Brickyard Brewing's beer-makers brew what they want, when they want. And though the brewers usually lean toward American-style ales, the only strict requirement they have is to create craft beer that?according to their website?tastes "darn good." Started by neighbors Ean and Joe, Brickyard Brewing reinvigorates the pioneering spirit of brewing. The pair has 10+ years of experience in the industry and takes pride in crafting original recipes.
Anyone can sample the latest creations for themselves five days a week inside Brickyard Brewing's taproom, where bartenders serve up samples, flights, and pints. Visitors can also fill up kegs and growlers to go, or look for Brickyard's brews at one of its many wholesale partners.
Specializing in bombastic American fare, Chef Chris Nelson curates a menu of mouthwatering sandwiches, burgers, steaks, and salads. A bar remedies mouth droughts with a rotating selection of 12 draft beers, and big-screen televisions broadcast sports while the pool table extends hospitality to colorful balls.
While Pilates is corrective, The Bar Method is transformative—much like those cars that transform into miniature weasels. You’ll burn fat, sculpt muscles, refine your figure, and improve your strength and endurance. After a brief warm-up, you’ll tackle the upper body with weights and bar exercises. The workout continues with challenging lower-body positions and floor exercises designed to firm up your abs and glutes. This diverse and challenging workout gives you the long, lean muscles and elegant posture of a ballet dancer, all without the discomfort and inconvenience of being heckled by ballet hooligans.
The founders of Salud Whisky & Wine Bar have turned their passion for spirits into a massive collection?one that includes more than 125 wines and 150 whiskies. The bar's inventory features products from around the globe, but focuses primarily on wines and whiskies that have been crafted or grown in Washington. Visitors can dip into both selections on a daily basis, all while soaking up recommendations from Salud's wine- and whisky-wise staff. They can also try out the bar's own barrel-aged cocktails: pre-mixed drinks that have gone through the same aging process as other distilled spirits in order to alter their character and flavor.
The Sounders crowd is especially energetic at this trio of pubs, where the English vibe is reinforced by lodge-style decor and a menu replete with fried fish, kidney pies, and chips with curry sauce. Dartboards more than make up for the lack of action when there’s no game on.
With its hand-blown glass light fixtures, beckoning fireplace, and old-growth walnut bar-top, VoVina’ cultivates an old-world elegance. The décor’s chic simplicity carries over into a menu of European- and American-style small plates, such as Angus beef sliders and black truffle tater-tots, crafted to complement dozens of tempting cocktails. The Fountain of Youth blends Bombay Sapphire, St. Germaine, and a touch of green chartreuse, and the Asian Pear arrives shaken and strained over a soft lychee. Further underlining the Jazz Age-feel, the bar touts one of the largest absinthe selections in the area. The legendary spirits are poured plain or blended into beverages, inspiring guests to dance the Charleston atop VoVina’s locally grown, recycled maple tables.
