A nice, family-friendly Ballard brew pub with a full bar and a long menu of above-average grub. The pub isn't open all night. You can take Hale's beer home in kegs, hobo jugs (64oz "growlers"), and regular bottles by the six-pack, or bring in your own containers for a nice discount. Upstairs is a facility for private events (rehearsal dinners and the like).
