I hit up the Beer Junction last weekend while I was in West Seattle and was duly impressed. There are a handful of these excellent bottle-shop-cum-taprooms in Seattle and, like the others, Beer Junction is a hell of a place. The beers are all organized by style and just about everything is in a refrigerator case, which I like.

I picked up a few bottles that I haven't seen elsewhere around town, and while I might have stayed for a pint the place was absolutely jam-packed on a Saturday afternoon. I will absolutley be coming back here, perhaps on a quieter day, to check out their tap offerings.

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.

This place has a great selection in the cooler, a great selection on the taps, they have cool beer events, and the staff is fun. They even brew, and their anniversary ale was delicious. Visit here. They’re a relatively new player in Seattle, and I tend to like a place like this more than Bottleworks. Their vibe is are a little more young and almost hipster, whereas Bottleworks has the typical beards-and-beer-bellies vibe. When we visited, they were setting up for a tasting that night. They served the same IPA on regular draft, nitro, cask, and randall.

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.
