marcus  (180) Sacramento, California | May 11, 2010
This new bar is sort of patterned after Toronado in San Francisco, but is newer, cleaner and not as funky. There are about 30 mostly excellent and reasonably priced brews on tap, mostly local and Belgian. There is a nice bar with flat screen TVs, several tables and a large outdoor patio. The barkeep was very friendly and helpful.

Very large selection and they seem to move fast. The beer selection board is amazing and seems to be always updating. Very IPA centric, but guess that’s not so surprising. Probably should have sat on the patio as they inside was fine to start but turned into a jocky sausage fest a bit later. Big emphasis on metal on the stereo. But anyway, we came for the beer and that was great.

Marheb  (233) San Diego, California | April 17, 2015
Une grande terrasse remplie de table à picnic, une sélection qui donne des frissons en cette fin de semaine du CBC avec Wicked Week, Rare Barrel, Alpine et plusieurs autres. Les food truck se succèdent à 3 mètres de la terrasse et l’ambiance est un croisement entre le Vice & Versa et Pizza Port OB. Difficile de demander mieux à Portland pour le moment.

Strebs  (209) St. Louis, Missouri | April 2, 2015
Great vibe in the outside area, but the inside was less than appealing. The tap list was amazing. It appears that the popularity of APEX attracts poseurs who can detract from the experience.

slowrunner77  (168) Reno, Nevada | March 25, 2015
kind of a dingy hole in the wall type place, but the beer list has always been way above solid. can’t speak for the food, but just for beer and knowledgeable service? Yes..

Amazing draft selection. Also bottle selection was interesting and had a chance try couple of ones from Russian River. Also Boneyard Notorious on tap was one of the best beers in the world. So overall excellent place.

Steve_0  (142) Denver, Colorado | August 30, 2014
Great draft selection and atmosphere inside. It was especially fun when we visited because the World Cup was playing, so it was a packed house. Small to medium size selection of bottles, but they are all quality. The nice ones can be very pricey ($75 bottles of Cantillon), but I could see 3-4 guys going in on some things just to try. Found bottles here that were long gone everywhere else. Service can be shotty, but its a must-stop when visiting Portland.

Probably my favorite pure beer bar by far. Plenty of outdoor seating, as well as inside seating if the weather is crap. The draft list is always updating and always awesome. Plenty of bottles to buy as well, even though some are pretty outrageously priced. But, if you want to try something that is long gone around town or was a limited release form a year or two ago, they may have it. I have always had great service here. As mentioned it is cash only and you can bring food in. A must when in Portland.

Beershine  (813) The Sunshine State, Florida | August 4, 2014
Only came here once, so trying not to gush but I loved this place! Wish we could have revisited. I loved they had Adambier on the same taplist as swill I would never drink. Actually the selection was pretty deep with a great variety of styles and although not all local, there were lots of Oregonian brews. Loved the unpretentious lively atmosphere, the huge patio. Loved the self-serve model. Had to bat my eyelashes just to get a wee taste before buying something (normally they want you to buy a taster) but otherwise the service was pretty good considering how busy it was.
