Right there on Pike across the street from the indoor portion of the Market. Doesnít really look like much, and inside looks a bit like a typical deli and grocery store. However, there is a pretty substantial selection of beer (and some cider) here.
A good portion of the beer is in refrigerators, which is nice. Thereís a bunch out on shelves as well, though they actually seem to mostly leave out the barleywines, imperial stouts, etc. which is nice (instead of letting all the pale ales and IPAs cook).
The selection is primarily Washington (and PNW) based. Lots of breweries that Iím not necessarily familiar with (not being from the area). A handful of interesting imports as well.

Have to say a decent place to visit if you stay downtown. There is a large cooler section with a very good selection of brew, especially nice epic line up if you want to try some of their stuff. They also have stuff on the shelves with a section for beers over 8% so that they can mature. Nice to see Decadence 2013, boulevard Saison brett, and love child. Very knowledgeable staff who was friendly and very happy to just chat. Also good food / snacks.

Highly underrated bottle shop at Pikeís Place Market. Lots of fridged beer and cider and an adjacent shelf with unfridged beer. Huge selection, lots of local beer and cider. They even had some of the Bordelet Perry bottles, the top rated pear cider in the world; and they were insanely delicious! They also were the only bottle shop in town to still have bombers of Fremont Cowiche Canyon, which is the best IPA there is right now hands down. Shockingly awesome selection. A hidden gem. Do not miss! Honestly, they had more beer I was interested in here than in Bottleworks if that means anything.

(Visited 09/2012). Pear Deli is on Pike Place just a short walk from Pike Market. There are garages and meters in the surrounding area but the area is always busy.
The inside is bright and well-organized with the beer selection in the rear of the store on the right. The majority is in coolers along the wall.
This store has several hundred brands including many regional brewers like Hair Of The Dog, Elysian, Oskar Blues, Emerald, Pike, Firestone Walker, Sound Brewery, Maui and many others. Lots of imported options too. They offer singles too.
Service on my visit was very good. The guy stocking the beers was helpful and found me a box to tote them back to the hotel. The guys at the counter were nice enough to hold some of my order since I bought too much to carry in one trip.
I did not have any of their food but the deli food looked inviting.
Overall this is a great spot to score some craft beers from all over.

This place is convenient if you are near the market and one a decent selection. They have Great Divide, Deschutes, Hair of the Dog, Victory, Firestone Walker, North Coast, and others. They also have a selection of wines and gourmet foods.

decent selection right on the market, including some IPAs and a midnight sun beer that i didnít elsewhere while in town. near the market and itís oyster bars, meat markets and bread shops, so worth visiting when in the area on foot.

Walked in here after hanging out near a packed Pikeís Place Market. Just wandered in and was slightly surprised at some of the selection. Nothing AMAZING, but we found the black session from Full Sail, 10 Commandments, and Iron Horse beers. Some surprises at this place. A nice little place to visit, but again nothing VERY special.

As in my case, I end up at Pikes Market prior to getting anywhere else, this is the place to pick up a few brews to get you through before making it to Bottleworks. Actually, this last junket only allowed me to stop here and was pleased to find a few "rarities for me". A nice selection of regional brews.

Has a pretty good selection of beers in the back coolers. If youíre in the area and need to find some beers they might have them. About 200 different NW beers in stock. Drop off the others at Starbucks walk 50 feet check out the beer. Hey why not we are all beer geeks.

Used to go here every visit to Seattle before Bottleworks opened. Often found beers I could not find anywhere else.
Staff is not particularly attentive.
