A nice good sized bottle shop that is as quirky as the owner. She will talk your ear off, so make sure you have the time if you initiate. Selection is good, with lots of ciders and meadís as well. Prices are a bit high, but spend enough and you get 10% off which helps. Overall a good spot that I would come to again, the only downside is no taps or growlers.
Cool little shop in Georgetown with a decent selection, though as big as some other places, such as Bottleworks or The Beer Junction. Nice selection of ciders and ice ciders as well. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Prices are a little higher here than other places, though you can get a 10% discount if you spend more than $100. I wouldnít come out of way to get here unless youíre in the area, but itís a great addition to Seattle bottle shops.
Nice bottle shop not so sure about the location. With my trusty GPS I found the place with ease. It was a nice tidy place with a bottle selection of about 500-600 different labels and I was able to find a few that I had not seen. They had quite a Pacific North West selection that I was very impressed with. They also had a pretty big import section. If youíre in the area and need a special brew stop by they might just have it. I know I will be back when in the area.
What a cool reclaimed historic space. This hadnít been anything like a retail storefront for decades, if ever, before Erika refurbed it. Itís very cooldown to bare brick and slat floor, with ancient keystone arches in the back wall, where horses used to walk through. 14 cooler boxes so far, with pretty much the usual suspects for sale. Prices right around what bottle shops in town generally charge for everything. You canít ask for a cooler, friendlier proprietor, either. Among shopkeepers in town, sheís not going to take first place for overall beergeekdom, but she has the enthusiasm and is willing to take special orders, expand inventory, etc. And for the several hundred bottles she has in stock now, she knows her stuffand sheís up on the business to boot. Great addition to the scene, especially if you live south, of, say, the U-district. Right in a row of awesome watering holes to boot.
I was traveling through Seattle and wanted to pick up some beers for the road. I loved the selection of individual bottles. I could have easily picked up over 100 beers that I hadnít tried before. I asked the staff to recommend beers since I was overwhelmed with new beers to choose from. They were very helpful in their recommendations, and I was very happy in the beers they recommended.
I live near Georgetown, so I get to Full Throttle often enough, maybe once every 3-4 months. The reason I don;t go more often is most of the beer is available elsewhere and for about 15% less. IF I need something that has sold out at Total Wine or one of the nanos that bottles (e.g., Burdick, Justice) Iíll go here. Small place filled with beers, cider, and a bit of wine. A little eccentric place but not too much. Parking could be a bitch at peak hours. If you are in this part of Seattle and canít get to West Seattle, or Chuckís, this place will be great. Or if you need a nano bottling. Otherwise, there are better stores. I like this place but I rarely feel rewarded for coming in.
Not a horrible place. Not in the nicest part of town, but this place a nice touch to it. Nice staff. There arenít that many coolers, but the coolers they do have are filled with some delicious goodies. Picked up a lot of stuff. Enough to receive a 10% off discount card. Wish they had a bit more of a selection, but they do what they can with the space that they have. They have wine, which I think is a waste of space, coming from a beer guy.
