I have to say I was a little disappointed on first walking in. The coolers seemed relatively empty and the staff seemed way to0 busy and aloof to deal with me.
Making my way back to the growler station and finding out that they could serve on-premise changed all that ... as did a pint of PtE. With that in my hand, the staff seemed to open up a bit more. That also gave me more time to examine the entire store.
The coolers were actually a bit of a mess and it took me a bit to locate several things I was looking for. There was a good bit of open stock in the middle of the floor to go through as well.
Several nice local finds, but lots of imports here. Lots. Huge Belgian and German sections. For an out-of-towner, that was not too appealing but for a local I can see the draw.
The growler bar was very impressive, with PtE headlining nine taps.
Wish I had this place in NC. Can't wait til we change our laws to allow growler stations.

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.
