If you dried out a new Sharpie marking your calendar with all of the dates when you have out-of-town guests visiting, you probably plan to spend a decent amount of time parading them around Pike Place. When everyone’s had their fill of looking at regurgitated wads of gum and sniffing raw halibut, head to Old Stove Brewing for a flight. It’s a massive waterfront space with mash tuns on display, plenty of communal picnic tables, and a menu of food pairings that aren’t all total grease traps - like manchego flatbreads, salads, and soft pretzels with Beecher’s dip.
