first time out in seattle...first stop i visited. could have spent the whole day there. sat w/ the wife to have a few on tap selections. being the awesome woman she is, she blatantly noted we'd never have this type of selection at home (que to empy the wallet). had multiple conversations w/ staff and random customers...all very friendly and knowledgable. left w/ over a case of local goods and a smile. the wine store next door sells travel packaging kits so everything made it back to new england unscathed. no question this is a must stop!

Bottleworks is one of, if not the most famous bottle shops in Seattle. As a visitor, it is the only bottle shop I would've known about before looking at reviews for places in Seattle. They had a great selection with good prices. The selection wasn't significantly better than most of the good shops in Seattle, but you can find some of their older anniversary beers available, which was pretty cool. My biggest complaint would be the size of the shop and the darkness of the store. It was often difficult to see into the cooler because of the lighting. Obviously, you don't want the shop lit up like Times Square, but I'm not certain they should be impairing visibility as much as they currently are doing. All in all, a must stop for any BA in the Seattle area.

One of the premier shops in Seattle, without question. Yes, it's been overtaken, in some respects, by newer places, but it's still, and will always be, a gem of the local scene. Knowledgeable staff, a well-curated selection (of domestics, and, especially, of imports), special access to Rare Beer, a prodigious cellar (and the patience to keep it and hold beers back many years before putting them on the shelves), and the firm and clear policy to allow and even welcome the breaking up of 4- and 6-packs for single purchase, all truly help to distinguish it from the other bottle shops in town.

Truly, one of the grande dames of the entire Pacific Northwest beer scene.

Nice little shop that fills growlers and has solid selection. Lots of west coast stuff, snagged some Helldorado while there, though I was hoping for a bit more. Granted, they did have a bottle of RR Deviation for $120 that was tempting me pretty hard. Nice service, and overall neat spot. I'm sure I'd be in plenty if I lived in the area.

One of my favorite beer shops in Seattle. Excellent selection of beers including some hard to find ones and the service has always been top notch every time I have been there

Great selection of beers. Naturally lots of fremont brewing stuff. However, the guy working the counter (was wearing glasses) was terribly dismissive and just not a pleasure to speak to.
