Stopped by BottleWorks on vacation to Seattle. Had to limit myself since I was flying back, but man was this place awesome. Deep building is dimly-lit (I assume to protect the beer), and is jam-packed with excellent brews. The selection was phenomenal, I walked out with some Stone, Port Brewing, Bear Republic, Pike, Boulder Beer Co., Elysian, Hair of the Dog, Full Sail, Speakeasy, and a few other gems, including an '03 SN Bigfoot. The quality was exceptional, and all beers were properly stored and dated.

Service was friendly and courteous, although the first guy I talked to didn't quite understand when I asked him how widespread the availability of Stone 12th Anniversary was. Granted, that's a bit of a nitpick... Also, I was a bit disappointed they had run out of Hair of the Dog Adam, and didn't carry their Blue Dot. Other than that, a fantastic store that I hope to return to one day.

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.

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.
