Finally was able to make a visit to Seattle's Mecca of beer. I can report it's every bit as good as everyone says. Found all sorts of goodies, mostly in 22oz bombers. When first entering, the extent of the low lighting can come as a shock, and I had to give my eyes a moment to adjust - but once they adjusted, they were very happy eyes, I can tell you!
Prices were steeper than my local beerstores, but not to a ridiculous extent. In fact, 12oz bottle prices were about the same as what I was used to. Lots of glassware and t-shirts available, but I was there strictly for beer.
Service was unobtrusive. I don't need someone to hold my hand, and when I asked questions they were thoughtfully answered.
Outstanding store that is run with quality in mind. I'd come back in a heartbeat next time I'm in town.

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.
