The Seattle Weekly put out a handy-dandy map in order to help you drink your way through Seattle for this drinkiest of weekends—it is Saint Patrick’s Day, after all.
The Seattle Weekly made some notes on the best beer options in each neighborhood. Here are the details for Lower and Upper Queen Anne:
Lower Queen Anne: Lower Queen Anne’s denizens love Schooner Exact Brewing Co.’s King St. Brown. Ozzies, T.S. McHugh’s, the Great Nabob, Spectator, and Buckley’s all have the beer on tap, so in this case, we’re going with the law of large numbers.
Upper Queen Anne: The 3-Grid IPA is what flies at the Hilltop Ale House, the upper Queen Anne watering hole of choice. It’s a perfectly calibrated brew for this ‘hood: pale, bitter, and just a little too expensive.
If you can’t make it today, but still want to celebrate, the Streamline will be having its 23rd annual St. Patti’s Day birthday party and fundraiser this Saturday, March 19 at 6 p.m. There will be corned beef and cabbage, and all donations will go to Fighting Words, a creative writing center established by Roddy Doyle and Sean Love, inspired by Dave Eggers’ 826 Valencia in San Francisco (and satellite 826 Seattle in Greenwood).
