Brouwer's Cafe

Bar in Green Lake & Fremont

Rather than producing its own beer, Brouwer's stocks the brews of others – lots of them. Indeed, it, arguably, offers the finest beer selection in the city: an astounding 64 brews on tap along with over 400 bottled varieties. Its collection of Scotch and American whiskey is no slouch, either.

Rarely short of a bevy of drinkers propping up its bar, the establishment is revered by beer aficionados and neophytes alike for its warm, non-pretentious pub atmosphere and simple Belgian-influenced food, including pretzels, frites, steamed mussels and sausages ($7 to $16).
