BA from PA in Seattle for the holidays.
I had actually missed this place the day before. The location is small, but very well stocked. Most of the midwest/western breweries were represented, although significantly weak on the english / new england breweries, and surprisingly strong representation of meads. (Sadly nothing from Magpie).
As for the prices, mainstream brews were inflated about $2-$4 per bottle, while more niche beers were about average price range for an upscale bottle shop.
The service was knowledgeable, and affable.
Other notes: apparently this place runs tastings every week on Thursday nights.

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.
