Bottleworks has been around for a while--they are the first dedicated beer store I can remember in the Seattle area. They have a great selection of bottles, plus they offer growler fills and even allow customers to drink draft beers in the store. The store feels pretty cramped and one constantly has to jostle for position with other customers. The staff knows beer very well and are always helpful, but not overly friendly. Bottleworks is a great resource in our city, and Iíll always be a customer.

Great bottleshop, a Seattle establishment. Shop is small and dark with a good selection of Belgian and other import beers. There are a number of beers you can buy in the grocery stores you wonít find here, but also a number youíd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in town. They have a tendency to quietly put out some great stuff from the cellar from time to time, so itís well-worth stopping in regularly.
Located in Wallingford, which is a nice neighborhood to hang out in.
My only qualm is probably more about me than about Bottleworks -- it took me quite a while to feel comfortable coming in here. The ambiance was intimidating as a new beer drinker -- during my first several trips I had the feeling I wasnít cool enough / knowledgeable enough to be shopping here. Of course, Iím uncomfortable almost everywhere and I have something of a complex about these things, so take this last bit with a grain of salt.

Interesting place in the midst of a neighborhood. Long coolers along the sides with a few taps in the back and a bar table in the middle. Loved the bottle selection with a number of west coast items that I never see. Not a significant number of bottles. Interesting choices in the taps, and nice to have a brew while deciding on the bottles.

Nice bottle shop. Lots of solid stuff here, but nothing legendary. There seemed to be more of a focus on foriegn brewers as opposed to American craft.

(Visited 03/2012): Bottleworks is located north of Seattle near the University District on 45th. We used the grocery store parking lot but according to the signs that is not allowed.
Inside past the checkout counter are shelves full of beer on either side. Not a lot of room to maneuver, but past the shelves is a small bar with a few taps. Loud metal music playing during my visit.
This place features hundreds of different beers with regional brewers like Stone (they had the Bottleworks Anniversary beer on my visit), Elysian, Firestone Walker, Pike and so forth. Many imports as well. Around 9 beers which appeared to be uncommon based on the board behind the bar.
Service on my visit was good. I was asked if I needed help, and checkout was friendly and engaging.
I did not have any food while there.
Overall this place is a must-visit shop for anyone visiting Seattle.

Holy crap. Just go here. Anything that is available in the area is here. Hair of the Dog, many lambics, obscure European stuff, one-offs, rarities, etc Looks like a lot of this stuff moves too. Thereís also a small bar with 9 rotating taps. Amazing.

I usually go there for Baltika Rye - in fact, I donít think you can get it elsewhere in town. In spirit, you can often find very random beer, but then they wonít have something youíd expect a beer store to carry. Great stuff and taps. Hop flavored candy - cool. The crowd is pretty hilarious - "Excuse me, Iím just trying to reach those Pliny the Elder bottles at where youíre standing".

Little shop with a large selection of every type of beer. It seems like the imports are more prevalent than American craft, although it does have a nice selection of both. The organization seems a little chaotic compared to other bottle shops Iíve been to. Also, nothing (that I could see) is priced. Some of the beers have shelf tags with the price on them, but the large majority donít. When I got up to the register with all my beer, I had no idea how much money I had just spent til the guy behind the counter rang it up. I like the fact that itís all kept cold. It looks like they got a bunch of second hand coolers from grocery stores to keep the beer cold, but that just adds to the placeís character. The four or five taps of good beer is a nice touch. Because of this place, I was able to get a number of beers from countries not available where I live.
