Belmont Station was the first stop on our intense beer tour of Portland. And what a stop!

I entered through the "Bier Cafe", where the tap list is quite outrageous: HUB Kentucky Xmas, Struise Black Damnation, Blackberry Albert, Deschutes Black XXIII, Ninkasi Pravda, Goose Island Class of 88, Full Sail Imperial Porter '12... good shit! Bartenders are not the friendliest folks, but they are efficient enough. The bar section of the station is small and a bit cramped, but I still found room at the bar. The best is to go next door and browse for brews while drinking beer.

The retail area is also small but so chock-full of goodies, you won't believe it. There is a barrel-aged section, including Eclipse, Big Bad Baptist, Double DBA and Rye on Rye. Also a variety of Alesmith barrel-aged stuff and even a vintage shelf with a 2007 Abyss for 40 dollars.

Service here is much friendlier and helpful than at the bar. Prices are high, no doubt. Quality is obscene. This place is wow!

This place is always so fun to visit. I've lived in Portland 15 years & have been deeply connected with its beer serving establishments. This place is top shelf in my opinion. Great selection of beer from around the world in the store & an excellent selection of rotating taps at the pub. Great neighborhood hang out vibe & a beer lovers heaven. Outdoor tables available & the sandwiches have always been good. I love this place! Clearance beers for cheap & discounts if you pay with cash at the store. Mixed six packs are allowed, which is way cool. Go visit if you are in Portland.

Can't wait to get back here! When I was in PDX with the girlfriend we made a stop at Belmont Station before dinner so we only stayed for about 15 minutes and I didn't get to really spend time at the bar area. For an out-of-towner, the selection was almost overwhelming because of how much high quality local OR beer was available. Only in town for a couple more nights, I grabbed a 4-pack of Block 15 Sticky Hands and a bottle of Crux Half Hitch Mosaic DIPA. The Sticky Hands was a recommendation by the employee who was more than happy to help me look for a good local beer.

Always really liked this place. The one spot EVERYONE from Portland or visiting Portland seems to mention. Been there a couple times and I've never been disappointed. I love going to the Beer Cafe first to grab a couple samples or a pint before shopping. Tap list is solid top to bottom, representing a lot of different styles and breweries. I like how you can order different sizes to try a bunch or just focus on one beer. Food is tasty too! The bottle shop has an amazing selection that might be a bit pricey. Still, you can get a lot of great brews in one place so it's worth it. A great venue to visit or frequent.

Was very excited to visit this shop on a recent trip to Portland. Had heard many good things. Definitely a decent selection, but I wasn't blow away. Prices were a bit high for sure. I would go back, but not spectacular.

Stopped in to the bottle shop during a recent visit to Portland. Found several beers on my list, in addition to several more I wanted to try. I don't know if their selection is better than most, but they certainly have a lot of different beers. It's on my list next trip to Portland.

Hands down THE best shop in Portland. Only possible gripe is some of the selection is scattered, but if you bring in your list (they have a list online updated every Tues and Fri), the staff knows exactly where to find all of the beers. Cash price is cheaper than debit. Cream of the crop in the city.

I visited Belmot Station recently on a vacation through the Pacific Northwest. This review is for the bottle shop only.

V: Pretty standard bottle shop.

Ser: Average. No one acknowledged me during my visit until I was at the register.

Sel: Good, but nothing too unique during my visit.

Overall, a very good shop that didn't seem to have anything unique while I was there. However, if I lived in Portland this would be a regular stop.
