Kind of out of the way, not a real attractive place. The selection is mostly Belgium style beers, so not a big variety, but they do have a consistent line up of great beers. Bottle list is nothing special. Honestly, some of the stuff I’ve found here is awesome. Great place.

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.

One of my favorites in Seattle. A little bar in Capitol Hill, on Olive Way. Fantastic selection, particularly of Belgian beers. A must-visit location.

An easy 1 mile (uphill) walk from my hotel in downtown Seattle. A small corner dive bar with dark lighting, low (or no?) music,, with limited seating (maybe 6 seats at the bar, a few booths and tables. A very comfortable, worn feel (pretty much everything in the place was damaged or broken) but it felt welcoming. One bartender who was helpful and friendly. Excellent prices, starting at $4, with around 10 on tap and a nice bottle selection. I went twice to the Stumbling Monk because I enjoyed it so much.

Finally caught the Monk when it was open (evenings only). Great atmosphere, if a bit run down with a small toilet and scary electrics. A narrow but well-chosen selection of regional, Belgian and Belgian-style ales on tap and a great bottle selection. Service is excellent, as is beer knowledge among staff and patrons. We’ll be back!

Stopped by on New Years day. Man, this place had maybe 10 people in it. The bar had no one; well, except my brother and I. Anyways, they had a solid draft selection. Obviously, with a place like Brouwers you’re going to have a huge selection, but almost every draft here seems calculated. The bartender was a soft-spoken guy, and very prompt. The ambiance is nice. My kind of place where they obviously don’t give a shit if you rough-up their stuff a wee-bit. The prices were nice. I had a large New Belgium glass full of Lips of Faith for $4.50 (or, $4.00). There are some shitheads that visit, but that’s to be expected in a neighborhood where shitheads are a dime-a-dozen.

This place is great. The two times i’ve been here it wasnt too busy (weeknights) and i was able to have a good conversation. Dark, moody, divey with a nice selection. One of the best drinking spots in Seattle (though maybe not the most exciting)

2010-07. An interesting introduction to Seattle, on the way over we passed what may have been been a drug deal by sketchy "White Pride" tattoo guy. Window on the street makes for some awesome people watching. Bartender seems to have a case of the surly at first, but based on the yawning later I suspect he was just tired. Tap list is pretty solid but not amazing. Seems like the kind of place I would enjoy spending a Sunday afternoon or a boozy evening with friends, but for a quiet mid-week drink as a visitor it was kind of disappointing.

Dive bar vibe with a beer bar selection, albeit centered on Belgian-style brews. A fun place to drink. Had Consecration and Stille Nacht on tap when we were there, among other delights.

Can be impossible to find a seat on weekend nights, but a great place to hang if you do. Beer list doesn’t change much but tap list is cheap and priced well to bottleshops.
