A pretty standardly decorated bottle shop (meaning, coolers and not much else). A good selection of cans and bottles with a better than average selection of east coast brews (which seem impossible to find out here). Half the coolers are US craft beers and the other half is foreign stuff. The service was adequate, but I felt like the guy there was bothered by people buying beers and wanting growler fills. Another customer was asking about their taster set that they do and he seemed really frustrated the guy was asking. I donít know, to me, that would be a good thing. Meh. Still, the selection would keep me coming back. Overall, a really good bottle shop. One of the few that carries a good selection of singles in the 12-16 oz range instead of only the bombers, like everyone else does.

Small store with a fantastic selection. 8 fridges full of tons of good locals and regional beers, along with a solid selection of Belgians. About the same amount of beer available warm with a generous handful of hard to find beers. Was very pleased to find a bourbon barrel aged alesmith wee heavy. Some great sours in there as well. If youíre in the area, it is more than worth the stop. Somewhat pricey for the more rare items, but worth it.

Very nice bottle shop, just off I-5, in a shopping center. They estimate a stock of 1,200 bottles. Hard to tell, but there is a very wide and well-organized selection of stuff, especially WA, OR, and other West Coast brews. Lots of imports, but maybe a bit skimpy on Belgians. Also mead and cider. Many vintage bottles, too. Growler fills and a weekly "Flight of Four" on tap for about $6. The clerk (owner?) pretty much ignored me at first -- I was the only customer -- but that was fine since I was tired after a long flight to from Japan to SEA and I just wanted to browse. However, when we got to talking, she turned out to be quite friendly and made a few recommendations. This is probably the best bottle shop between Seattle and Portland.

Decent selection. Not michael interaction with the staff. Wish I had had more time there.

Visited the place a few days ago. The shop is located in a busy shopping complex. When you walk in there are wall coolers along the left side. There are shelves of beers on the back and right side along with some case displays. I was looking for some beers but no one seemed interested in helping, including the owner. A greeting of some sort would have been nice. She has a nice selection and prices seem reasonable. This would be a good place to go if you were in this area. Otherwise there are better stores closer to Seattle.

Visited on a recent business trip. Thank goodness for this place as it was the only place in the area with an above average beer selection. Tiffany was very nice and knowledgable. A dozen or so coolers and some dry shelves lining the walls. Very much worth visiting if you are in the area.

I have been to 99 Bottles probably 100 hundred times in the past two years and nearly 100 bottle shops across the world including Port, Bottleworks, Red Carpet Wine and more. 99 Bottles is top notch and is a great stop for everyone in the South Sound and beyond. I am just a beer geek who loves and appreciates what 99 Bottles has to offer. I have never had bad service and the punch card thing is a great idea...rewarding loyal customers...what a concept? They do have vintages, as a matter of fact I picked up 2 x Big Sky 09 Bluehairs, 3 x 2009 Temptations and much more! Granted Bottleworks, Chucks :) are all great stops, 99 Bottles is the best bottle shop between Seattle and Portland hands down. Cheers!

Warmed up to the place since my initial review. Was irked by the service I received from one of the employees and left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth (looking at some of the other reviews, this appears to have happened to others as well). They keep a very good stock, but be prepared to wait in line before the store opens for rare releases. Tiffany does do a good job keeping the website updated, posting pictures, answering questions, and putting out info in the craft beer world. They do an annual cellar sale which has some vintage rarities as well. Overall, not my thing. I canít justify the trip down personally, but I can understand the hype, and have stopped in when I am in the area.
