Craft Beer and Good Vibes: A Night Out at Machine House Brewery
Machine House Brewery is located in the Georgetown district of Seattle, and its exterior resembles an Edwardian church. The brewery specializes in making English-style beers that are low in alcohol percentage but very tasty. Customers can try all the different beers on tap before making their selection. While the beer selection may not cater to every palate, the dedication to being unique and different is admirable. The beer is served in casks, English-style, which means that it is flat and room temperature. The brewery has communal seating, a kids play area, and a nice selection of board games, making it a great spot to hang out. Customers can bring their own food, and there is also a Fijian food stall outside on Saturdays. The brewery is drafty and cold in the winter, but the community feel warms visitors up. The beer prices are reasonable, at around $5 for a 16oz pour.
