A: Misleading. Do not judge a book by its cover. The place is your would be market but once you enter and walk to the back you're in for a treat. Nearly 1,000 beers; rare stuff, vintage stuff and solid standards. They have some tables and chairs at the back by the coolers. Drink beer and shop. Plus they have a few stools and a makseshift bar. A good vibe here. but it quickly becomes cramped, overcrowded and borderline uncomfortable
Q: Only quality beer, 99% of the beer was properly stored in coolers.
S: All of the guys were extremely helpful, knew the beer and enjoyed what they were doing. They had no problems entertaining questions and providing recommendations
S: Everything from Midnight Sun, Cascade, HoTD and beyond bottlewise. They have 30+ solid handles for growlers to go or to drink while you shop. I mean solid taps! Fremont Sister IIPA and Sound Humulo Nimbus for example.
F: No food but it is a market so grab something off the shelf.
Perhaps the best kept secret in Seattle. Something about this place intrigued me. This is exactly what I desire in a beer store.

I've been going to Chuck's since they first opened, after converting from a little corner convenience store. They've grown and expanded and I'd say their now a community hub for the Crown Hill/Greenwood neighborhood. Great beer selection (among the best in the city), huge tap list, good focus on Northwest beers, great food trucks on the regular, nice little beer garden where their tiny parking lot used to be. Beer prices tend to be on the high side (5% to 10% above other spots). It's not fancy, but the space is welcoming. Families congregate and relax here, staff is really friendly. Chuck's is an asset to the city.
