Just like everyone else says, a grungy ass market that from the outside looks like it would only carry BMC, but on the inside is a bottle mecca. 300+ bottles isnít even close to right, I would guess well over 700 different bottles. Doesnít have the vintages like bottleworks does, but still an amazing selection.

This is mecca. I love shopping here. Well my taste buds do, but my wallet doesnít. I spend entirely too much money when I am here. The staff is friendly and helpful and the beer is plentiful.

I heard this was the holy grail of bottle shops I donít agree. Really watch expiry dates and prices here. They had oddities I didnít see anywhere else which was nice and lots of dust bunnies on things that should have been put on sale years ago. Hey they should clean thier coolers they stink, have broken glass in them and are moldy.

Too much beer. It pained me. Literally and financially. After filling up two baskets to overflowing I was still dizzy and uncertain. (then lugging it all to car in a deluge was comic. What a place!

David is a really good guy, cares about his customers, and he is one of the top players in the Portland beverage industry. Beers are not stored out of light, but this is a grocery store - and you canít beat it for a grocery store with great selection. Lots of wine, too. The staff is great.

I wanted to like this place, they almost have what it takes to be a beer mecca but IMHO they fall short. First the selection, it is amazing, they have tons of beer from all over the place, and they also seem to have lots of older vintages and such. This however leads us to the first issue, treatment of the beer. It seems that they might over order and as such stock does not rotate very quickly. Also when I was there it was about 85 degrees in the store and most of the beer is not kept in coolers. I noticed a great many beers on out of the shelves that had tons of dust. Now this would be OK if it werenít for the temperature extremes. I bought about 10 bottles, 2 were severely degraded due to storage problems. The others were OK. But that is a 20% loss. Whatever you do, do not go look at the produce section. It is the absolute worst looking lot of produce I have ever seen. What wasnít brown and wilting, was partially smashed or in some other way compromised. Bottom-line, excellent selection, but proceed with caution.

This is beer lovers place. Nowhere else could find the selection of local and imported beers. The bomber department is amazing. They even sell Terminal Gravity IPA in the keg. The best IPA on the planet.

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.

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.

This place is heaven. Endless isles filled with beer. Boasting over 900 varieties and Portland's best selection, they know what's up. Also, they seem to rarely run out of things because they carry cases upon cases, and display them on the shelf as opposed to a single bottle. Great selection of NW beers, Belgians, and especially beers from Great Brittan. Staff isn't that knowledgable and sometimes the isles seem disorganized, but make no mistake this is one of the best bottleshops you will ever go to.
