This is the place!!! A few great taps. not too many, that way the beer stays fresh. if you donít like the taps, grap a temp controlled bottle, and theyíll open it for you. Discount if you just want to shop. Bought some really great goodies!!! Better than Bottleworks. Freindlier too.
This place it tops for finding unusual and hard to get beers!! Seating capacity is only moderate.....but people without seats are encouraged to oggle the refrigerator cases for interesting beer labels WHILE SIPPING THEIR TAP POUR!! Friendly. Great conversation place.....can get kinda loud at times, but thats just cuz everyone feels so comfortable. Selection is of course awesome, with over 900 beer choices....and food is pretty decent. Some excellent sandwiches and appetizers. No fries or onion rings is the only minus on the food side. Only way to improve this place is expand....or maybe get some dart boards. Donít miss going here while in the Eugene / Springfield area.
Excellent selection, with a fantastic layout of their beers. They even show how recently it was tapped and how much is left, which is awesome! Their selection of bottled beers is also great and the people who work their know their stuff. Food is also pretty awesome.
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.
I love this place. I usually get my beers to go, so havenít sampled many of the foods. I have had the nachoís, which werenít my style, but the fun we had made up for it. If you like beer, this is the place for you. With over 700 beers, how could you go wrong. It does seem like a little hole in the wall until you go inside, then you notice it is bright and airy with big picture windows to just sit and watch the world go by. However, the fun of this place is the way people of every persuasion can get along and talk beer. Loud or soft it just brings everyone together. The folks behind the counter always have a smile on and truely understand if you drool in front of the coolers for long stretches at a time. However, they will be quick to tell you that it is a waste of time to sit and stare, when you could be drinking your next great brew. I gotta agree.
By far the best place in Eugene, the owner Chip has done amazing things with this place. Very small place, but feels more spacious inside, set up very European like, you get to eat with strangers often. The beer selection is amazing and very well kept. You can either get beer with your meal or take it to go. The food was excellent and the service top notch. Wish this place had been there when I was still in school.
Took forever, but I finally made it down to Chipís place. This place is awesome. Beer is everywhere. Lots of GOOD beer, with a 15% discount for "to go" beer. They even have the proper glassware for everything. Everyone there was knowledgeable and very friendly/helpfull. Had a couple of sandwiches (went twice) and both were great. Itís great when the owner and wife are actually running the place. WARNING - Donít park in the lot next door. Itís been converted to a pay lot and they will tow you.

Ok, itís been a while, and itís time to update this rating. The Bier Stein is still the premier place to go in Eugene for quality beer. If you drank somewhere else on accident, go do your penance immediately. If you drank somewhere else on purpose, thatíll be 20 "Hail Chip"ís. Everything is still awesome and itís still the best. They DO have a TV now, despite what the profile says. But good luck finding a seat for the game unless you get there early.
