It’s pretty difficult to find a calm place for drinking beer on Capitol Hill that isn’t The Stumbling Monk, or someone’s coat closet in a craftsman way up on Aloha. That’s where Metier comes in. Yes, it’s a store that sells cycling accessories, but there’s also a big picnic table and a long coffee/beer bar where we often see busy people with laptops working away over pints of hard cider and kombucha shandies. It’s an ideal hang if you want people to think you’re really into cycling, when maybe you don’t even know how to ride a bike (and that’s OK).
