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.

I somehow haven’t rated Apex, yet, so I need to rectify this error. 1st: They have done their best to take on the vibe of the Toronado in SF (though it seems more like the SD location to me.) Personally, I love it. I’ve never had a bad visit at either, location, and in fact, most of my visits have been good. So the service for me gets a little higher score. Bartenders tend to be fast if you know what you want, and if they’re not busy, I’ve had several good chats at a dead bar. Selection is superlative, and you only need to check the taplist to see this for yourself. Prices are fair for the area, sometimes low, sometimes high. It evens out. No food, but you can either bring in your own, (such as the great Double Dragon across the street) or get something from the Mexican place next door. They have a little walkway they can use to call out your name. It’s really a great place and worth visiting if you’re in the area. Top beer bar in Portland. (Not counting bottle shop/bars such as Beermongers or Belmont Station).

APEX may be a bit loud if you’re there during peak hours, both from young people shouting over tables and from the loud music on the speakers. Except for that, which is a minus in my unpublished Book of Good Beer Places, APEX gets top score for its efficient service, excellent bottle beer menu (including most Belgian lambics) and the amazing draught beer menu which listed among other things Pliny the Elder, Djævlebrygg Nekron, North Coast Old Rasputin, Petrus Aged Pale, La Fin du Monde and many many more. Surely, this must be the ultimate beer bar in Portland? Visited: 2014-07-21

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)...

Huge tap selection on a digital board, 250 bottles and a pinball arcade, what isn’t too like? Another annoying cash only spot, but the server was accommodating to my ticking by giving me half pours so I could tick several Boneyard and Crux beers, honestly too many for me to even get to. The bottles are on the rarer side but they will cost you a pretty penny. Didn’t really get the feel inside, outside had a better vibe. Loved this spot and depending what mood I’m in would be here or Horse Brass all day.

Bitchin’ bee haul with a huge patio. Incredible tap selection. Didn’t even get to investigate the bottle list as we were having way too much fun.

Surprised I hadn’t rated... went 3 times on a week trip to Portland. The list is fantastic for an east coaster (and I’d assume generally). Russian Rivers, one-offs, seasonals, all the locals - never got a chance to explore the bottles - but didn’t need to with the tap list. Cash only, but no biggie. The bartenders were a bit standoffish at first, but talked it up after a bit. Knew their shit. Big wide open setup was never crowded when I visited. Got tacos next door and sat out on a picnic bench drinking amazing brew. Worth it’s reputation.

Gription79  (53) Bountiful, Utah | January 4, 2014
Fantastic. Just fantastic. The selection was amazing, with prices that were hard to believe. Cash only, so be prepared, but at $3 for a world class pint it is a small price to pay (get it? GET IT?) Would love to see this place with warmer weather and the huge patio area opened up. A highlight on an already amazing beer tour of Portland.
