Five Things to Know About Pies & Pints

In many ways, Pies & Pints is just what it sounds like: Australian-style pot pies served with a rotating selection of local beers. But here are some ways Pies & Pints transcends its deceptively simple premise:

  • Every pie is made by hand. Using fresh veggies, housemade stocks, and locally sourced meats, cooks shape fixings into a variety of five-inch pot pies. They stuff each with a half-pound of filling, which can range from spinach and feta to lamb and potato, and crown it with a puff pastry top crust.
  • They even serve pie floating in soup. Appropriately enough, the concoction is called a pie float. Soup options range from split pea to the ever-changing soup of the day.

  • Desserts are handmade, too. Dedicated pastry chef Erika whips up decadent goodies such as baklava cheesecake and chocolate Guinness cake with Baileys filling.
  • Happy hour happens all-day on Monday. More happy hours and drink specials appear throughout the weekdays, too, including $4 whiskey gingers with housemade ginger syrup every Thursday.
  • It's a haven for local artists. In addition to hanging local artwork on the walls, Pies & Pints frequently hosts local music events, including the Sunday Night Folk Review, where folkies power through every iteration of "Blowin' in the Wind" known to man.

Atlantic Crossing is a typical British pub, offering plenty of old culinary standbys and brews from both Britain and America. There’s also a full bar, with which to wash down the latest Seattle Sounders soccer game, plus a full weekend brunch menu to accompany viewings of the English Premiere League’s morning-hours matches. But even when soccer balls aren’t flying on the big screen, this cozy neighborhood hangout, with its dark wooden bar, offers a pleasant place to sip Irish whiskey or belly up over a plate of Guinness beef stew, shepherd’s pie and other classic pub fare. A sometimes lively crowd can also snack on American treats like chicken wings, pizzas and burgers, then wile away the between-match hours with some pool from one of the nearby tables.

At The Iron Bull Sports Bar and Grill, patrons keep one eye on their plates and the other on any of the thirteen big-screen and two projection televisions. Although it’s chiefly known as the area’s unofficial home for Chicago Bears expats, the bar claims to carry “every sports package imaginable,” showing games and matches from the NFL, UFC, NBA, and NCAA. Bites ordered from the pub’s menu keep fans fueled up no matter what’s on, with hand-pressed burgers and sandwiches that also double as erasers for plays diagrammed using ketchup.
