Visited on a Thursday night around 7.30 pm in Nov ’12.
The place is one largeish room set on 2 levels and whilst fairly quiet on our arrival picked up business as the evening progressed to the point at whicih there were no tables left.
Service was friendly and informative and when I complained about the lack of cheese on my burger one of the kitchen staff came out to speak to me and asked me what I wanted ie - a new burger or some grated or sliced cheese to supplement it ! You can’t fault that tbh !
Beer range was extensive, 50 + taps of varying styles. I didn’t really look at the bottled list as there were plenty of WA/OR winners for me allied to others from around the US.
A very good venue and one I’d certainly head back to.

If I lived in Seattle I’d hope this would be my local... Great bar, staff, choice of beer styles and welcoming regulars. What more could one want? I am still amazed the staff do not clean the line after a barrel runs out but replace it altogether! Wow, quality is top agenda here.

Wow, holy Beervana! Endless taps and an encyclopedia sized bottle list. Lively place with decent food. The service staff is comically more than a little pretentious. But, if you get past that, it’s one of the best selection of beers I’ve seen anywhere. They have great beer events, can’t wait for their next Sourfest.

This place is heaven! They have a huge selection of beer on tap, an even larger selection of bottles and a website listing the beers they sell which is always up to date. The staff is knowledgeable about their beers, and can answer any question I’ve thrown at them. They serve their beer in the proper glasses and often use the brewer’s own glass. The food is excellent--especially the pommes frites--and they have a reasonably priced menu with a very good happy hour. In addition they have a skylight in the roof which gives the place a really neat feel on a sunny day, they have outside seating (which is nice but can be really loud), and the hand-dryer in the bathroom really works!

I can’t rave enough about this place. Good location, nice atmosphere, inspired menu and lot’s of good beer. Service was spotty, I went 4 times in 3 days, and had great, average and poor service. One of the best bars I have ever been too and recommend highly.

Great place. Huge selection. Decent food -- not exactly cheap, but not exactly expensive either (just that middle ground where everything feels like a few dollars more than I would expect). Beer on menu is arranged by brewery location. They host some great events (e.g., Bigwood, Hard Liver), have frequent brewer’s nights.
Everything is seat yourself, and as this place gets crowded you can expect to see a number of people hovering around tables in the hopes of swooping in to grab it as soon as the current occupants stand up. May have to wait for awhile for a server to come by and take your order.
Beer prices aren’t unreasonable -- if anything, just a tiny shade higher than for the same beer elsewhere, but nowhere else has such a wide selection or the same ambiance.
Definitely one of my all-time favorite beer destinations, if for nothing else than the selection alone. A nice whiskey selection as well, if I could ever pull myself away from the beer menu.

In Fremont area north of the river. Interesting neighborhood and area. Terrific atmosphere in a very interesting building with an L shaped bar - with a whiskey bar at the bottom of the L - multi-leveled, high ceiling restaurant area around with lofts overlooking the bar. 60 some taps along the long bar with a cool looking cooler behind with shelves of bottles stacked in the cooler windows. Terrific food, terrific personality with some quirkiness. Very cool place.

(Visited 09/2012 on the Seattle Road Dogs Tour): Brouwer’s is located on the north side of Seattle in the Fremont area on N 35th. There is a small lot and street parking nearby.
The bar is in a warehouse-type building. The interior is open with dark wood and chandeliers. Wooden tables past the entrance then a long bar in the back.
Brouwer’s has over 60 taps with lots of quality choices broken out geographically on the menu (primarily Belgium and Pacific Northwest). Some highlights on my visit included Big Time, New Belgium, Chuckanut, Sound Brewing, Deschutes, Russian River and many others. Extensive bottle list as well.
Service on a slow weekday afternoon was good. I only had time for one beer as this was not an official tour stop (I ran in while the tour guide grabbed a bite at a food truck across the street) and the bartender made a good recommendation. A couple brewers from Green Flash happened to be at the bar too which was cool.
I did not have any food on my visit.
Overall this is a great beer bar that I plan on visiting again.

My wife and I visited here on our 3-month road trip around the country. Only beer place we hit in Seattle, and we chose wisely. It’s in the awesome Fremont neighborhood a few miles north of Downtown. The atmosphere is cool, a big open rectangle shape with a horseshoe-shaped mezzanine above the bar and tables. Had the Halloween decorations up and they fit in really well. Low-lit, wood and steel overall. The taps are all really solid, a good mix of Belgians, Washington, West Coast, and other American crafts. I wound up ordering mostly Oregon and California stuff; no offense to the locals, just better selections at the time. The bartender was super friendly and helpful despite me asking a bunch of questions. We got talking to a second bartender, too. We ordered a couple lamb burgers and they were great; glad I got the fries. All-in-all, a fantastic beer destination with an outstanding beer list, great staff, excellent food, and cool atmosphere. A must-visit in Seattle.

Brouwer’s was one of the first stops on our West Coast Beer Adventure / Family vacation. Easily one of the best and most memorable beer bars I’ve ever been to in my life. Huge, spacious bar with multiple levels and a huge bar. We sat at the bourbon bar. The beer list is incredible - the draft list is enormous, impressive and diversive; then you look at the bottle list....blown away. Topped the visit off with a Drie Font Hommage. Everything is reasonably priced. All of the staff was friendly and funny. One of the girls actually drew us driving directions to a few of the other beer bars around town. Incredible hospitality. This is your first priority if ever stopping through Seattle. Could be the best beer bar in the world as far as I’m concerned.
