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.

....A Beer and Broad lovers dream! I went there with my wife and her friend and boy friend. We get there and theres no tables cause its pretty busy on Saturdays. The guy and me went to the Bar to get some beer and the girlds waited by the Couches. There are 2 really fine girls there just waiting to get into something I guess. I order 2 Delerium Nocturnum beers and the B tender hands the bottles over and the girls like the pink elephant on the front so they start chatting with us. We flirted for a bit and then headed to our ladies with the beers. We sat and ate and got drunk and ordered more beer and then saw the girls again and gave them a quick wink whiched pissed them off cause we were already with somebody. Truely a nice place with a decent guy to girl ratio and excellen and I mean excellent beer and food selection. I highly rate this bar because of its selection/Ambiance and the fact that I probably would have got some if single because of a beautiful beer bottle! Thanks Brouwers....and by the way where were you 10 years ago when I really needed you!

I really, really want to give Brouwers a higher score, but the service has just killed me. I asked for the bill 3 times last time we went before I finally received it. I finished writing my complaint and then saw gratuity was automatically included. We were a party of 3 and happened to start talking to the poeple next to us. Friggin obscene. HOWEVER, their taps are amazing, and while one might find some other locales with a few more, I doubt you’d find much with competing quality.
