I have now given up on John’s 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 can’t 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.

Doesn’t look like much on the outside, which continues on into the inside. Lots of beer, lots of variety and not really organized. One of those places you need lots of time in. Big and unique European selection and some stuff that would be considered hard to find. Helpful in a gruff manner and pricing is pretty decent. A good stop if you want obscure Euro stuff.

Visited on 26/05/13 in the evening. Ramshackle bottle shop perhaps 5 miles from downtown. Has a dive bar kind of feel to it, pretty spartan shelving and decor, beers kind of organised by European country vs US but also a disorganised feel to it. Good European selection, which didn’t interest me but worth noting. Some beers in fridges but largely on shelving. Nice stop but if you’re time is limited I would hit the likes of Belmont and Beermongers first up.

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. Can’t recommend this place enough.

Rastacouere  (702) Montreal, Quebec | October 10, 2012
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, it’s 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 don’t know about through their IPA and John’s 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.

PorterPounder  (549) Tallahassee, Florida | August 12, 2012
Visited here in August ’12. 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 geek’s paradise.

Man, this place is a beer mecca. Loads of bottles, cases, glasses, and just general beery goodness. I’m not sure how the beer stores since it’s 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 didn’t know a ton when I was there, but that’s 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 you’re 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.

best bottle and can selection in OR. Gotta be careful of age on some stuff, otherwise a bargain.
