Used to come here back in the middle to late 2000 when you could find old bottles of stuff like Fantome and Cantillon on the shelf regularly. Those days are gone and these days you find old beer on the shelf and usually stuff that shouldn’t be like Pilsner or IPA. These days with other top quality bottle shops in town, not worth the drive out from downtown IMO.

A pretty weird spot with a massive selection. The prices are pretty good but I’d be wary of freshness here. The staff are knowledgeable but pretty creepy. Much like the building itself. Didn’t eat or anything.

The place looks like a crappy little super market, but it has one of the best beer selections we’ve ever seen. Decent prices, and a mind numbing variety to choose from. We <3 John’s.

John’s marketplace is basically an oversized, brightly lit if a bit run-down convenience store. If Bottleworks is Seattle’s version of Belmont Station, North Star Beer Market is Seattle’s version of Johns Marketplace. Cases and cases of west coast options, some hard to find. A much bigger selection of Belgians than I’ve seen elsewhere in Portland. You get the sense that by hunting through the dusty back shelves you might find some interesting rarities -- but it’s not clear how appropriate the conditions would have been for aging over time.

John’s Marketplace is a huge place packed with beer. If all or even most of their offerings were available in 12 ounce bottles, I’d give full credit for selection. Most of their bottles are bombers, and while they have many hundreds if not well over a thousand beers, I’m not always sharing a bottle and don’t 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!

It’s an old grocery store that’s 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 John’s? It’s like a fat girl who’s 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 don’t mean that in a positive way.) I typically get decent service if I ask, but I also think I’ve been lied to on a number of occasions when I’m told they don’t know what beer I’m talking about. I dunno, I’ll stop in once in awhile because it’s on my way to a friend’s house, but I wouldn’t recommend it if you can go elsewhere.

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.

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 I’ve 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.
