Johnís Market is something else, driving by you would think it were just another crummy neighborhood market, but you would be oh so wrong. Walk in, pass the stacks of wine, and wind your way into the back. They have shelves upon shelves of singles and many beer coolers as well. Imports, local micros, macros from across the US, they have it all. Where else can you find Iron City Light and Ale Smith in a single trip? I rarely walk out of Johnís without more than I should, a great shop. They also have keg sales that are reasonably priced.

Johnís Marketplace is a huge place packed with beer. If all or even most of their offerings were available in 12 ounce bottles, Iíd give full credit for selection. Most of their bottles are bombers, and while they have many hundreds if not well over a thousand beers, Iím not always sharing a bottle and donít want a bomber. Many excellent beers here. For the bottles they do have as 12-ouncers, you can buy them as singles or make your own 6-pack for a 5% discount.

I LOVE this store! They have many kinds of beers from everywhere. I favor Czech beers and I can get them in kegs to go!

Itís an old grocery store thatís overfilled with beer, wine and groceries. How they fit so much in such a tight space is beyond me. Top international selection in town. Fair price. knowledgeable and friendly peops

How do you rate Johnís? Itís like a fat girl whoís also rich. Selection is huge, but half of it is undrinkable. Prices are fair, but the place is a complete dive. (It has the smell of a cellar, and I donít mean that in a positive way.) I typically get decent service if I ask, but I also think Iíve been lied to on a number of occasions when Iím told they donít know what beer Iím talking about. I dunno, Iíll stop in once in awhile because itís on my way to a friendís house, but I wouldnít recommend it if you can go elsewhere.

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.

Well this place looks more like a trucker hangout then an amazing beer store, but it is indeed amazing. Almost certainly the best or most amount of different beers Iíve ever seen. Shelves upon shelves of it. It is a bit tight and hard to spend the hours there I would like to. Tons of local stuff, and also a strong British and Irish section. Reasonable prices. Really great place.

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.

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.

Great service, great selection - just be sure to check the bottling dates on the IPAs. A hidden gem.

Absolutely mind-blowing selection in this place, superior to even Belmont Station - probably because not too many people know of this place and some rare specialty items last much longer here. Just make damn sure (!) the IPAs are fresh as some of the stock can be sitting there a while. Super friendly and helpful staff with an obvious passion for craft beer. Canít recommend this place enough.
