Great bottle shop. They have a good selection of great northwest beers, imports and top domestic microbrews. The owner is very knowledgeable, always has good recommendations. He totally hooked me up with some great barrel aged ales. They get a lot of rare bottles and they are always ready to help you out if you are trying to find something. Prices are on par with other bottle shops in the area. They also have great beers on tap and its a great place to meet people who love beer. I am just sorry I didn't find this place sooner. This will be a regular place I will be visiting from now on.

I often forget that Beer Authority is there, even though they're relatively close to my house. But they always have something good in stock and the staff is pretty friendly and helpful, even though I'm not really a regular. One gripe I have is that the beers aren't always priced so you might not know what something costs until you've already paid for it, but I think their prices are generally pretty reasonable. Just another great option in a town that has a lot of them.

Burc and staff are awesome. The tap list always has a beer I'm interested in trying and the bottle selection is very good. I always find beers I'm looking for here when I can't find them elsewhere in Seattle. Crowd are friendly and beer knowledgeable folks. A great place that I always look forward to visiting.

A great place to hang out and drink beer. I've been to hundreds of bars and have yet to find one quite like this. Burc knows his beers and though he may not be trying to get you to buy the biggest name, highest price bottle, its guaranteed to be a killer beer. They usually get in quite an allotment of the rare/special beers and Burc is always on the lookout for the next new thing.

All in all... Great company. Great service. Great beer.... Ooh yeah, and if you want food, bring your own!
