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.

first time out in seattle...first stop i visited. could have spent the whole day there. sat w/ the wife to have a few on tap selections. being the awesome woman she is, she blatantly noted we'd never have this type of selection at home (que to empy the wallet). had multiple conversations w/ staff and random customers...all very friendly and knowledgable. left w/ over a case of local goods and a smile. the wine store next door sells travel packaging kits so everything made it back to new england unscathed. no question this is a must stop!

Bottleworks is one of, if not the most famous bottle shops in Seattle. As a visitor, it is the only bottle shop I would've known about before looking at reviews for places in Seattle. They had a great selection with good prices. The selection wasn't significantly better than most of the good shops in Seattle, but you can find some of their older anniversary beers available, which was pretty cool. My biggest complaint would be the size of the shop and the darkness of the store. It was often difficult to see into the cooler because of the lighting. Obviously, you don't want the shop lit up like Times Square, but I'm not certain they should be impairing visibility as much as they currently are doing. All in all, a must stop for any BA in the Seattle area.

Nice little shop that fills growlers and has solid selection. Lots of west coast stuff, snagged some Helldorado while there, though I was hoping for a bit more. Granted, they did have a bottle of RR Deviation for $120 that was tempting me pretty hard. Nice service, and overall neat spot. I'm sure I'd be in plenty if I lived in the area.

One of my favorite beer shops in Seattle. Excellent selection of beers including some hard to find ones and the service has always been top notch every time I have been there

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.

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