I believe this was the fourth bottle shop I ever went to. It was really early on in my craft beer journey, but I could still understand that this was special.

I’ll start by saying that the owner, Morgan, is a stand out guy. He loves beer, is very knowledgeable, and wants to help you just as much as he wants to make money.

Selection is as good or better than any in the area, and prices are right around where they should be. I like the arrangement, it’s organized by style of beer instead of brewer or region.

My only problem with this store is that it isn’t closer to me. It’s just a place that feels comfortable.

This is an excellent beer place. I spent a fair amount of time talking with the owner, he pulled Older Viscosity from the back for me, he was clearly knowledgeable about beer and about his stock. Other staff was helpful and friendly. Selection is world class. They are the only place I've seen carrying Rodenbach Grand Cru in like six months.

Everything about this place is good. Prices are pretty much exactly what you would expect (slightly above grocery store prices on items they both carry).

I will definitely go back if I'm ever in the area.

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.

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.
