Simply amazing! Along with the knowledgeable stuff(Chuck himself is god-like) there are lots of well-picked taps and even more so bottles. Beer and wine tastings, homebrewerís get-togethers, espresso&ice-cream, FOOD. Youíll always find beer nerds hanging out here; besides, the crowd is not as pretentious as at Bottleworks.

Love this place. Awesome selection that is strongest on the domestics, but still has a good selection of intíl brews. Easy-going and friendly.

Lively, almost chaotic place on a Friday night. Convenience store conversion with craploads of bottles to be had for a fair corking fee and 40ish taps. Ambience was all over the place, from nerds like me to little kids and dogs. Had fun, but the family side of it made it hard to want to stay too long.

We love going to Chucks, totally unique spot as a former grocery store turned beer drinkers haven. They have so many great beers and if they donít have it, talk to Chuck. He can get it.

Evidence that you donít need an amazing structure to make a great business.
This is a little beer mini-mecca thatís been carved out of a crummy old convenience store. They appear to have done this by sheer force of will. Itís a great bottle shop, and they always have a great tap list. They even have food!
You walk in and the front has a few tables, some wine displays merched out, and an aisle or two of packaged foods for sale. It still has that convenience store feel, at least for a few square feet--racks of candy bars, and so on.
But past that is a medium-sized seating area with a dozen or so tables and about 700-800 bottles in coolers and on shelves. They get a solid cross-section of West Coast (the emphasis), other domestics, and imports. They get their fair share of special releases both in bottle and on tap.
The staff are really nice, and the prices are solid enough. Thereís usually a food truck parked outside, and the place gets really busy. If you like good beer, this place will eventually be a must-stop for you. Sooner or later, either curiosity or something good in stock nowhere else has to bring every beer lover here. Itís not the first stop for out of town visitors, but theyíre very good at what they do, and they wonít let you down.

Basic setup of tables, chairs and a cheap looking bar. It feels like Iíve just stepped into a mini-mart or something. Oh, thatís not a negative connotation by any means...I freakiní loved this place. Chuckís Hop Shop rocks. Ridiculous amount of bottles stocked up in fridges lining the walls plus an extensive tap selection to choose from. Thereís food trucks dishing out excellent grub outside. Family and dog friendly. Fill growlers here. Yes!

This spot was nice. Lots of bottles for there or takeaway, decent tap list but prices seemed high. They have daily food trucks outside and I took up the biscuit truck quite well. Iíd come here again but they are pretty far north of seattle.

(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.
