A nice, new beer store for the West Seattle crowd. A comparable selection to all the other elite bottle shops in Seattle. Beer is organized via style, in coolers that line the shop. There is also a nice recommended/reserve section. All bottles are bought as singles, so you can easily mix your own six pack to whatever your heart desires.
The two things that make this shop stand out are the service and their email list. Morgan, the proprietor, is there all the time. He is quick to greet you, and great for helping you out with suggestions and/or finding the beer you seek. He's also incredibly down to earth - the Beer Junction is the least pretentious craft beer shop I've been to in the area.
Also, their mailing list is top notch. If you're on it, you receive emails every other week, featuring upcoming events, new beers they have put into inventory, and when they receive a couple cases of Pliny.

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.
