The brewpub is surprisingly large inside. The front has full windows and so is quite bright but the back is a bit dark and cavernous. Overall, it is somewhat industrial with the flourescent light tubes, metal ducting, and concrete floors. The front has a comfortable couch and armchair. Otherwise, most of the seating is at wooden tables with wooden captains chairs, except for a few booths, and a few tall tables with padded leather stools near the bar. The bar itself has a rich dark wooden top and a brass footrail and more stools. The ceilings are fairly high. The walls are painted mustard yellow and the columns are individually painted with the Northwest Cascade volcanos - Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, etc. (keep an eye out for the Sasquatch painted on the mountains on which he has been sighted :-) Several other murals and paintings, also done by local artists, decorate the walls. There is a kids play area and a couple flat screen TVs (sound off).

The feeling in the pub is friendly and comfortable. We had a great visit - we were invited to walk around in the brewery and the refrigerated room where the brite tanks are and the owners stopped by our table for a chat. The brewery itself is in the front and is visible through windows.

There were ten house-made beers on tap. The IPA was good, if a bit cloudy, the Raspberry Oatmeal Stout (made with fresh berrires) was special, as was the dry-hopped Red.

Parking is available in the back.

The Golden Ale was much like a Hefe with slight hint of banana. The pils was slightly sweet on first impression because it was fruity but it finished with good bitterness. The Reverend's Daughter Light Belgian with slight clove and banana and moderate hop bitterness. Belgian wit was average. The IPA was good and hoppy. They have a happy hour from 3 to 6pm. They also had a good Baltic Porter. The samplers were a nice 4 or 5 ounce size. I did not sample the food.

Family friendly with lots of space for big and small groups this was a nice pub. They had a small area for the kids to play which helps when they get tired of listening to daddy and mommy talk about beer. With the brewery right up front you can watch as they are moving about and making a new batch of beer. The food was regular pub fair which is awesome for me. Club sandwiches are for me I think I should rate all the club sandwiches I have ever had. The brews where pretty tasty they had some flair and some interesting flavors to choose from. The Belgian influence was in a lot of the brews. I really liked the Vanilla Porter it was subtle with vanilla, smooth and creamy. I can see why lots of people like this place there is a good vibe and fun brews to have. The parking can be a tad touchy and the traffic in the area can be a tad awful.

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

The beer selection is very European -- not my cup of tea. The food is downright bad. The location is very good. The service is below average.

The pizza I ordered once tasted at best as good as something you'd buy frozen at the supermarket.

The beer is not bad but there are only a couple of American style ales to choose from. The other styles are from Belgium I think. The brewer and his father have a history with that.

Great line-up of house brews and a wide variety of styles considering they usually have only 8-10 beers at any one time.

Very friendly staff and plenty of seating.

Brewmaster seems to really know what he is doing and is generally happy to show you behind the scenes if you seem inclined.

Sample tray is a great idea.

There are some comfortable lounges in the front of the restaurant in case you want a more casual seating environment.

Their menu gives very good descriptions of all the beers.

Lots of good food choices too!
