Central Market Westgate and Specs Brodie are my favorite local places. Neither can be considered a bottle shop. Whip-In is a great place for a draft, but unlike the other two places, there's no one on the shop floor dedicated to helping with beer purchases. The best beer shops I've been to in Portland and Seattle also serve beer: Belmont Station (via the Biercafe), BeerMongers, and Bottleworks. The Best Damn Beer Shop in San Diego is another great shop. They're part of a convenience store.
