I always make a stop at Belmont Station and Horse Brass when I am in Portland, and never have been disappointed. Yes, John's Market has more beers, but the storage of beers in the back cooler insures freshness. Also the staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
I recently noticed that some of the beer is of the collectable/archiveable variety. Fish brewing Leviathan and Poseidan (in 1.5L) were from 2002 (not made in 2003). Some of the belgians are also older (read better and more balanced).
To quote the Beastie Boys, this is one place you need to "Ch-check it out."

A cool hole in the wall kind of place on Belmont, next to a good pub. Nice selection of beer! Not nearly good as John's Marketplace in Multnomah Village, but still pretty good. They focus on the more popular beers (popular with domestic/imported beer lovers- not swill drinkers) instead of having everything. Fun selection of British candy. Certainly worth checking out.

Really a nice place in an excellent location. Plus, my wife didn't get bored while I was looking because there was plenty of other things to look at, including candy.

The beer lined wall was quite impressive. Many I hadn't seen anywhere else. Also, a nice collection of glassware and other paraphernalia. The atmosphere is quite pleasant, and somewhat authentic. Some generic brit-pop was on the system to top it off. Only bought 1 bottle, but also some caramel, short bread, and postcards.

What a brilliant idea - put a beer store right next door to a fantastic bar! Do these guys know what they're doing or what!!

I love going to this store because there's nothing in here to offend a beer drinker with refined tastes - ie., no Bud, Coors, or any Macro for that matter. The store is not terribly large, but it's entirely dedicated to mirco beers, an outstanding selection of English and other imported beers, and all sorts of beer paraphernalia.

I didn't rate the selection a five because first, it's Oregon, and nowhere in this state can you find a good selection of anything from the East, and second, there are a few other stores with a few more choices. However, the strength of this store are the folks who work there and know loads about the stuff they sell. The small and somewhat cozy size means that you always get very personal service, and it's always a treat to talk with folks who want to chat about beer.

Overall, a great store.

A beer lover's dream - wonderful selection of beer, one of the best. After moving from Portland, OR to Portland, ME, I was in need of a NW beer infusion. The people at Belmont Station worked with me and I recieved four cases of NW Christmas beer in early December - I'm still holding some for next (this) year.

Not a bad place to get some great beer on the East side of town here in Portland. Although, I do wish they had a way of having the customers write down their request. Perhaps a simple note pad could to the trick, especially if you're planning on purchasing several different styles of beer.

Update 10-05-2002: Well, I still wished they had a piece of paper lying around so they don't forget what you requested. They missed my Bigfoot Barleywine today. They also double dinged me for the beer deposite.

I have mail ordered beer from here once. The beer did not get delivered to my door. Rather, I had to drive to a shipping company and pick it up. I ordered 3 Alaskan brands and 1 Rogue. The beer was fresh and very good. The delivery was fast. Shipping was costly. One thing I don't like about this delivery store is that you can't buy singles. You have to buy cases.
