This was probably the highlight of beer establishments visited on my short Seattle trip.

Atmosphere was a bit uppity, high ceilings, alot of people drinking Lindeman's and fancy decor was a little too fancy for me.

I tried 5 draft beers and all were exactly as they should be and served in proper glassware. Clean beer all around.

Very friendly bartender, who actually recognized me and came up to me two days later at the Washington cask festival. Very prompt, knowledgable service.

Selection was, well like nothing I've ever seen before. I literally have never seen so many taps, and the bottle selection nearly made me weep. The 50 or so taps were a dream come true. Half Belgian, many of which were stuff I can't get in Michigan, most of the rest were PNW beers. The bottle selection was simply incredible. Indescribable to those who haven't seen it. I couldn't believe some of the Cantillon vintages. Just incredible.

We were there late, so didn't try the food, but a quick glance at the menu indicated that they had some nice Belgian dishes.

This place is pretty pricey, but just an amazing beer experience to have in Seattle. I highly recommend non-natives check this place out.

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.
