Best feature was the patio with tons of tables, great on the sunny day we visited. Really nice tap list, tons of bottles, lots of interesting stuff.

3fourths  (1567) Boulder, Colorado | September 7, 2010| Updated June 7, 2013
now one of the best beer bars in portland, and a staple every time i visit. opened by a former long-time employee of Toronado SF, the space is large but most of it is occupied by a beer garden populated with picnic tables. the inside is cycling themed, the draft list is impossible to miss as it’s on a widescreen LCD above the bar. they’ll mix local/regional micros with german and belgian imports (first place I’ve seen Dupont Avril on tap). small but quality bottle selection. wicked pinball games too.

Visited on a Monday afternoon in November 2015. Large industrial style establishment. Great long bar, some pinball machines and a shed load of decent beer from OR and mostly local states. Boneyard and Russian River beers on draft is always good. Decent prices. Great bar. Must visit if in Portland.

Small space, huge patio and cash only. Beer taps too many to count and no servers. Sounds bleak, but this no muss no fuss no food and only beer place is a staple especially when the weather is nice.

First off: CASH ONLY! They do have an ATM here, but you will be charged $3, though if you bring the receipt up to the bar, they will give you $1 off your next order.

Obligatory stop in Portland. Not the hugest interior to this place with maybe a couple dozen seats at the bar and some small standing area. Mostly an outside place with a number of long communal tables.

The draft list is pretty huge and during my visit, almost all Oregon beers including a huge emphasis on hoppy beers. Lots of Boneyard IPAs in particular. Nice! Great bottle selection as well and the bottles are pretty reasonably priced. Just about all the draft beers are $5 with some pour sizes varying depending on the beer.

Between Ferris, Duffman, myself, and my other So Cal non-degenerate ticker friends, we did some serious damage here and had a great time.

Can’t knock the selection here. Actually, you can’t really dislike APEX period. Exciting tap choice to satisfy the thirsts of even the staunchest beer geek. Shame it was rained out and couldn’t enjoy drinking on the patio. Next time...

Visited on Tues 6th November ’12 around 2pm. We were the only folks in there till two others arrived around the time we left an hour later so ambiance defaults to a 3. Great selection on tap including FSW - Parabola, Boneyard Suge Knite ’11 and plenty of other big beers. Bar tender was attentive and helpful and gave us a few samples to try. Beers are displayed on an electronic screen by the bar. Definite place to come again just hope to see a few more bodies in the place and crank the atmosphere up a little !

This gets my vote for best pub in Portland and we stop every time we’re in town. 50 taps which are updated live on the website. I always feel like a kid in a candy shop with all the amazing beers available. Prices are ridiculously low, especially since they give you the option of ordering in 12, 6 or 3 oz. pours. Minus the disclaimer, this is an awesome place and I will keep going back. Disclaimer: One of the two servers I’ve ever had (the guy) is super friendly and helpful; the woman who works there is likely the biggest c*nt of a server I’ve ever had. I stopped tipping after receiving such asinine service from her, and she had the stupor to call me out for not tipping, as though her tip should be a prerequisite for giving me good service. I attempted to rectify things upon leaving, but she then proceeded to attempt to belittle my note-taking and ordering of small pours. Not sure what wiring is wrong in her brain. Management should fire her ass ASAP.

Visited midday on a Wednesday. Very close to The Beer Mongers on a bust section of SE Division Street. New looking place with an enormous patio out front with tons of picnic tables, with more bike racks then I have ever seen in one place. The interior features 2 big garage doors that open to the patio, along with a pinball room, a few tables and seats at the bar. 50 or great beers on draft along with 250 bottles (also available to go). The website was perfectly up to date, which is always appreciated. Interesting music playing, though a bit loud inside, despite the sparse crowd. There is a burrito place next door that people were ordering from. This seems to be focused on being the local for the independent bike culture. As noted by others, cash only.

82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Beershine  (850) VANCOUVER, British Columbia | August 4, 2014
Only came here once, so trying not to gush but I loved this place! Wish we could have revisited. I loved they had Adambier on the same taplist as swill I would never drink. Actually the selection was pretty deep with a great variety of styles and although not all local, there were lots of Oregonian brews. Loved the unpretentious lively atmosphere, the huge patio. Loved the self-serve model. Had to bat my eyelashes just to get a wee taste before buying something (normally they want you to buy a taster) but otherwise the service was pretty good considering how busy it was.
