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.

The selection of beers here is perhaps unbeaten in Seattle. Great selection, and therefore worth visiting.
However, the staff can be rude, and the atmosphere unpleasant. Like the Red Door down the street, and other Fremont bars, the fraternity crowd sometimes takes over. Timing matters here.

Not exactly noticeable from the outside, but the inside is another matter.
Was there on a weekday afternoon, so was quiet. Great selection of taps, and many interesting bottles I have not seen before. Bartendress was quite knowledgeable, but a bit unfriendly.

I visited this place on a Friday afternoon, and boy was I in for a pleasant surprise. Very spacious, bright interior with skylights. Plent of tables downstairs with a long long bar as well. There is also a surrounding loft-like second floor with more intimate booths I believe. Updated and accurate tap list with coolers behind the taps filled with bottles. Rediculous selection. I had the veal, which was absolutely awesome. The bartender I had was extremely knowledgeable. Bathrooms were tidy. It is very challenging for me to find faults with this place. The best beer bar I have ever been to.
