The Collective On Tap opened in Woodinville in 2012. Located in a business/light-industrial complex on the edge of bustling downtown Woodinville, The Collective offers 47 beers and ciders on tap, local spirits, comfort food, televisions and a lovely environment in which to enjoy them all. We also offer growler fills. The location used to be the home of Tot Spot Cafe, but now offers fun for grownups only. Once an indoor play space for kids, it is now an indoor play space for beer lovers – a 21+ establishment.
The two minds behind The Collective On Tap are Kat Turcotte and Chris Burgmeier. Kat was the owner of the Tot Spot and one day decided to change directions. That is when she decided to pursue a true passion: beer. Instead of opening a brewery of her own, she elected to create a great place for people to experience the beers they loved.
Big screen TVs for watching the game, combine with a magnificent, rotating tap list and rich, savory treats. A few examples of the food include candied bacon, chips with Gorgonzola dip, homemade chili, and more. You will also find big tables that invite communal drinking, WiFi, and stylish and subdued paisley upholstery. The bar is big. Who doesn’t like a lot of bar seating? Gentlemen, when you visit the restroom be sure to say hello to Sir Robin. You’ll see what I mean once you’re there.
There is something very comfortable about The Collective On Tap. From the moment you walk through the door, it just feels right. As far as the beer is concerned, even the most ardent beer lover will not be disappointed. Kat and Chris take sourcing beer very seriously. Actually, they take everything about beer very seriously.
Getting there: From the west (Seattle, Bothell, etc), head east on Hwy 522 towards Woodinville. Take the first Woodinville exit (131st Ave NE). Turn right towards downtown Woodinville. Turn left at the first light (NE 177th St). Go a couple blocks and turn left on 134th. The Collective On Tap will be on your right. Remember, this is a business park/light-industrial complex.
