Best Bottle Shop: Chuck’s Bottle Shop

The people have spoken.

The array of options in this treasure trove of suds abounds. Want a monk-inspired trappist ale? Got it! Want a blackberry cider? No problem! Want a triple IPA? You get the picture! With two locations in the city—Greenwood and the Central District—hop shoppers can pop in, grab a bottle or three, and also enjoy one of the 40 to 50 brews on tap—depending on the day—from 2 Towns Ginja Ninja to Salish Sea Imperial IPA. Added bonus: There’s often a food truck nearby. 2001 E. Union St., 538-0743; 656 N.W. 85th St., 297-6212
