I’d classify myself as a "new regular". Been here 4 or 5 times. Always helpful and friendly folks working there! They save bottles for me and call when they’re in...I love it! Surrounded by tasty food joints too. Awesome!

This is my go-to bottle shop in the Seattle area. Excellent selection of beers stored properly and in a proper environment. The store is in an aging building across from the original Rainier brewery in the Georgetown area of Seattle. From the creaky wood floors to the mishmash array of coolers the ambiance just pops with a gritty, blue collar feeling that makes you feel at ease. If you need beer, wine, or cider in the Seattle area, this is the place to go.

My favorite place to buy beer in Seattle. Incredible selection, and the folks know beer.

Erika has always provided excellent customer service, earning loyal customers for life. She has been very helpful with special orders, and even took care of ordering the beer, wine, and cider for our wedding.

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 hadn’t 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.

Stopped by for the first time a couple weeks ago. It was about 1pm on a Friday and parking was kind of a pain. The store comes across a little cluttered...half wine, half beer. The sales lady (owner?) was super helpful. I was looking for something different and found a "just in" brown ale from Baranof Island Brewing in AK. $10 for a 22oz. She said her husband went to high school with the founder or something and they were the ONLY store in the state with the new brew. Score! Overall the store serves its neighborhood well. Worth the stop if you are half way between Seattle and Federal Way. They don’t fill growlers.

Made the journey to Georgetown specifically to shop here and did not come away disappointed. There’s plenty of room to browse without feeling cluttered like most bottle shops and the service and selection are top notch. My haul included bottles of Pliny, Sucaba and a couple of beers from Odin and Pelican.

Full Throttle may be smaller than some dedicated beer stores in the Seattle area, but they still have a great selection of beers (and wines) from which to chose. Despite the small size of the store, they leave enough room in the aisles, so a person can walk around without constantly bumping into others. The staff has always been really friendly and attentive and has offered to find beers for me that they don’t have on the shelves. They update their customers via email when they get new or rare beers in stock, and they often offer beer tastings. They have a frequent buyers program to keep their customers coming back. Full Throttle may not have the overwhelming selection that a big-box store has, but do people really need that many choices? I can easily spend an hour browsing this store, and I always walk away satisfied with what I’ve found. There is something to be said for the small, mom and pop store where the staff genuinely cares about their customers. Full Throttle is my favorite store!

My store of choice, mainly because it’s close to work. Selection is good for a small-ish place- heavy on NW beers, but lots of European stuff as well, along with all the typical American craft beers that make it to Seattle. The people here are always friendly and helpful, moreso than the other places in town in my experience (no knock on them). The prices are not much higher or lower than anywhere else, but they do offer a stamp card to get you 10% off of your next purchase following your 10th stamp. Probably worth a stop if you’re visiting because of the large selection of local/regional brews.

Kind of out of the way but worth checking out for sure. The selection was pretty nice, a lot of Pacific Northwest brews, a good cider and mead selection, and a respectable import section. the woman at the cash register (the owner I presume) was super helpful and let my wife use the employee bathroom because she knew that "girls aren’t as messy as boys." That was pretty cool. they had a nice glassware and t-shirt selection and a nice slection of wines as well. I ended up spending a fair bit of money all told but was given the 10% discount you’d get if you had filled up one of their frequent shopper cards. The star of the show was finding a bottle of 2008 Lost Abbey Angel’s Share which I had no problem dropping $38 on. Also the only bottle shop I found in my west coast adventures that carried a bottle of New Belgium La Folie. I left the shop a happy happy man.
