I walked into Beer Junction on a whim, and got some of the best luck/universal karma of my life.

I was already pretty impressed with the remaining seasonals, stouts, and barleywines (my go-tos at any bottle shop), when I picked up a bottle of Pelican's Stormwatcher's Winterfest. I exclaimed over it happily when an employee walked over to share in my enthusiasm. He then confessed that they had a single case of Pelican's Mother of All Storms in the back, and asked if I would like a bottle. I nearly proposed to him in my joy of finding a bottle of MoAS in a bottle shop in Seattle, when I had more or less made plans to drive to Bend, OR next year in order to get a bottle. I didn't even think that Pelican shipped out cases of MoAS to Seattle when, lo and behold, the bottle was in my hand.

In addition to this stellar catch, I also snared a couple of other unexpected and coveted beers on my list (DFH'S World Wide Stout being another) and found out about an upcoming barrel aged fest with some BA's that I am dying to have on tap. This bottle shop is the best random encounter of my life.

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.
