Excellent beer at impossibly affordable prices. Have tried several things here that I’ve never noticed elsewhere in Seattle. Casks on Thursdays. Be sure to note the specific glassware drawn next to each tap selection on the chalkboard.

I was pleasantly surprised by this place and I was already expecting something pretty decent. The ambiance is about what I imagined: dimly lit, hip beer drinkers, trendy music. Very comfortable inside. The selection was impressive. While not vast, it’s not just run of the mill Belgian stuff. They had a few sours and a few rarer things along with the typical high quality Belgians one could expect from such a place. I was blown away by the prices. They only carry beers that most other places are charging $7-$9 for, but most everything was $6 or $7 for a proper pour. I’ve never seen Duchesse de Borgougne for $6 anywhere before, let alone in an expensive city like Seattle. This is a great place to come enjoy a beer.

Wow, I was expecting something else based on all the raves I have heard. This really is a dive bar that serves absolute top-notch beers. The bathroom is a nightmare, but, if you want the very best beer on tap, this is the place to go. Added plus: They clean the lines between EACH beer. Any time I am in town, I would definitely stop by for a beer.

A little hidden Belgian bar in plain site. No big flashy sign out front ... just some steamed up windows. Great chill place to hang out and grab a great Belgian brew at very reasonable prices. $1-2 less than other bars around the area. They specialize in Belgian brews as well as some local NW stuff. Very decent selection, wonderful atmosphere... no blaring music (no music at all actually), games to play, nice ppl.

Small or intimate. It seems like there are a lot of locals. It reminds me of a local bar that you might discover in Europe somewhere. No frills but the selection in my opinion is impressive.

On a quick trip up to Seattle a friend and I stopped by this Seattle landmark for Beer Geeks. I had heard for quite some time I need to stop in and check this place out. The sign is hidden behind a tree and once you have found it and found a place to park your almost there. You walk in and you find a Belgian beer bar that was an old bar that just was filled with character. There where two huge chalk boards one with the tap list. The other was filled with every can or bottle they where selling. There where about 20 different tap and about 75-100 awesome Belgian/Strong ales on the list. Beers that I have never heard of nor seen and I have seen quite a few. I had some of the best Belgian beers I have ever had. The place was filled and it was a Tuesday night. Now they do not have food so if you need anything you need to bring it in yourself. This was a great stop and I must say I am glad I finally made it to this Seattle Beer Geek landmark. You have to say you have been to the Stumbling Monk.

The draft selection is typically great. Sometimes they have run out of a beer or two and there is a bit less to choose from, but that attests to the freshness of their ever-revolving selection. The draft choices are always excellent, there are many bottles, and the prices are great (uncharacteristic of Seattle). Stumbling Monk has a much more pleasant atmosphere than Brouwers (and much better value). Just be prepared to leave drunk.

Super little corner beer bar that does just that, great beer. They’ve always got an interesting selection of Belgian beers on tap, and a wide range of bottles. Friendly and knowledgable staff, cozy place.

I love this place. My only problem, is that I now live entirely too close to it....
