Great place with huge selection of local, national and international beer. I would say it's Seattle's largest and most diverse selection. I've been to Bottleworks, 99 Bottles and Full Throtttle and prefer The Beer Junction.
The owner Morgan knows his beer and is always there to help out with any questions you have and seems to always be spot on with his recommendations. The place has a great laid back and inviting feel to it. You never feel unwelcomed. Some other places aorund the Seattle area have a certain "attitude" feel to them and are not that welcoming. Morgan and his staff go out of their way to help everyone out.
The new store has been open a few months now and it's a huge improvement over the first location. Not that the original location was bad but the new location is outstanding. More coolers full of beer, 18 constantly rotating taps and great service. About the only negative is that you have to be quick when something you want comes up on tap. Everything tends to go fast! Guess that's the price of running a great business.
Overall it's the best beer store in the Seattle area!

This was my only stop in Seattle so I can't compare it to other places in the city, but I picked because it is rated so high on BA. The room in front is small with a bar and a few tables but it is very comfortable. I like how the chalkboard is organized by lighter beers, stouts, odds beers, but it was a bit hard to read some of them and I would have liked a bit more of a description.
The long space past the bar is all coolers and a nice little wall of glassware and growlers of many sizes. You will get to visit many times if you stay for a while as the bathrooms is out the backdoor and down the hallway.
They have a great and diverse selection on tap but you can also grab a bottle from the cooler to drink aswell. I like to drink ice water during a beer session and their water was a little self-serve pitcher in the corner.
They don't have a kitchen but they will give you menus to local places. They now have a deal that you can order from the taco place next door, through the bartender, pay the bartender and the taco cook will walk the food over to you. It was really handy and very tasty.
This is a great place and even on a Monday night it was pretty full of people but it has a good energy in the space.

Beer Junction would be my go-to store if it was closer to where I live. Friendly, helpful, enthusiastic staff; a clean, well-lit space; regular beer events; reasonable pricing; well-organized, large inventory; weekly emails listing new arrivals. You can shoot them an email about a particular beer you're interested in, and usually get a response within the hour.
