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.

This is the best place on earth to buy beer. The place isnít too big or is the price club of beer, but one room full of random beers that you canít find anywhere else. I was in heaven. They had 4 different years of the bigfoot as well as the celebration. I am still drooling over what I saw and only wish I had more money for BEER!!!

Yeah this is the best place I have ever seen. You want beer this is the place. The Portland drunk should have kept his mouth shut about the vintage beer. Yes they have it but now everyone knows

portlandrunk is absolutely correct, Bottleworks blows John's market out of the water. Where else can you find so many vintage beers and hard to find northwest barleywines. The belgian selection is incredible. My only complaint is they were out of their version of the Laconner IPA. The ambiance was perfect, their bottle collection even featured Bell's Expedition and Dreadnaught bottles. Believe it or not the cashier even bought me an Oerbier glass to go with the Oerbier Reserva 2002 I purchased!

One of the great things about bottleworks is they don't charge extra (like at a grocery store) when you split up the six-packs. Often when I go there, I'll leave with a half-rack and at least 6 varieties of beers. The people there have always been helpful, & are always willing to help search all the nooks & crannies for the style of beer you perfer. As far as selection goes, if it's not on their shelves, then it might not be bottled yet. If the beer you're looking for is bottled, then feel free to ask them for it. Cheers!

Wonderful selection of beers, many of which are very hard to find. Also an interesting selection of unusual glassware

After frequenting John's Markeplace for at least 6 months, I thought I would never find a store that would compare. Wrong. This store is easy to find and in a nice area of Seattle close to UW. Atmosphere is great, the staff certainly know their beer. As opposed to JM's, the bottles are well organized and almost all are refrigerated. Excellent selection of NW beers, Belgians, and some hard to find stuff from really small NW breweries. Also they have a lot of cool beer paraphenalia. Now the kicker. Bottleworks sells vintaged beers, yes, I'm not kidding. I've purchased Jubel 2000 and Rogue IS 2000, and seen the likes of Rogue Old Crusy 2000 and Full Sail Old Boardhead 1999. The selection seems to rotate often as well. Rumor has it that the owners have the legendary Lagunitas B2K in storage, and will one day hit the shelves. After a lot of thought, I give this place the edge over JM's and my vote for best bottle store ever.
