The place is huge, and I almost missed it. If it werenít for a small, lighted Chimay sign, I would have. Interior had a mountain lodge type of feel. Excellent beer selection that appeared to be primarily a split between local/regional offerings and Belgians. I had halibut, quite nice. Worth going to, glad to see more and more cities with bars like this one.

Have been meaning to update my rating for some time now....Iíve had some of the worst service ever over the past 6 months at various times, once when we were 1 of about 3 tables in there.
Yes, they still have awesome beer. Yes, Iíll go back. But, Iím going to do my best to just sit at the bar and not have to deal with the servers. Iíve kind of just stopped frequenting here. Too many other good options in town that try hard to make you happy.
This place is a must for anyone visiting Seattle...unparalleled selection and a great place to grab a few beers. Bartenders are very knowledgable. Food is great. Yeah, itís expensive....but well worth it.

State of the art. New construction, mountain lodge feel. Exposed rock, channel steel, and timber.
Long beer bar backed with endless bottle coolers (glass fronted). Side bar for spirits. Back room for fireplace.
Lots of yups due to the neighborhood, can get crowded.
Food is great; they make a good yeoman effort at Belgian dishes. Good steak, good frites, good mussels, good salads.
The catch? Spendy. $40/plate if you have apps and a couple of interesting beers.
As the years have gone by, the kitchen has come up steadily. Itís easily worthy of your food dollar, the food is easily worthy of the beers it accompanies. Not the greatest restaurant in Seattle, but many very fine dishes. Prices arenít getting any lower, and never will, but the beer selection is phenomenal and the kitchen is now rock solid.

Everything youíve heard is true. The place is beautiful and tastefully decorated. The beer selection is awesome. I was impressed that they still had 5 non-BWís on tap during the BW Fest, great move! The staff was fairly knowledgable and prompt. Food was good. While your in the neighborhood, you can even check out the troll under the Hwy. 99 bridge!

Unassuming outside, hard to find with no obvious sign out front. Inside - not at all what I expected. The place is slick, almost fancy. Huge bar, with tons of taps, several engines, bottles prominently displayed behind the bar. Two floors, second is more of a balcony from which you can look down on the bar. As has been said, a pretty pricey place, but some really awesome stuff, both in draft and bottles, particularly belgains. Proper glassware. Also, this place is almost entirely beer focused, but the people there were not just beer geeks like myself. Iím acutally surprised they are able to make money, as many of their brews canít appeal to the average drinker. But hey, Iím not complaining. Service was not quite as knowledgeable as I would have liked, but still very good.

A great selection of beers (understatement). Hell, they have everything the law allows in WA state as far as I can tell. Strict adherence to the use of proper glassware (very nice). They present beer like a French chef presents an entrťe. They give beer the respect it is due. A great place for Belgians. A great selection of top shelf booze (this isnít ratescotch, however). Personally, I was not overwhelmed by the food. The bartenders seem to know their shazzzitt about beer. The wait staff, not so much. Donít get me wrong, I love this place. Only because other reviewers have been so over-the-top in love with Brouwerís must I say that it is not everyoneís idea of a beer Mecca. It is kind of dark, very modern and industrial in a Euro-hip kind of way, and some folks arenít so fond of that. I think it is definitely very cool, and the selection of beer is unparalleled; however it comes very close to being beer snobbery. Iím sure there are many who will consider me a Coors-swilling moron for suggesting such a thing. And therein lays my point. So much for the devilís advocate thingÖ A tour of Seattle beer joints would be incomplete without a visit to Brouwerís. This is where the tour should start.

The owners of Bottleworks can do no wrong. Over 50 taps, about half of which are Local or Western micros, the rest are imports rarely seen in tap form. The bottle list is a wonder, basically the entire Bottleworks inventory is available, and thatís a lot of bottles. Amazing renovation + Freemont broom factory = an atmosphere most Suburbian restaraunts can only dream of. There is a definite threshold waiting to drop between beer loving Seattlites and Yuppies - but the place still caters to mostly gooey-eyed beer geeks. The only knock on the place is the absurdly high numbers printed after menu listings - two digit numbers for most everything. That being said, the food is good, but it leaves you less anxious to buy that Cantillion.

You simply must go here if in Seattle. My only knock is the price on some of the food but I am a cheap bastard.

I went to this place after the Cask Beerfest and was told by many an brewer that this was the place to go to when in Seattle. This place is freaking awesome. I am speechless when descriging it. So many beers, so many Scotchís........ Try to get a booth if you can, I sat on the upstairs ring, which was okay. It was Saturday of Halloween weekend, it was packed, and the servers still managed to do one terrific job. I had a sandwhich there, they are pretty big and damn tasty.

Just like Cancun was engineered from the ground up to be appealing to college binge drinkers, this place was built with the beergeek in mind. Unassuming but relaxed exterior, upscale interior with very classy decor, not too cheesy. Wide tap selection, the belgins are a bit pricey but thereís plenty to be had. Lots of bottles. I didnít talk to the staff much about the beer but they answered any questions I had. The food was great, a bit spendy, but there were plenty of other things on the menu Iíd love to try next time Iím there. This place rocks!
