I have now given up on Johnís after so many visits through the years. The selection is vast but nearly all bottles are stored WARM on shelves and out in the LIGHT. I see a lot of old releases collecting dust, and the sight of green Saison Dupont bottles sitting out in such a bright environment makes me shiver. I walked out without spending any money because I canít risk throwing it away on bottles in such bad shape. And in a town like Portland, there are so, so many other options where the beer is kept cold, out of light, and stock is rotated at a good pace. Scroll past.

This market store that looks like nothing except a place with an interest for vintage boards from the outside is actually both extraordinary and frustrating. Indeed, it probably stocks the greatest selection I have seen in any of the Pacific West Coast states. Rarities from abroad, plenty of local stuff, a lot of breweries from elsewhere in the US, there must be well above one thousand brands here. I would not be surprised if they stock twice as many labels as Belmont Station on the opposite side of Portland. Nevertheless, itís a frustrating spot for quantity seems to be ruling over quality. Indeed, a lot of the bottles we have bought and consumed within days after purchase were seriously oxidized and must have been hanging around the shelves for several months. In a land whose reputation stems before anything from hoppy beers, that does not work at all. In Portland, I generally want to discover a brewery I donít know about through their IPA and Johnís is doing them a disservice by offering old and stealeing IPAs.. although to the stores defense, rare are the products on which any bottling, fabrication or best by date is clearly mentionned. This brought forward a lot of frustration, but not enough to discount the store entirely. Only, when you go looking for rare Logdson, Lost Abbey, Deschutes, Alesmith, Alpine, Guineu, Baladin, lambics or whatever you fancy, please focus on bottles that can survive many months on the shelves.

Man, this place is a beer mecca. Loads of bottles, cases, glasses, and just general beery goodness. Iím not sure how the beer stores since itís all out under the fluorescents. There are three walls of coolers, but some of the selection in there is the same as whats on the shelves. The staff didnít know a ton when I was there, but thatís okay. I killed over an hour just staring and trying to figure out how I was going to get everything I wanted back across the border. Still, a huge selection of Oregon, Washington, and some Californian brews.

Love going here they have such a great selection. There is one draw back a lot of the foreign brews are out on the racks not in coolers. So they can get light struck and skunky. They always have what you need and the selection is awesome. Good easy going place can take kids in with you so that is good. They are very friendly and will try to get anything youíre looking for. This is a place to buy some great brews. I walked my 7 times around the place counter clockwise as I was cleansing my soul at now what I call Beer Mecca. Cheers to you Johns Market Place. You are super close to Lucky Lab also so this is a plus.

I challenge anyone to find me a better beer store in the USA. This place has it all...tons of domestic micros, and even more hard to find european bottles. I was in beer heaven here. The place is very narrow with tons of bottles, but I liked that. I really wish I could have bought more beer here.

Visited here in August í12. For a Floridian, the selection was phenomenal and affordable. You name it and they most likely have it. Everything was available in singles and categorized very nicely by country and style. Very reasonable prices. Walked out of there with 27 new beers and spent less than $75 A beer geekís paradise.

Outside what has been said, there is nothing like this place. The staff don't know jack (except they can be really friendly sometimes), the ambiance is negligible and the beer selection is incomparable. Only advice is watch the expiry date on bottles you buy. Not a big problem, but it happens.

Looks pretty unassuming from the outside, and seems like nothing special when you walk in. But, wow, what an amazing beer selection. 10 doors worth of coolers, 15 or so big rack shelves, and more displays. Seems like they have just about everything made on an ongoing basis in Belgium. The Pacific Northwest selection is awesome, the California selection is dazzling, and as you move farther east it gets slightly less amazing. Great selection of UK and some Germans, too. Awesome staff--kind, laid-back, helpful. Without a doubt itís worth the drive from Seattle, especially to see what weíve been missing on store shelves up here.

Outside look of this place is confusing and misleading. Inside is a fairly unkept wine shop, but then when you get in the back...OMFG! The ailes are small and plentiful; filled with beer from the floor to above your head. Probably everything available in bottles in Portland can be found here. The prices aren't too bad and the people know a thing or two about their stock and are very willing to help. No trip to portland is complete without visiting this place.
