99 Bottles: A Beer Store For The Beer Lover

Beer
02.20.2009

The Pacific Northwest offers beer lovers so many things; exceptional beer bars, brewpubs, breweries, and what I think is the coolest beer store ever, 99 Bottles. When you walk through the door you are greeted by a warm staff and a chilly room filled with over 900 different beers. Using traditional coolers for some of the beer and keeping the rest of the store at a cool 64-65 degrees assures that all of your purchases have been maintained with the utmost care.

It all started with Craig Adamowski’s yearning for someplace to buy good beer. Over the years of delivering beer and other beverages he ran across many others on the same quest. In order to fill the need for a great place to buy beer the idea and development of 99 Bottles came about. Run by Craig, his wife Tiffany and the store manager Shena. The first thing that impressed me was the absolute spotlessness of the place, beautiful wood floors lead your eyes to the shelves where everything is labeled and displayed with precision. As I looked around I spotted way too many bottles that I wanted to take with me, the only problem I saw was how I was going to pay for everything I wanted and how to actually transport it all home.

For those of you that like to throw the occasional party, 99 Bottles also has an incredible list of kegs available so you never need to bring home another keg of PBR and disappoint your revelers.

More than just a beer store this bottle shop offers tastings every Wednesday for just $1 and on the first Tuesday of every month 99 Bottles has a six beer tasting for $5. If you can make it to 99 Bottles Saturday the 21st you will find a special event featuring Dick’s Brewing Company’s beers and sausage. From 3-6 pm you can come in and for only $1 you get to taste Dick’s Danger Ale, Irish Ale, IPA, Cream Stout, Porter, Belgian Triple and sausage.

If all beer stores were this interesting and well thought out everyone in America would be drinking craft beer.

    Wow, I would be in heaven there and I’d spend WAY too much. My wife would KILL me. Well, I’m actually not married, but if I was .. she’d kill me.

    And PBR … although I hate it out of the can, it actually isn’t too bad on tap! Weird, I know :P

    Tastetastic… I wish I didn’t have to travel for such a wonderful selection.

    Long time customer and appreciator of the store and it’s sexy store manager. This is a great place to buy those beers you can’t find anywhere else, and find things you didn’t know you like. This is the only place in Washington I tend to spend my paycheck.

    Wow. I am both starstruck by and envious of 99 Bottles. Although I have found a great shop with an amazing selection in Orlando (Knightly Spirits) … it falls short in comparison to 99 Bottles. Plus, we cannot get New Belgium beers here, yet. Which is a travesty in itself.

    Thanks for this post! Cheers!

    Wow, can’t even get New Belgium?

    I’m in NC in an area where the beer scene isn’t really kickin’. I’ve found a beer/wine speciality shop that has a better section than your avg supermarket, but still not good enough. I still have trouble finding brews like Dogfish Head, and I’m on the east coast! I saw better selection of DFH on the west coast then I do here. Sigh..

    You are truly missing out, New Belgium La Folie is one of the best sours around. No Dogfish Head, that sounds fishy.
