Expansive array of chilled offerings. Plenty of Belgians, European and domestic craft brews. They certainly have an adequate supply of NW and local offerings. Next time I’m in town I’ll be back for more local brews. There didn’t seem to be too much overlap with the selection at bottleworks that I noticed during my visit to the area. I found several local brews here not found there. Two things: 1. I wish I had more time the day I visited to talk beer with the proprietor and sample some draft offerings, 2. Where was this place when I used to live near here? This is the kind of place I needed.
Wonderful, well laid-out place with an excellent selection. Everything is well-organized in fridges, with a good cider and mead selection as well. Prices are maybe a touch higher than Bottleworks. Good taplist too. Service is friendly and helpful. Definitely one of the best bottle shops in WA.
Went here for the first time. Clean place, fridges surround the place, some wine, and taps. Tables for people to bring their own food in (which a lot of the locals were doing this Sunday evening). The prices were standard or a $1 more. Their Anniversary beer was unnecessarily expensive. Tap selection was good, a few nice import taps. They seemed to have a few bottles I had not seen around shops in Seattle.
Well worth it for a Seattle local to visit.
I would not trek my way here out of Seattle during high density times for visitors.
Easy to work with good list of beers I needed had no trouble ordering and getting the beers sent on a real shoppers delight this place

This place seems to be better every time I return. Great selection of bottles with fair prices. Knowledgeable staff with good recommendations and conversation. A good number of taps here, however there are times I have gone and some of them were empty. Overall, I have never had a bad experience here, and love going here. Update: what’s with the draft prices though? The bottle prices are fair, but a lot of beers for standard draft pour are at least $2-3, even up to $5 more than I would expect at other places. I usually stick to bottles when I go here now, unless they have a draft that’s a can’t miss, which is occasional. I also had a recent experience where I arrived a whole 45 minutes before closing and they refused to serve me, due to them already closing the taps. I can understand 20 or even 30 minutes before closing, but I was very annoyed to go out of my way to come here and have that happen. All things considered though, I love the place. One of the better bottle shops around in my opinion.
Have to rerate since I first went here a couple of days after it first opened and it’s evolved a lot since then. This place just keeps getting better. Great selection of beers on tap, everything you could hope for in bottles, owner (Doug) is a great guy, and they always come through with my kegs now that I have a kegerator. Just an awesome place!
Close to my hotel so made the drive over here and was glad I did. Huge selection and lots of hard to find bottles available. I was able to stock up and wish I could have bought more. They had quite a few taps on and plenty of seating. Very friendly service and they had plenty of room to move around the store. Most bottles were in coolers, like what I saw at Bottleworks, and I was just shocked as the selection was huge. If I am in the area again, I will be back to visit.
