WARNING I just wanted to let everyone know that i went to mapquest by clicking on the map link on the left side of the screen. It actually sent me to olive street which is about 5 minutes away from the actual bar. We eventually made it to the bar and it was awesome. It was mostly belgians but a good selection of local barleywines and imperial stouts There was also a cask elysian stout which was excellent.
Nice variety of Belgian beers on tap. Itís hard to complain about $4 12oz pours of La Folie. Great selection of Belgian beers and served with care and attention to condition in the proper glassware at a reasonable price. Crowd is a bit Bohemian, but it adds to the atmosphere and mystique of the place. Well worth the visit, and seems to thrive quite well as a neighborhood hang-out. If only more neighborhood hang-outs were like this... Visited more than once, and would definitely make a point to visit again if in the area.
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.
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.
