Great place in a great neighborhood. My wife found this place after we were strolling the area by foot...I had been meaning to stop by but just never did. I was delighted to find some unique beers on tap, the dude who poured our brews was quite friendly, especially when we told him we had an identical glass head to the one he has displayed with some bottle caps inside. Went during a down time, like I usually do, I just prefer it that way, you get better service and more time & space to browse...duh! Anyhoo, great selection and they let you break open sixers to buy individual 12oz cans or bottles (I like to try as many different beers as possible so this is prime for me and mine). Check out what is lurking in their front window if you stop by. If you are willing to chat to these guys without trying to be a bigger badass, you will enjoy your stay, respect the store and you will be treated the same way...sorry, some of the reviews I read about this place could be said about anywhere in Seattle if you stop by during peak hours. I feel better now and you will after you check this place out, stop by Sock Monster if you do.

Was my first bottle shop I ever went to going on 5 years or so now. Nearly cried when I walked in, seeing all the fancy beers that had been so hard for me to get up until that point. Haven't been in some time now (have a great shop 5mins away from home now) but still has a place at the top in the Seattle area. It has undoubtly changed and gotten a little bigger but they have a wide array, nice people to help you and a few times (I believe there are around doublt digits now) to try some selections as well.
Coming to Seattle? Give Bottleworks a visit (and the surrounding Wallingford/Fremont/Ballard) if you like beer and helpful people to point you in the right direction.

Finally got there. It's great, as expected. Actually better. Great service, bowler bar (and you can buy smaller pours and drink them while you shop), dim lighting to protect the beer, reasonable prices, and fantastic selection including aged vintages of some special brews. Short review, but I think that about covers it.
Go there if you like beer! And, it's in/near Fremont, a cool neighborhood with some other beer destinations such as Fremont Brewing Co.
