A nice grocery store with a pretty decent beer selection. A nice feel to the place with the beer section in the center of the store. A pretty good selection of local and national micros at a decent price point.
24 hour grocery; small but decent beer selection. Prices are usually higher than other grocery stores by a couple of bucks. Bulk foods selection is nice, though -- this is the place I order 50lb bags of high gluten flour from, FWIW.
Went here with my main squeeze after a pretty nice breakfast. This is simply a grocery stored pretending to be a fresh market. The beer selection was pretty good, but what was really nice were the prices. $12.99 for a 12-pack of Sierra Nevada Celebration! Are you high? Of course, I’ll take that. I found literally a couple of bottles that I haven’t seen anywhere else. I can imagine that this place would be one of your last chances of finding a beer that generally sells out quickly at other places. Overall, I’m impressed with the prices. The selection was great, but still, it’s nothing to wet your pants about. The QFC in the U-Village blows this place away. Cheers. Oh, wait, the food is quasi market food, and the service is grocery store service, meaning, we were asked if we needed help, and that was about it. Start serving stuff on tap, please.
Busy grocery store that has a beer selection that I would put close to that of Whole Foods. Decent selection and they seem to be one of the places that gets new releases first. However, prices are some of the highest if not the highest in town. If you are in the area, it is worth a stop but I wouldn’t go out of my way to hit it.
Visited Tuesday evening Jan 13 2009. This is a nice grocery store with an above average beer selection. Bunch of locals, good selection of others. I picked up two Pliny the Elders that were brewed 9 days previous, quite impressive. Prices seemed a bit on the high side, but singles are plentiful.
Seems odd, but this store may be better than Bottleworks depending on what you want, how much you want to pay, and when you happen to stop in. While they don’t have the range of selection that Bottleworks has for Belgian beers, they do carry a ton of great stuff, more than most Seattle-area stores. And they also have rarities on occasion that the Bottleworks crowd has already bought up by the time you get there.
Central Markets (the chain which oversees this supermarket) does a great job of picking up good stuff from the distros. They buy wine like fiends, so it stands to reason that beer comes flowing in alongside. You can get sandwiches and other ready to eat stuff here, if that matters. It’s one of the better-stocked supermarkets in town, right there with Whole Foods. That said, the Shoreline Central market blows this one away, usually, and Whole Foods blows away both of them.

Decent selection of beers, both local and imports. Reasonable pricing. No problem getting a mixed six pack.
