Finding a good tap and bottle shop around Seattle isn’t all that difficult. We’re fortunate to have several options for where to go beer shopping while enjoying a few pints on tap at the same time. One of those places that stands out for me in particular, however, is The Beer Junction in West Seattle. Offering Seattle’s largest selection of more than 1,300+ different beers (plus cider and mead) and an incredible 70 taps of beer, cider, mead and wine, The Beer Junction has become my favorite after-work destination to enjoy a few cold ones from their always excellent and diverse tap selection and check out what’s new in bottles and cans.
Each year, as their anniversary approaches, The Beer Junction teams up with a local brewery to create a special anniversary beer to help them celebrate. Last year it was Cinq Houblon, a Saison brewed by Sound Brewing out on the Kitsap peninsula. The year before that it was Black Sands Coconut Cream Imperial Stout, from Fort George Brewing in Astoria, Oregon. I’m still aging a bottle of that one in my cellar at home.
