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.

Visited many times when I was pretty much living in Seattle. Great beer bar with over 60+ rotating taps and an impressive beer list of locals and rarities. Selection is outstanding from locals to great classics. Food is also pretty darn good as well. Prices are reasonable except maybe some of the vintage beers which are always hard to price these days with supply and demand. Overall, a world class bar with great food that is a must for any beer nerd finding themselves in the Great NW.

Great tap selection. Good food. Not busy but bar service was good. Definitely good value for the selection which was heavy on barley wines -a week after a barley wine event.

Visited here for the 3rd time on November 2nd. There’s not a ton left to say about the place, but on my visit, the tap list skewed towards out of state rather than WA beers and that was disappointing. My wife enjoyed her mussels - which took her back to Belgium - and though I enjoyed the stoofvles, I found it savory rather than traditionally sweet. Still tasty, but not of the transporting variety.
Definitely on the pricier side, and it seems like a place to visit when they have a festival rather than on a Saturday when it’s rather low key with slow service.

Definitely set up as the premier craft beer bar in the city, but it never got very crowded and always seemed a bit dead :/ We went here three different times and had decent service. For being some of the only people in the bar you’d think we’d get the royal treatment. They excel though at fries and dipping sauces. The other food I wasn’t wild about. My partner’s lamb burger was phenomenal. My mussels were very disappointing: uncooked bok choy, no salt, uncooked carrot slices, not a flavorful curry broth. Thankfully that dish was a special and I hope it never comes back. Bottle list is extensive, but focuses 5/8ths on Belgian stuff. We did see some older Firestone Walker anniversary, and FW PNC at $30; which was a solid price. Did see one Upright bottle, The Clash, that I hadn’t had before. It wasn’t so great, but was priced lower. Draft list here was extensive with what looks like some gig with Shelton Brothers scoring them a few kegs of De Ranke XXX Bitter, which was awesome. The tap list was split up by State and Country, and surprisingly there were only 10 or so taps dedicated to local WA state beers, which was disappointing. Overall, it’s an awesome bar but for food stick to burger and fries and for beer you will find a better selection of local beers almost anywhere. It’s the obscure Belgian, Danish, Norwegian stuff that is exclusive. Bottle list is large, found some California beers that I can’t even find living in California. They don’t do sampler flights, which was annoying -___-

Stoked to have made it to this Mecca. Truly nothing to look at from the outside. Inside, it’s way more cozy. Stone walls, quaint tables, small booths and a stage. Seats upstairs that peer down on the long bar below. The wall filled with taps, bottles peaking out from behind. Extensive. Service was attentive but a bit absent-minded. Overall, a really good experience.
