Fair enough, but they've really improved since moving to Magnolia. \_(ツ)_/¯
Note: I don't work for them.
Making a fairly last minute trip to the Gorge for Phish this weekend. What cans should I stock up on in Seattle to crush all weekend out there?
Fremont Session Pale
Bale Breaker Field 41
Reubens Daily Pale
Oakshire Sun Made Cucumber Berliner
Melvin Hubert Pale
And stop by Holy Mountain for a Citra Extra Pale mini growler.
Thanks, that should do.
Do they fill other glass or just their own?
Just their own. Gassed and prefilled with a hand full of options. Kiln and Cone and the Pilsner sound perfect for the Gorge IMO.
They'll do outside growlers. Ive never done it, but I saw a guy get a 64 oz hydroflask filled once.
Yep. We'll fill your supplied glass with whatever is available that week.
I hit Holy Mountain and Pine Box.
Yeah, travelling with family not the most conducive to productive drinking.
Both places lived up to high expectations.
Spent a solid chunk of our day yesterday at Cloudburst, Holy Mountain, Stoup, and Ruebens with food stops at Un Bien, Walrus, and Manolin. Pretty killer day and as I sit on the plane I'm already pissed that I can't go to Holy Mountain weekly. Also stocked up on cans at Chucks before heading out to the Gorge, super solid shop.
Killed it with these recs. Shit, just realized I never tracked down daily pale. Oh well. I want that cuke Berliner every summer day forever.
I used to come out to Seattle for work all the time but it had been 6 years. Kinda forgot how kickass your city is, especially in the summer. Won't be another 6.
Anyone try either of the two new Standard Brewing hoppy beers?
Best options for local beer and to be able to watch football at the same time? Looks like most places don't have TVs, which is awesome 99% of the time
Belltown/Downtown - Cloudburst***
Capitol Hill - Pine Box***
Fremont - Six Gill or Brouwers
SLU - Brave Horse Tavern
Ballard - Meh
Belltown - Meh
Pioneer Square - Collin's Pub (also meh)
EDIT - Or my apartment if you have MBP. Bottle pours of HM, dG and Fremont are all on the menu
there is actually a new place in belltown that seems decent... can't speak to the TV issue though.
No TV. See this post for more info: http://www.talkbeer.com/community/posts/1172454/
Hmm. At least some of their food looked good...
Ended up going cloudburst, holy mountain, reuben's then stoup. Football became obsolete when the steelers decided to have a bye week. Couldn't be more impressed by your local beer scene
That's the cream of the crop right there. Well done.
For future reference, Latona Pub and Toronado are great for sports. Normally pretty quiet early on Saturday and Sunday. Just ask nice and they'll put your game on at Toro.
See, you have a Seattle thread.
