Noisy, crowded, never enough seatting. A variety of rare and intersting beers offered. Itís almost a shack with some taps, but it really works for it.

WARNING; The address is wrong It is 1635 Olive Way. My friend and I found out the hard way. We went to Elysian Fields then thought we would walk across downtown to 635 Olive Way, only to find out that doesnít exist. At least the walk sobered us up for this really cool place. We arrived about 1am on a Wed night and the place was pretty happening. About 12 taps going with really obscure stuff. Prices are really good. I like, I like. Would go back and if lived in Seattle would make it a regular. Note, not everything is Belgian.

Great and cozy little corner tav, especially on a cold windy night late in November. And you donít need to like Belgians to come here. Easy going, always an empty chair. They started out as a bottle store and you can still get any of their selection of bottled beers to go. Not sure how many but itís more than a dozen. Some food would help but there are several food opportunities within easy walking distance.

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

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

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.

Great place to find Belgians on draft--especially hard-to-find Belgians. Proper glassware, nice view of the Space Needle, very little seating (~6 tables; stools at beer bar and window bar). Parking is truly non-existent within two blocks. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Canít beat draft Allagash in a cozy environment. Just plan on other arrangements for food; it *is* a good sit-and-hang-out place for couples and smaller groups apart from having no kitchen.

Found after an ill-fated first attempt courtesy of Mapquest. I was pretty much stumbling when I got here after the Hard Liver Festival, but they still had plenty of stuff that I couldnít say no to. Fairly dark. Low music and a first rate beer selection, both taps and bottles. Friendly staff and clientele. Not a huge number of taps, but nothing that wasnít quality. Another of these fantastic small Seattle beer bars that make the three hour drive down absolutely worth it.

Dark corner bar. Small, sparse place built almost strictly for drinking it seems. Laid back atmosphere. Many Belgians to choose from. Friendly staff. Real late night clientele too. Apparently it doesnít even get going until around 10.

I am not sure if they were hiding beers form me or what , I wish they had more of a selection but it is a small place and definitely on point. I usually leave the place referring to it as the drunken monkey! or is that me? anyhow you couold drive by this place 10 times looking for it and miss it. Best to park and walk Very awesome Place.
