What more can be said about this place ? This is every beer geeks Valhalla !!
Housed in a small , dark, unassuming building this place is packed wall to wall with beer, ONLY beer ( ok, they do sell chocolate and beer glasses up front.) Advertising over 400 varities, it seems more like a thousand. Most of the beers are in coolers, arranged by country of origin. My favorite cooler doors are the two at the back of the store that house vintage bottlings of Hair of the Dog, Rogue, Sierra Nevada, Fish Tail , and other beverages worthy of cellaring. Home to Laconner Brewings dry hopped IPA.
The staff here is fairly beer savvy, hell, they've got the coolest job in town.
The only bummer here is parking is scarce, especially in mid -afternoon .
Every big city should have a store like this !

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.
