Bob’s Keg & Cork is in Yakima’s former City Hall. It’s a brick building across from the former train depot. It’s a real regular’s place (though strangers are definitely welcomed-we’ve had all sorts of conversations on our visits) that celebrates both craft beer and wine. There are six taps and two beers on cask. On our latest visit, the craft beers were: Yakima Craft 1882, Lucille IPA, and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale; accompanied by Guinness, Newcastle, and Chimay triple; and the two cask beers were Yakima Craft Imperial Red and 1882.

The space is one good sized-room with double high ceilings. Two walls are brick, the front, which also has huge windows, and one side. The side with the entrance is painted a cream color and behind the bar is a huge mural showing a farmer working in a large hilly vineyard with a forest on one side. The bar itself is a simple wooden bar with stools. Along the side brick wall is the wine area with another simple bar with numerous wine bottles. Hung on the wall behind are several fascinating paints of Northwest coastal Indians. Assorted short and tall tables with captain’s chairs fill the room.

Food is available but we didn’t try anything (though the taco special on our last visit looked quite good).

You should really visit this place.

For the serious Beer and Wine enthusiast, Bob's Keg & Cork is the "must visit" pub in Yakima. Bob has 5 CO2 taps, 1 Nitrogen tap and 2 beer engines. Brewers from around the Northwest brew special cask conditioned versions just for Bob's beer engines. Bob worked at the original Grant's Brewpub and has successfully patterned his pub after that establishment. There are bars in town with more taps, but none of them equal Bob's in atmosphere and in the friendliness of the regulars. Bob also has a very extensive selection of wine, the best in town, with bottles from under $20 to in the Hundreds. The food is typical pub fare and the quality is very good. (Not to be confused with Bob's Burgers and Brews, which is just an average chain restaurant).
