Reuben’s Brews is a fun taproom with 24 homemade beers on tap and plenty of long wooden tables great for day drinking with a big group. There isn’t much decor beyond a few big beer-making tanks, but their beers are so good (especially the gose) that you won’t care. You can get discounts on delivery pizza from Ballard Pizza Company and Zeek’s if you call and tell them you’re here - and on the weekends, there’s also a rotating food truck parked outside. We’d advise against Zeek’s since it tastes like hot cardboard, but after guzzling 24 beers, we’d probably eat anything, too.
