I took a short drive from Fort Lewis to Tacoma with a friend after learning about 99 bottles. Upon entry the line of beer coolers immediately gets your attention. The place is set up very nicely and is appealing to the eye. The wooden shelves with singles and six packs are well stocked. The experience was a little overwhelming with such a great selection. I found myself in a state of vertigo after I returned to the place I entered a few times to review the options.

The service was friendly and I couldn't find anything out of line as far as pricing goes. I chose a Caracole and an old chub stick lip moisturizer to go along with my liquid purchases. I was highly impressed and will most certainly be returning the next time I am in the Tacoma area.

Recently moved to the Tacoma area and this is obviously THE place for outstanding craft beer. The rating is well deserved.

I haven't lived in the area that long but I'm guessing if it's bottled 99 bottles gets it.

The selection is outstanding, the layout is fantastic and the service friendly and knowledgeable. It actually reminds me a lot of West Lake View Liquors in Chicago with the wood shelving, hand written tags, and beers that you don't expect to see peering out at you around every corner.

What's extra cool is that they do growler fills and seemingly always have something from Boneyard on tap (though truth be told, I'm not really a fan). Still, this is easily my go to bottle shop.

Well done 99 bottles.

I don't live in Washington, but my son goes to college in Seattle. When picking him up from school, we had dinner with family in Federal and happened to see 99 Bottles. Nirvana! I had only ten minutes before closing, but they provided great recommendations on local beers. Wonderful selection. Clean. Well laid out. Just wish they had one in Bay Area!

I've been down to 99 Bottles two or three times and they are a great little bottle shop. Huge selection, clean space, helpful staff, reasonable prices. I think some beers hang around there longer than other spots. Overall a must-visit if you're anywhere near Federal Way.
