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.

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.
