The Big Time Brewery and Alehouse sits right in the heart of the university district, in the middle of a block full of college student type stores.
The kitchen stays busy whipping up pub fare food. In the back one of the brewers came out and confirmed what their website says, that when they opened in 1988 they were the first brewpub in Seattle. Not craft brewery, but brewpub, with on premises sales and food. So that's another milestone to note in retracting the history of modern craft brewing in Washington.
