I visited the new Central District location of Chuck's Hop Shop last weekend and I really like this place. They've got 50 taps of beer and a few ciders plus another dozen or so of stuff like root beer, hard root beer, kombucha, cold-pressed coffee and various wines. Their beer selection is outstanding; for the most part, bottles and cans are kept in coolers although there are some large-format and specialty beers kept at room temp (which is basically cellar temp at this place).

The staff were friendly and knowledgable. This place seemed filled with locals and regulars, since there were only 2 cars in the parking lot but no free tables inside (there's seating for maybe 50). One thing to be aware of: Chuck's is kid-friendly, so expect tons of toddlers and babies on weekends.

Being from the east coast, this place was amazing to visit. The top-notch craft beer selection, the kid-freindly atmosphere (I went with some friends who have kids in the 6 months - 1 year range, and this is their regular meet up place. How cool), the ticket-based tasting system... all wonderful.
I will make sure to revisit this place on my next trip to Seattle and sip on some more sours.

One of the best beer shops in Seattle as they have a huge selection of beers and a lot that you will not see at other beer shops. For example, this is the only shop where I sold Prarie Bomb being sold in the Seattle area. They also have a lot of great local brews on tap. This is a top notch beer shop

Much better interior physical layout than the Greenwood location (albeit with less outdoor seating), a very comparable bottle selection, and about ten more taps; but the "intangibles" are not, to my senses, quite as good in this new location as of yet. Of course, it's all subjective; and if this is the closer/more convenient place for you to go in Seattle, I can understand why you'd never also feel the need to go to Greenwood.
