About this business
From Our Editors
Formerly a funeral home—and the site of Bruce Lee's memorial in 1973—The Pine Box takes its cheeky name in part from the building's history (it's also on the corner of Pine Street). The stained-glass windows, church-pew seating, and cathedral ceilings are carryovers from the space's previous life as The Chapel Bar, but it's since been transformed into what can only be described as a beer heaven. With about 30 brews on tap, beer-lovers make regular pilgrimages to check out the new varieties. The choices change so frequently, a paper menu can't keep up, so an LCD screen, website, and town crier are used instead. Customers overwhelmed by the selection can hit up the daily three-hour happy hour to try drinks at a discounted rate or check out tastings and other special events. Of course, the easy choice would be to drink whatever is running through the bar's built-in randall––a contraption that infuses tap brews with different ingredients such as orange peel and lemongrass or maple bacon and peanut butter chips. For those who like their suds served with something more substantial, the Pine Box also serves a contemporary dinner menu that features dishes such as pizza with pulled pork and habanero pineapple salsa or cold curry poached sockeye salmon. Come weekends, cocktails and creative eats share equal billing on a brunch menu, where favorites include mezcal bloody marys and skewers of bacon and house-pickled eggs.
