Stopped here during my spring break road trip from So Cal. to Vancouver, BC. This store is located at the south side of an industrial yet hipster-felt area of Seattle.
Selection is impeccable, with just about everything that's distributed in Washington. Diamond Knot, Boundary Bay, Roslyn, Iron Horse, Dick's... all the ones that you can only dream of outside of the state of WA.
Service is great, the lady at the counter chatted with me a bit since I'm from out of state. Very friendly the helpful.
This is a great shop in a very beautiful city and I'll go back next time if I'm in the Emerald City again (which probably will be a long time from now).

Stopped by for the first time today. 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 but not annoying in anyway. 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! I drink and review immediately. 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.

A bit pricey and inconvenient to get to, but the owner is nice, and the facebook site does a good job keeping updated. You can get the rare beers here. Overall though, it’s nothing you can’t find at one of the other Seattle bottleshops, and it’s usually a bit more pricey. I still shop here on occasion.

I've been to this place a couple of times now, when I've been in the city. Somewhat out of the way, in what strikes me as a recently reclaimed industrial area in the south city. It's not that large, but the atmosphere is what I like in a bottle shop: beer, beer related things and beer (along with some wine/cider/other alcohol stuff) all with a... lived in? kind of feel? That's not the exact words Im looking for, but you can probably get the idea. Not some sprawling soulless STORE (heaven forbid!!), but a smaller space, lots of wood, beer taking up almost all of the space, with character and shit. Found a number of really good stuff that I hadn't come across elsewhere (wasn't SCOURING the city, but have looked at other stuff as well), the owner I believe (who has been there both times I've been in), offered us help if we needed it, but was not overly pushy. We looked by ourselves and picked some stuff out, then asked her advice/opinions on a couple of things, and she clearly was a beer person who had a store, not just a business person who just happened to sell beer. A little more expensive for some of the items, but I've found that to be true at most of the bottle shops I've been to in the city, and besides: i'd rather pay a little more for something I want than not have access to it at all.

Checked this place out after grabbing lunch at Jules Mae last fall.
Bottles, bottles, everywhere! In coolers, in boxes, on top of boxes. One gets the impression there's not a lot of storage space in the back, so it all goes on the salesroom floor!
Selection is good, not great for the area. There were a number of beers I can't get in Spokane, but would not be out of place at Bottleworks. Still, if I lived in the neighborhood it'd be my go-to place.
One employee on duty, was friendly and looked up things I couldn't find (none of which they had at the moment).
A nice bottleshop that would draw rave reviews where I live, but is simply good without being great in Seattle.

Stopped by while in the area visiting the oldest pub in Seattle, was not impressed by the staff, their knowledge, their selection or much of anything. It is a bottle shop where there are no other bottle shops, that is what allows this place to thrive. Perhaps I am spoiled by The Beer Junction but I do not consider myself a beer snob or particularly particular when it comes to what I want or expect from a bottle shop but there is little to be desired from this joint, skip it unless you have nowhere else to pick up craft beer in S. Seattle.

Been here a few times and think I can give a fair assessment.
Atmosphere: Has a gritty feel to it that I appreciate. Never have felt rushed or uncomfortable. Good beer talk with the staff on a couple of occasions.
Quality: Tend to have a very solid local and more generally West Coast beers. Always new stuff to take a look at. Some rarities from time to time that they send emails about to let people on their distribution list know about.
Service: In general, friendly staff that is helpful for recommendations and knowledgable about their products. Had one experience where an employee told information about a bottle limit that conflicted with their email blast.
Selection: Very good compared to most stores in the area. There is almost always some new stuff in the store.
Value: A wee bit more pricey than some of the other shops in the area, but usually fair.

I've been able to stop at Full Throttle a few times, as it wasn't that out of the way on my commute home from work in the past.
One recent stop was to pick up my first bottle of Pliny the Elder, which they'd tweeted about that day. I'm not sure if it was the same stop, but I snagged two Duvel tulips for $5 each, as all their glassware is $5.
A very nice selection of beer (and wine). They have a stamp program where $100 spent gets you 11% off your next purchase.
I haven't had the opportunity to hit all the bottle shops in the area, but I do really like FTB's service, selection, and atmosphere. Copious tantalizing updates via Twitter and Facebook don't hurt, either.
