Smart staff, friendly, not snobby (unless you want them to be!)...this is my place to go for new beers that I have not tried. There are always in-store events. Morgan (the owner) is a great guy and is always willing to suggest gems that you may not know about. Parking behind the store as well as on California usually available unless you go when everybody else goes places...pick up your beer before the weekend, it is much better that way. One of the last places in WA that tapped Pliny before Russian River left the state (or the state left them), hopefully temporarily only. Of the 3 places somewhat near my place that I love (Bottleworks & Super Deli Mart), the Beer Junction is the best overall. Prices are cheaper than most places despite how nice and clean the store is kept. Great glassware and beer merch keeps me short of extra money, which is fine. This is the best bottle shop I have ever been to in all of my years of searching for quality brews.

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.
