Holy Wow. This is one of the most well thought out beer destinations I have ever seen. The setup of the cooler is the wet dream of any beer bar owner. There is obvious mad respect for beer here. It is a rather large place, which isn’t my favorite kind of setting (it makes it rather impersonal), but if you have to go big, you should go big like this. I honestly don’t have anything to say other than go here if you visit Seattle. Be aware that it's the kind of place that gets really crowded and attracts a lot of novices, so go on a Wednesday afternoon if you really want to appreciate this.

I went to Brouwers today, finally. I feel it is ridiculous that as a Seattle-area citizen I had not been there before.

Atmosphere here is fantastic, a beer lover's dream. It's basement-dark inside with all dark wood installations, and the whole back wall behind the main bar is refrigerator cases full of their amazing bottle selection. Sixty beautiful taps line up to fulfill your every desire; I could probably just hang out inside and look at the place as an end in its own.

I had an Avec les Bons Voeux on draft in an Avec les Bons Voeux glass, and a Snipes Mountain saison in an appropriate saison glass (you don't see those around too much). Service was excellent, as the bartenders there seem to really know their beer. Beer selection focuses on Belgium and Washington State, but there are a few other craft beers on tap, mostly from the western U.S.

I had the croque monsieur with frites and was not disappointed. I will definitely be returning here to sample more of their extensive tap list and try some Belgian stew.
