This place would rate very highly except for the dramatic Eastside markup.

Very clean, well-tended shop, with a good selection. Friendly, knowledgeable guy manning the till was homebrewer sympathetic (asked about getting empty case boxes to which he kindly obliged).

Prices are outrageously high though. In many cases $2 more per bomber than the same beer at Whole Foods less than a mile away. A whopping $17.99 for Rogue XS beers (and I thought $14-15 a pop was alot!).

So, except for a place to pick up boxes for homebrew or an occasion rarity that I may not be able to find elsewhere, will definitely not be shopping here regularly.

Dropped by while driving through Redmond, it's hard to find amid the tangle web of one way streets -- tucked away in a plaza. Spacious place, all the beer coolers are on wheels, strange, made for a noisy atmosphere. Had all the usual imports you would expect to find but overall I didn't see anything out of the ordinary ('cept maybe all the expensive beers from Japan). It's about 1/3 wine and 2/3 beer. Some beer glassware and mead too. I know if you live out there it's about the only place like it, but it's nothing too special.

One of the better beer stores I’ve had the chance to visit. Almost all the beers are in coolers with low UV light. This is a big plus for me because some of the beers purchased will find a new home in my cellar. Lizzie was very friendly and helpful in helping me find what I wanted while also pointing out some of her favorites. I like it when someone’s not afraid to share their opinion. Who knows you may find your new favorite beer? Anyways speaking of beer they had a very good selection, Port, Lost Abbey, Stone, Flying Dog, Hair of the Dog, Allagash, Avery, DFH, to name a few of the top of my head. From what I could tell they also had a decent wine selection. I’m not big into the wines but they had a tasting the Saturday I was there and it seemed to bring in the people. So it must be good. Anyways all said and done I will go back to this store anytime I’m in the area.

Doug and Lizzie have a fantastic store that is much needed on the eastside. 750+ beers--I'm a Saison fan and always walk away satisfied. I've recently moved to Kennewick and have to resort to stopping in once a month or so to stock up (Kennewick is woefully lacking decent brew). This store easily gives the Seattle stores a run for their money--no need to deal with downtown traffic--that's worth everything to me. In short, great store, super selection and you can always get great advice on new beers. Definitely try the weekly "tasting" events.

I didn't know Disneyland exsisted on the Eastside! No really, Doug and Lizzie have put together a really nice specialty beer and wine store. Being a beer lover, I haven't focused on the wine, and the selection is right up there on par with Bottleworks. My wife and I visit often and Doug and Lizzie are more than willing to make suggestions. Examples we have picked up: Flying Dog, Dogfish Head, Ommegang, Stone, Speakeasy, and Hood Canal brewing, as well as alot of big bottle singles from Belgium, England, and Germany. On a recent visit, I saw a 3 litre of Samiclause on display; he went out of his way to explain to me what this lager was and then proceeded to bring up some small bottles brewed in 2005 for me to purchase from his cellar! The have a pretty good selection of glassware too. It's nice to have a really great store close to the house, I no longer have to go to Seattle to get something I'm jonesing for!

This is a nice new beer and wine store in the downtown Redmond area.
Very nice selection of beer and mead, and I assume they have good wines, but not knowing anything about wine I can't really comment on it.
The owners are very friendly and the service is always good. This is now the place to buy beer on the east side and a nice alternative to giving money to whole foods. I wish they had a few more Belgians and more bear republic beers, but that is a small complaint. For a new store they are doing a great job.
