West Seattle beverages: The Beer Junction opens tomorrow

Just got word from Beer Junction owner Morgan Herzog that his new store across from Jefferson Square (4707 42nd SW) opens tomorrow (Saturday) morning, 11 am. We brought you first word of the store-in-progress back in March.

4:58 PM UPDATE: Just spoke with Morgan to get full details on the merchandise and the hours as he opens – read on:

For starters – “Our opening beer count is 640,” he told us. Not all the way to the 1,000 they were hoping for, but getting there.

The non-beer merchandise consists of beverages – 55 wines (mostly from Washington state), some champagne, mead, sake, 30 different ciders, and 25 sodas.

It’ll be a “soft open” situation for the first few weeks – then, some promotions, and some tastings, will be in the works.

Hours? Tomorrow, day 1, 11 to 9. Sunday (4th of July), 10 am till “probably around 4 or 5, till things slow down.” Beer Junction will be open this Monday though usually it’ll be closed Mondays (this time, it’s because many people are off work), noon-8 pm.

After that, regular hours – Tuesdays and Wednesdays, noon-8 pm. Thursdays, 11 am-8 pm. Fridays and Saturdays, 11 am-9 pm. Sundays, 10:30 am till 5 pm or so. (Always subject to adjustment depending on how the business goes.)

    Just keep your prices low, please, and I’ll be there. BTW, I’m expecting my 401K statement shortly…I think you will see me there a lot:(

    Wow, I wish these folks well but sounds like they don’t know what they’re doing: “Soft open” for a few weeks and ambiguous, see-how-it-goes, hours. I’m already not excited having just been on the Swinery rollercoaster.

    Really though, best of luck!!

      Maple, we’ve covered dozens of business openings in the past few years and that’s fairly standard for the course. Realistic, too – to adjust once you see what the customer response/behavior tends to be – TR
