(Visited 09/2013): Chuckís is located in the north part of Ballard on the corner of NW 85th and 8th. There is a small parking lot in front of the building.
After passing a small patio in front, the interior opens to a convenience store style layout with shelves along the right and perimeter, including some coolers toward the rear. There is a small walk up bar in the back left corner, with a digital board above the bar listing what is on tap. Yellow walls, and a painted logo with the words "Land of a Thousand Beers".
As for the beers, there are exactly 38 on draught, including breweries like Bakwoods, Elysian, Odin and Fort George. Growlers are available for draught beer. The bottled selection amounts to hundreds, including many west coast breweries like Bruery, Lost Abbey, Elysian, Pike and Almanac. Lots of singles and imports as well.
Service on a relatively slow weekend afternoon was good both at the bar and while I was shopping. These guys definitely know their beer.
I did not have any food on my visit.
Overall this is a solid beer store to visit in the Seattle area, and the option of enjoying a pint before, during or after shopping is a great bonus.

Not too far from Naked City and other Seattle essentials, so get here. To me, this was a better experience than even Bottleworks. A complete experience with large spaces, kind of a cafeteria in the middle where you can dig into the interesting tap selection and tons of fridges surrounding you. Iím not convinced there can really be over 1000 bottles in there, but there sure are many and theyíre well kept, easy to browse throughť I did not interact much with the staff nor did I eat, but the atmosphere herein was most pleasant and relaxed. A bit out of the way if you are not in the neighborhood, but so can other beer stores in Seattle be and combining with Naked City makes a lot of sense, especially for those with a car which should find a spot closeby.

Great tap selection with 38 on tap. Stopped here right after a bunch of IIPAs were tapped so I was in heaven. Not served in proper glassware though, at least not to my liking. Bottle selection is solid, though prices are slightly higher than elsewhere. Definitely worth a stop if in the area.

Dang solid beer market with a pretty darn impressive selection of West coast beers and decent stock beyond. 30 taps, pretty chill vibe, nice place. Dogs and babies welcome.

This former grocery store has turned into a great neighborhood pub and beer shop with locals of the Greenwood area in the north of Seattle bringing the family along for an evening beer. Very nice atmosphere with an outdoor seating area. 38 taps with beer from all over the Pacific NW, as well as beer from more remote states (such as Avery The Czar). Oh, and thousands of bottled beer.

This is a "corner" store, market-type place. They have food items, you know, munching-type shit like chips, and beef jerky. They also have ice cream, and incense. One thing they do have that is relevant to this site is a pretty damn good beer selection. Iíve seen things here that I havenít seen anywhere else in Seattle. The place isnít trying to be pretentious, and the owner (?) was really nice and asked us if we had any questions. I never have questions, but the fact that he offered to answer the questions I didnít have, was nice. Anyways, the pricing here is a bit tricky. I saw some things that were quite a deal, and other things that were not so much of a deal. The markups werenít that bad, but on something like North Coast Old Stock Cellar Reserve the price was $27.99 instead of $25.99, for example. With that being said, you just have to watch your ass so you donít over spend on something that is cheaper, that may be closer to you. Great place because they offer even the cheap shit, so when I move closer to area I know where Iím going.

Cool place. No need to give the full overview, since others have covered it, but stuff I like:
Big draft list with some nice offerings;
I can take my kid here;
Can also shop for bottles;
Stuff I donít like as much:
the pint as a standard serving unit (no interest in a $14 pint of tasty, strong beer, though I guess half-pints are available if you ask);
bottle prices are a bit high (by about 10% or so). Itís sort of hard to figure out if this is intending to be more of a bottle shop or more of a bar. Itís somewhere in between, with a good dash of convenience store thrown into the mix.

Chuckís 85th St Market is a gem in the neighborhood. Right down the Street and full of a great selection of brews - anything from schwill to Angels Share. Not over priced like a few other stores in town. Knowledgable and interested in beer in general, Chuck will gladly geek out with you and chat it up. Only going to get better from here! If you live in the hood or are stopping through Seattle, this is definitely worth a check, and will possible find something rare for a few dollars cheaper.
