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.

Was so happy to see Olympia has added a great beer store. Jeff –Roma (Owners) are full of knowledge with a huge passion for good beer. They have has tons of experience and love to talk beer. If you need it they will try to find it. Close to 600+ beers from ranging from local brews to out of the way world famous beers. They get some great beers and have tasting sessions every few weeks and you get to meet the brewers and sales people and get to try some great beers. There are times they even bring out the stuff never heard of. This is a needed stop in the area.
Great little store. Still new, still working to build up its sense of place--the paint looks so new, the signs look so new, the shelves look so new. The stacks look like they were just done this morning so they could open. Still, it’s well-stocked, the beers are well cared-for, they’re well-chosen. Some great prices here and there. Worth a visit, especially if in town here and nowhere else in the state. Solid new bottle shop.
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 didn’t. 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 couldn’t get in the "Greater Seattle Area", so I was a little disappointed. There seems to be some wasted space, and random shelving here, but that’s none of my business. The layout isn’t 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 didn’t want to feel like an asshole. The prices were a bit higher than that of which I’m used to. Overall, it’s not a horrible place, but I can’t see them getting gems in here on a regular basis.
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 wasn’t 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. I’ll happily stop back by when in the area.
Small store, but with a good selection of beers and ciders. A lot of West Coast brews. Friendly staff, but a little pricey.

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 don’t make it to the Northeast. I was lucky enough to pick up a couple of The Abyss to stash at my mom’s for aging! Prices were reasonable.
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 wouldn’t 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.
Great bottle shop with some excellent connections. Found stuff here that I had never seen before in WA st - southern oregon, nor. brewers offerings with all the great WA selections. Very nice store as well, well laid out, very nice feel. Talked to Jeff, which I assume is the owner, and he was very friendly and helpful. Definetly worth the time to stop by - close to I-5 and right on Oly’s main drag.
