Upcoming Events
Headed by Ian Roberts (a founder of Seattle Beer Week and former bar manager at Brouwer’s), the Pine Box enlivens its (gorgeous) mortuary setting with more than 30 beers on tap. The pizza is good, and the short rib—a Flintstones-sized block of meat served with tzatziki and a shiitake/Parmesan hand pie—is great. Mostly, the Pine Box works marvelously as a beer hall. It’s loud and lovely and a lot of fun.
