Found this place while doing my cna training in seattle. Found some great brews id looked for unsuccesfully elsewhere. Great selection high quality brews and a neat almost community deli or coffee shopish atmosphere. The staff was friendly and seemed ready to help. My only complaint was that it was a little more expensive than i was anticipating. The few brews that are also available in west texas were actually cheaper there than here. Timately though id rather support a good local business and slightly overpay for what i want rather than be stuck with limited selection to save a few bucks.

I love both of the Chuck's locations in the Seattle area, but this one seems to have more bottles available then the Central District. That might just be an optical illusion due to the different layouts, but I'm pretty sure this one has more of a selection of beers to go overall. The guys who work here are all really friendly and they always have good stuff on draft. Top notch all the way

V: It is a combination bottle shop/bar with a great neighborhood/local feel. Despite being busy with a large selection of bottles for everyone to look through, a bar and growler fills, Chuck's was laid back.

Ser: Bartender suffered through my wife's new interest in beers and repeated request for tasters. Granted the box of bottles I bought probably helped the cause.

Sel.: The best bottle selection I witnessed while in Seattle along with a tap list that offered several locals I could not find elsewhere.

Overall, I think this is my first 5 star place review. I cannot think of a single way to improve Chuck's in Greenwood. I love this shop so much, if I ever moved to Seattle, I'd try to live near Chuck's so I could walk to it.

I'm partial to central district Chuck's. This one is a bit more crowded but still has the same phenomenal selection and knowledgeable staff.

This place is pretty top notch....A little pricy though.

It's an unpretentious convenience store with ~40 taps, an excellent bottle selection, ice cream (for the kids or weak-willed adults), and food trucks. The interior layout is poor when it's busy (dictionary definition of a "bottleneck"), it's a bit dingy (but in a cozy and charming way), and the draft/growler prices are often befuddling. But, ultimately, if you are new or old to an interest in craft beer, this place is a must-visit when in Seattle. You'll feel welcomed here, and will always find something (and probably many things) to drink.

This is my goto beer store/taphouse. Great food trucks every night and weekend afternoons, too. Very knowledgeable, friendly staff. Great draft beer selection and if you do the samplers, it is a great deal. Very good selection of beers to buy as well. Great events weekly, including trivia.
