Being my first truly dedicated beer store I have visited in the States I'm blown away by the lack of selection we actually have here in Alberta (one of the most beer friendly provinces). This is a store where one can wander aimlessly for hours. The help I received from the staff was forthcoming and knowledgable. I was only in Seattle for the night, and I visited the store three times. The layout was easy to navigate, the lighting kept to a minimum, and practically everything is cooled. The selection of NW craft beer was outstanding and the numerous verticals they carried of many barleywines/old ales was stunning. They had every version of the JW Lees barrel aged 2005 (Port, Sherry etc.) You could easily spend a small Arabian fortune in this place. I will be back.

Great selection of beers. Naturally lots of fremont brewing stuff. However, the guy working the counter (was wearing glasses) was terribly dismissive and just not a pleasure to speak to.

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.
