Visited on a weekday around noon. Huge place with a long bar and lots of seating. It was nearly empty when we visited. We ate out on the patio and had lunch and a few beers. I didn’t count, but it seemed to me they had significantly less than 64 taps. That said, the selection was pretty good and they had a good number of bottles. I had a De Proef Saison Imperiale and a Duchesse De Bourgogne Sour Red. Wish I could go back to try more. The service was excellent as was the food.

Beer heaven. Great Belgium beer and food, which is also fantastic. I have turned at least 10 people on to this place this year. It gets crowded around 9-10 Friday or Saturday. Everything I have tried on the menu is great. The draft American beer is also amazing. The best bar in Seattle.

This place is a dream come true and a must visit for any beer lover’s trip to the Pacific NW. The food was fantastic - the homemade Hot Link sausage was absolutely divine, showing up even the exquisite grilled duck and succulent strip steak that also graced my plate. The beer list was also incredible, and for the big spender, they even had bottles of ’00 Lou Pepe Geueze on the bottle list. The interior was tastefully done, service was great, tap selection adequate, bottle list impressive, glassware done marvelously, and food incredible. If more fine dining moved in this direction, this world would be a far more heavenly place. Met and exceeded all expectations.

....A Beer and Broad lovers dream! I went there with my wife and her friend and boy friend. We get there and theres no tables cause its pretty busy on Saturdays. The guy and me went to the Bar to get some beer and the girlds waited by the Couches. There are 2 really fine girls there just waiting to get into something I guess. I order 2 Delerium Nocturnum beers and the B tender hands the bottles over and the girls like the pink elephant on the front so they start chatting with us. We flirted for a bit and then headed to our ladies with the beers.
We sat and ate and got drunk and ordered more beer and then saw the girls again and gave them a quick wink whiched pissed them off cause we were already with somebody. Truely a nice place with a decent guy to girl ratio and excellen and I mean excellent beer and food selection. I highly rate this bar because of its selection/Ambiance and the fact that I probably would have got some if single because of a beautiful beer bottle!
Thanks Brouwers....and by the way where were you 10 years ago when I really needed you!

I really, really want to give Brouwers a higher score, but the service has just killed me. I asked for the bill 3 times last time we went before I finally received it. I finished writing my complaint and then saw gratuity was automatically included. We were a party of 3 and happened to start talking to the poeple next to us. Friggin obscene. HOWEVER, their taps are amazing, and while one might find some other locales with a few more, I doubt you’d find much with competing quality.

Brouwers is Simple and unassuming on the outside, but comfy and well appointed on the inside. The beer selection was very nice, with about 80% being belgian style ales. Lots of bottled beers too. Food was way above average. Prices were reasonable. Service was friendly, but a little uninspired. Despite the good beers, the crowd seemed to be fairly non-beer geek. I would definitely recommend.

What a beer bar is meant to be modeled like! Modern, industrial and simple. From concrete floors, the iron spanners, and the copious amounts of thick Northwestern wood. Its not overly busy with decorations. Its perfectly lit between natural, and wall and ceiling hung halogen lights. Huge footprint with a capacity I’d imagine is nearing 400 patrons. I tried my best to count the taps but faltered around 55 taps. At the north end of the bar is a scotch counter that looked to contain over 100 labels on four shelves. We only sampled the cheese plates but they contained enough variety with a Cabrales Blue, Mahon, Boerenkaas and a Ste. André triple cream brie. I think there was also a thinly sliced Gala apple and an Olive Oil cracker. I love the building, I love the tap list and I love the neighborhood. Shameless promoter of… heh-hem… quality hardcore drinking in partnership with Bottleworks for the 5th Annual Hard Liver Festival. Bon chance!

I have never rated this place because in theory it is amazing, but in practice not so much. I have been there many times over the course of the years and every time I leave with a bad taste in my mouth. The beers are great and depending on the day and time the ambiance is good or bad. What I cannot get past are the prices, some of the rude staff and the fact that they will not give you a sample. I have shopped at Bottleworks and find it an great place. Their bar on the other hand is lacking. If they could combine the type of service and understanding at Bottleworks with Brouwer’s, I would return again. As for now I shall frequent the other bars for a while.

Not much to say that hasn’t already been said. Great selection, great food and great people. I never seem to get enough of this place. It can get rather loud when it is packed though.
