Visited on a Tuesday evening, had a pint and did some bottle shopping. Low frills bottle coolers a couple of bar stools and 2 or 3 tables in the place. Compared to other shops in town, the selection is pretty limite - however there is plenty of good stuff to be found here. Barry was a really nice guy to talk to, and the other folks hanging around the shop really gave it a nice local feel. If you live in the neighborhood, its probably already a regular stop, if you live further away, certainly worth checking out.

Plenty of coolers, plenty of stuff in stock. Given all the bottle shops in Seattle, this place is really just another dot on the map. They take care of the product, they offer draught beer, prices are fair, but thereís nothing about the selection that would really make a hardcore geek jump up and down. A great supermarket like Central Market or Whole Foods will take care of you almost as well most of the time, and special releases probably wonít stray in here without stopping elsewhere first and in greater quantity. In short, itís fine if youíre in the neighborhood but not really worth the trouble of driving out here unless youíre fiendish about connecting all the dots. Which probably says more about me than it does about this place. Heh.

Not a big establishment. I believe there were 8 taps. Great service. I believe I met the owner, and he was extremely nice. The prices are all fucked up, meaning, price tags donít match the merchandise, so itís a bit onerous when trying to figure out how much something costs. The selection doesnít seem to be ordered in any type of way. Take your time while browsing the shelves, because you may miss something awesome. The selection was decent; I didnít find anything here that I canít get somewhere else. This is a great place to chill and take your time while beer shopping. They sell glasses, shirts, and other stuff, too. Overall, it was an interesting place, and Iíll go back.

Lots of quality local, out-of-state and Foreign brews to choose from as well as a nice tap list. Makes for a good stop after hitting up the Elliot Bay brewpub.

My fault for missing this place for so long. Really nice local bottle shop, strong on PacNW locals, weak on Belgians. Most of the beers tend to be on the less expensive end of the spectrum, which is quite nice, because it serves as a reminder than one can still pick up some very solid bombers for $4-$6, and one can leave with a mixed case for under $50. That never happens to me at Bottleworks! In addition to the 500 or 600 bottles, theyíve got a nice little bar with a bunch of good taps and inexpensive growler fills. The owner Barry is super-friendly and helpful; stop in and say hi if you havenít already.

Great place. Good selection on tap, pretty good selection of bottles, really friendly staff. Seems like a place I could really get in to. If you are local, itís a nice place to grab a beer and watch the game. I will be stopping in again from time to time.

Just down the street from our gym, so after we workout, we stop by for a pint!
Excellent, knowledgable service from Barry, nice selection. He has Boundry Bay in bottles where Whole Foods doesnít. Always some new and interesting on tap.
Surprisingly nice ambiance for a beer store. Makes you want to have a seat and enjoy a pint, or sip while you browse the coolers. A more welcoming and sincere place than Bottleworks.
He need better signage to pull in the heavy after work crowd on Lake City Way. Itís an easy place to miss that shouldnít be missed!

Rating from just after they opened (no taps). Nice selection of bottles, local discount, knowledgeable friendly staff. Solid beer shop, solid people.

13 taps with some very nice things rotating through. Outdoor seating on lovely Lake City Way. Plenty of happy regulars. Burc is great. Occasional cribbage and retro-gaming nights.
For bottles, itís hard to discern much of an organizational scheme, and the price isnít always obvious. For whatever reason, prices on bottles tend to run a few percent higher than other bottle shops in town.
Growler special on Monday. Website frequently updated with current tap list, and facebook frequently updated with current specials, events, and recent arrivals.
