Dark is an understatement for this place. Not a cheerful place to hang about in or browse, particularly with heavy metal blaring in the background. You can't read the labels or the tags unless you're 3 inches from the glass. Prices are reasonable except some of the aged beers. I actually expected a little more of a selection. There were a lot of European beers but otherwise there was a lot of empty space but certainly not much more than my local bottle shops. A couple of interesting beers on tap to try but I really didn't feel like staying. So unless I'm looking for a rare or aged beer I really won't be stopping here again anytime soon.

World Class Bottle shop. Always something bottle conditioned on the shelf.

Amazing selection. Always have something they pull up from the cellar that completely blows your mind.

Bottleworks is a Seattle beer institution, but they have some stiff competition these days. Where they shine is the depth of their cellar and their special relationships with breweries up and down the West Coast (and probably beyond). Their anniversary events and beers are legendary. I'm not crazy about the dark, cave-like atmosphere (or the choice of music most days) and their 21+ policy is a bit inconvenient if I want to just run in and grab a few bottles but have the kid in tow. But if a certain beer comes out you can almost be assured that BW will have it -- and also that they'll likely sell out before any other store in town. Staff is helpful if you need help. Prices are on par with other places.
