The Goat Rodeo

Life, Beers & Brewing in a secluded (and slightly off kilter) nook in Northern California

Sunday, November 12, 2006


Many of the good bars in Seattle have been reconfigured into upscale places (think The Wagon Wheel, The Midget, The Classic, The Freamont Tavern or The Palms - sadly all gone now) but there are still a many good places to get a drink.

The Elysian Brewery (and Pub)
- 1221 East Pike, Seattle, WA 206 860 1920. Great award winning beers, good food, interesting crown, good staff. + we love the owners
Nine Pound Hammer - 6009 Airport Way S, Seattle, WA, 206.762.3373. Cool, dark bar for the Alt. Crowd. Several other good bars in this area. NPH is my favorite.
The Lava Lounge - 2226 2nd Ave Seattle. The interior is like the inside of a sailing ship - lots of good tiki bar stuff, and strong drinks.
The Alibi - on Post alley. Nice little bar with cool activities and a good beer selection (good Bloody Marys).

The Buckaroo - 4201 Fremont. After the Fremont Tavern closed this was the biker bar of choice, but it has tamed over the years. Still, it has a decent beer selection and lots of character (s) + some good bike viewing on most nights.
Brouwer's - 400 N 35th st. Owned by two beer fanatics (and nice guys) - thus an excellent beer line up. I hear the food is good there too (but who want to eat with so many beers to choose from).

Stumbling Monk - 1635 E. Olive Wy. Homey and comfortable (all be it a bit beat up) Pub. Very nice selection of beers. Great place to hangout.
The Latona - 6423 Latona Ave N.E. Nice comfortable pub wih a really good beer selection.
The Comet - 922 E. Pike. One of just a few Dive bars left on the Seattle menu. When I think of Seattle bars in the late 80's Grunge days - this is it. Stiff drinks and decent beers on tap. An all around favorite.
Hattie's Hat - 5231 Ballard Ave NW. This is a Ballard institution (and a cool place). A classic kind of diner/bar. Stiff drinks, decent food.
