A: We strolled in here after leaving NW Peaks. A big open warehouse area with some tables and chairs at the entrance. A counter with a small bar area with six seats or so with a cooloer for cans to go. The wide open area and location provides a great place to sit and chat while having a brew. With street traffic, patrons coming in and out and staff at work it's really not that stale of a place. I think they are pretty relaxed on pets as well.
Q: Most beers I have had from Hilliards ranges from average to good. No complaints from my visit today, nor did my sidekicks and we each had something different. My Chrome Satan California Common was rather refreshing.
S: Not bad. No major complaints. They all did their job. Bring me beer and answer questions.
S: About six selections if I recall. Most Hilliards beers are sessionable so you wont be finding any BBN RIS here.

Sweet warehouse spot in the industrial lower end of Ballard
The interior is quite the site - your eyes immediately gravitate to palates stacked upon palates of craft cans ascending into the sky. there are some tables and a little room at the bar, but the room feels much bigger than the seating capacity.
Much like Fremont Brewing, it's an industrial working-brewery interior, so in the winter, it's a little chilly inside but thats part of the appeal. They have a working beer vending machine, so thats pretty awesome.
Not much in the way of beer yet - a few canned options, the amber and the saison, with sweet retro design and pretty decent elixir inside. Hard to put a finger on it, but this is the kind of place i like to fiscally support.
They don't have a kitchen but they do have regularly scheduled food trucks on site, and not just standard stuff - the cream of the crop. Skillet, Snout & Co and Where Ya at Matt aren't just good food trucks, they are absolutely wonderful dining options in general. Check the website/twitter for schedules, but this is a HUGE drawing point in my book.
