Stopped by while in the area visiting the oldest pub in Seattle, was not impressed by the staff, their knowledge, their selection or much of anything. It is a bottle shop where there are no other bottle shops, that is what allows this place to thrive. Perhaps I am spoiled by The Beer Junction but I do not consider myself a beer snob or particularly particular when it comes to what I want or expect from a bottle shop but there is little to be desired from this joint, skip it unless you have nowhere else to pick up craft beer in S. Seattle.

Checked this place out after grabbing lunch at Jules Mae last fall.

Bottles, bottles, everywhere! In coolers, in boxes, on top of boxes. One gets the impression there's not a lot of storage space in the back, so it all goes on the salesroom floor!

Selection is good, not great for the area. There were a number of beers I can't get in Spokane, but would not be out of place at Bottleworks. Still, if I lived in the neighborhood it'd be my go-to place.

One employee on duty, was friendly and looked up things I couldn't find (none of which they had at the moment).

A nice bottleshop that would draw rave reviews where I live, but is simply good without being great in Seattle.

Q: Quality is good. Did not find any out dated stuff as I checked out the selection. No bad beer here, mostly craft and some wine as well.

S: Good, I was helped as I walked in and and around and the guy at the register was nice and helpful too

S: I did not find anything out of the ordinary. Really hard to find anything that had a wow factor. A very common selection. No big beers like Abyss, BBXII. I really think the list on the website is outdated is misleading. Lot of WA crafy, same Avery stuff, Left Hand, plenty of Oregon stuff and a share of Victory, ST, spotted a Lost Abbey and some Older Viscosity at nearly $19!!! Some belgians and euro brews too.

P: Pricey on almost everything

My Seattle friend recommended this place for all of my bottled beer needs. It sure delivered! It is small and terribly full of beer. Bottles everywhere! Finding so many Northwest beers was like paradise for this East Coaster: Justice Brewing, Burnside, Hub, Alaskan, Fremont, Airways, Harvester, Crux Fermentation, Diamond Knot, Silver City, Fish Brewing, Pelican, Black Diamond, Gigantic Brewing… and so on.

This is not your typical Stone-and-Sierra bottle shop! I found some good stuff, like Pelican Mother of All Storms. Several barrel-aged brews around, including Lost Abbey Deliverance, Black Xantus and North Coast 20th Anniversary. Prices are high- 20 dollars for Deliverance?? But the variety and customer service (the guy working there during my visit knew his stuff and was ready to recommend good beers) make up for it. Will return, no doubt.

A bit pricey and inconvenient to get to, but the owner is nice, and the facebook site does a good job keeping updated. You can get the rare beers here. Overall though, it’s nothing you can’t find at one of the other Seattle bottleshops, and it’s usually a bit more pricey. I still shop here on occasion.

Stopped by for the first time today. It was about 1pm on a Friday and parking was kind of a pain. The store comes across a little cluttered...half wine, half beer. The sales lady (owner) was super helpful but not annoying in anyway. I was looking for something different and found a "just in" brown ale from Baranof Island Brewing in AK. $10 for a 22oz. She said her husband went to high school with the founder or something and they were the ONLY store in the state with the new brew. Score! I drink and review immediately. Overall the store serves its neighborhood well. Worth the stop if you are half way between Seattle and Federal Way. They don't fill growlers.
