This place has the best selection Iíve ever seen, and Iíve been to a few places. Not only is the bottle shop amazing, but the bar portion had an amazing collection of one off beers from local and regional breweries, some of them brand new. It was a bit weird that not all the beers were available as small ppurs, not sure why. Reasonable prices. Good experience.

Adjacent to the Horse Brass. This is the place for single bottles... similar to Liquid Solutions, the shelves are covered in single bottles with price tags, and you just tell the employee what you want and they will dig it out of the back. The selection is wide, but not on the scale of Johnís Marketplace. Prices are a bit higher as well. Small glassware collection, but one of the better places on the west coast for rare bottles. Sometimes they are out of some highly desired bottles, so call around.

Stopped in to do some bottle shopping and to visit the famous Belmont Station. Actually, some friends in Seattle used to drive to/from the SF area and would go through here and pick me up some Midnight Sun and a few other things (before we got Midnight Sun in CA) so it was about time to visit. They;ve got a bar/tasting room on one side where they occasionally do events like their sour fest. On the other side is the bottle shop which is pretty good. Huge selection and when I was there the Cantillon craze hadnít quite reached Portland (in itís full effect anyway) so there were some Lou Pepe bottles sitting out. I saw plenty of Mikkeller and some Fantome but also plenty of PNW locals that I had never even heard about. Prices are about normal for a bottle shop, service was friendly but didnít do much since they were busy ringing people up, and itís in a nice neighborhood. Would definitely visit again.

(Visited 02/2010): Belmont Station is my kind of beer destination. It is located on the eastern outskirts of Portland on Stark Street. There is street parking and a small lot but a walk may be in order given how busy this place seems to be even on weekday evenings. Upon entering the store after passing the "1000 beers" sign it is almost sensory overload. The bottle shop is lined with coolers and has shelves in the middle. In addition there is a small section devoted to glassware and accessories. In an adjacent room there is a small bar/tap room with seating. The beer selection in the store is outstanding. The shelves/coolers are somewhat divided by region/country, with the Oregon stuff being in the first cooler. Pretty much any crafy brewery you can think of is represented, but just a few are Old Lompoc, 10 Barrel, Deschutes, Rogue, Roots, and Hair of the Dog from Oregon. Other US microbrews like Stone, Alesmith, Lost Coast, and on and on are available. In addition, imports from Belgium, Germany, Russia etc are represented. Another bonus on our visit was a tasting table set up by Old Lompoc with samples. In the tap room is a great array of beer from the likes of Old Lompoc, 10 Barrel and others. The atmosphere in the tap room is darker and more conducive to relaxing with a pint. Also an incredible array of tap handles second only to Falling Rock in Denver. Service on both sides of the store is excellent. We did not try any food on our visit. Overall I really cannot find much I would change about this place. It is an absolute must-visit on a Portland visit.

A nice store which should satisfy the traveller with quite a few rarities. I presume they started this Cafe since they moved on Stark St. The 15 taps involved serious affairs like Upright Saison, La Folie, Heater Allen Pils, all in tip top condition. Attentive and careful service. Selectionís highlights included Midnight Sun, Pelican, Heater Allen, Roots... A more than satisfying place that has a neighborhood feel akin to West Lakeview in Chicago.

Visited on 07/11/12 around 11.30 am. We were the only people shopping for beers at this time and the adjoining bar was not open. The store guy was friendly and offered a few suggestions to us. Good well organised selection, easy to find everything.

Knowing I couldnít bring anything back to TN at the end of the week, I had to limit what I should buy here. This probably was a good idea because I couldíve spent a crap load of cash. Prices are very fair, most things cheaper than in NC way on the west coast, but something a little higher. Ultimately the lack of sales tax makes a great value anyway for the out of state traveler. Anything in bottles is available in singles, though cans must be purchased in 4 or 6 packs. Selection is super expansive. Some of the imports and less popular micros may not be in heavy rotation, but the date stamps I checked and the new seasonals all appeared fresh. This is a must stop bottle shop.

What can I say that hasnít already. Belmont Station freakiní rocks. Sooo much good beer can be taken away from here. Or drink on premise at the bar. It may not be the largest selection but makes up for it in quality. Itíd be way too easy to bulk up the credit card with so much potential goodness to be purchased.

Very awesome shop sort of out of the way from downtown PDX. I actually had a car so pretty easy to get to but can be a pain if you are trying to bus over here. Selection is out of this world. Similar insane volume of bottles as Samís Quik Shop in Durham, NC. But the quality of bottles here is pretty much superlative: Russian River, Lost Abbey, Struise, Deschutes, Firestone, Alesmith. It also has a very cool tap room that has mega fresh IPAs/DIPAs. Really, this is a rite of passage for any beer geek. Service is outstanding and all of the staff know more about beer than I do- very passionate and fun to talk with. If you are visiting PDX, you cannot leave without a stopover here.

What can you say about this place that hasnít been said. Great place, probably second only to Bottleworks for selection and care. I picked up a bunch of Alesmith and a bunch of Double IPAs while I was there. Friendly staff and decent prices. There were a few local meads as well, which is always a nice touch.
