#2164 - Topside Bar and Grill, Steilacoom, WA - 5/17/2013

Steilacoom is a small town on the southern Puget Sound that was the first town incorporated in what would become the state of Washington (1854). There's not much doing in Steilacoom these days, but there are some excellent views of the sound, and one of them is from the patio of the Topside. They serve good pub food, 17 rotating taps of good beer, and have some surprisingly good cocktails for a small-town bar. I talked to John O'Reilly, the owner and bartender who recommended Uncle Val's Gin. John worked as a bartender when this space was beer mecca Jake's Bar & Bistro, and the Puget Sound area owes him thanks for reviving one of the more pleasant settings in the state to enjoy some fish and chips and a beer.
