A craft beer only shop which is fantastic to see. Lots of the usual good bottles, with interesting releases and a growler station. I was hoping it would have some forgotten bottles being out of the way, but it has a loyal local following so no hidden surprises. Still good though and worth a stop.
Good bottle shop for a small town with a fairly extensive selection. Seasonals are located on a shelf near the cash register. Nothing overly special here on our visit, but it certainly seems like *the* place to go for bottles when in Olympia. Prices are typical and service is quite friendly. Recommended.
You know, I really enjoyed this bottle shop. The service in here was great - the guy working was really friendly and helpful, making nice suggestions, and generally chatting with us. The selection wasnít as great as a lot of other bottle shops, though still quite good, and was stocked with some nice rarities I appreciated (e.g., barrel aged Alesmith Wee Heavy). Prices were decent, and there was a nice atmosphere in here. Iíll happily stop back by when in the area.

A favorite stop when home in Olympia. This is a great focused shop with a well organized and curated extensive selection of NW, national, and pretty good import beers. The shop staff were very helpful picking out WA and OR beers that donít make it to the Northeast. I was lucky enough to pick up a couple of The Abyss to stash at my momís for aging! Prices were reasonable.
I visited this place in hopes that the ratings were going to match the quality. In some cases they did, and in some cases they didnít. The service was great. The owner asked if we had any questions and was there to help. The selection was decent, for Olympia. Most of the stuff there was nothing that I couldnít get in the "Greater Seattle Area", so I was a little disappointed. There seems to be some wasted space, and random shelving here, but thatís none of my business. The layout isnít bad, it just seems that I could be done a bit differently. The selection of Belgian ales was nice. There were a few coolers that had almost frozen beers. I would have told him, but I didnít want to feel like an asshole. The prices were a bit higher than that of which Iím used to. Overall, itís not a horrible place, but I canít see them getting gems in here on a regular basis.
Thanks you guys for such an awesome beer store without all the attitude and with all of the knowledge... keep it up! Great selection, and special orders for the special times! be sure to hug your beer store owners :)
Decent little store that has some room to grow. Decent selection and both times I have been they have a thing or two that I probably wouldnít find up in the Seattle area. Clean store, fair prices, and friendly staff but they could use a bit more selection. Definitely worth a stop however if you are in the area.
