A bit tricky to find but certainly worth the effort. The tap selection was great and reasonably priced. Impressive bottle list but to big of a markup IMO. Service was a bit spotty, flagging a waitress or bar tender was a challenge but once you got one your order came quickly. Big, dark, and roomy inside with an interesting industrial feel without coming across as sterile or pretentious.

I only like this place better than Uber because of the bigger selection. The service is good, but not as good as Uber, as it is not as personal. Bigger bar = more people. Interesting decor inside, it is somewhat industrial and new age at the same time perhaps. I like it because of the beer, and if you are in good company it can be a great place.

The good: huge number of taps, great festivals, often good (if highly inconsistent) Belgian food, dollar-off power hour that makes most schooners practically free. The bad: post-frat scene on weekends, no kids allowed, and the service. While the service can sometimes be really good, it can also really suck depending on who you get for your server. Points of suckery include (1) treating my designated driver like shit because she’s not drinking, (2) getting the facts all wrong about various beers while acting haughty as a French sommelier, (3) generally refusing to give me tasters even when I’m spending $40-50 on beers there, (4) being too busy talking bikes with their hipster friends to ever consider that someone at our table might actually want a second beer, (5) telling everyone at my table that Dupont Avril is shit because its low ABV. Learn about something other than west coast IIPAs, buddy, or STFU.

Kind of generic on the outside, very cool without being stuffy on the inside. Absolutely HUGE selection, and it seemed that the taps were more Northwest focused and the bottles were more Belgian. Great place.

This place is very un-assuming from the point of view of 35th. The Phinney Ave North side has a big hefty wood door that is easily three to four inches thick. Very cool. Entering it feels almost cave like yet industrial setting that actually is very comfy. This place looks stunning inside with exposed steel and I-Beams, rock covered wall on two of the four walls (big boulder looking rocks) and cubby hole looking booth seating. The bar seats (not stools) are super comfy. The bar is a good sixty feet long from end to end, is three inches thick, three feet wide, dark wood and warn silky smooth. Impressive looking. You could easily miss the giant round sky light above the center of the space. I didn’t notice it for at least 45 minutes. They have 60+ taps and three beer engines. What I really like seeing is the more than dozen local NW tap offerings. The bottle list is extensive. They have three pages of Belgium offerings, vintage stuff and the possibility for expensive verticals of a couple beers. I could really spend all day here. In fact I skipped other venues because I was having too much fun drinking this place in. I had some of the food and it was very good. Some of what others were eating smelled divine too. I’m definitely coming back here the next time I’m in the area.

Lots of steel, concrete, and wood make for one interesting place. Loads of taps, with a large reach-in, and a full bar. Matt Vern appoointed the place beyond the 9’s with the cold water pre-pour riinse and head trimming action. This is a beer snob’s paradise! The kitchen is decent, the menu a bit sparce. On the pricey side of the spectrum, even for Fremont. One of the few great watering holes that appeal to singles. Rent a limo for their Hard Liver Barleywine Festival, they sport SO many that driving home legally is unlikely. Do NOT miss this place if you are coming to visit our fair city, and have a drink, good luck choosing just three.

Happened to visit during the hopfest. Had about 40 different hopped up beers, all for $4 a pint. I had a delicious lamb burger and a pint of Oskar Blues Gordon. Delicious. Also, I had to order a HOTD Adam off their 5 page bottle list. Great atmosphere, owned by bottleworks, they did everything right. Highly suggest this place.

Visited on a weekday around noon. Huge place with a long bar and lots of seating. It was nearly empty when we visited. We ate out on the patio and had lunch and a few beers. I didn’t count, but it seemed to me they had significantly less than 64 taps. That said, the selection was pretty good and they had a good number of bottles. I had a De Proef Saison Imperiale and a Duchesse De Bourgogne Sour Red. Wish I could go back to try more. The service was excellent as was the food.

Beer heaven. Great Belgium beer and food, which is also fantastic. I have turned at least 10 people on to this place this year. It gets crowded around 9-10 Friday or Saturday. Everything I have tried on the menu is great. The draft American beer is also amazing. The best bar in Seattle.

This place is a dream come true and a must visit for any beer lover’s trip to the Pacific NW. The food was fantastic - the homemade Hot Link sausage was absolutely divine, showing up even the exquisite grilled duck and succulent strip steak that also graced my plate. The beer list was also incredible, and for the big spender, they even had bottles of ’00 Lou Pepe Geueze on the bottle list. The interior was tastefully done, service was great, tap selection adequate, bottle list impressive, glassware done marvelously, and food incredible. If more fine dining moved in this direction, this world would be a far more heavenly place. Met and exceeded all expectations.
