Don’t let them tell you that Brouwer’s is the #1place for beer in Seattle. For me that is Naked City. Very friendly waitstaff. Great ambience; one half is a place to sit with couches and you can watch great old movies on the big screen, with subtitles. Excellent beer selection of both in house and rotating taps from other breweries. This is the place for me in Seattle.
We stopped in here on a Friday to start a Beer Hike and dove right in to the sampler. The bartender was friendly, knowledgeable and offered my wife multiple samples till she found the right cider that morning. They have a lot of house-brewed beers on and a surprisingly large selection of guest beers. House beers were all good to better than good, IMO. We had a basket of fries that were on point. A really nice option for some pints.
Packed in place. Great service. Excellent fries. Wonderful beer list with about 10 of their own--a wide variety from sours to session to barelywine-- and 10 guests. mostly regional. The screening room, their other half, was closed--the place has a thematic interest in older movies.
Good location in Greenwood, next door to Flying Bike, and walking distance from Chuck’s on 85th. I’m very impressed with this place, and continue to recommend it to people who are visiting the Seattle area. Dozens of taps, with at least a dozen guest taps. Impressive food menu, that shys away from the fancy stuff, and sticks to what I enjoy, which is burgers and sandwiches and such. Good beer, good food, and a huge outdoor beer garden. Always enjoy coming here.
A nice large tap room with a large bar and some indoor seating but the kicker is a nice outdoor area. Server was happy to talk about beers and was prompt with everything. A great number of their own beers on tap and samplers were available as well. Food was very good with a variety of sandwiches available. Prices seemed fair for the area. A pretty great taproom.
An odd bistro split into a sports bar? One half has a huge projector the other is a large bar and I can’t wrap my head around what they are trying to be. Trendy menu, but then a ton of burgers. Food was interesting, but overpriced for what it is was. Beer was all over the map, from bad to good and lots of selection. Guest taps and tasting flights make up for everything else. Lots of ticks, but nothing really worth the trip.
Great neighborhood brew pub with nice (if pretty standard) pub food. A great backroom for watching the big Seahawks games. Large and constantly changing house beer selection with some interesting guest handles as well. Beers are very hit or miss in my book but it is worth visiting.
