Iím lucky to have this place so close to home. Always has great beer on tap as well as a great selection of bottles. I have known these guys for bringing in something special as well from time to time, that you canít really find anywhere else. Their website is never updated, which is a little upsetting to me, so I typically have to go in and be pleasantly surprised with the selections they have. Maybe thatís a good thing, I donít know. Though I feel like I would be in more often if I was easier notified of the stuff they bring in. This isnít a review of their website though so I will leave this out. Friendly, knowledgeable staff every time, and they also have table soccer and a bunch of games to keep you entertained if the beer isnít quite enough. Overall a fun place. Iíll keep going back.

Glad to have this shop on the North end. Solid bottle selection, especially after the expansion. Nice, busy bar with a small but well curated selection of taps. Always something I want to try when I pass through. Staff is great and there is a loyal local crew who hangs out here. Not sure it is worth a trip up here just for this joint if youíre just visiting town, but if youíre in the North end this is a wonderful spot.

Used to stop at this place here and there when it first opened as it was on my work commute. It has evolved over time for the better. Added draft, changed owner, moved to a larger spot, added more draft...and now I stop in regularly. Draft list isnít the largest but it is very well thought out and changes daily. Always a nitro, cider, lager and a couple of hoppy beers mixed in with other great options. Great place to find bottles that are usually gone in a day at other places. The service is great and worth a stop if in the area.

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.

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.

definitely the best bottle shop and beer bar in the area. Burc, the regular barkeep, is easily one of the most friendly and knowledgeable beer geeks in town. with an awesome selection of rotating drafts and one of the best bottle selections around, this is my default option for craft beer.

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.

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

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!
