This is the best beer store Iíve had the pleasure of visiting. Itís fairly large. There is plenty of room to walk around without bumping into anyone. The coolers are huge and well-lit, so itís very easy to browse. They have a huge selection and organize their beers well. They have twenty beers on tap and give you the choice of a four ounce sampler or a full glass. They use the correct glassware and sell more glassware than any shop Iíve visited. While I was shopping/drinking, I chatted with the owner and everyone on the staff. These guys are super cool! Everyone was knowledgeable, friendly, down-to-earth, and treated me and the other customers with careful attention. BONUSES: They let you bring outside food in and they have a pint holder attached to the shopping carts, so you can drink while shopping.

Visited numerous times in the past year. They do decent events. Regular tap list often something that really interests. PLUSES: store and shop. Flights of everything. Very good location if you are in West Seattle. CONS: no a lot of seating, crowd they attract annoys me. Prices on bottles a bit more than I want to pay. I prefer Beveridge place in West Seattle b/c they allow dogs and the atmosphere is more welcoming and homey. But this is definitely a top notch beer geek destination but you need to travel to West Seattle.

Visited in the afternoon of Tuesday June 23, 2015. Had two flights of 4 each. Big tap list, huge selection of bottles. Open window in the heat. Ask for the code if you want to use the restroom. My friend drove me and we parked a block or two down the side street. Nice service. Wifi available with password. Well worth to hit up West Seattle for this place alone, Iíd definitely go back if local!

Quite amazing place from my point of view. Tap list was amazing and 4oz pours available for every beer. Bottle selection also best that I have ever seen. Always nice to see my favorite beer Nogne #100 in this corner of the world. BTW google maps give this place wrong direction. It is actually 2 blocks northern.

Multiple visits within the last couple years. These guys do really well with their string of annual events throughout the entire year. Always can expect to try something new every time, and offer multiple serving sizes for all of their taps. Always has gluten free, ciders, and sodas on tap as well to accommodate everyone who may come through the door. Constant offering of brewers nights/meet and greets. Knowledgeable staff of both current products as well as future offerings. Overall itís a must go for anyone at all interested in the beer world. Iíll continue going back here.

Visited last night with Eugene - clean, cozy, well-lit spot with a nice mix of modern and traditional with the decor and seating - impressive draft list with a lot of region specialty beers, all of which can be purchased in flights and full pours, and most of which can be purchased in growlers - long walls of coolers, mostly single bottles, bombers, and 750s - a lot of the beer is organized by style, which is neat - prices are pretty reasonable, but it doesnít seem like anything ever goes on sale - bartenders were pretty friendly - this is a pretty great spot - kind of what I was hoping Bottleworks to be like - as I commented when hanging out here, "this is like a much cleaner, nicer, superior version of Bottleworks" - I recommend a trek to West Seattle for this spot.

I have only made it here a couple of times as West Seattle isnít a place I frequent. However, if it were I could see myself going here regularly. Long rectangular space with entry doors on both ends. In the front is draft with some seating. There is 30-something taps, great selection with knowledgeable service. Nice selection of glassware and the bottleshop is laid out very well with staff constantly stocking, working the register and answering any questions. Worth a trip.

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.
