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.

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.

World Class Bottle shop. Always something bottle conditioned on the shelf.

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

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.
