One amazing beerstore for sure. Not the largest of shops and therefore it won't knock you out if you're looking for a gazillion assortments. But the inventory they do carry is sublime and any number of bottles in stock will be hard to find elsewhere.

Here, they take care of what's presented on the shelf (as others have said, a worker will stroll by every so often to re-align beers on the shelves), they set each refrigerator’s temperature per style, retain low lighting and do not overcrowd space too too much. I particularly like to see that they long ago implemented the notion of stocking a dedicated subset of beers generationally (thinking of Alaskan Smoked Porter '05/'04/'03...and other verticals).

Then contrast the selection with impeccable service. Each time I have visited has been similar. Not bothered with until I bother. Then any bit of information seems to be open. One time shopping with a buddy and just about to head out I popped a few questions to the cashier (and only floorperson). After fifteen or more minutes of rambling I was impressed as we left, my friend chuckling, shaking his head and letting out: “Amazing.” Only for him, wasn’t referring to the place itself, but rather a quip of wonderment at how such a kid that looked to be all of 20 years young could gather that much experience and go on about things that he even couldn’t follow.

Oh, and gotta love the Bottleworks’ own über-worldly bottle cap opener. From another planet, really. Don’t think I could wear this baby out in a lifetime! Check them out if in stock. (1,571 characters)

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. (186 characters)
