So what are some of the places around the Hotel people can go for good beer, some food, and more good beer?
I know there's a Rock Bottom and The Tap House Grill nearby, but maybe some locals can give a couple other suggestions.
I arrived early for the Washington Brewers Fest and the Fremont Solstice Parade and Art Fair, and have been exploring Bellevue. As suggested, using Around Me, Yelp, or even Google Places review is a great resource. There's plenty of chain restaurants a skywalk away, but if you walk about 5-10 extra minutes there's some great places along Bellevue Way NE as well as on 2nd or Main. Mod's Speed Pizza, great pho at Pho All Day, Belle Pastry French bakery, and Chace's Pancake Corral are just a few tasty discoveries.
To get into Seattle you can catch the #550 that goes through Pioneer Square, near Pike Place Market and Pike Pub and Brewery.
Not nearby, but 10 miles by car is a great food and beer selection is Brouwer's Cafe in Fremont.
