Since its been a few years since we lived in Seattle I surveyed my friends about their favorite places and things in the city. This is my favorite question we asked and it was the most interesting to me. Witness had 4 votes and I've never heard of it. There was a greater diversity of locations around the city, which I think proves my friends will go great distance for good drinks!
What's your favorite beer, wine or whisky spot?
