We love going to Chucks, totally unique spot as a former grocery store turned beer drinkers haven. They have so many great beers and if they donít have it, talk to Chuck. He can get it.

Evidence that you donít need an amazing structure to make a great business. This is a little beer mini-mecca thatís been carved out of a crummy old convenience store. They appear to have done this by sheer force of will. Itís a great bottle shop, and they always have a great tap list. They even have food! You walk in and the front has a few tables, some wine displays merched out, and an aisle or two of packaged foods for sale. It still has that convenience store feel, at least for a few square feet--racks of candy bars, and so on. But past that is a medium-sized seating area with a dozen or so tables and about 700-800 bottles in coolers and on shelves. They get a solid cross-section of West Coast (the emphasis), other domestics, and imports. They get their fair share of special releases both in bottle and on tap. The staff are really nice, and the prices are solid enough. Thereís usually a food truck parked outside, and the place gets really busy. If you like good beer, this place will eventually be a must-stop for you. Sooner or later, either curiosity or something good in stock nowhere else has to bring every beer lover here. Itís not the first stop for out of town visitors, but theyíre very good at what they do, and they wonít let you down.

Basic setup of tables, chairs and a cheap looking bar. It feels like Iíve just stepped into a mini-mart or something. Oh, thatís not a negative connotation by any means...I freakiní loved this place. Chuckís Hop Shop rocks. Ridiculous amount of bottles stocked up in fridges lining the walls plus an extensive tap selection to choose from. Thereís food trucks dishing out excellent grub outside. Family and dog friendly. Fill growlers here. Yes!

This spot was nice. Lots of bottles for there or takeaway, decent tap list but prices seemed high. They have daily food trucks outside and I took up the biscuit truck quite well. Iíd come here again but they are pretty far north of seattle.

(Visited 09/2013): Chuckís is located in the north part of Ballard on the corner of NW 85th and 8th. There is a small parking lot in front of the building.

After passing a small patio in front, the interior opens to a convenience store style layout with shelves along the right and perimeter, including some coolers toward the rear. There is a small walk up bar in the back left corner, with a digital board above the bar listing what is on tap. Yellow walls, and a painted logo with the words "Land of a Thousand Beers".

As for the beers, there are exactly 38 on draught, including breweries like Bakwoods, Elysian, Odin and Fort George. Growlers are available for draught beer. The bottled selection amounts to hundreds, including many west coast breweries like Bruery, Lost Abbey, Elysian, Pike and Almanac. Lots of singles and imports as well.

Service on a relatively slow weekend afternoon was good both at the bar and while I was shopping. These guys definitely know their beer.

I did not have any food on my visit.

Overall this is a solid beer store to visit in the Seattle area, and the option of enjoying a pint before, during or after shopping is a great bonus.

Excellent selection and quality mix of taps make it one of the top Seattle bottle shops. Would definitely make this my neighborhood hangout if I lived in the area.

What a great spot! Glad to finally visit. Strange location, but cool. Extensive bottle selection, quite a few things (mostly Pac NW locals) I hadnít seen in Seattle before, plus plenty of fancier specials and imports. Even random things like Tusker from Kenya. But Iíll stay for the great tap list, which theyíll serve in half-pints. All available for growlers (and half growlers). Food trucks park out front daily, which is very cool. Great spot, worth a special trip if youíre in town, and wish it was in my neighborhood.

Chuckís is an awesome place due to their helpful staff, the excellent selection of beer, and their food offerings (from a pretzel with "crappy cheese" to rotating food trucks). Their bottle prices are a little bit above average, but their draft prices are pretty decent. They have something like 40 beers on tap, and about half of those are usually IPAs. The place can get a little cramped and since itís family neighborhood, there are usually kids and dogs there. The staff is great, going out of their way to let you sample beers on tap and are patient with you while you try to make up your mind.

A cool convenience store with a has station feel but great vibe. A nice patio outside. Service was a bit slow but we basically arrived at last call. About 40 taps and a real strong bottle selection. Limited samplers available. Food trucks seem do stop by often and Iíll never complain about a 6 buck sampler. Quite a spot!

A beer mecca thatís not too centrally located. Rustic place with tons and tons of fridges. Taps are mostly local - the taplist was not too amazing, though, while I was there, since I had been ticking locals already. The bottle selection is just amazing, especially in terms of US brews. Also, while they officially only do flights of IPAs and Ciders, you can still get 4oz pours of any beer on tap. An absolute must in Seattle.
