Tremendous selection, Belgians, world wide and a swath of domestic craft breweries. They had Hair of the Dog that had been aged for eight years. Minor complaint too much was refrigerated. Great place not to be missed.

Not only is this one of the best beer stores in the country, it’s easy to find off of I-5 to 45th street, and the folks who run it, as well as the customers, know what they are doing. Not even worth going to another store in town. Keep it up guys.

Stopped in on my last day in Seattle. About time too since my friend has been getting me all the Bottleworks releases since the 10th anniversary (and has gotten old releases like the 6th-8th). After reading about how many bottles they have and how awesome this place is I was surprised by how small the store is. Things may have changed since they installed the tap system but it was pretty small. Despite that it takes a while to look at everything since there are so many bottles. They also have plenty in the back that they can get out if you ask. There is a fridge near the door that has some cool stuff in it like the barrel aged Fish beers and some old Bottleworks anniversary releases. The service was pretty quiet and hands off but were happy to answer questions when I asked. They seem to get all the latest releases so you can always find something new here. Cool place for sure.

With all the hype I expected a grand huge place packed with people. I was happy to find a nice quaint small place with lots of coolers, a few people drinking beer and a geeky staff. Nice place with a insane import selection. Lots of aged rare beers at horrendous prices. A good place I could spend lots of time in.

From the outside (and hell, even from the inside) this place doesn’t look like much.

Cozy neighborhood shop with a lot of coolers of beer taking up almost all the wall space. There’s also a small bar at the back and some tables in the center. Beers can be consumed on site or off.

The service was very helpful and friendly to myself and all others in the store. The selection here is absolutely top notch. Of course, tons of great Washington beers offered. Great import selection of German, Japanese, and Belgian offerings. Lots of stuff from all over the US. And of course, the specialty beers made for them.

Not sure how much I can really say that hasn’t already been said about this’s word class.

Coming from BC, this is an especially nice treat. Outstanding selection of craft beer, with great prices on all the US ones (Belgians a bit more than up north). With now 15 rotating beers on tap, you have the option of enjoying a pint while browsing the extensive bottle collection. I will be stopping here on every subsequent trip to Seattle. Awesome place!

I have visited Bottleworks twice, most recently on 8/13/07. The store is beer only and has an incredible selection of local, NW and West Coast beers. TONS of stuff I can’t get in KS/MO. The space is small, but well laid out. The service has been pretty non existent both times I have visited, but when I had a question or needed help finding something the dude at the register was always able to help. If it wasn’t for weight restrictions on planes, I would have spent triple.
Update - they now have several taps in the back of the shop. Hang out and have a beer at the bar, or grab one to browse the beer selection with. Bump up selection and ambiance. Great place improved.

94 = ★★★★½ (World class)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

(Visited 03/2012): Bottleworks is located north of Seattle near the University District on 45th. We used the grocery store parking lot but according to the signs that is not allowed.

Inside past the checkout counter are shelves full of beer on either side. Not a lot of room to maneuver, but past the shelves is a small bar with a few taps. Loud metal music playing during my visit.

This place features hundreds of different beers with regional brewers like Stone (they had the Bottleworks Anniversary beer on my visit), Elysian, Firestone Walker, Pike and so forth. Many imports as well. Around 9 beers which appeared to be uncommon based on the board behind the bar.

Service on my visit was good. I was asked if I needed help, and checkout was friendly and engaging.

I did not have any food while there.

Overall this place is a must-visit shop for anyone visiting Seattle.

Beershine  (850) VANCOUVER, British Columbia | January 15, 2008
It’s the best beer store in the region as far as variety and quality of selection is concerned and what’s more, they bring in new beers on a fairly regular basis and have a knowledgeable staff that’s helpful in a Northwest kind of way.

A serious and proper store worthy of any beer geek’s time. Pretty much everything distributed in Seattle (so does not include at-the-brewpub-only type stuff). Beer mags, chocolate, glassware. Nothing else - a straight up beer store.
