This is a cool bottle shop with a great selection. They get a lot of special things in. Thereís a nice long communal table to enjoy one of their rare tap beers. Their anniversary beer was absolutely outstanding. This bottle shop is older than and owned by the same people who own Brouwerís.

Small bottle shop in a nice looking neighbourhood. Itís a little bit dark and dingy, which is a little off putting at first. Coolers line the outside walls, with a long bench table in the middle, and a small bar at the back, serving some stellar brews; and the pricing is spot on too! Itís so grown up to sip a FW Abacus whilst shopping for beer :-) It was very quiet when I visited, so didnít have the crowd problem others seem to report. Anyway, great, large selection of beers, all organised by style, which makes shopping a little easier. Pricing was good, and product appeared to be very fresh. Service was friendly enough, but didnít have much reason to chat; ordered a cab for us, which was nice of him. If I didnít have to be elsewhere, I would certainly have stayed longer and tried more of the taps/bottles on offer. A must visit when in Seattle/Fremont/Ballard area. Visited 10 July. #EBGA

Small little bottle shop with coolers and shelves around the perimeter and a draft set up in the back. You can hang out and have a beer but there isnít a lot of room in the place so it makes shopping hard. Service was good, nice recommendations made and knowledgeable about the beers. Great selection, while not huge there are many interesting beers including lots of local offerings. Value was ok, they are proud of some of the rare bottles but most normal beers were priced well. Very nice little place, check it out.

Bottleworks has been around for a while--they are the first dedicated beer store I can remember in the Seattle area. They have a great selection of bottles, plus they offer growler fills and even allow customers to drink draft beers in the store. The store feels pretty cramped and one constantly has to jostle for position with other customers. The staff knows beer very well and are always helpful, but not overly friendly. Bottleworks is a great resource in our city, and Iíll always be a customer.

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.

Interesting place in the midst of a neighborhood. Long coolers along the sides with a few taps in the back and a bar table in the middle. Loved the bottle selection with a number of west coast items that I never see. Not a significant number of bottles. Interesting choices in the taps, and nice to have a brew while deciding on the bottles.

Nice bottle shop. Lots of solid stuff here, but nothing legendary. There seemed to be more of a focus on foriegn brewers as opposed to American craft.

(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.
