, Pub at Piper's Creek, Jolly Roger. Also agree with other posters re: Beverage place, Brouwers, Collins pub.

                I'll agree with Brouwers and the Jolly Roger (Fridays 5pm special cask keg). I'll also throw in Sully's Snowgoose, which I've never eaten at but does have a great selection of probably 20+ beers on tap.

                  I did not know Sully's had food. Can anybody say more?

                    Duck Island has about 20 rotating taps also, and it's crawling distance from Über (which can get completely packed on Fri/Sat nights).

                    Duck Island Ale House
                    7317 Aurora Ave N, Seattle, WA

                      Not a bar, but Georgetown Brewery makes quality beer, allows you to taste things, and sells kegs to go in various sizes.

                    Brouwer's and Über Tavern are the best for beer geeks. The Hopvine has a great rotating selection of microbrews. Beveridge Pub has (or at least used to have) Belgian Tuesdays, where beers like Westmalle Tripel are only $6.
