--I made the drive to 99 Bottles w/ a friend of mine while we both decided, somewhat spur of the moment, to sing 99 Bottles as we drove. Due to where we lived we got to -79 Bottles of Beer on the Walls after getting to Zero. This friend of mine had just decided to try to start drinking some different beers than the typical mass produced/marketed beers out there and we were both amazed by what this store had to offer.

Having just yesterday gone to Bottleworks I wasn't sure if 99 Bottles would live up to my expectations. All I can say is...WOW! The manager was very friendly and gladly answered any of our questions while making some great recommendations. The store it's self was very clean and well kept, door upon door of beer heaven. A very nice large variety and the store gets new types in weekly making it a place you can always check out to find new drinks.

Having gone here and being so thrilled w/ the place my friend and I decided to embark upon a mission. 1 Beer a day until we try all of the bottles. Only time will tell if we can keep true to this mission but just doing basic math it will take us over 3 years...so we may just try and sample our way as we go :) One thing is for sure....We will be making stops at least 2 a month to this great store

Edit: I'm updating my review after making another stop at 99 Bottles. This place is simply amazing. I can't stress this enough, if your in Washington OR just passing through....stop by 99 Bottles. They are always getting new stock in and just have great friendly staff who really care about what they do. There's no other place to buy beer for me...this is it. I've now taken a great long time friend and my fiancee here and they both are amazed at the place and will be repeat customers. Keep up the damn good work

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.

A great beer store on the south end of Federal Way. Selection is very good, ranging from the local PNW limited releases, to Belgians, to Germans, to easter european. Staff is knowledgable and friendly and always hasa suggestions for whatever style you're looking for. Prices seem on par with other specialty beer shops in the Seattle area. They have a punchcard system so when you buy 99 bottles you get a free tshirt, or something like that. Also, they have tastings in store every month usually with a rep of the resepective brewery.

Overall a great shop for the south end, good location, great service and excellent selection.

This store is located in a new strip mall. Chain stores and fast food restaurants of all types surround it.

The store itself is very new and clean. Glass cooler doors line the entire left wall as you enter, too many to count. More beers and glassware on room temp. shelves on back wall and rear right wall. Large service counter to the right of the door.

Hundreds of beers to choose from. Saw a few beers that I hadn't seen much before like Gordon from Oscar Blues and a Belgian or two my Belgian loving friend commented on not seeing usually.

The service was friendly and I saw the staff answering customer questions.

Prices seemed in line and reflected the cost to the store. Example: Bear Republic is $3.50 per bomber where as Great Divide is $6.50.

They also do tastings and due to whatever law is applying in this situation they are cost friendly. $1 for the tasting and you get 4 2oz. tastes. So 8oz. for $1. I haven't attended a tasting.
