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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

(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.

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.

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.

Fantastic little bottle shop with excellent service (thanks Trevor) and a wonderful selection. Lighting is kept dark and the beers are pretty much all in fridges. The local selection is as strong as the imports, with a few standouts like 3-liter HOTD Adam bottles and rare Russian River brews. The 8 taps are also very appetizing. You can have a brew while shopping! Great idea. I donít see why I would go anywhere else if I were to shop for beer in the general area of Seattle.

What can you say that hasnít been said before. A beer mecca. Quality brews from all over the world, sorted by vintage and stored in dimly lit coolers. I could spend hours in here.
