Nice bottles hop and tasting bar in a trendy location with tons of free parking. Great service, these guys all know beer and are nice to boot. No in house food, but delivery options. Big selection of bottles that you can drink there or take home. Prices are a bit on the high side, and exciting beer is likely draft, but growlers are available. Worth the high scores.

This is a wonderful bottle shop in West Seattle, definitely worth the trek. Superior selection to Bottleworks, all organized by beer style. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. The store offers a 10% discount on all future purchases over $100 after you spend an initial $100 there. This will be my go-to spot in Seattle from now on. Highly recommended.

Unbelievable selection. As good as anything in town. And, given the bottle shops in this town, thatís going some. Beautifully organized. And, given the bottle shops in this town, thatís...a nice change of pace. Itís not that the others arenít organized, or are disorganized. Itís that this place is organized especially well. Walk in, and to your left are the lightest beers in the house. Keep walking clockwise, and they get darker and darker. By the time you get all the way back around to your 6:00 position, youíre walking through huge stouts, belgians, barleywines, and special releases. And they do indeed get the special releases. They get their hands on the good stuff here. The prices are fair, for a bottle shop. You might pay less at a supermarket for the more common items (when supermarkets carry them), but you wonít pay less, not much less, anyway, anywhere for hard-to-get stuff. Best of all, the guy behind the counterís a true believer. He loves turning people on to good beer and has built this business from back to front with that in mind. The beer noob and the beer snob can rub elbows happily here. Cheers to this great addition to the Seattle beer scene.

Iíd put this up against any beer store in the area. This place is awesome, to say the least. I canít believe that I have never heard of this place. The price tags are very descriptive. The store is well organized -- itís organized by "light to dark" -- well, in some areas. The purveyor is extremely nice. I believe heís the purveyor. This store has a great selection, and a lot of Euro beers are represented. The prices are nice, as in, theyíre not more expensive than any other place that Iíve visited, recently. Iím going to start visiting this place more often. They seem to have the beers that every other place sells out of quickly. Itís the best kept secret in the Seattle area.

Hot diggity damn. I love the fact that nearly all of their beer is fridged, so they can control the light and temp conditions. The bottle selection is amazing and varied - there is actually quite a few of every genre around. Itís a bit overwhelming, actually, as you need to spend some time here to really absorb the whole collection and understand what all is there. Great stop.

This place has a great selection in the cooler, a great selection on the taps, they have cool beer events, and the staff is fun. They even brew, and their anniversary ale was delicious. Visit here. Theyíre a relatively new player in Seattle, and I tend to like a place like this more than Bottleworks. Their vibe is are a little more young and almost hipster, whereas Bottleworks has the typical beards-and-beer-bellies vibe. When we visited, they were setting up for a tasting that night. They served the same IPA on regular draft, nitro, cask, and randall.

Visited the place a few weeks ago. The store is on a busy street in West Seattle. Parking can be found along the street or nearby parking lots. The store is very roomy with several wall coolers. In the front there are several tapped beers and a growler filling station. Selection includes most all beers in the Seattle and Washington region as well as other beers in the Oregon/California region. Service was incredible as Morgan was very helpful in gathering the beers weeks before I arrived in Seattle. Thanks for the help, Morgan, and yes, Iíll be back.

Excellent selection of beers from Seattle and Washington along with plenty from surrounding states. Looking forward to visiting the new location and seeing what beers theyíll have on tap.

I believe this was the fourth bottle shop I ever went to. It was really early on in my craft beer journey, but I could still understand that this was special. Iíll start by saying that the owner, Morgan, is a stand out guy. He loves beer, is very knowledgeable, and wants to help you just as much as he wants to make money. Selection is as good or better than any in the area, and prices are right around where they should be. I like the arrangement, itís organized by style of beer instead of brewer or region. My only problem with this store is that it isnít closer to me. Itís just a place that feels comfortable.
