The quintessential college bar, the Big Time has big wooden tables and offers affordable, hearty food for lean students and rich, dark beers for everyone. The Stranger's Lester Black notes, "Big Time is one of the country's oldest craft breweries and Seattle's oldest continuously operating brewery...Big Time's cellar of beers form a sort of history book for Seattle's beer scene, as many of the region's brewers have spent time working the mash tun on the Ave. Dozens of other breweries have employees who passed through Big Time's brewhouse, including Diamond Knot, American Brewing, Beardslee Public House, and Flying Bike."
