Tremendous selection, Belgians, world wide and a swath of domestic craft breweries. They had Hair of the Dog that had been aged for eight years. Minor complaint too much was refrigerated. Great place not to be missed.

Stopped in on my last day in Seattle. About time too since my friend has been getting me all the Bottleworks releases since the 10th anniversary (and has gotten old releases like the 6th-8th). After reading about how many bottles they have and how awesome this place is I was surprised by how small the store is. Things may have changed since they installed the tap system but it was pretty small. Despite that it takes a while to look at everything since there are so many bottles. They also have plenty in the back that they can get out if you ask. There is a fridge near the door that has some cool stuff in it like the barrel aged Fish beers and some old Bottleworks anniversary releases. The service was pretty quiet and hands off but were happy to answer questions when I asked. They seem to get all the latest releases so you can always find something new here. Cool place for sure.

Not only is this one of the best beer stores in the country, itís easy to find off of I-5 to 45th street, and the folks who run it, as well as the customers, know what they are doing. Not even worth going to another store in town. Keep it up guys.

From the outside (and hell, even from the inside) this place doesnít look like much.
Cozy neighborhood shop with a lot of coolers of beer taking up almost all the wall space. Thereís also a small bar at the back and some tables in the center. Beers can be consumed on site or off.
The service was very helpful and friendly to myself and all others in the store. The selection here is absolutely top notch. Of course, tons of great Washington beers offered. Great import selection of German, Japanese, and Belgian offerings. Lots of stuff from all over the US. And of course, the specialty beers made for them.
Not sure how much I can really say that hasnít already been said about this place...itís word class.

Itís the best beer store in the region as far as variety and quality of selection is concerned and whatís more, they bring in new beers on a fairly regular basis and have a knowledgeable staff thatís helpful in a Northwest kind of way.

(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.

With all the hype I expected a grand huge place packed with people. I was happy to find a nice quaint small place with lots of coolers, a few people drinking beer and a geeky staff. Nice place with a insane import selection. Lots of aged rare beers at horrendous prices. A good place I could spend lots of time in.

A serious and proper store worthy of any beer geekís time. Pretty much everything distributed in Seattle (so does not include at-the-brewpub-only type stuff). Beer mags, chocolate, glassware. Nothing else - a straight up beer store.

Seattleís premier beer store, one of the legendary beer store of the country even that I was reading and dreaming about 10 years ago when stumbling upon RateBeer ended up being perhaps a bit below its strong expectations. A solid all-around selection, but I would be surprised if there were really close to 1,000 different labels in here. The taps are a nice addition, but in a beer drowning with good beer bars, itís a very strong statement. I was a bit annoyed that a place focusing on the beer store part of their business would not allow minors, meaning I could not sneak in with my son who was not even one year and a half at the time - not their fault, but they did not seem to mind either. Inside, itís surprisingly small, but well laid out. While there are many beers from the PACNW, it was not clearly their focus.I guess when youíre a local, you take advantage of what may be a quickly rotating beer base, but I just came in expecting one of my greatest beer store expťriences and it was not there at all. Very good, but not even a clear #1 in Seattle.

Small, cramped store in a trendy neighborhood surrounded by Asian restaurants. Parking in the back is nice. All the beer inside is fridged with a local section, cider section, Belgian section, etc. Lots of bombers; tons of local beers. They had a 1.5L or bigger of Fish Leviathan, which was pretty cool and not even that expensive. Good recommendations on cider from the staff. They have a tap list in the back and you can drink those on premise. De Dolle Oerbier on tap was pretty cool. Other than that, itís a good bottle shop but you can find a similar selection at Pear Deli on Pikeís Place/Pike Market. Prices were high and a few special bombers didnít have the price listed :/
