« on: June 03, 2015, 06:13:15 PM »
Headed down to Seattle for a long weekend.  I've randomly stopped at a few breweries and overall haven't been too impressed.  After a little research it looks like there are a couple newer places that I need to stop at.

Black Raven - Been before and was impressed
Holy Mountain - REALLY want to check this place out
Reuben's Brews - Might be good
Populuxe - Have a few things that look promising


Anyone been to any of these places or have other suggestions?

Everything I've heard about Brouwer's has been positive, although it's not a brewery.

There's a bottle shop/tap room right near Black Raven.

Also, make sure to ask Proninja about his religion bicycles.

Favorite spots in each district for me:

West Seattle: Beveridge Place. Always a great tap list when I've been. Cool vibe too.

Fremont: Outlander Brewery. Just a nano, but super cool. In an old house. Awesome owner. Brauers is cool too. Good food. Only frustration with them is literally every time I pick a bottle from the bottle list they don't actually have it. Over and over again this has happened. Fremont also has an awesome all cider bar if you are into ciders.

University: Bottleworks is awesome. Love the place. There was a cool really old brewpub I stumbled into as well more "downtown" University that had tasty beers and a good staff. Don't remember the name though...

Capital Hill: Pine Box. Love the place. Old funeral home. Great beers and food. They also have a great cider bar further up the hill.

I'm not sure what district this one is one, but I love: Epic Ales. Tiny place with fantastic food super eclectic beers (and food). Always a house berliner with multiple house syrups to blend in.
Home is where the Nelson is.

Went out I'm Woodinville tonight since that's where I'm staying.  A couple really good places.  First was a place that's been open for 2 months, Sumerian.  The hoppies were top notch and the pils was pretty decent too.  Then went to Triplehorn which was also good.  I went there about 2 years ago when they first opened.  Couldn't even tell it was the same place now with all the expansions.  Super cool place with some good beers.  The nitro milk stout is ridiculously good.

Made it to holy mountain yesterday.  Very cool place with some really good beers.  Spelt saison was great on a hot day.  They apparently have a couple fruited table sours that are close to being released.

This place was great when i was out there 3-4 cantillon's on tap(was the day after Zwanze Day) plus a ton of locals that were fantastic when i was there and the food was really good, the only thing that sucked was getting there from just north of downtown.

I'm headed to Seattle at the end of next week. Did Epic close last year?
