5/5  rDev +7.8%
quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 5 | $$$

Really an exceptional place -- we happened in there on a day when the master brewer from Rochefort was there, so we had a one dollar tasting that covered Rochefort 6, 8, and 10.

Everyone was friendly, and seemed very knowledgeable. Selection was quite genuinely exceptional. I saw several beers there that I have never seen anywhere else. Prices there are typically a little higher than other places, which is pretty typical for a specialty shop, but they can get away with it because they have such a difficult to beat selection.

It's a long way out of my way, so I won't be going back often, but I'll probably be back at some point.

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.

Awesome selection at 99 Bottles! As other commented, staff isn't the most welcoming. You shop at your own pace but they are nice. Wish they offered more growler fill options. They offer tastings but I've never attended. This is your best option for finding craft beer south of Seattle.
