I have to mostly agree with the recent review by cbros of Bottleworks. I, too, came here expecting so much after all I've read about the place; I guess it's inevitable that I was to be disappointed.
Lots of great beers, but lots of empty spaces. I had no problem finding stuff to buy to take to the hotel room to drink over the next few days, but there were several good beers they didn't have that I was easily able to find at other beer stores. And the staff was quite dismissive... they blared their music while we shopped, but never offered to help, other than getting us a beer on tap when we approached the bar.
My other real complaint is concerning the prices. I checked my receipt after we left the store (unfortunately); there were many beers that didn't match up with the prices advertised on the coolers... some were cheaper, some more expensive. Not a big deal as I'm sure it evened out, but I would expect a little more consistency at a place that seems to pride itself on its service and selection.
Don't get me wrong, still an awesome beer store. But I think I preferred 99 Bottles in Federal Way.
