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.

The Matts are terrific but some of their employees can be a touch on the under-informed and/or ornery side. I love the place, but, LOSE THE íTUDE, DUDES. Just because Iím a lady, doesnít make me ignorant. Iíve been drinking fine beers since before you got your first tattoo...

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.

This is the essential bottle shop in the region, I live an hour and a half away and still frequent the place. Great selection of hard to find locals and beers from abroad, incuding several beers brewed special for the place (all of which are very good - excellent). Perhaps the most unique aspect of the store is itís spectacular assortment of vintage and discontinued beers. The owner has very good intuition as to what beers age well and what will be heavily sought after in the future. A very large portion of the barley wines, lambics, and Belgians are sitting on the shelf in groups of two or three, dating back a couple years a piece. You can literally walk out of Bottleworks armed for tens of vertical tastings! Excellent.

I canít think of how this place could improve. The people there know their stuff. I donít know who posted the "Brew Tour Guideís Comments," but I think itís a bit outdated as I think youíd be hard-pressed to find WA beers that arenít stocked here. And even beyond WA, if the beer is available in WA (and if itís not, donít blame them, blame the WSLC), they have it in stock, and if it ages well, theyíll have many vintages of it on-hand.

This is definately a top notch place. I was overwhelmed as were others at the selection. There are vintages of most every beer in here and some rarities that few ever see! I spent a hefty sum in literaly no time, and definately plan to be spending more there.

Nice and dark inside - almost feels like a Belgian beer bar (which they will be opening in early 2005). As soon as I walk in, I overhear a conversation where an employee is explaining the proces of making a flemish sour ale, and the differences in the aging of various products - they know their stuff! The Dry Hopped IPA was there, the vintages were there (Stille Nact, Old Boardhead, etc...). The chocolate selection is also great, which kept my wife occupied while i searched further.

Hoser  (162) Cowtown, Alberta | September 30, 2004
Proper cooler tempertures, low lighting, a staff that is very well beer educated and bonus glassware when large purchases are made. Bought the la Conner IPA (Bottleworks verison)but was disappointed as it foamed everywhere which tells me the bottle I got had a sanation problem. This store is a must visit and possibly the best bottleshop I have ever visited. I never have been to a store where you can buy lots of different vintages of the same beer. Amazing !!!!!!

Great store. Not too hard to find. Great selection, especially older vintages, although a little bit pricey. On the other hand, where else are you going to find this stuff? Go!! Buy the LaConner dry hopped.

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.
