Beer, Wine & Spirits
The craft beer and microbrew movement has exploded over the past few years with an unbelievable quality and range of flavors. The Pacific Northwest is particularly known for its great microbrew and craft beer brewing tradition. We carry a wide variety of local quality-made brews in addition to excellent beers from around the US and the world.
Celebrate each season with a cold one. We make sure to stock seasonal beers so you'll have beer on hand that is appropriate for the time of year, whether it's crisp and pale beer for summertime on the patio, or a dark and earthy one for the short days of winter.
From craft brews to your favorite six-pack, we carry an extensive array of possibilities to quench your beer-loving thirst.
There is a great article about the five elements that go into craft beer styles on craftbeer.com. Read the whole thing if you are a craft beer fan as it's very enlightening, but here's a brief summary of the five elements:
- Origin/Region - German-style, Belgian-style, English-style, American-style, Belgo-American
- Color - Light/Pale, Amber, Brown, Black
- Special Ingredients - Chocolate, Coffee, Fruit, Herb and Spices
- Yeast - Ales, Lagers
- Vessel/Vintage/Volume - Vessel: Barrel type - Vintage: most beers are meant to be enjoyed fresh but some styles can develop positively when aged - Volume: flavor or strength
Featured Beer of the Season
(is not a beer)
from San Juan Seltzer, Seattle, WA
Every once in a while we like to mix things up in the beer category, so we're proud to introduce a local addition to our beer category that's not a beer, but a spiked seltzer.

San Juan Seltzer offers the lowest calories of any hard or spiked seltzer on the market at 85 calories, zero sugar and zero carbs per 12-ounce serving. Each refreshing can is all-natural, gluten-free, 4.2 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), and inspired exclusively by fruit that is indigenous to the Pacific Northwest, including: Huckleberry, Fuji Apple, Raspberry-Cran, and Pure.
Champagne & Sparkling Wines
“What did Dom Perignon say to fellow monks after he invented champagne? ... Come quickly, I am tasting the stars.”
Champagne has always been a luxury chosen for celebration and as one of the finer things in life, for the pursuit of pleasure and a little self-indulgence. Nothing adds sparkle to the holidays like a bottle of celestial, exquisitely effervescent champagne or prosecco or luscious, bright, and bubbly sparkling wine.
Sparkling wines are for all seasons and all reasons. Brighten any family celebration including weddings, baptisms, graduations or retirements. Elevate any meal, whether it is with family or good friends. Drink champagne when you’re in love or not, in victory or defeat and our favorite reason, “just because!”
Ken’s Market Queen Anne understands our customers want quality and value and we try to provide a variety of champagnes and sparkling wines from Spain, Italy, Australia and France where it all began.

Featured Wine of the Season
Pampelonne Sparkling Wine Cocktails
from Pampelonne, New York, NY
Pampelonne's goal was to create a sparkling wine cocktail with fine French wine that was light, crisp, and not so sweet, so you could have a few without feeling heavy. It had to be portable, so you could drink it whenever you wanted, straight out of a can. They avoided overly sweet flavors and harkened back to old-world cocktails while adding a modern twist. After hundreds of batches and some glorious failures, they created their first beauty - the Rosé Lime. Try all our stunning flavors. George from the Beer, Wine and Spirits Dept. says, that he challenges you to find an activity, time, place, food, or drinking buddy this drink doesn't pair with!
Pampelonne is inspired by the most sophisticated yet carefree beach in Saint Tropez with the same name, and the unique sparkling rosé that people drink there.
Natural flavors of ambrosial Elderflower, Juniper & Meyer lemon delicately folded into fine French wine.
Natural flavors of Passion fruit, grapefruit & Kaffir lime delicately folded into fine French wine.
Natural flavors of Italian bitters, Blood orange orgeat & Orgeat of almond delicately folded into fine French wine.
Blood Orange Spritz
Natural flavors of Kaffir lime, Cinchona bitters & Blood orange delicately folded into fine French wine.
At Ken's Market Queen Anne, we strive to carry a comprehensive array of excellent liquor brands and high-end spirits. You'll find the distilled spirits needed for all tastes and occasions: vodka, whiskey, tequila, gin, bourbon, liqueurs, rum and scotch.
