Visited for lunch hours more or less, on Wednesday June 24, 2015. Sat in a booth with my friends. Walked over from Fremont, but should’ve drove since parking was better here and we ended up getting a ticket down by Fremont. Still, walkable distance for sure. Fairly big place with a big selection, though as a beer geek from Europe not a whole lot from the selection screaming at me to get it. I remember eating here, but can’t remember what I had, so couldn’t have been all that special. I did fill up though, so that I can remember. Stayed for some food and the one beer. No flights available. OK service.

We got there kind of early in the day and were some of the few customers there. At first the bartender was kind of stiff and minimalist. But later she warmed up and became helpful and friendly. The only food we got were the frites with aioli. We were 3 guys and the medium fries, skin on were excellent on the right amount for us, tho we weren’t super hungry. The aioli was very good not enough quantity. Great draft beer selection of local and regional stuff and bartender was knowledgeable. Great interior too, looks like it’d be fun on a busy nite or Sat afternoon.

Since there are so many ratings of this place and I have nothing particularly original or contrarian to say about it, I will keep this brief - excellent tap list - overwhelming bottle list - tasty food - comfortable and friendly, despite the decor giving off a rather pretentious vibe when you walk in - excellent place, and certainly a must-stop if in Seattle.

Last beer stop of the day that I could convince the other half to stop at. Figured I might as well go out with a bang.

Big bar/restaurant with tons of space to sit inside, outside, at the bar, what have you. Very clean and modern look and feel to the place. Lots of dark stained wood and stainless steel. Comfortable bar stools as well, a big plus.

The servers here were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Unfortunately they don’t do tasters here and aren’t even really "allowed" to do just a splash of something if you’re unsure of (kind of annoying). But, there is a ton to choose from here between the 50+ taps and who knows how many hundreds of bottles.

Pricing is fair for the most part, though on some items I had to kind of roll my eyes...particularly on some of the Belgian imports (Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, Rodenbach) and some of the US sour beers as well.

Regardless of the drawbacks, this is one of the very best beer bars I’ve been to. I could easily see myself being a regular if I was a Seattle resident.

On my previous visit, in 2008, I felt that Brouwer’s Café was the best I had been to in the US, superior even to Hopleaf in Chicago, Blind Tiger in NYC and Brickskeller in DC, so I was anxious to test that feeling on a recent trip to Seattle. And I was not disappointed, the range of beers are still outstanding with about half of the 64 taps offering mainly NW craft beer. Service was fast and very informative, I even got to talk a bit with the daily manager who said he would rather have 40 top notch beers on draft than 100+ with much slower rotation. A man after my heart! The food, as I remembered it from last time, was delicious and filling (huge portions). So, all in all Brouwer’s Café is still my No1 in America. Visited: 2014-07-15.

The best place in Seattle. Impressive taplist and a massive bottle selection with loads of vintages, but unfortunately they don’t sell them to go. Really tasty food and a nice atmosphere. A bit pricey, though, and they don’t sell samplers or 6oz tasters which was a bummer.

This place had really interesting interior. Service was ok. As European ticker, lots of nice local picks on tap list. Food was good too. Number one of Seattle beer places.

Of the Seattle biggies, this is the one that has it all and is a must stop. Combination of super impressive draft list, bottle list and food. The drafts were a nice mixture of local and harder to find stuff from everywhere like a Prairie Spaghetti Western. The bottles were most impressive. Verticals of stuff like parabola, 4 different bottleworks (2 more as Bottleworks), lots of Cantillon. Prices were a bit high but nothing too outrageous. Cool clean atmosphere, I liked the wide open spaces. Service was decent, a bit annoying at either not showing up or coming too often, couldn’t find the balance. Fun place, I’ll be back.
