In Focus: Sloop Tavern
Claim to fame: the Slooper, a 33.8-ounce selection of beer that, per The Stranger,
arrives "in a chilled mug bigger than one's head for a shockingly low price"
Also behind the bar: even bigger 55-ounce drafts, plus a rotating selection of locally produced microbrews
Recommended bite: the fish and chips, whose hand-battered Alaskan cod with tempura beer batter is among the city's best, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Other eats: mini corn dogs, bratwursts and kraut, tater tots smothered in nacho fixings
Entertainment: two billiards tables, darts, Golden Tee, big-screen Buck Hunter, and the day's biggest games on TVs throughout the bar
