Looks pretty unassuming from the outside, and seems like nothing special when you walk in. But, wow, what an amazing beer selection. 10 doors worth of coolers, 15 or so big rack shelves, and more displays. Seems like they have just about everything made on an ongoing basis in Belgium. The Pacific Northwest selection is awesome, the California selection is dazzling, and as you move farther east it gets slightly less amazing. Great selection of UK and some Germans, too. Awesome staff--kind, laid-back, helpful. Without a doubt it’s worth the drive from Seattle, especially to see what we’ve been missing on store shelves up here.

Hole in the wall store with fairly friendly staff. Selection is not as good as I had thought it would be. A lot of belgiums but not enough other kinds. Since I don’t care for belgiums it wasn’t that awesome, but could have handled more selection.

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.

I think the reason that this place has such an amazing selection of beer, is that beyond those in the know and those that live int he nieghborhood, it looks like a shit hole groacery store. I would not volunteer to come down to this part of Portland if I did not know any better. Pretty decent beer selection, pretty comprabale prices, but their definitely have it when it comes to imports and Belgians, alot of the Micros you can find elsewhere, but there are a few hidden gems and specialties. I guess it is much cooler for those who live out of town. I wonder about the storage, and the lighting, which is all flourescent. I have never purchased beer here, only gone in and looked around at their selection, which is ample. I just wonder about the quality and the dedication to temperature.

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.

Many a time I have found myself in the situation of having way too much fun here. Every time I go to Portland this always on my list of destinations. The prices are pretty good and the selection is usually very good. I’ve never really found the staff to be good or bad, just there. Check it out

This place is an anomaly. The rectangular rambler with flourescent lighting reminds you so much of quickie marts around the globe it’s hard to believe the selection of beer within. This place is basically a 7/11 with shleves of beer distribution madness. It is as though every distributor in Oregon decided to use this little convenience store as its wharehouse. The only unforgivable problem with this place is the lack of refrigeration for much of the product. Only that which needs to be picked up and drunken shortly thereafter (sixers of some popular micros) is actually cooled. I am saddened that you can no longer find Westvleteren, but all in all this is the quintessential beer store in Portland...perhaps the Northwest.

The best selection I have been able to find in Oregon. I could spend a couple hours looking at the beers in this place.

Scary large selection of beer, but questionable age and handling of a lot of was hot outside and in when I was there (no A/C?), one of the "coolers" was actually warm and dripping wet inside (with Fantome in there, horror!), lots of the bottles on the shelves were dust-covered and probably lightstruck. Has a cheap grocery store ambiance rather than that of a geeky wine/beer store. Seemingly no one on hand who knew squat about the beer either...zombies working the register for the most part. This place, I think, struggles with quantity over quality and doesn’t have the ability (or desire?) to store their beer properly. Similar dilemma for the wine...would definitely not buy my wine here. So I have mixed feelings about this place...huge selection but a few of the things I bought were in poor condition...either oxidized or skunky.

Really nice store to visit after living in selection challenged Michigan. So much variety!!! Service was great, when I picked up a Hale’s BW they let me know that they had gotten the two previous years in also. Only knock would be the storage of the product but I haven’t seen any bottles with ill effects yet.

Ok, how does a small supermarket get a 4 for ambiance? Stuff it with 800 different beers. It’ll do it everytime. You have to see it to believe it. Best selection in Oregon. I’ve seen some comments questioning the handling/storage of their beer. I honestly can’t remember getting anything that wasn’t in great condition.
