I stopped in at Chuck's Hop Shop for the first time today to see what all the fuss is about. It was a damn fine little bottle shop; perhaps not the best in Seattle but quite good.

The selection is largely similar to other good bottle shops in the area, and very nearly everything was properly displayed in refrigerator cases. I was surprised and happy to see a lot of offerings from Cascade as well as from Alesmith, the latter of which I don't think I've seen before in Washington.

Atmosphere is great, with seating in the middle for drinking and socialization. There's a small corking fee, which I think is pretty acceptable. Prices in general are a little bit high, but not out-of-order.

Chuck happened to be there and offered his help. Seems like a nice enough guy, and it's great to see the owner mingling with the customers. Chuck's has an ice cream counter and a selection of Kwik-E-Mart type snacks, if you want to call that food. But hey, this is a bottle shop, not a pub.

I will absolutely be back to Chuck's, and probably soon. A great little place.

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.
