A formerly wonderful little store that moved over one building after a cellar fire that’s significantly impacted the operations. I love chatting with Arlene, who’s always very helpful, but right now the selection is suffering a little, and the vintage bottles tend to be very overpriced. I understand the reasoning, but they currently aren’t carrying enough of the WA only brews to make it a must visit. I’m hopeful that will change in the future, and I’ll update my review accordingly.
Really nice bottle shop in downtown Vancouver. The owners and staff are very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Great selection even if somewhat limited compared to the big two in Portland. Lots of great Washington brews to choose from that don’t distribute to Oregon. Also some other breweries such as Port/Lost Abbey and Left Hand. Tap room opened this summer and has a nice selection on eight taps to choose from. Sales tax means I don’t buy here what I can get at home, but there are lots of goodies to choose from, including some older cellarables if you’re lucky to time it right.
Small but well-stocked bottle shop located in downtown Vancouver right next to the Salmon Creek Brewpub. The selection leans towards Pacific Northwest Beers and most offerings are 750s, bombers and single 12oz bottles. The owner is very nice and helpful in recommending what local beers to try. Along with Salmon Creek, it makes for a worthwhile visit to downtown Vancouver .
Stumbled across By the Bottle after dinner down the street, not knowing it was a beer store. A pleasant surprise. The woman working there (the owner?) was very knowledgeable and friendly. I purchased a few bottles to enjoy while I’m here, but had I another bag to check, I could have walked out with a case out of her wonderful selection. She just put in some new coolers and will be adding tap lines in the future, so looks like business is going well!
Smaller than Belmont Station. Oregonians go here to get the good stuff not available just right across the border. Mostly a large selection of Southern Tier and Lost Abbey/Port really make this shop stand out. I’ve only been once and emptied my wallet out there, look forward to many returns.
Drove by randomly and decided to stop by. Glad I did! This store was cool. They are dedicated to only craft beer and everything was chilled. There was so much stuff there that I wanted to buy. The guy that worked there was really cool, and I met some other cool people that were really into good beer. If I lived in Vancouver, I would go to the place all of the time.
