Belmont Station is easily the best bottle shop that Iíve been to in Portland. They have hundreds of beers arrayed in a fairly easy to figure out arrangement of coolers and shelves. Some tasty beers that Iíve picked up here include the Sam Adams Imperial Series, Laughing Dog Alpha Dog, a couple Heater Allen beers and some Dieu du Ciel. I also had a chance to sample the Ellezelloise Hercule Stout on tap there, and that was an interesting experience to say the least. Their tap list is about a dozen handles, but theyíre generally well thought out and often things you canít get elsewhere in town. My only real complaint is that due to the storeís popularity it can get a little packed in there, but Iím generally pretty good at squeezing through big groupings of people, so thatís a fairly minor complaint.

I have stopped in many times over the years I think everytime I am in pdx. Great bottle selection and a few good taps. My only complaint is the cash price vs the credit card price. You get charged a percent if you us a card. Hey plastic is cost of doing business. But this does stop me from buying stuff from them I just have to remember to bring cash.

The place is a Portland institution. A well organized selection. A discount for buying with cash. They have one of the better selections of glassware from Europe and the U.S. Itís one of my favorite places to visit when in the area.

Kind of hard to rate this place, as it is more like two places in one - half beer store and half taproom/cafe - both sides are very small - beer store side is, as noted, quite impressive - well selected regionals and imports, mostly in bombers, but there are some six packs, too - prices are quite high and their policy of having one price when you pay cash and another, slightly higher price if you pay using plastic is some serious bullshit - the cafe is nice - impressive draft list and one cask - prices there are more reasonable than the bottles, although you can bring anything from the store over to consume on-site (but they add an "uncorking" charge of 1.50, which again, I find to be serious bullshit) - small menu of soup and sandwiches - food is merely okay - servers are attentive, but a little indifferent - despite my gripes, it really is an impressive place and one I would recommend to anyone traveling through Portland - it just isnít "world class."

2010-06. Modest walk up the road from Horse Brass. Selection was impressive, we bought less than half of what we would have liked to, with a range of Oregon, US, and European brews. Prices seemed average for most things with a few being pretty pricey. Staff was a bit cantankerous at first but warmed up later. The younger guy was more helpful. Stayed for a couple at the cafe next door. Bottles were cost + $1.50, which is tough to beat at any bar. Had what I initially thought was a very expensive sandwich but turned out to be quite good, and bigger than expected. Wifi is not for customers, which was annoying since I wanted to check a few Ratebeer listings, oh well. Definitely a must stop in Portland.

I loved this place. We were visiting from San Francisco and wanted to try some local beers that we canít find at home, and the clerks were more than happy to spend a significant amount of time sharing their favourites with us. Very kind, very helpful. Great selection - I found a few new favourite beers of my own!

Great little combination of a beer-focused bistro with a bottle shop. All in the same business. This rating is for the bottle shop. Clean, tidy, well-organized. Half the beer cooled, half on shelves. Great slection. Definitely an emphasis on hard to get stuff and imports, with some fall-back shelf spots dedicated to better west coast craft brews. The light is a little bit bright but I seriously doubt it skunks anything, they must turn over beers pretty quickly, and they stock precious few high-risk-for-skunking beers. Iíve had livelier conversations in bottle shops, but to be fair, theyíd just had a record sales day the day before. Musta been pretty tired, overheard someone say they had pretty much a constant flow of people (Abyss release day). Great place and Iíll definitely be back.

Very cool, geeky place where I easily could have spent more time and money. It was a warm summer day, so we enjoyed our pints at the table out front. If I ever move in Portland, I will first look for homes within a couple of blocks of this place. Being able to walk to this joint for a pint and a six-pack to take home ought to be any beer geekís fantasy.
