On my first full day in Seattle, I arranged to meet a twitter friend at a brewpub in the University area for a drink and a chat. I got there a little too early for our meeting, and ducked in just a few minutes after they opened. The Big Time Brewery was fairly large on the inside, with tables to the right to sit down, a bar and windows to fermenters on the left, and a counter for ordering food. The atmosphere was antiqued, but in a really classy and comforting way. Bottles and old brewery memorabilia covered the walls, and wood paneling and antique lighting fixtures really made it feel like a blast from the past.
