The best beer stores I have come across in The PNW are the ones that look a little odd and dont' have all the fancy trappings. ( eg John's in Portland and Brewery Creek in Vancouver). This is a smallish store in a neighbourhood between Freemont and the U district. The lighting is very low especially in the coolers but you realize this is to protect the beers from UV damage. The selection is well considered and there are some real gems. This is actually an easier store to shop than the huge John's in Portland. The staff are up on their beer and great to talk to. Good selection of free beer papers and coasters. Great store and most definately worth the visit.

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.
