This is the best beer store Iíve had the pleasure of visiting. Itís fairly large. There is plenty of room to walk around without bumping into anyone. The coolers are huge and well-lit, so itís very easy to browse. They have a huge selection and organize their beers well. They have twenty beers on tap and give you the choice of a four ounce sampler or a full glass. They use the correct glassware and sell more glassware than any shop Iíve visited. While I was shopping/drinking, I chatted with the owner and everyone on the staff. These guys are super cool! Everyone was knowledgeable, friendly, down-to-earth, and treated me and the other customers with careful attention. BONUSES: They let you bring outside food in and they have a pint holder attached to the shopping carts, so you can drink while shopping.

Over 1300+ beers in the collection and over 2000 beers including the seasonal rotations. Been a long-term customer at The Beer Junction and will always make this my go-to place for beer. The ambiance and friendly service is what makes this bottle shop stand out from the rest. 35+ rotating taps, including 8 cider taps, 2 wine taps, a nitro tap and cask beer!

Easily my favorite bottle shop in town. Huge selection, arranged by style, including a lot of glassware. Most beers carry ratebeer shelftags. 20 rotating taps featuring a nice variety of local and not-so-local beer. Service is great. Prices are typical for Seattle, but thereís a frequent buyer program that gives you a discount on your next order after spending a certain amount in the store. New arrivals and current taplist are frequently updated on Facebook and twitter. My favorite part about this place is that itís utterly unpretentious. The owner is extremely enthusiastic about beer and very helpful. Regardless of your beer exposure or expertise, you will feel welcome here, as evidenced by the steady stream of happy customers.

A friend of mine in West Seattle brought me to this place. This is easily one of the best beer stores Iíve ever had the pleasure of going to. HUGE selection and very well organized mostly by beer style. Great mead and cider selection too. Choice taps in their taproom and a family business. Husband and wife are always there and are very helpful. I canít say enough good things about these guys. The majority of beer stores should learn from this one. GO THERE.

Hot diggity damn. I love the fact that nearly all of their beer is fridged, so they can control the light and temp conditions. The bottle selection is amazing and varied - there is actually quite a few of every genre around. Itís a bit overwhelming, actually, as you need to spend some time here to really absorb the whole collection and understand what all is there. Great stop.

Unbelievable selection. As good as anything in town. And, given the bottle shops in this town, thatís going some. Beautifully organized. And, given the bottle shops in this town, thatís...a nice change of pace. Itís not that the others arenít organized, or are disorganized. Itís that this place is organized especially well. Walk in, and to your left are the lightest beers in the house. Keep walking clockwise, and they get darker and darker. By the time you get all the way back around to your 6:00 position, youíre walking through huge stouts, belgians, barleywines, and special releases. And they do indeed get the special releases. They get their hands on the good stuff here. The prices are fair, for a bottle shop. You might pay less at a supermarket for the more common items (when supermarkets carry them), but you wonít pay less, not much less, anyway, anywhere for hard-to-get stuff. Best of all, the guy behind the counterís a true believer. He loves turning people on to good beer and has built this business from back to front with that in mind. The beer noob and the beer snob can rub elbows happily here. Cheers to this great addition to the Seattle beer scene.
