I stop in here often when working in the area. A great place if you can find a seat. Usually packed when school is going. Taps are usually good and there are always unique brews in the coolers............................................................. Review of new Bier Stein on Willamette Street - Wow!!! Plenty of seating and room to move around. Clean and modern without losing the charm of the old place. Lots of new taps. Very impressed. New score of 90.

A great place to buy all sorts of bottled beer (local, regional, national, and international). The bar always has a great selection of beers on tap, and the workers are happy to give free tasters. The patrons seem to be devout locals, and you canít help but feel like you are being judged by their hazy eyes.

College town. Quite the distance from Portland. Nice drive, though. Open space. As you walk in there are chairs to the left, and couple of bar stools to the right, where, you guessed it, the taps are located. Some bottles are strewn across the left-hand wall, so if there are people sitting there, it makes it a little awkward to go look. Anyways, Bottles are also located in coolers along the back, right-hand side of this joint. Nice selection of foreign shit, and a relatively decent select of domestic shit, too. I canít say that this place blew my mind, but I will say that they had some surprises, none of which I purchased. Prices were a little high, actually. Tap list was solid. Overall, an enjoyable experience, if you were to go here first, but if youíve already been to Belmont Station and Johnís, donít expect to be blown away. Cheers. Rumor is theyíre moving, too.

Incredible jewel of a bottle shop located right off U of Oregonís campus. Nice bar at the entrance with a phenomenal selection of local rotating handles. Referís in the back stock a plethora of 12oz and 22oz singles - lots of west coast selections featuring small-time Oregon breweries with a nice range of northern to southern California mainstays (Green Flash, AleSmith, etc) that are rare finds in my area. Staff was not overly friendly but they were pretty busy so Ill give them a pass on that. Did not have time to sample the restaurant but it smelled fantastic and I saw a few thick hot sandwiches making their way to different tables. Everything looked clean and the decor was sharp.

Great selection, great food, knowledgeable staff and typically, good crowd, at least the ones at the bar. Selection is pretty good, even for someone like me from NY, but add the Eugene-type service, and you have a winner. This is one place that I would love to come back.

This place is heaven. Eugene residents, you have the best nugget of Paradise Iíve ever been to. Amazing bottle selection, amazing draft selection and one of the best sandwiches Iíve ever had. I wish all beer stores were like this place.

This place is tremendous. The tap selection is well thought out and quite tasty. Firestone Walker Double Jack was phenomenal on draft. Bottle selection is killer as well - canít really ask for more. Staff was really friendly and helpful, although it is generally "self service" - order at the counter and they bring you food, etc. Ambiance is nice - quaint size, good beer decor, music wasnít too loud, etc. Pretty much beer nirvana. Food was great too - I expected typical pub fare, but it is much much better. Dishes were very tasty - hummus was really good, my pannini was excellent, fresh salad that was crisp and healthy. If I lived in Eugene, I would be there all the time... I give this place very high marks, and I would put this up against (and prefer it to) Monkís Cafe, Toronado, HopCat, etc. I love all of those places, but this is really a well done pub/store.

The Bier Stein in Eugene was a shock for me. I was not sure what to expect but it certainly was not what I saw. Tons of awesome barley pop awesomeness. This is one great place. Loved the bottle selection over 800 with tons I had never seen. The tap selection was also off the hook. Great food, beer and taps I was just wishing I could have slept there. Right off the campus I bet the college kids who appreciate beer love this place.

Continent-spanning, encyclopedic selection. Very friendly, knowledgeable, fast service. Select food items are excellent, others above average. Excellent specials and weekly events, rare beers. Tap list is astounding, always regional and craft brews, a european beer or two, an abbey or trappist on tap, a barleywine or a malt liquor. Decor is less good but vibrant energy compensates. Always packed during happy hour with fellow beer-lovers, college kids, couples, the local craft brewers after their day at work.

A very cool place. Iíve never seen so many bottles in one place. Although, with that many bottles I wonder at how fresh any of it is. I bought a 12 pack to go and bout half of them tasted oxidized. Maybe more is sometimes less. This is not a good place to take children unless they are older. They donít even have a highchair on premise. So leave the kids at home.
