APEX is what I would call a neighborhood bar. While it is in a business district it is close to many houses and I imagine many of its customers are within walking distance. But even if you are not within walking distance this is worth the trek no matter how far. The entrance is an outdoor area with plenty of seating. This leads into a large indoor bar area, and what a bar it is! There are at least 50 beers on tap, each listed alphabetically on 2 large flat screen TVs. The bartender working when I visited was not only very friendly but effortlessly answered questions that other patrons had regarding their selections. If for some reason you could not find anything on tap to your liking there were several large refrigerators behind the bar with a stellar lineup of beers, many of which are now retired. If there was food I did not try it. Of the beer bars I have visited this is at or near the top of the list of my favorites.

So I canít say enough good things about this place even if it was sorta random when we stopped in walking back from pok pok. It was the last day of there embrace the dark event and it was one of the, if not the best, tap lists Iíve ever had the pleasure drinking from. Got to try Moscow, a bunch of evil twin stouts, various west coast limited ba beers, some 2011 consecration and various iipas. I love the serving sizes because you get to try many different things and although they are generally 4-6 bucks a pop consisting the rarity of the beers it not a bad deal. The server behind the bar was great and quite friendly, there is a pretty stellar bottle selection to stay or go, and itís an awesome place to hang out although itís not for everyone as had been described by many. Also have to say they sure do support biking considering lots of space to park them and helmet racks.

Such a great find! Amazing selection, amazing service, amazing value. Amazing. A nice intimate venue with a surprisingly large variety of beer on tap and a great selection of bottles too. Nothing bad to say.

Somehow every time I go to Portland we end up here until close. They have an insane selection. They supposedly always have a secret Pliny tap, but they were out last week. Some people think the place is a little snotty, but I donít really get it. Stop being douchebags. Every bartender Iíve interacted with has been nothing but nice. Donít listen to any of it. They have a huge outdoor space and I guess a lot of people try to sneak in. If youíre visiting Portland, you should go here.

Damn this place was awesome, easily my favourite spot in Portland. 50 taps full of awesome beers from all around the world, including some rare ones. Really cheap prices, and 6oz tasters available as well. The bottle list is insane too. Sure, they are a bit more expensive than in other places, but they had some really special beers available and loads of limited releases that were sold out in other places a long time ago. And they sell them to go! So be prepared with a lot of cash when visiting this place (as cards are not accepted)...

Une grande terrasse remplie de table ŗ picnic, une sťlection qui donne des frissons en cette fin de semaine du CBC avec Wicked Week, Rare Barrel, Alpine et plusieurs autres. Les food truck se succŤdent ŗ 3 mŤtres de la terrasse et líambiance est un croisement entre le Vice & Versa et Pizza Port OB. Difficile de demander mieux ŗ Portland pour le moment.

A formidable bottle list, a fantastic tap list thatís always changing, plenty of seating, and great pleasant staff. Thereís also pinball. And graffiti. And death metal, and gangster rap. Not exactly for everyone, but truly great for those in the demographic. Thereís a big outdoor seating area with picnic tables lined up hofbrau style. There are two big roll-up garage doors that join this space with half a dozen highboys inside. You can sit outside even at night after the doors are closed. There are about 30 beers pouring, and a few hundred more in bottles behind the bar. Iím 90% sure you can take bottles to go, and get growlers filled, though we did neither of those things this weekend. Everything is well-chosen, with an emphasis on local stuff for the faucets, and things from everywhere (tons and tons of European beers) in bottles. Cash only. Keep this in mind. Thereís a very slow ATM by the door. The setting is kinda crazy. The furniture is new, and nice enough. The bar, taps, coolers, and washing stations are all very new and very nice. But the bathrooms feel kinda ancient, not least because they are covered with graffiti. The floor is mostly concrete, with a little plywood here and there. Something of a hodgepodge. You walk in through a little vestibule with four pinball machines, which change occasionally and are all well-chosen for being incredibly fun to play. You can blow through a lot of quarters here with your tipple. We hit this place twice in two days, and went through a bunch of bottles, a bunch of pints, dozens upon dozens of tasting glasses for shares, and a few bar towels, too. We had fun talking to the staff, and fun playing pinball. The beers were fantastic, and it was so fun to get our hands on them. Just about everything we cracked is something we canít get in WA. Definitely be back here every time weíre in Portland.
