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.

Small, cramped store in a trendy neighborhood surrounded by Asian restaurants. Parking in the back is nice. All the beer inside is fridged with a local section, cider section, Belgian section, etc. Lots of bombers; tons of local beers. They had a 1.5L or bigger of Fish Leviathan, which was pretty cool and not even that expensive. Good recommendations on cider from the staff. They have a tap list in the back and you can drink those on premise. De Dolle Oerbier on tap was pretty cool. Other than that, itís a good bottle shop but you can find a similar selection at Pear Deli on Pikeís Place/Pike Market. Prices were high and a few special bombers didnít have the price listed :/

This store is SMALL for how well-known it is. The selection is standard for a west coast bar and I hear they hold back special stuff to release at random which is pretty cool. The tap list is nice and you can drink any thing there or take it to go. Some food nibbles would be nice to eat on.

Seattleís premier beer store, one of the legendary beer store of the country even that I was reading and dreaming about 10 years ago when stumbling upon RateBeer ended up being perhaps a bit below its strong expectations. A solid all-around selection, but I would be surprised if there were really close to 1,000 different labels in here. The taps are a nice addition, but in a beer drowning with good beer bars, itís a very strong statement. I was a bit annoyed that a place focusing on the beer store part of their business would not allow minors, meaning I could not sneak in with my son who was not even one year and a half at the time - not their fault, but they did not seem to mind either. Inside, itís surprisingly small, but well laid out. While there are many beers from the PACNW, it was not clearly their focus.I guess when youíre a local, you take advantage of what may be a quickly rotating beer base, but I just came in expecting one of my greatest beer store expťriences and it was not there at all. Very good, but not even a clear #1 in Seattle.

Stopped in on my last day in Seattle. About time too since my friend has been getting me all the Bottleworks releases since the 10th anniversary (and has gotten old releases like the 6th-8th). After reading about how many bottles they have and how awesome this place is I was surprised by how small the store is. Things may have changed since they installed the tap system but it was pretty small. Despite that it takes a while to look at everything since there are so many bottles. They also have plenty in the back that they can get out if you ask. There is a fridge near the door that has some cool stuff in it like the barrel aged Fish beers and some old Bottleworks anniversary releases. The service was pretty quiet and hands off but were happy to answer questions when I asked. They seem to get all the latest releases so you can always find something new here. Cool place for sure.

Stopped by after a trip to the zoo, which was very close. They had a few taps available, which was cool...wish we had that in MN. Huge selection and almost everything was in coolers, which was amazing with the size of the selection. Service was decent, though not overly friendly or knowledgeable. Employees were more concerned with chatting up friends that came into the store.

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
