Pleasant, fairly low-key bar and bottle shop in N.Portland area. Bar seating for 8-10 people, and tables for maybe 30 or so. Open old dark brick walls, stone tile floor, and weird shiny red tiles on the ceiling. Friendly bartender, Mychal, was quick and efficient with orders. Not too crowded on a Tuesday afternoon. Eight taps, with a decent variety of styles. 400+ bottles in the long row of coolers along one wall, maybe half from western US. Good place .

Nice little beer store that we popped into whilst heading between Upright and Breakside at around 2.30/3pm on Saturday 25/05/13.
Thereís a counter and small bar in the far left corner as you enter, toliet facilities also available which came in handy on this crawl!
5 beers on tap, largely local, we took on offerings from Fort George and Hop Valley. A good few hundred bottles, plenty of local stuff and some good national picks including plenty of Russian River offerings. They had Pliny on tap the day before we visited.
One guy working the store on his own who was friendly and knew his beers.
Overall a solid bottle shop where you can tick and shop !

Nice bar and shop in the Mississippi area of Portland. Nice staff and lots of good selection, including a few taps.

Tiny fucking place, with no more than ~6 coolers, or so. Couple of taps. They had, as a few folks have said, a couple of gems I didnít see anywhere else. Plus, the chick working the bar was a little uninformed, but I think sheíll be just fine in the coming months. Anyways, relatively nice selection, given the space. I wouldnít head here for your main haul, but Iíd give it a shot, just to make sure that you didnít miss out on anything special that quickly sold-out at Belmont. Not much to this place.

This newer shop is a well run, clean, well stocked shop off of Missisppi, about a 10 minute walk from the N Prescott stop on the Yellow Max line. Mike is a very outgoing guy who will make sure you get everything you are looking for. Heck the guy will even sell you some stamps. Lots of rarer HOTDís, Russian River Supplication and Consecration, all of the localís you could possibly want including the Uprightís, Bouvelard Smokestacks, HUB, Laurelwood, 10 Barrel, Lompoc. Prices are very good and the whole package makes it worth the walk, plus you can stop and rest at Prost and Fire on the Mountain along your way. Portlanders get out there and support your guys like Mike, heís giving his all to improve your already phemoninal beer scene.

*Full disclosure: This review was done before I bought into the shop* If I could delete this review, I would.
Look forward to see what this place will become in a few years. Mike is a great guy. Just expanded with another cooler to around 400 or so well chosen beers. I feel fortunate to live only a block away. He plans to expand eventually and offer taps, I hope it happens.

This place is going to be great once it reaches its potential. One of the only offerings for bottleshops up this way in North Portland. Selection is on the smaller side right now, but really refined. Youíll find offerings from Oskar Blues to Russian River. He even had in the hype beer, Temptation, from Russian River and was selling it a couple bucks cheaper than where I have seen it elsewhere.

Recently opened beer mart. Selection is only so-so now, but they plan to expand. Service is super friendly, they have seasonals and rare beers, and plan to add taps. On street parking only and is often hard to find.
