Great bottleshop, a Seattle establishment. Shop is small and dark with a good selection of Belgian and other import beers. There are a number of beers you can buy in the grocery stores you wonít find here, but also a number youíd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in town. They have a tendency to quietly put out some great stuff from the cellar from time to time, so itís well-worth stopping in regularly.
Located in Wallingford, which is a nice neighborhood to hang out in.
My only qualm is probably more about me than about Bottleworks -- it took me quite a while to feel comfortable coming in here. The ambiance was intimidating as a new beer drinker -- during my first several trips I had the feeling I wasnít cool enough / knowledgeable enough to be shopping here. Of course, Iím uncomfortable almost everywhere and I have something of a complex about these things, so take this last bit with a grain of salt.

Been to this place many times now, and my experiences have been quite mixed. The good first or the bad? Start with the good. Nice location with great bottles, taplist, and always something new to try. They ate really good at the whole cellaring part as well, and will pull out some nice vintage bottles at all times. The bad side. Whatís with the hours? 8 pm close time? I have a job, and when they tend to release stuff at opening, itís never available anymore when I get there, and by the time I can get there, they are last call. The gelato shop across the street stays open 3 hours later than they do, on weekdays! Thatís the only major negative, beside the fact that some of the staff tends to talk to me like Iím a complete idiot. All the staff disrespect and horrible hours aside, I still enjoy this place, and will for sure look the other way to continue coming here and enjoying great beer and events.

Cramped, dimly lit, dingy little bottle shop on a small commercial area mostly populated by restaurants - all the beer is in coolers - surprisingly small selection, really - I went to a few other stores later in the day that had far more extensive selections - now, I supposed what is cool here is the knowledge the staff has, and they fact that they al so have a small selection of vintage beers on sale, some of which is highly sought after by some (barrel-aged Leviathan, anyone?) - so I guess thatís cool if you want to pay a ton of money for old, oxidized beer - they have a small tap list and you can also consume bottles there - the tap list was decent and the prices were not that bad, but itís not exactly a comfortable place to have a beer, anyway - the guy working wasnít exactly unfriendly, but he definitely seemed like he wanted to be somewhere else - not the world class place I was hoping for, honestly - seems like it was probably amazing a decade ago when craft beer wasnít so huge, but today there are more (and better) options out there.

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 long room, with shelves and coolers along the walls, a few tables and chairs in the middle, and a bar at the end; the light of the day doesnít come in, so the place is a bit dark, but this is in the interest of the beer. Itís possible to drink from 16 taps (no samplers/flights though) or fill a growler. The music is a bit too loud. Excellent stop for buying a large variety of beers.

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.

A small bottle shop located about 15 minute bus ride away from downtown. Okay bottle selection with some vintages and their own special house beers available as well, though at a pretty high price. A few taps too, though nothing special was on tap when I was visiting.

Really small store with only room for about 10 people to sit. Store is lined with coolers to browse through and 12 taps at the back. The taps werenít working the day I was there, tap handles didnít seem impressive. The bottles can be drank for a corkage fee. At first its a bit overwhelming, lots of bottles, tight quarters, things run together. They should label by state or style to help out. Most beers there were unimpressive except for the Oregon ones when I saw some Logsdon, lots of Almanac, then there is the vintage list which is really the only reason to come. Very reasonable prices on things like batch 1 consecration, Deviation, and Bottleworks 15. Helpful staff, seemed to know about each beer. Iíd come back to find a rare tick or split a vintage bottle with someone.

Great little place, that a group of regulars plus guilty me did not let close on time because I was buying bottles so others can help finish and not waste beer. Very good selection of local and the regular suspects plus the specials. Friendly and good tap prices as per seattle.
