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.

Finally got there. It's great, as expected. Actually better. Great service, bowler bar (and you can buy smaller pours and drink them while you shop), dim lighting to protect the beer, reasonable prices, and fantastic selection including aged vintages of some special brews. Short review, but I think that about covers it.

Go there if you like beer! And, it's in/near Fremont, a cool neighborhood with some other beer destinations such as Fremont Brewing Co.

This is a beer store that should top your list if heading to Seattle. The guys there were very helpful and the selection was great. Walked away with a few beers I've been wanting to try and a few suggestions from the staff. A must stop for out of towers, especially Canadians.
