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 I donít know who posted the "Brew Tour Guideís Comments," but I think itís a bit outdated as I think youíd be hard-pressed to find WA beers that arenít stocked here.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.

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.

Bottleworks is a hell of a place to buy beer. Superb selection, the beer seems to treated well, most is in coolers and the store itself is kept cool and not too bright. They have an excellent selection of local NW beers as well as a nice selection of other craft beers and lots of European imports. Bottleworks is a must stop if you are in Seattle!

The only place in Seattle to find all the best and rarest beers. Great staff and great selection. Prices can be a little steep in my opinion for the slightly mainstreamish beers (Unibroue, popular NW micros). A little dingy too (kind of dark and dank), but really the only place to go in Seattle if youíre looking for something interesting.

Not quite was I was expecting. Iíve been a semi-regular to Johnís Marketplace for quite some time and Iíve always heard the legend that is Bottleworks. Itís in a fairly good neighborhood. I could have driven right by it because it was so small, not what I was expecting. Plenty of [free] parking. Inside is beer, just beer. No fooling around. Johnís is a small market that also has good beer, Bottleworks is just beer. Almost all of the beer is in coolers, there was a couple pallates of stuff in the center of the store, mainly seasonals. It was very dark inside and difficult to see some of the beers, not quite what I was expecting based on the website photos. The selections was good with some very hard-to-finds. Lots of ho-hum imports though. The thing that got me was the vintages they stock. For a little increase in price, you can buy progressively older vintages. Ex: Stille Nacht 04: $3.99, Stille Nacht 96: $9.99. Good deal to me! The people there knew exactly what they were doing, it was as if I was working there. Good prices on most things and overall a great store to buy bottled beers, TONS of specialty one-offs from regional brewers. I need to get back to this place one day when I get rich.

Visited in August 2003 while in Seattle on vacation. This place is a beer geekís paradise. There are probably over 500 different beers here - all in individual coolers separated by appropriate cooling temperatures. I decided to concentrate on countries that I had not sampled yet as I had had my share of Washington State beer over the last week and the Belgian selection was just too overwhelming for an impatient person like me - had to have at least 50 Belgians. I was able to find beers from Laos, Ethiopia, Bolivia, and Turkey to add to my countries sampled list. The prices are great as well. I only paid a little over 12 bucks for 8 beers! Highly recommended.
